If you take Manchester City out of the picture, what a fun Barclays Premier League start we have had. Sensational wins by West Ham at Liverpool and Arsenal to go with Crystal Palace winning at the mighty Chelsea. The biggest surprise for me is to see Chelsea conceding at least 2 goals per game in all 4 opening games. The international break is at the right time for them before they have back to back tough games visiting Everton and hosting Arsenal. Already 8 points behind league leaders City they almost look like must win games this early in the season.
Fantasy wise as pointed out by Jasonuk17 in his Pre Deadline post, the big names are not getting on the scoresheet despite the at times, really poor defending. Wayne Rooney was in that very list and he will get a chance today to change that sequence, fresh of the back of his hatty in Champions League qualification midweek.
An unconvincing Red Devil attack could move them within 2 pts of their Manchester rivals with a win at Swansea City. On paper that sounds great but It does though look a pretty tough challenge for the current Utd starting 11. The Swans continue to develop under the bright managament of Gary Monk and have the pace and movement to cause Utd plenty of problems. Against the best attack they have faced this season (by some way in my view) I don't see a United clean sheet today. If i am correct we will need to see the likes of Wayne Rooney and Memphis Depay open their 2015/16 goal accounts for Utd to come away with a result.
First up is a Southampton side struggling with a brand new defence and a couple of unsettled 1st team players hosting a bold Norwich City side. Norwich may be getting the Saints at the right time with them sat in the bottom three and fresh of defeat in europe Thursday evening.
In week 4 I'm sat on 86 Fantrax points with Memphis Depay left which seems a good week so far. Hopefully he can go big making it a very good score for me. In the official game I also have Memphis to play while in Perfect 11 Im sat on 96 points and all done.
Have you anybody left from your fantasy side? Do you think Manchester United will wake up in the final third today?
