Gameweek 31+ in Review

Finally, I’ve cracked 100 points, with a season high score of exactly 100! Two fantastic gameweeks into restart have brought me up around 200k ranks, now I just need to keep the momentum going. Much of my success this week is down to my inclusion to Ice Cold Tony Martial, who has finally rewarded my faith in keeping him over Bruno, who put up a blank. Lets take a look at what made this monster score possible.

Goalkeepers

Nick Pope: 10 points

After a season of consistently missing out on the Pope hauls, I finally caught a massive one. He didn’t have too much to do but snagged a save point and maximum bones. Good introduction to the team.

Alex McCarthy: 2 points

Contender for blunder of the year on the first goal he gave away to Eddie Nketiah. I hope this doesn’t affect his starting spot as I need him for my bench boost.

Defenders

Trent Alexander-Arnold: 14 points

Gargantuan. Essential. He banged a free kick in, top bins and kept an easy clean for the entire game. In fact, the easiest clean of the season, as Palace had 0 touches in the box the entire game and lost their only playmaker about ten minutes in.

Matt Doherty: 6 points

No attacking returns but yet another clean, Wolves have been one of the most watertight teams in league and with their upcoming run of fixtures I don’t see that changing.

Roman Saiss: 6 points

He might even be the biggest bonus points magnet in the game, as once again he managed to get a single bonus point to wipe out his yellow card. He’s amazing value and won’t be leaving my team.

Brandon Williams: 0 points

Didn’t play, need to get rid.

Diego Rico: 0 points

Didn’t play, need to get rid.

Midfielders

Mohamed Salah: 11 points

The pharaoh returns with a bang, laying on a goal and assist in the absolute drubbing of Crystal Palace, who were once their bogey team. It seems absolutely insane that people are trying to go without him or Mane, especially since the race for the golden boot is still on.

Kevin de Bruyne: 8 points

Unfortunately, City lost and the title went to Liverpool. This was nothing to do with Kevin however, who was brilliant on the night, and banged in a free kick that was inch perfect, top bins, unsaveable. He’s now entered double figures for both goals and assists. Let’s get that record Kev.

Ismaila Sarr: 2 points

A disappointing first venture for Sarr in my team, who I have high hopes for. I’ve heard he performs significantly better at home than away, and I would hope so because he put up a 0 shot, 0 key pass masterclass on the weekend.

Anthony Martial: 21 points

Tony Bones. Brilliant. Absolutely sensational. He wrapped up the first league hat-trick for United since Robin van Persie in 2013, and he loks hungry for more. Great positioning and ice cold finishing made easy work of the neutered Sheffield United defense, lets hope he can do some more damage in the upcoming weeks.

Isaac Hayden: 2 points

I’ll be honest, I don’t really know what he did, probably nothing once again. He’s out of my team in the next few weeks anyway, but he’s been good fodder for 4.3.

Forwards

Dominic Calvert-Lewin: 2 points

Quite a disappointing result for Everton, against the B team of Norwich. A bright spark however is that DCL put up 8 attempts on goal, so lets hope that translates into actual points in the coming weeks.

Raul Jimenez (C): 9 points

Like a postman, he always delivers. Only one shot in the entire game though, so I think I got pretty lucky here. Still, a must own and one of my all time favorite assets.

Pierre-Emeric Aubameyang: 2 points

Another blank. ANOTHER ONE. 4 in a row now. He has caused me nothing but misery. That being said, he really did have chances to score in this game. I’ll be keeping him one last week, then its goodbye forever.
