Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 2: Who Was Hot

The EPL has just started but the richness in competition makes every game week an interesting one. Last game week has involved some decisive fixtures in title race and also some scintillating performances. We shall discuss the game week’s top performers in brief.

Strikers

Stevan Jovetic: Jovetic announced himself in a grand way making the most of the Liverpool’s defensive errors. His fluid movement is an asset.

Diego Costa: Chelsea knocked out Leicester City thanks to goals from Hazard and Diego Costa. Costa has been a fantastic goal poacher thus far and is most likely going to repeat his Atletico Madrid’s form this season as well.

Emmanuel Adebayor: Great performance from the former Gunner. Scored a goal and an assist as well. Made some brilliant runs penetrating the QPR’s defense.

Olivier Giroud: The inclusion of Giroud has changed Arsenal’s approach to the game. An aerial threat in the box and linked up with midfield very well.

Sergio Aguero: Made an instant impact after brought on as a sub. Made the most of his opportunities.

Midfielders

Raheem Sterling: His diagonal runs and his increased vision is proving to be fruitful. Not to explain about his sprint, he is one player to watch out this season.

Eden Hazard: His dribbles are top-notch and troubled Leicester’s defense throughout the game. Scored a goal as well.

Steven Naismith: 2 goals in 2 games, this man has added a new attacking dimension to Everton’s game. Might prove decisive in fantasy premier league.

Erik Lamela: Revitalized and resurgent. Provided two assists and helped demolish QPR at White Hart Lane.

Juan Mata: Only stand out performer for Manchester United. Opened his season’s tally by scoring a goal which earned LVG his first premier league point.

Aaron Ramsey: One great option in midfield can be Aaron Ramsey as he has become a goal poacher and averaging a goal per game. A certain game changer. A great value to your fantasy premier league team.

Stewart Downing: That thunderbolt strike helping his team to overcome Crystal Palace.

Santi Cazorla: Coming off the bench proved how important he is to the team by assisting a goal which helped the team gain a point.

Nacer Chadli: Part of Tottenham’s attack that demolished QPR. Scored 2 goals helping Spurs gain a comfortable 3 points.

Cesc Fabregas: Appears to be well settled. An assist increasing his tally to 3 in 2 games.

Jack Rodwell: Scored from a corner kick, impressive performance from the English man.

Defenders

Eric Dier: Two good performances from England International scoring one goal in each of the game.

Seamus Coleman: Last season’s top performing defender Coleman appeared to be in good touch and is a great option defensively and offensively.

Branislav Ivanovic: Ivanovic has been consistent and another error-free performance from the Serbian International.

Ryan Shawcross: Scoring a late goal helped his team attain a point in a 1-1 draw against Hull City.

Vincent Kompany: The City skipper, Vincent Kompany kept Sturridge silent the entire game. His defensive clearances and tackles are risky but top-notch.

Clean Sheets

Tim Krul: The game didn’t involve any fierce attacks but did well to help his team achieve a clean sheet.

Thibuat Courtois: Stood firm and kept his feet well on the ground ensuring a clean sheet.

Brad Guzan: Some crucial saves and an important second clean sheet this season.

Lukasz Fabianski: Not much work for him during the game but did well enough.

Ben Foster: A goal less draw. Decent Performance.

Fraser Forster: Strong presence between the posts, decent performance as well.

Players to Watch Out

Mario Balotelli: A risky transfer by Liverpool FC. If he could repeat his Milan’s performance that would be an asset added to Liverpool’s attack.

Lazar Markovic: Came off as a sub but had an impact on the game. Surely a player to watch out.

Yaya Toure: The inclusion of Yaya Toure in fantasy premier league team might also prove to be fruitful considering his performance.

Alexis Sanchez: Disappointing performances thus far but a quality world class player one can always rely on.

Wayne Rooney: Gave his all but not fruitful. Can be a good addition to the fantasy premier league team.

John Terry: Premier league’s most scoring defender. Great link-up with Cahill at the back. Felipe Luis: Benched both the games but a potential player who can perform well.

Simon Mignolet: Relatively bad performances compared to last season. Can do well as the season prolongs.

Mesut Ozil: Poor Performances from the German International. Didn’t position himself well in the game. His popularity adds him to the list.
