FPL Gameweek 7 Review

Top of the league Manchester City shows the world why they deserve to be there after a convincing win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Crystal Palace dismantled yet again by Mourinho’s high-flying Red Devils. Liverpool’s disappointing run of form continues, making it one win in the last seven games! Harry Kane asserts his dominance at The John Smith’s stadium with a brace of goals against Huddersfield.

AFC Bournemouth 0 – 0 Leicester City:

Another disappointing afternoon for Eddie Howe’s side meant The Foxes left Dean Court with a single point. Bournemouth dominated possession for large spells of the game, having over double the number of shots (19) taken by Leicester. The 13% of managers that had Jamie Vardy in their squad are sure to be disappointed with his below average 2 points for the gameweek.

  • Bonus:

Ake, Schmeichel, Fuchs (3), Daniels (1)

Huddersfield 0 – 4 Tottenham:

Harry Kane replicated last week’s 13 point return with yet another brace to his name! After just 23 minutes, Spurs were 3-0 up against the newly promoted side. It remained this way until unlikely scorer Sissoko bagged a 91st-minute goal to give Tottenham Hotspur the 4 nil win they deserve.

  • Bonus:

Kane (3), Trippier (2), Davies (1)

West Bromwich Albion 2 – 2 Watford:

Up until the very end of injury time, it looked as if West Brom were going to cling onto a narrow 2-1 victory. However, Watford’s 66% possession and 15 shots proved too much for Foster and his defence to handle, as The Baggies conceded to a Richarlison header in the dying seconds of the match.

  • Bonus:

Holebas (3), Doucoure (3), Krychowiak (1)


West Ham United 1 – 0 Swansea:

What looked like was going to be a boring 0-0 draw ended up as a dramatic victory for Slaven Bilic and his squad. Diafra Sakho gave The Hammers 3 points to celebrate after scoring a 90th minute winner. It was a sort of must-win game for West Ham, and they did just that. A win is a win.

  • Bonus:

Zabaleta (3), Fonte (2), Sakho (1)


Stoke City 2 -1 Southampton:

Peter Crouch may be 36 years of age, but that doesn’t stop him from scoring match winning goals. Stoke called upon the Englishman’s years of experience to drag them through the tough fixture, scoring in the 85th minute to win them the game.

  • Bonus:

Diouf (3), Forster (2), Yoshida and Crouch (1)

Manchester United 4 – 0 Crystal Palace:

A game that United fans would have expected to win with ease turns out just the way they would have wanted. Romelu Lukaku features on the scoresheet once again, whilst Fellaini bagged two for himself and Mata grabbed the remaining goal.

  • Bonus:

Fellaini (3), Mata (2), Rashford (1)


Chelsea 0 – 1 Manchester City:

A stunning performance from the blue side of Manchester further convinced fans around the country to stick their money on Pep Guardiola’s side this year, after de Bruyne scored the only goal of the evening. Man City made Chelsea look ordinary in their own backyard.

  • Bonus:

de Bruyne (3), Ederson, Stones (2)

Arsenal 2 – 0 Brighton & Hove Albion:

The Gunners were victorious over Brighton on Sunday thanks to goals from Monreal and Iwobi. We must not forget to mention Sanchez’s sensational back heel assist to set up Iwobi’s smartly finished goal.

  • Bonus:

Monreal (3), Bellerin (2), Iwobi (1)


Everton 0 – 1 Burnley:

Everton has lost yet another game, as their attackers fail to find the net once again, a recurring theme throughout the season so far. Koeman is facing extreme scrutiny after such poor performances on the back of a heavy spending summer transfer window.

  • Bonus:

Ward (3), Pope (2), Mee, Hendrick (1)

Newcastle 1 -1 Liverpool:

Newcastle will be content with their point after conceding just the one goal against a formidable Liverpool attack. However, tensions are rising within the Liverpool fan base, as Jurgen Klopp has managed just one win in his last seven.

  • Bonus:

Coutinho (3), Joselu (2), Matip and Shelvey (1)
