Game-week 3 is over, and now we are into the international break which gives us all an extra week to mull over our teams and look at potential transfers (headaches)! Anyway here is what game-week 3 produced in terms of the Dream Team:
So in goal we have Rob Green, who managed to tally up 9 points after keeping a clean sheet and making 6 saves in QPR’s 1-0 won over Sunderland. The R’s keeper player very well in the game, however he will be tested in their next game against Manchester United and their new fire power. If he manages to keep a clean sheet in this game, it will be an exceptional feat.
At the back we have Alberto Moreno who managed to tally up a total of 13 points, after he scored his first Liverpool goal and managed to keep a clean sheet in their 0-3 win at Tottenham. The Spanish defender managed to score with his only shot of the game and he was also successful in 4 out of his 5 attempted tackles.
Erik Pieters is the second defender to make it into the game-week 3 Dream Team, after he and Stoke managed to keep a clean sheet. He also assisted Mame Biram Diouf in their only goal of their amazing 0-1 win at the Etihad. Pieters played a crucial part in Stoke’s clean sheet managing 4 interceptions and also completing 100% of his attempted clearances.
Finally, we have Mike Williamson who completes the 3 defenders in the back 3 of the Dream Team. Williamson managed to score an 87th minute goal in Newcastle’s 3-3 draw against Crystal Palace. The centre back also managed to complete a massive 43 passes, only failing in 8 attempts and also completing all of his aerial duels (9).
This week we have a 5 man midfield, the first of those being Nathan Dyer who scored two goals in Swansea’s third consecutive win of the season, against West Brom. This brought him 3 bonus points and was also named as the top player in this week’s fantasy football. Dyer only managed 2 attempts on goal, but was clinical hitting the back of the net both times.
Southampton’s Morgan Schneiderlin makes it into this week’s Dream Team after he also scored two goals in their 1-3 win over West Ham. The French midfielder is showing fantastic potential, completing a massive 90 out of his 98 passing attempts, whilst also having 4 attempts on goal.
In this weeks Dream Team, we have three Chelsea players after their emphatic 6-3 win over Everton. The first player from the Blues squad is Nascimento Ramires, who scored one goal and assisted two others, giving him a total of 13 points after he collected a single bonus too. Ramires managed 5 out of his 6 clearances for Chelsea, whilst scoring with his only attempt on goal.
The second Chelsea player to make it into the Dream Team is Nemanja Matic who picked up 12 points by scoring and assisting a goal, which also gave him two bonus points. Matic also managed to complete all 3 of his take-ons and also created a total of 2 chances with 1 being scored.
The final place in this weeks midfield is the ever consistent for Swansea Gylfi Sigurdsson, who takes his place in the Dream Team for the second time this season with 11 points. The Icelandic play-maker assisted 2 goals in Swansea’s 0-3 win over West Brom, also earning himself 2 bonus points. He managed to complete a massive 50 passes out of 57 attempted throughout the match.
We have two up top this week, with Andreas Weimann being the first, who scored a goal and assisted another in Aston Villa’s 2-1 win over Hull City. The Austrian achieved 3 bonus points and managed to score with his only shot in the game, also completing 22 passes out of 30 attempts with nearly 50% of those being forward.
The final place in the game-week 3 Dream Team goes to the ‘injured’ Diego Costa. The Spaniard was supposedly injured and a doubt to feature, however he started and scored two goals, along with a yellow card and 3 bonus points, giving him a total of 12 points. The Spaniard had 4 attempts on goal, scoring 2, and his defensive capabilities were also impressive completing 4 out of 5 tackles attempted.
