With the football schedule growing ever more hectic and teams looking to settle into a groove, the Premier League table after Gameweek 5 might be a good indicator of where the rest of the season is heading. Here are the top-performing players this week. Which ones of these NFTs and free fantasy football cards did you have in your FootballCoin squad?
Fabinski shines in spite of the Hammers’ loss
David Moyes very nearly, finally, got his revenge on Manchester United. West Ham played well against the Red Devils. However, goals from Cristiano Ronaldo, former West Ham player Jessi Lingard, and a last-minute penalty save from David De Gea, kept United afloat and racking up another victory.
Lucasz Fabianski, the Hammer’s long-serving keeper, is the best player in his position this week. The Polish player earned his fantasy football fans 39.6 points in FootballCoin following a performance in which he showed safe pair of hands throughout the match.
Ismaila Sarr makes good on promises
Ismaila Sarr has long been one of the most promising players in English football. The player who has been on Liverpool’s radar in the past scored twice for Watford against Norwich. It’s a vital victory that could count tremendously in the team’s bid to avoid the drop.
Meanwhile, Mohamed Salah and Cristiano Ronaldo earn the runner-up positions when it comes to forwards. Both players scored one goal each, making their performances this season amazingly consistent and providing Liverpool and United fans with hope that their teams may battle for the EPL crown this season.
Marcos Alonso, the week’s top performer
Elsewhere, the best fantasy football scores of the week belonged to two players not often featuring as regulars for their teams. Marcos Alonso managed 76.7 points for Chelsea. The Spaniard looked competent in adhering to manager Thomas Tuchel’s tactical experimentation. The Blues won against Tottenham by a 3-0 scoreline.
James Milner, also returning to the fold for Liverpool was the best midfielder of the week. The Englishman earned 47.6 points, ahead of Martin Odegaard and Douglas Luiz. The great performance has given solidity to the claims that Liverpool’s squad depth could prove a decisive factor in their bid to win another EPL trophy under the management of Jurgen Klopp.
