Manager of the month – Dean Cripps – Kompany & Co – 289 points

The Vinegar Pissers lead the way going into the weekend but it’s Kompany & Co that take the prize. They also switched places – 3rd and 4th – in the overall league. Kompany’s key player was Nacho Monreal. The Arsenal defender added 15 points to their score. And you probably hadn’t noticed, but that’s four shut-outs on the spin now from Wenger’s team.

Manager of the week – Stu Smith – FTM – 91 points

FTM were probably hoping for a few goals from Harry Kane, a clean sheet from Phil Jones, another dominant Man City display and maybe a piece of magic from Philippe Coutinho to amass a healthy score this week. They got all those things, but the 16 ridiculous points picked up by Marouanne Fellaini probably wasn’t expected, and it’s what pushed them to the top of the weekly charts just ahead of Neil Madrid, who gave us the first glimpse of the potential power of the fee hit.

Player of the week – Marouane Fellaini – 16 points.

This will never happen again. Not even Marouane Fellaini has Marouane Fellaini in his fantasy team.

Bargain of the week – Stephen Ward – 12 points

Second in the bonus charts for defenders and third in the bonus charts overall, Ward and the Burnley back line look the best of the cheap options in that area of the park at the moment.

Twat of the week – Tommy Smith – 0 points

It’s hard to believe that still no Palace players have landed at the bottom of the weekly charts given the amount of goals they’re shipping. Luckily for them there’s always someone slightly more expensive shipping as many goals each week. Palace players are so uninvolved they’re not even getting sent off.

Goal of the week – Philippe Coutinho.

It’s the end of August. We have a manager of the month. And an international break. A fortnight off – which is handy, because I’m off on holiday.

4 Fuchs Ake are our first prize winners. They finish the month at the top of the table on 184 points, four clear of The Craggy Islanders. I speculated last week that the winner could come from deep within the pack and that was the case. 4 Fuchs Ake leapt from 13th to 1st with an impressive 66 point total. Last week’s leaders, 30:19, fell to 6th, posting only 37 points. Jeff Lamp’s Porsche climbed from 20th to 3rd on the back of a 65 point total. The highest weekly scorers were FTM with 69 points. They were able to jump 25 places in the table from 36 up to 11th.

4 Fuchs Ake hit the top courtesy of our player of the week, Alexis Sanchez, who, as Arsenal finally clicked into gear, scored 16 points, and by handing the captaincy to Eden Hazard. Jeff Lamp’s took the same captaincy option – a shrewd move given that neither Sergio or Zlatan could muster anything other than their appearance points this week. Hazard looks fresh after his year off and is the leading points scorer, edging ahead of the two strikers. He’s one of only two players – the other being Diego Costa – to have either scored or assisted in all three games. It’s a stat that suggests this Chelsea team – without European football remember – could be serious contenders for the title – and masses of fantasy points.

FTM’s highest weekly score was helped in no small part by Raheem Sterling’s impressive display against West Ham in which he scored twice and picked up the big bonus marks. Sterling looks fresh after his summer off. His patchy form last season gave him a relatively low starting value. It looks like that has already started to rise on the back of this performance.

It was a week in which three penalties were saved. Artus Boruc’s save from Yohan Cabaye demoted the Frenchman to our donkey of the week award. Lukasz Fabianski kept out Riyad Mahrez’s spot kick. I think we’re all OK with the fact that Mahrez probably won’t replicate his totals of last season, but it’s a slight worry that this was his third penalty miss in 12 months. Shay Given kept out Leighton Baines’ penalty only for it to rebound off the post and then the back of his head to find it’s way into the net. Both did alright out of it. Given was awarded points for the save and five more bonus marks for his performance and the eight other saves he made in the match. Baines was curiously credited with the assist to the goal as well as his clean sheet points. You’d have got 17 points out of two players – one of whom scored an own goal and the other who missed a pen.

 

Player of the week – Alexis Sanchez – 16 points. Arsenal wake up.

Bargain of the week – Shay Given – 10 points. One of nine second choice keepers who made appearances at the weekend.

Donkey of the week – Yohan Cabaye – -1 points. Miserable start by Palace.

Goal of the week – Eden Hazard.
