Fantasy Premier League Gameweek 2 review

Football - Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester City Barclays Premier League

The second gameweek even though just "half a" gameweek turned out be an interesting one. Gameweeks number one goalkeeper was Burnley's Brian Jensen, who wasn't intimidated by the star power in the opposing team ManU. Jensen even saved a penaltykick and 14 points is a great score for a goalkeeper.

Top defender came from Liverpool, Glen Johnson not only kept a clean sheet, he scored one goal and gained an assist. The perfomance also got him 3 bonus points, to the total of 18 points. Now he would of made a great captain.

Gameweeks best midfielders also came from Liverpool, both Dirk Kuyt and Steven Gerrard gathered 11 points. Gerrard with 2 assists, Kuyt with a goal and an assist. It seems Liverpool is on their way to fight for the championship.

If Liverpool was the home for top midfielders, top forwards came from Tottenham. This season's first hat trick saw the light of day when Jermain Defoe scored 3 goals against Hull. That plus 3 bonus points add up to 17 points. Robbie Keane of the same team wasn't a whole lot worse with a goal and 2 assists, when he also got 2 bonus points, his total climbed to 13 points.

Choosing the Player of the gameweek was a tough job but let's give props to the debut team goalkeeper Brian Jensen.
