That was a hectic 7 days! 5 game days in a week, an overhaul announcement and points galore. GW21 was action packed and some hit the heights of 200 points in a single week!
We got the news Liverpool’s rescheduled fixture will be played before the Overhaul opens which meant there was and is opportunities to gain extra games bringing in Liverpool players, a big change from what we were initially expecting.
Allison and Liverpool were the only keeper to keep 2 CS. Fabianski came back from injury to save a penalty and keep a CS on David Moyse’s first game. He’s got a single game day in the first match of next GW. 9 keepers kept clean sheets over their 2 games.
All 4 Liverpool defenders picked up 20 points each! Both CBs hit Tier 2 passing twice while Robertson picked up an assist and TAA a questionable MOTM. Sokratis £8.4m scored a massive 17 pointer against Man Utd with a goal, CS and MOTM. Tomkins scored for palace against Southampton and was MOTM. However, fixtures aren’t too favourable for the Eagles. Fredricks benefited from West Ham’s first game under Moyse. He assisted and made his 5th tackle bonus of the season as his side won 4-0. Dunk picked up his 3rd assist of the season, made passing bonus and 1 CS. He looks even more nailed with Burn out for over 6 weeks. Stephens returned his 3rd double digit haul in 4 games. He doubled his assist tally and kept a CS. He may be one to look at after the overhaul. Doherty scored his 3rd goal of the season against Man City and made SoT bonus against Watford. Azpilicueta scored his first of the campaign.
Aurier and Sidibé both made tackle bonus in both of their games. Apart from the Liverpool CBs, Evans made 60+ passes twice and Eric Garcia £6m got a rare two starts, picked up a CS and made 70+ passes twice.
KDB had a big 3 games, assisting twice and scoring once. He picked up an array of bonus points and returned his 6th MOTM of the season. He’s now owned by 94% of the top 1k. Noble £7.8m had a dream game in Moyse’s first game back. He braced and was the MOTM for a massive 19 pointer. Teammate Anderson scored and assisted in his 2 games. They’ve an extra game and a single game day to come. Traore went big against City with a goal and an assist but blanked against Liverpool and Watford. Buendia returned 18 points with 2 assists, SoT and tackle bonus and his first MOTM. Teammate Cantwell scored and made the same bonus. These Norwich mids look great value but fixtures are a mixed bag up until the overhaul. Richarlison scored against Man City, assisted and returned bonus against Newcastle. His fixtures are brilliant up until the overhaul.
Deulofeu £8.2m scores and assisted against Wolves, as well as picking up his 4th MOTM. Teammates Doucoure and Sarr scored and assisted in their two games. Watford’s fixtures are also good up until the overhaul. Jahanbakhsh £6.7m scored twice against Chelsea and Bournemouth. Maddison finally returned after 4 blanks. He scored, made 70+ passes and had 2 SoT. Grealish scored his 6th goal and 5th MOTM against a poor Burnley defence.
Rodri hit passing bonus in all 3 matches. Fernandinho hit tier 2 passing twice and tackling once. Henderson has made 60+ passes in all of his last 5 games. Moutinho added an assist to his 2 passing bonuses. Teammate Saiss returned Tier 2 passing twice and Tier 1 tackles. Kante has notched up tackle bonus in all of his last 3 games.
Perez came out of the blue to score 24 points in his 2 games. 3 assists, a goal and a MOTM! Mané and Ings scored in both of their games. Jesus, DCL £8.8m and Deeney all braced in one of their games and picked up MOTM. Sterling missed a pen and braced against Wolves but blanked in his next two. Jimenez scored and assisted against Wolves but ended his 9 week run of returns with 2 blanks. Salah scored against Sheffield Utd and peppered the goal, to end his 2 game drought. Rashford and Martial both scored against Burnley but blanked against Arsenal. Fixtures stiffen after Norwich. Kane scored once and returned SoT bonus twice but is now out injured until after the overhaul.
Friday: A Sheffield Utd defender or Henderson would’ve been my choice but now West Ham are benefiting from the new manager bounce. I wouldn’t be bringing SHU players in due to their tough fixtures afterwards.
Basically if you own anyone, captain them. If not avoid.
Saturday: Vardy against Southampton or a Liverpool attacker. Rashford or Abraham if you feel like a punt.
Sunday: KDB or a City attacker.
