Gameweek 36 finally ended last night to complete the last double gameweek of the fantasy football season. There were some incredibly high scoring matches including the 4-4 between Swansea and Wolves, and the 6-1 mauling of QPR at the hands of a rejuvenated Chelsea side. Without further ado here is a round up of the top fantasy football performers from Gameweek 36 in a valid Fantasy Premier League formation:
- Ben FOSTER (10pts, 4.8m) – West Brom continued their fine defensive form with a clean sheet at the weekend against fellow Midlands side Aston Villa. Foster made three important saves and was rewarded with the maximum bonus points score as the Baggies’ defence finish the season strongly.
- Kyle WALKER (16pts, 6.3m) – Spurs had a productive Gameweek 36, picking up two wins in their pursuit of a Champions League spot. Walker grabbed most of his points against Blackburn, curling home a beauty of a free kick and collecting a clean sheet in the process.
- Vincent KOMPANY (14pts, 6.7m) – Despite playing only the one game, Kompany finds himself in the Dream Team after shutting United out and grabbing the all important winner in the derby that meant so much for the title race. City are now at the top of the table but face the daunting task of taking on Newcastle(A) in Gameweek 37.
- Davide SANTON (11pts, 4.2m) – Newcastle have been in excellent defensive form picking up 4 clean sheets in their last 5 games. Santon also grabbed a premier league fantasy assist in the impressive away win at Chelsea, where Cisse stole the show with an incredible brace.
- Rafael VAN DER VAART (22pts, 9.6m) – Van der Vaart was the highest scoring player in fantasy football gameweek picking up 2 double-figure hauls. VDV scored in both matches, picking up an assist and 4 bonus points in addition. Spurs seem to have found their form again and will look to push on for the final two gameweeks.
- Steven PIENAAR (18pts, 7.2m) – Pienaar was excellent against Fulham creating 3 of their 4 goals but struggled away at Stoke, who also held Arsenal in Gameweek 36. Pienaar has rediscovered his undoubted ability at Everton and Moyes will be doing all he can to bring the South African back on a permanent basis.
- Juan MATA (17pts, 9.7m) – Mata had a similar gameweek to Pienaar, where he created 4 goals in Chelsea’s first match at home to QPR but was limited to one half in the Newcastle game. Chelsea face Liverpool in the FA Cup final on Saturday and Mata will be vital for Chelsea’s chances of silverware this season.
- Victor MOSES (16pts, 5.3m) – Wigan pulled out one of the best performances of the gameweek beating Newcastle 4-0 to boost their survival chances with 2 games left. Wigan’s quick start left Newcastle stumped and Moses was in the right place at the right time for both of his goals, which helped him to an impressive double-figure haul.
- Fernando TORRES (19pts, 9.9m) – Torres seems to be finally making a comeback after collecting a premier league fantasy hat trick against QPR at the weekend. The Spaniard has struggled this season but is finishing strongly and could still have a great season if he plays an important role in the FA Cup final or the Champions League final.
- Luis SUAREZ (17pts, 9.3m) – One of Torres’ replacements at Liverpool also scored a hat trick at the weekend. However, all of Suarez’s finishes were considerably better with an excellent 40 yard lob. These two strikers are hitting form at the perfect time with them likely to face each other in the FA Cup final.
- Kevin DAVIES (15pts, 5.6m) – Davies is an unlikely name to see in the Dream Team but a brace against Sunderland helped him to a double-figure haul and Davies completes our roundup. Bolton face the Baggies next and will look to Davies to grab an important goal to give their survival hopes a much-needed boost.
