Everton v WBA

  • 7 Goals
  • 5 Assists
  • 1 Yellow Card
  • 1 Red Card

DCL, or Dominic Calvert-Lewin if you’re not down with the whole brevity thing: A hat trick in just over 30 minutes of gameplay will raise his price tag to £7.2. Richarlison bagged himself a hat trick of assists this week to get you 12 points. A Yellow card for Doucouré, a Red for Gibbs and 2 saves for each Keeper rounds out the points in this tie.

Leeds v Fulham

  • 7 Goals (2 penalties)
  • 6 Assists
  • 3 Yellow Cards

Then it was Elland Road’s turn to witness a 4-3 win after the 4-3 defeat to Liverpool last week. Mitrovic gets himself two (2) goals, as does Bamford.

Manchester United v Crystal Palace

  • 4 Goals
  • 3 Assists
  • 3 Yellow Cards

Later on Saturday saw Palace visit Old Trafford, and the old flame Zaha turning the screw on his former club United. Bonus points for the only the Palace players Zaha (3) Townsend (2) and Schlupp.

Arsenal v West Ham United

  • 3 Goals
  • 3 Assists
  • 1 Yellow Card
  • Bonus points to Nketiah (3), Ceballos (2) and Lacazette.

Then, Arsenal had to deal with West Ham. If Willian’s impressive first week hat trick of assists had you fooled, fear not – you were not alone! Almost half a million FPL players took him in… to no avail.

Southampton v Tottenham

  • 7 Goals (from only 3 goal scorers)
  • 7 Assists (Harry Kane with 4)
  • 7 Yellow Cards

Sunday brought four more games with Spurs getting the early start. It did not disappoint those that dragged themselves out of bed. This week it was Harry Kane with the quad assist points, with son netting all four (4) of Kane’s assists. Danny Ings managed to bagg himself a brace.

Newcastle v Brighton & Hove Albion

  • 3 Goals
  • 3 Assists
  • 3 Yellows & a Red

Brighton went north to Newcastle and came away with three points and three (3) goals to the good. Thanks to a Neil Maupay brace inside the first seven minutes, he finished off his 90 with an assist to end the game.

Chelsea v Liverpool

  • 2 Goals
  • 1 Assist
  • 1 Red Card
  • 3 saves apiece for the GK’S with a penalty save for Alisson Becker.

Then came the fixture of the weekend! Chelsea and Liverpool at the Bridge, again not without its drama.  The second half surely belonged to Liverpool and Sadio Mané.
