Manager of the week – Salah Buffoon!!! – Jitesh Lakhani – 74 points

A second manager of the week award for Salah Buffoon!!! Their last, in GW8, helped them jump into the top 40 and came largely as a result of sticking the armband on Eden Hazard and reaping the rewards of a double figure haul. Ditto this week. Hazard’s first 10+ total in nine weeks has helped the Buffoons rise into the top 30. Hazard scored a goal and a noteworthy fifth assist in four games to help Chelsea to victory over Brighton. Chelsea’s good festive fixture run might enable Hazard to produce more of the same – although it does appear that he’s ended the week with a yellow flag next to his name.

Player of the week – Henrikh Mkhitaryan – Arsenal – 14 points

Bargain of the week – Danny Ings – Southampton – 13 points

Southampton’s impressive win over Arsenal provides both the player awards this week. Does this prove it’s better to pump more money into your midfield than it does into your attack? Danny Ings’ brace and top bonus comes in at 11 points to Mkhitaryan’s 12 (2 goals plus 2 bonus points), and so he somewhat unluckily, given the match result, has to settle for the bargain award.

The Arsenal side that looked so impressive in the North London derby haven’t fulfilled that fantasy point-scoring promise, particularly Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who many managers instantly transferred in as a result of his performance against Spurs. Mkhitaryan gave way at half time in that game and has only played 45 minutes in each of the games since, so it would have been hard to predict his involvement here, never mind the likelihood of him netting twice.

Attention may switch to Danny Ings again as it did in the early weeks of the season. The Southampton striker needs to stay fit having just come back from a six week lay off. He and Salomon Rondon appear to be the only viable sub £6 million striking options on the table at the moment.

Twat of the week – Laurent Koscielny – Arsenal – 0 points

And to complete the set. It’s not the return to first team action that Koscielny would have wanted, but worth noting that he lasted the full 90 minutes and starts at a reasonably priced £5.4million. You’d expect him to be a regular, maybe once the busy festive schedule is out the way, so definitely worth keeping an eye on. Arsenal need to improve defensively and maybe Koscielny will help them do that.

Goal of the week – Gerard Deulofeu. A game full of good goals…

…and no vid to prove it.
