Fantasy Premier League Soccer - Gameweek 4 review

LIVERPOOL V ATHLETICO MADRIDAfter the fourth gameweek there are still 3 teams that continue with a nice looking table, only wins. Chelsea, Tottenham and Man City are yet to experience the bitter taste of defeat as Bolton and Portsmouth still wait for their first taste of victory. Chelsea took the most convincing win of the week, as it beat Burnley 3-0. Burnley's great efforts came to an end as the Blues continued their winning streak with goals from Anelka, Cole and Ballack.

This gameweek offered 7 players that were able to collect over 10 points. 3 were defenders, 3 midfielders and one forward. But let's start with this weeks number one goalkeeper, or I should say goalkeepers, as both Green from West Ham and Sorensen from Stoke both collected 7 points. Sorensen is also the number one goalkeeper in the whole league with 26 points.

Defenders elite came from Chelsea, Everton and Wolves. Cole ended up with 14 points from clean sheet, one scored goal and 2 bonus points. Everton's Baines took home 12 points and Wolverhamptons Stearman 11. Both scored one goal and Baines even managed to assist one also.

Chelsea took the top spot also in midfielders as Ballack collected 11 points and Lampard 10. Lampard's 2 assists may be just what Frankie needs to rise to the level he was in last season. Tottenham's Lennon was the third 10-points man this gameweek. Lennon also climbed to the top of the midfielderss list looking the whole season with 27 points.

And last but not least. Only forward to go above the 10 point mark was Liverpool striker Torres. Goal and an assist together with 3 bonus points took Torres to 12 points. It seems 11.5M isn't all too much asked for him if he continues to play according to form he seems to be in.

Player of the gameweek: Fernando Torres, Liverpool
