Forwards have flattered to deceive so far and the defenders are by and large justifying their new premium price tags. Will this continue into GW3 or will we see a reversal of fortunes?
Gameweek 2 review
This section is intended to house some personal thoughts alongside community reviews going forward, the content contained within dependant on available time and interest from the community here and on Twitter. We will try to keep it somewhat short and sweet with the key takeaways taking the central stage.
Allsvenskan Fantasy contributor @poohdini59 on Twitter has provided these superb summaries of data points from GW2:
Maroky Ndione was the clear leader in terms of npxG (non-penalty expected goals) with 1.86, while Blair Turgott failed to register amongst the top five in this category despite scoring a hattrick (from 3 shots). Elfsborg in general had a good game against Varberg, registering 4 big chances and an xG of 2.77, which could bode well for Djurgården in GW3. Djurgården also tops the carts for shots inside the box (14).
Malmö has started this season well and a surprise inclusion for some might be Franz Brorsson as number 5 on the npxG chart.
