GAMEWEEK 28

There were seven Premier League matches on Saturday, with a further three more taking place on Sunday. It will see Watford host Arsenal, before Man City welcome Man United to the Etihad. So let’s round-up what’s happened so far.

The Foxes did this without James Maddison, as a result of his lower back injury. Leeds put in a promising performance in Jesse Marsch’s fist match in charge but left with no points.

Aston Villa 4-0 Southampton

Left-back Lucas Digne was not in the matchday squad because of Covid, whilst Kyle Walker-Peters was named on the bench. The Southampton full-back entered proceedings in the second half. There was also a yellow card for Ollie Watkins.

Burnley 0-4 Chelsea

Not only were Romelu Lukaku and Hakim Ziyech unused substitues but Marcos Alonso missed out altogether. Goalless at half-time, Chelsea then turned this into a comfortable victory.

Both Allan Saint-Maximin and Neal Maupay made cameo appearances. It therefore means the Magpies continue their two-month unbeaten run.

Like last weekend, Raul Jimenez was only named as a substitute and so was Rayan Ait-Nouri. There was an early injury for Ki-Jana Hoever, as well as a yellow card for Conor Gallagher.

There was an injury-related substitution of Jarrod Bowen. Although Diogo Jota made a brief appearance, his yellow card took him to zero points. Also booked were Sadio Mane and Craig Dawson.

In conclusion, the seven matches so far have brought 19 goals and five clean sheets to FPL managers. As a result, the current highest-scoring players of the Gameweek are Reece James (18), Ivan Toney (17), Danny Ings (15) and Kai Havertz (14).
