The players of the fantasy football game day
When it comes to the big point-scorers on this game day, one of the key points to note is that only Harry Kane and Marouane Fellaini managed to score more than once this game day. The match between Spurs and Huddersfield only featured on FanTeam, but it did feature one of the two big point-scorers – even so Kane only made 4th place.
Harry Kane (TOT)/Marouane Fellaini (MNU)
Goals 5 and 6 for this Premier League season meant that Harry Kane brought in 11 points on Fanteam. Fellaini brought in 14 points on FanTeam and 16 on FantasyBet
Kieran Trippier /Ben Davies (TOT)
As is often the case with Spurs, their defenders put in an impressive performance. In addition to the already well-established clean sheet, Trippier was able to prepare two goals for (13 points) . Ben Davies was even more successful, scoring one himself and preparing another for (17 points) . Ben Davies always stands out as being good for a place in our starting line ups. The defender is already on two goals and three assists this season.
Nacho Monreal (ARS)
Arsenal’s defence also put on a good show in the 2:0 win. Monreal made a decisive contribution by setting the 1: 0 lead. For this he earned 15 points on FantasyBet and 14 on Fanteam 14
The last player on our list is Richarlison of Watford. The budget striker contributed a goal and an assist to the 2:2 draw with West Brom. This earned him 10 points on both Fanteam and FantasyBet. By this time last season, Richarlison was on three goals and two assists. Next week Watford will head London to take on the Gunners, but after that the Brazilian could be an excellent budget option for Fantasy Football Managers.
