FFB Team of the Week (#4)

Right, so here at FFB headquarters, we’ve got Watford onto win the league: they’re the only team with 100% records in the Premier League alongside Chelsea and Liverpool. Manchester United bounced back like Alan Partridge as did Unai Emery, as Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang finally got played together and surprise surprise linked up well in a 3-2 win over Cardiff. Everton were shite despite Jake bigging them up on Episode #30 this week, Newcastle were unfortunate and West Ham were desperate.

 

GOALKEEPER

Alisson: Yeah, he made a dozen saves and played well at the King Power but he also made that mistake that led to Leicester’s goal. Is the Liverpool #1 jersey cursed? JD

Petr Cech: Can we play two goalkeepers? Of course we can, we’re FFB, we do what we want. Cech cannot play Emery’s style out from the back and needs to go for Bernd Leno. It’s simple really. Arsenal’s 3-2 win covers it up well but you can’t mask Cech’s inadequacies this season and, in fact, the previous two seasons. JD

DEFENCE

Wes Morgan: Spent the game running as you would in a dream, think you’re going fast but going absolutely nowhere – the demons of retirement inching closer towards you. Jonny Evans or Harry Maguire wouldn’t have missed that sitter in the second half. JD

Phil Bardsley: Prime dickhead behaviour in an otherwise poor performance not just from Bardsley but from the whole Burnley team for the first hour. Bardsley arguably should’ve seen red alongside Marcus Rashford for kick at the forward. JD

Luke Shaw: First time he’s played four full games in a row since his serious injury a couple of years ago, many ruled him out but his perseverence has paid off and rewarded. AJ

MIDFIELD

James Maddison: Now hear me out. I don’t usually put people into this team of the week on actual merit for good performances. James Maddison, however, has looked incredible in the opening four games of the season – impressed me at Old Trafford, scored against Wolves and looked decent at home to Liverpool as well. It will not be long until Southgate comes aknocking. JD

Roberto Pereyra: Does anyone know if anyone is saying his name right? Or are we all just calling him Perriera? Either way he was once again the talisman for Watford as they put Spurs to bed and continued their brilliant start to the season. AJ

Jean Seri: Beautiful lofted assist in a slick Fulham move that lived up to both their and his hype. AJ

ATTACK

Alvaro Morata: Is this man any good? I mean, he’s scored plenty in Serie A, La Liga and the Champions League but was literally vacant in the World Cup and wasn’t much better in the European Championships before that and despite kicking on well in the opening weeks of the previous season, Morata has deservedly played second fiddle a lot to Olivier Giroud since January. JD

Marcus Rashford: Executed a perfect Glasgow kiss to United legend Phil Bardsley in retaliation to a kick, big boy Marcus takes no shit. AJ

Romelu Lukaku: Hate how he ruined me after taking him out of my FPL in exchange for Sergio ‘No Goals’ Aguero this week but took two chances very well, looking promising right now for a United team looking to put form together. AJ
