Gameweek 31: Fantasy Review
Chelsea got the 15-game week off to a great start with a net full of goals by battering Arsenal.
Outstanding Performances Luis Suarez, Liverpool A hat trick and an assist against Cardiff, now five goals and three assists in five games. Suarez leads all fantasy players in points with 219.
Yaya Toure, Manchester City A brace against Fulham with two penalty goals and a spectacular long-range blast, then a late strike in the Manchester United domination. He has five goals and one assist in the last four games and is the leading fantasy midfielder with 211 points.
Martin Skrtel, Liverpool Skrtel had a brace against Cardiff giving him six goals on just 12 shots for the season.
Wayne Rooney, Manchester United Scored an audacious goal from behind the midfield line and then poached a “thank you very much” score for his brace against West Ham.
Hot Daniel Sturridge, Liverpool Eleven goals and five assists over the last eleven games.
Jay Rodriguez, Southampton Scored his third goal in his last three games.
Romelu Lukaku, Everton A goal and assist against Swansea gives him three goals and one assist in four games.
Christian Benteke, Aston Villa Opened the scoring with his third goal in two games and then watched his defence fold like a cheap tent.
Peter Odemwingie, Stoke Scored his third goal in his last two games.
Wilfried Bony, Swansea Another goal gives him three and an assist in his last five matches.
Edin Dzeko, Manchester City A brace against MUFC gives him three goals in the last two matches he has played.
Ross Barkley, Everton After spotty playing time, Barkley has had two goals in his last two games.
Steven Gerrard, Liverpool A brilliant free-kick goal against Sunderland gives him five goals and three assists in his last seven games.
Drought-enders Christian Eriksen, Tottenham Scored his first goal in eleven matches and then added a second and an assist.
Oscar, Chelsea Scored his first goal in ten matches and added a second.
Adam Lallana, Southampton Broke his eight-match scoreless streak with a goal against Spurs.
Gylfi Sigurdsson, Tottenham Scored his first goal since September to complete a Spurs comeback home result.
Lukas Podolski, Arsenal Scored his first goal since Boxing Day.
Leon Osman, Everton Got his first goal since Dec. 14.
Mark Noble, West Ham A penalty goal against Hull was his first score in eleven matches.
Helping feet Nemanja Matic, Chelsea Two assists in the Arsenal rout.
Gerard Deulofeu, Everton Two assists against Swansea. He must wonder what is up with his manager. Three games ago he played 62 minutes and got a goal. The next game he played one minute. Tuesday he was on for 90 minutes and had the two assists.
Samir Nasri, Manchester City Two assists in his last two games.
Neil Taylor, Swansea The seldom-used defender got his first assist of the season.
Philippe Coutinho, Liverpool Two assists against Cardiff but no fantasy rewards for a terrific game against Sunderland.
Clean living Joe Hart, Manchester City Five clean sheets in a row.
First goals of the season Mohamed Salah, Chelsea Martin Demichellis, Manchester City
Uh-oh Stewart Downing, West Ham Downing is a starter who usually plays 90 minutes, yet has no goals and only two assists for the entire season.
Gabriel Agbonlahor, Aston Villa Zero goals or assists in his last 11 games.
Juan Mata, Manchester United The Chelsea transfer has gone six games without a goal or an assist.
Adam Johnson, Sunderland Once a must-have after scoring six goals in five games, he got an assist against Liverpool but has not scored a goal in five games and did not start against Reds.
Blown Identity Andre Marriner, FIFA referee Sent Kieran Gibbs off with a red card when the guilty party was clearly Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. The Football Association cleared both players and Mariner escaped disciplinary action.
1,000th game to forget Arsene Wenger, Arsenal Chelsea 6, Arsenal 0
1,001 wasn't so great, either Arsene Wenger, Arsenal Watched Mathieu Flamini tap in an own goal in the dying moments of a seemingly sure victory that ended up in a 2-2 draw.
Oh, and by the way, game No. 1,002 for Wenger? At Manchester City.
