The Big Numbers – Gameweek 2

Filed under: Members - Posted by: In Tommy We Trust

As another Gameweek edges towards its conclusion, we handpick the standout statistics over Saturday and Sunday’s nine Premier League fixtures. Andre Villas-Boas’ shift to 4-3-3 brings a Tottenham new boy onto our radar, a certain Saints frontman catches our attention, City’s midfield schemer offers goal promise, while a trio of Everton’s assets also make the cut:

  1. I am really surprised at the reaction of people over Mata not starting. He hardly had any pre-season, looked way off the pace against Villa, how could he start such a big game? Anyone remember how he started last season? That was after first International break he started to score.

  2. Smart move by Jose. Pack midfield. A draw is a good result.

    1. We will see shortly.

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
    2. looks like he's using this an attacking ploy, mobility causes disorganisation.

      If he was after 0-0 i think the mighty Jon Obi would get a start.

  3. Just under 2 hours to enter Last Man Standing.

    63 or more in GW1 qualifies. Code is 58-324

    940 qualified so far. Lowest 40 odd gameweek scores after hits get knocked out.

    Aiming for 1000 entries.

  4. Michael Owen says Hazard is up front on ESPN Star Sports India.

    • 2 years, 9 days ago
    1. Hazard not up front then 😉

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
      1. Definitely rule that out then.

        • 2 years, 9 days ago
      2. Their analysis makes me believe so. 😉

        • 2 years, 9 days ago
    2. Owen played for Stoke

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
    3. He was commentating for NBC on the weekend, Owen gets around.

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
    4. Mourinho hasn't said who it is yet as far as i can see...I hope it's Hazard...

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
  5. I left Hazard leaving my emotions aside & following the rule "FPL is business"

    Really scared that he'll do some business too now :-(

    • 2 years, 9 days ago
  6. Dear Mr. Hazard:

    Please score.

    sincerely,

    Mankind

    • 2 years, 9 days ago
      • 2 years, 9 days ago
      1. So all your team played already. I see

        • 2 years, 9 days ago
  7. Ben Affleck lone forward?? I hope not...

    • 2 years, 9 days ago
  8. New Article Posted
  9. I will be bold and say 0-2 to Chelsea. Goals From Ivanovic and Schurrle.

    • 2 years, 9 days ago
  10. It would be so much more simple if they called this the Wayne Cup - winner takes all (and 200,000 a week wages)

    • 2 years, 9 days ago
  11. .

    Chelsea to expose Cleverly as the poor midfielder he is tonight.

    • 2 years, 9 days ago
  12. Score prediction after seeing line ups:

    2-1 United!

    • 2 years, 9 days ago
  13. If Romelu doesn't come on I've fielded 10 players this GW. Shocking.

    • 2 years, 9 days ago
  14. 0-0 at 10/1. Worth a punt.

    • 2 years, 9 days ago
    1. marvelous work

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
  15. New Post
  16. Rio... come on man...

    • 2 years, 9 days ago
  17. How is Mata not on the pitch. Wrong

    • 2 years, 9 days ago
  18. for Wk 3 - Best defender to Sub for Ivanovic ... under 5.0 (i already have Whittaker)

    Lovren (5.0), Collins (4.5), Shaw (4.7), Chambers (4.0), Fonte (4.5) ??

    Pick one, thanks!!

    • 2 years, 9 days ago
    1. Shaw

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
  19. I can see why Lukaku is benched, Chelsea have such a vivacious cutting edge without him. Oh wait... Mourinho is losing it.

    • 2 years, 9 days ago
    1. *vicious 😀

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
    2. Hands down he' s the best striker they have

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
  20. I have no clue who to transfer lukaku out for... i can sell for 7.8 and I have .5 in the bank. Thoughts?

    • 2 years, 9 days ago
    1. my other 2 are Soldado and Dzeko btw

      • 2 years, 9 days ago
    2. Rickie Lambert would be my pick!

      • 2 years, 8 days ago
  21. Should i get RVP in guys?

    • 2 years, 9 days ago
    1. Gameweek 6 is when I plan on getting him! :)

      • 2 years, 8 days ago
  22. Is Luke Shaw injured? Anyone know status?

    • 2 years, 9 days ago
  23. Hey people. Anyone know whats doing on with Briggs (FULHAM)? He started GW1, but not GW2. Is he just not a starter or something more?
