The latest gameweek of the Premier League has come to end, with Swansea City’s game plan executed perfectly to crash Liverpool back down to earth, following the euphoria of ending the long unbeaten run of Manchester City.
Fantasy managers within SBC’s League of Legends were left ruing decisions to stock up on players of the Anfield based outfit, however, Pep Guardiola’s side did pick up where they left off at home to offer some respite. A Sergio Aguero hat-trick making him joint highest scorer for the round with 17, level with Chelsea’s goal scoring full-back Victor Moses.
Top scoring for the round, and climbing up the table a number of places to 40th in the process, is Areg Oganesian, Head of Trading at PariMatch. Top scoring was captain Aguero, who saw his 17 points double to 34, suitably backed up by Arsenal defender Nacho Monreal, whose goal and two assists saw him register 16 points, and Manchester United defender Phil Jones, who kept a clean sheet in an impressive away win at Burnley.
Closing the gap at the top is Charlie Cole, outscoring the current leader, OPAP trader Constantinos Digonis, to narrow the gap to just 11 points. A large chunk of Cole’s 71 point haul can be attributed to the front line of Aguero (17 points) and Kane (captain, 16), with Tottenham defender Ben Davies securing an assist to back up with eight points.
Leapfrogging his way into tenth spot was Joe Ryan, with 73 points enough to outscore rivals and take his place amongst the top ten. It was a familiar front-line of Aguero (17) and Kane (captain, 16), with Jones (9) backed up in defence with the Chelsea duo of Marcos Alonso (6) and Cesar Azpilicueta (6) off the back of an impressive 4-0 away win at Brighton.
The Premier League takes a break this weekend, with FA Cup action set to return, before league action resumes in a weeks time. Arsenal face what could now be a tricky away trip to Swansea, while Liverpool look to bounce back at Huddersfield. Champions elect Manchester City host West Brom, and in the tie of the round Manchester United travel to Wembley to take on Tottenham.
