Sadio’s sending off leaves fantasy football managers in shock

In what was a tough week for fantasy football managers, goals from Marcus Rashford and Romelu Lukaku helped James Birch extend his run at the top of SBC’s league of Legends.

William Hill’s Al Romulus had another impressive round, racking up 60 points and putting himself within 15 points of the top spot. Al’s midfield made the difference this week, as Kevin De Bruyne, Leroy Sane and Christian Eriksen hit a combined 30 points.

Also storming into the top ten was Sun Bet’s Tim Reynolds, who will have been ruing leaving N’Golo Kante on the bench, as the Chelsea midfielder netted against his old club, Leicester City.

To many people’s surprise, after four rounds of fantasy football Spurs defender Ben Davies is the game’s MVP, the defender helped Paddy Power’s Lee Price earn a spot in the top ten this week, and has racked up a total of 32 points so far this season.

Harry Kane also ended his goal drought this weekend, for him and Davies next up is an attractive game against Swansea at Wembley. Could Spurs players be the biggest scorers this weekend or will they be cursed by a midweek tie against Borussia Dortmund?

Many managers will be looking ahead to next weekend’s Super Sunday, as champions Chelsea take on Arsenal and Wayne Rooney returns to Old Trafford with Everton.
