FPL Review GW8: An in-depth analysis of the many stars and flops of yet another unpredictable PL weekend

Fantasy Premier League (FPL) Review – Matchday Eight

Another matchweek of Premier League action is over with some really eye-catching results to look into.

While leaders Liverpool continued their juggernaut with a win over Leicester City, champions Manchester City stumble to a 2-0 loss at home to Wolves.

Chelsea and Arsenal got their wins but Manchester United and Tottenham lose to Newcastle United and Brighton respectively to increase doubts.

One more club on the hit zone is Everton, who lost their fourth consecutive league game at Burnley to slip into the relegation zone. Marco Silva might not even be on the other side of this international break.

However, we are here to review the matchweek in terms of FPL and take a look at stars and flops of this weekend:

Stars of FPL – Matchday Eight

Wesley Moraes scored a brace in Aston Villa’s thumping 5-1 win away at Norwich City.

Raul Jimenez provided the two assists for the goals scored by Wolves at the Etihad. Adama Traore was the surprise scorer of both the goals to add himself to one of the FPL stars of this past week.

Sadio Mane and James Milner scored and assist a goal between each to lead Liverpool to a vital win over Leicester City.

David Luiz scored and kept a clean sheet against Bournemouth to be a star man for Arsenal.

Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount have been in many FPL teams and the duo scored against Southampton to make a lot of people happy.

On the other hand, Neal Maupay scored for Brighton and the striker in the teams of many FPL managers.

Sebastian Haller, Patrick van Aanholt and James Maddison scored to help their respective FPL bosses get the points.

Flops of FPL – Matchday Eight

Sergio Aguero was expected to score at home to Wolves, but the Argentinian struggled for service throughout the game.

Jamie Vardy, Mohamed Salah, Harry Kane, Callum Wilson and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang drew blank in front of goal.

Teemu Pukki has gone incredibly quiet after a explosive start to his season. People may just think that his purple patch is over and the reality is striking in as Norwich struggle to play football.

A real shame – Chelsea would be foolish to allow this promising £58m star to depart on loan

Everton signing this £40m-rated Man United target would be a phenomenal statement of intent
