Sunday and Monday’s Fantasy Review

Norwich 1-1 Stoke-  A goal from defender De Laet makes him the game’s most impressive fantasy contributor, while Jon Walter’s penalty miss and Leon Barnett’s sending off provided us with a couple duds.

Credit too, to Norwich penalty hero John Ruddy, and the scorer of Stoke’s last minute equalizer – Kenwyne Jones.

MOTM: Ritchie De LaetA goal from defense – always useful.
FOTM: Leon Barnett- Sending off may have been harsh, but the fantasy gods don’t give a toss.

Wolves 2-0 Fulham- Wolves have looked really dangerous so far this season, the speed of their ball movement in the final third particularly impressive. Using a basic 4-4-2, they are a threat in all areas – able to build up play well with the improved Karl Henry and new signing Jamie O’Hara pulling the strings, as well as fire crosses in from the wing; mainly via the boot of Matt Jarvis.

Kevin Doyle made up for his penalty miss last week with a goal, though his idiotic celebration meant point subtraction for a booking.

MOTM: Matt Jarvis- Dangerous all afternoon, and the scorer of the second goal.
FOTM: Patjim Kasami- Looked out of his depth, and hooked at half time.

Bolton 2-3 Manchester City- Where to start, where to start? David Silva continued his blistering form with another goal, while Edin Dzeko added to his tally too. A rare strike from Gareth Barry won’t help many, he has never been a popular fantasy player.

Kevin Davies is one of the fantasy game’s most sought after forwards, and he opened his goal scoring account with a flicked header in the second half. Ivan Klasnic as well is fast becoming an interesting striking option, a fine finish just before the break moved his total to two.

Both defenses were porous, and Jussi Jaaskelainen made a terrible mistake in letting Silva’s shot dribble through.

Finally, congratulations to Micah Richards, Paul Robinson and James Milner (2) for assists.

MOTM: David Silva- A goal and likely performance points. He oozed class all evening long.
FOTM: Jussi Jaaskelainen- Three conceded, and a howler to boot.

Manchester United 3-0 Tottenham- Impressive performances by United youngsters led Fergie’s team to a comfortable 3-0 win. Goals from Anderson and Danny Welbeck will help those daring enough to take a risk, while Rooney’s late header should benefit most of us.

In defense, Phil Jones was particularly superb – making block after block to keep Tottenham out.

MOTM: Danny Welbeck- Cheap, promising and the scorer of United’s opener.
FOTM: Rafael Van der Vaart- Took more shots than anyone else… missed them all.
