Normal service has been resumed. It was an eventful run up to the gameweek – what with nearly everyone buying someone and breaking their transfer record to do it. I could have spent the entire preview piece going through the new signings and who might make an impact. As it happened, most made their debuts from the bench, and hardly any scored big points. Sadio Mane, Steven Defour and Christian Benteke appear on page one of the highest weekly scores – they’re the only three.

The main talking point was the ban handed out to Sergio Aguero following the elbowing incident against West Ham before the international break – and the fact that it was ahead of the most blown out of all proportion/anticipated game of the early season. Three matches in total – but only two Premier League gameweeks – the other game being City’s League Cup tie against Swansea next week. Over a million managers across the game dispensed with his services, although I have noticed him lingering on a few Buckets benches. You might have expected Zlatan to be the player most other managers turned to, but Alvaro Negredo was ahead of the Manchester United striker as the most transferred player in. Closely followed by Diego Costa. Of those three, it was the Chelsea madman who contributed the most points. It’s also worth noting he picked up his third booking in four games. He may be the perfect replacement for Aguero, whose return from suspension could well coincide with a ban for Costa for reaching five yellows.

The perfect replacement, however, would have been Romelu Lukaku. Not many people took a punt on the Everton striker. Not scoring a league goal for six months probably had something to do with that. When Harry Met Alli, nO fucHs given and Uriah’s were the main beneficiaries of Lukaku’s 11 minute hat trick. Uriah’s and nO fucHs made him captain – thus contributing 34 points to their score. Everton players added another 14 points to Uriah’s total enabling them to jump over 20 places and into the top 10 off the back of just one game.

When Harry Met Alli jumped nine places to move to the top of the table employing both Costa (as captain) and Lukaku. Their 41 points contribute towards a total of 79 which was the second highest total of the week. The highest weekly scorers were To Elland Back. Their 80 points catapulted them 23 places from 26th to third. They also handed Costa the armband and he was ably assisted by Robert Snodgrass, Roberto Firmino and Harry Kane who also all found the back of the net.

We’ve two new recruits, which has expanded the prize pot and slightly altered the cup format, so check the relevant links to see those updates. That’s the deadline for new admissions. We’ve 53 managers – that’s amazing. It’s even created a page two relegation zone on the website.*

 

Player of the week – Heung Min Son – 19 points. Crushing Stoke, the early season whipping boys.

Bargain of the week – Etienne Capoue – 13 points. Three goals in four games!!!

Donkey of the week – Robert Huth – -1 points. Remember, they couldn’t keep a clean sheet for the first half of last season either.

Goal of the week – Steven Defour. A good week this week.

 

*No-one will actually be relegated – don’t worry.
