We’re off. GW1 has delivered. We had a 100+, three 90+ and a top nine all above 80 points last season. We’ve arguably bettered that this season. Although not topping the century mark, we did see a third of our teams better 80 points. Just about everybody in the top half picked Mo Salah and Raheem Sterling. We all preferred Salah as the captain choice but it was the Man City man who came out on top in terms of points. He delivered a season starting hat trick in a regular routine victory over West Ham and with it came an almost instantaneous price rise. Cook Pass Babtridge’s week winning score owed more to their differential picks, namely Willy Boly and Divock Origi. Origi may not start again for a while once Sadio Mane’s back, but it was worth the one week punt at £5.5 million to get the 12 points he served up.

Manager of the week – Marcus Baker – Cook Pass Babtridge – 99 points

Player of the week – Raheem Sterling – Manchester City – 20 points

Bargain of the week – Eric Pieters – Burnley – 14 points

Twat of the week – Grant Hanley – Norwich City -2 points

Goal of the week – Tanguy Ndombele 

Debut goal. Looks like one to monitor. (1m12s in)

Manager of the week – Kebab Eaters United – Paul Howard – 82 points

There wasn’t much happening up front this week with just 20 goals scored and seven clean sheets. The biggest scores in the league were created by those with solid defences, not least the Kebab Eaters who amassed 43 points from their back five. The highest scoring being Lucas Digne with 12 points. That’s his third double digit haul in seven weeks – and his fifth attacking return in the same time. He’s Alonso-like in his ability to get forward, find a cross or belt in a free kick. He’s Doherty-like in his price.

Player of the week – Declan Rice – West Ham United – 15 points

Rice is classed as a defender but has been playing as a defensive midfielder. That never guarantees you any points anyway, but in a West Ham team not keeping clean sheets, even on this run of fixtures they’ve had against bottom half teams, purchasing him seems even more pointless, other than to fill a £4.4 million hole. And even if that’s what you are doing, you invariably benched him this weekend anyway, didn’t you?

Bargain of the week – Shane Long – Southampton – 12 points

Shane Long hasn’t scored since the 80’s. Maybe he can grab an opportunity, although it’s likely he’ll become nothing more than bench fodder (like Rice) to free up cash for more big hitters elsewhere. Danny Ings seems to be in and out with injury, Charlie Austin is the same and is misfiring when fit anyway. Under this new manager, who knows? Southampton do seemed to have turned a corner.

Twat of the week – Willy Boly – Wolverhampton Wanderers – -3 points

A week of close games and few goals until the last offering on Monday night when Wolves made a tricky task twice as hard by having a defender sent off after just 19 minutes. Are City back. So many managers ditched their prize assets after that run of three defeats in four. Since then they’ve beaten Liverpool and scored 19 goals in three games. Time to draft them all back in again.

Goal of the week – Andre Schurrle. He likes a shot. Finally one of them has gone in.
