PSG’s reign at the top lasted only one week as NaboombuDirtyYellows hit the front for the first time since gameweek three. Leapfrogging four teams into fourth are RayCrawfordsCrackers who posted the highest total of the week of 89 points. Crawfords gained 15 points from our player of the week, Tom Heaton, and their Ageuro replacement, Robin Van Persie, who contributed 22 points as captain.
It was as simple as looking to United and Arsenal for the replacements for Aguero, and to a number of big name players all creeping into form, and earning regular starting berths because of that. Both had two players in double figures. As well as Van Persie, Juan Mata, who is probably benefiting from Angel Di Maria’s absence, bagged 14 points. Santi Cazorla is another getting a run of games of late. He scored two goals and picked up 14 points. And Olivier Giroud made his first meaningful points contribution since his return from injury with two goals and full bonus marks, amassing 13 points.
The raft of suspensions and injuries didn’t seem to affect too many Buckets teams. It appears most had to make at least two transfers, but in a week of few surprises and comfortable victories for the big boys, there were plenty of points on offer. Alexis Sanchez moved ahead of Aguero in the player standings with the nine points he picked up at the weekend. He becomes the second player to pass the 100 point barrier on 107 points.
Player of the week – Tom Heaton – 15 points. Penalty save + clean sheet = all the bonus marks.
Bargain of the week – Steven Naismith – 12 points. Early season favourite back in the points.
Donkey of the week – Tom Huddlestone – -2 points. Made sure Filipe Luis didn’t dive, unlike the rest of the Cheslea team.
Goal of the week – Olivier Giroud (2nd goal). Hardly a bumper week.
