Michu, Rooney Unstoppable, Chelsea Finding Some Form – Fantasy Premeier League Gameweek 16 Review

 

Manchester Derby lives up to the expectation

The average points increases for a gameweek with double games for one or more sides and gameweek 16 was no different. The average points in gameweek 16 of the Fantasy Premier League went up-to 52 with ample scope for managers to score points. This gameweek had four match days and all of those days were action-packed making a lot of players register their name on the scoresheet. Among the good things this week is the fact that Chelsea has registered their first win under their new manager, Rafa Benitez, with Torres back in form scoring two goals. Michu started this week exactly from the point where he left last week and has again picked up 12 points and the Manchester derby has produced five goals with both Rooney and Van Persie finding the net. Some of the most important points of this week are as follows.

Magnificent Michu absolutely unstoppable

Magnificent Michu Unstoppable

Swansea City has hit gem with Michu, whom they brought in from Spain and who has went on to score 12 goals since. Even this week he has scored 2 goals against Norwich taking his total points tally to 107. This has again triggered a fanatic transfer in for him, 57,255 till now, soaring his price to £8.0m. His ownership now stands at 46.2% and it is on an ever ascending curve rising by the hour. So if you were sceptical about Michu until now, leave aside all your doubts and root for the hottest property of the season.

Chelsea finally finding a win

It is good news for Chelsea fans as their team have finally registered a win in the league under their new manager. The icing on the cake is the fact that 2 of their 3 goals were scored by none other than Torres. It was the second time that Torres has scored a brace in as many matches, after netting 2 in their Champion’s League match earlier in the week. So for those of you who have been avoiding Torres and were going in for Tevez and Aguero, it is time to reconsider your stand and start thing about El Nino as he is one of the few regular strikers available in the Premier League.

Arsenal wins against Brom, Stoke against Villa ends in draw

The Gunners win their match against West Brom with both their goals scored by Arteta. Santi Cazorla also provided an assist to get 6 points from this game. Arteta have been adjudged the player of the week with 16 points although he was not the only one to reach that many points. Arteta, who has been a regular in the side, can thus be thought of as a good Arsenal coverage apart from Cazorla. Stoke City were once again brilliant in defence and drew their match against Aston Villa in a goalless manner. The Stoke defenders like Shawcross, Cameron and their keeper Begovic have thus been absolutely vital for their owners providing a bulk of points.

The Manchester derby produces thrilling football

 

The much anticipated match between Manchester City and Manchester United provides an adrenaline pumped match that saw United beat City 3-2, courtesy an injury time Van Persie goal, with some of the most important players netting the ball. Rooney, who has not found many takers thus far, scored both the opening goals and raise a lot of doubts in the minds of the Fantasy Premier League managers about his exclusion. Yaya toure of City also scored one for his side and Tevez provided two assists in City’s pursuit to find an equalizer. It was left to Van Persie to provide United with the winner at the finishing stages of the match. Thus there was something for everybody in this match and ultimately the winner from this match were the Fantasy Premier League managers.
