The 5 Best Things About Premier League Week 3: Including Moreno And Diouf’s Solo Goals!

Keep On Running I

Never mind Mario Balotelli, the new Liverpool signing that Tottenham needed to watch was Alberto Moreno.

An hour into the clash at White Hart Lane, the Spanish left-back/Steven Gerrard-Xabi Alonso lovechild picked the ball up off a dozing Andros Townsend and tore at the Spurs goal, leaving everyone behind and producing the type of finish that a forward like Balotelli would be proud of.

 

Keep On Running II

Stoke had lost every one of their 12 Premier League games in Manchester since being promoted in 2008, which is coincidentally around about the same time that Mame Biram Diouf set off on this run at the Etihad Stadium.

Yes, Joe Hart should have saved it, but why focus on that? This was brilliant from the former Manchester United man.

 

Wayne Routledge Takes Off

It was revealed this week that Roy Hodgson hasn’t once been to watch a Swansea City match at the Liberty Stadium in his two-and-a-half years in the England job.

With goals like this from Wayne Routledge, he’s missing out.

Gameweek 3

DEFENCE: Fabricio Coloccini, Newcastle – £4.5m (Home v Crystal Palace)

A huge haul of nine Fantasy points from Newcastle’s goalless draw at Aston Villa made Fabricio Coloccini the only winner of that game, certainly amongst all of us who had to endure watching it.

The Argentinean isn’t always the soundest Fantasy pick, but on a tough weekend to call he should marshal a United defence which stands a good chance of keeping out a Crystal Palace side now under the stewardship of Neil Warnock, whilst the Geordies have got some decent fixtures coming up too.

 

MIDFIELD: Gylfi Sigurdsson, Swansea – £6.3m (Home v West Brom)

The Iceman Gylfi Sigurdsson continues to see his price rise as his second spell at Swansea begins with a bang.

It’s West Brom at home for the Swans this week, and although that is then followed by a trip to Chelsea, the next five fixtures look pretty kind.

FORWARD: Stevan Jovetic, Manchester City – £8.0m (Home v Stoke)

After shooting down Liverpool by scoring a brace against them for third time in his career (once in this pre-season and once for Fiorentina five years ago) Stevan Jovetic is suddenly a man in form.

With Edin Dzeko not quite firing just yet it will be interesting to see what would happen if Manuel Pellegrini opted to field Jovetic upfront with Sergio Aguero. Interesting, and undoubtedly tough for Stoke City.

 

THE OUTSIDER (a player with less than 5% ownership): Cheikhou Kouyate – £5.0m (Home v Southampton)

Not so much an outsider as a way outsider, combative midfielder Cheikhou Kouyate has completed 90 minutes in both of West Ham’s game’s so far, registering an assist against Crystal Palace.

He’s not going to win you masses and masses of points, but sometimes you just want a player who you know you’ll get an honest stint out of, and the Senegalese could be your man.

 

THE CAPTAIN: Sergio Aguero, Manchester City – £12.0m (Home v Stoke)

After his brief and remarkable cameo appearance against Liverpool, surely Sergio Aguero is now ready to make his first Premier League start of the season as City host Stoke at the Etihad.

Granted, the champions face two tricky looking fixtures in the immediate aftermath of this one, but even if he’s on the bench the Argentinean has proven to be a huge goal threat when he comes on.

Can you afford to keep ignoring him?

The 5 Best Things About Premier League Week 2: Including Erik Lamela’s Tottenham Performance

Zarate Kick

We knew that Mauro Zarate would be an exciting signing for West Ham, but this?

The Argentinean’s brilliant first goal for the club has caught the imagination of the Hammers fans, and the forward has already become a favourite with those same supporters. He might even get a few to start liking Sam Allardyce.

 

Erik Lamela Isn’t Allergic To A Spurs Shirt

In other Argentinean-based news, the resurrection of Tottenham’s Erik Lamela continued with a fine display in the 4-0 win over QPR.

A year on from his £30m move from Roma, the winger finally displayed his true colours as Harry Redknapp’s men were put the sword. The beginning of a beautiful friendship?

 

Joey Barton Eats His Words

Ashley Young Takes Off Again

Ashley Young? Diving? Whoever would have thought it?

The Manchester United man was back doing what he does best in the draw at Sunderland, jumping into Wes Brown in his own exaggerated fashion in a desperate attempt to win a penalty.

What do you reckon? A 9? 9.5?

 

Alan Pardew

Just… Alan Pardew.
