Defoe notches up two goals against Reading

Fantasy Football Clean Sheets at a Premium

The Premier League is renouned for being the most “exciting” league in the world which can make fantasy football difficult, especially when looking for a clean sheet!

Last weekend on Everton, West Brom, Newcastle and Chelsea kept Clean Sheets with Ashley Cole the outstanding player collecting a double with a goal and clean sheet!

Weekend Round Up

The Blues had a difficult game hosting Stoke who had taken points off Manchester City and Arsenal already this season but England Left Back Cole ghosted into the box to be picked out by Juan Mata with a sublime assist for Cole to Finish excellently. It took 85 mins for this goal to come and Chelsea held on despite a few scares to get te clean sheet & victory 1-0.

International retirement appears to have kick started Damien Duff this season as the Fulham midfielder scored his third goal of the season as Fulham beat Wigan 2-1 at the DW. Hugo Rodallega also made it onto the scoresheet against his former team with Dimitar Berbatov getting an assist the weekend too.

Fulham were unlucky not to repeat their performance in this fixture last season which saw them win 2-0 an Kone scored a conselation goal for the Lactic’s late on.

Chelsea loanee Romelu Lukaku made his full debut for West Brom v Reading and scored from a Shane Long (assist) knockdown to help the baggies get the victory & clean sheet against Long’s former club Reading.

On loan (from Chelsea) Romelu Lukaku scored on his full debut for West Brom to give the Baggies a 1-0 win over Reading.

Another West Ham Goal by Kevin Nolan snatched a draw late on for the Hammers against Sunderland who had opened the scoring through Steven Fletcher who has now scored four goals in three games for the Black Cats.

Southampton secured their first points of the season coming back from 0-1 down to score four goals in the last 30 minutes of the game. Darren Bent had open the scoring but goals from Clyne, Clark O.G. and a Brace from Lambert saw the Saints win emphatically 4-1!

Manchester City went into the lead against Arsenal against the run of play at the East Lands only for Arsenal to show real team spirit and clinch a draw in the last 10 minute of the game. The man Mancini has been dropping in favour of playing three in defence, Lescott scored from a David Silva corner to put City into the lead.

Arsenals equalising goal also came from a corner with Santi Carzorla putting the ball into the area for Lescott to clear poorly & Koscielny to score.

Despite dominating this game for long periods, Liverpool were unable to beat Manchester United at the weekend. This game will be remembered for two questionable decisions that saw Shelvey get sent off in the first half and Glen Johnson give away a penalty in the second half. Opinions on both incidents were split depending on team allegiances.

Gareth Bale was asked to play left back as Tottenham hosted QPR on Sunday afternoon as Dempsey played on the left Wing. Defoe was again on the score sheet as he benefited from a Gareth Bale rebound and Zamora scored for QPR with another goal in a London derby.

The fantasy football points went to Van Persie who scored a penalty late on to inspire Manchester United to a 2-1 victory. Gerrard scored a great goal for Liverpool to put them into the lead only for Rafael to score a few minutes later to make the game 1-1.

Fletcher scores again
