Totally Buzzed’s League: FPL GW5 (News Bulletin)
FPL GW5 Summary and King of Gameweek 5
Cristiano Ronaldo continues to dominate the Premier League’s headlines as he delivered the goods once again. The Portuguese scoresheet added another goal to his tally for the season to help Manchester United defeat West Ham 2-1. In the same game, Mark Noble caused a storm in a teacup as he was brought off the bench to take a penalty for West Ham, but he ended up fluffing his lines. However, unlike Ronaldo, not many Fantasy Premier League players would have minded as he’s not a highly selected player.
Elsewhere, Watford achieved a comfortable 3-1 victory over Norwich City, Aston Villa beat Everton 3-0, Arsenal defeated Burnley 1-0, Brentford inflicted a 2-0 defeat on Wolves, Brighton beat Leicester City 2-1, Chelsea cruised past Tottenham with a 3-0 win and Liverpool achieved a comfortable 3-0 win over Crystal Palace.
However, Manchester City had to settle for a 0-0 draw with Southampton and Newcastle United battled out a 1-1 draw with Leeds United. Manchester City’s shortcomings likely frustrated a lot of Fantasy Premier League players this week.
This week’s best possible team, as revealed by the official FPL’s Twitter account:
Totally Buzzed’s FPL League Summary
Team Sanchos Nachos held on to the top spot in the Totally Buzzed FPL league after racking up 60 points this week. Yet there was a bit of a shuffling of the pack when it came to the rest of the top-six. Team Up The Franchise moved up to third, with Team Nighthawks FC moving up to fourth. However, that resulted in Team Relegateland-Niles and Team Dano Maniacs dropping down to fifth and sixth place respectfully.
As for the bottom of the table, late comer Team Luc sits bottom with it only their second week playing. The newbie racked up only 29 points with the injuries to Eduoard Mendy and Jordan Pickford seeing them play this game week with no goalkeeper.
Team Pjanic at the Xisco continued their struggles at the bottom of their table as a score of 42 points wasn’t enough to see them climb the table.
Team Seabiscuit completes the bottom three as while they continue to rack up respectable scores, missing gameweek 1 is still proving costly.
Yet with it only being Gameweek 5, it’s still all to play for, so be sure to come back to see who the movers and shakers are in Gameweek 6.
