Gameweek 2 Review ; Budget Enablers :
• Goalkeepers : Two £4.0m goalkeepers started again for their clubs in Gameweek 2.
David Moyes’ decision to make Alphonse Areola (£4.0m) his new number one was vindicated on Sunday, when he saved Enzo Fernandez’s (£5.0m) penalty in the derby.
• Defenders : With Burnley and Luton Town blanking in Gameweek 2, cut-price options at the back were limited to say the least.
The newly-promoted pair provided five £4.0m starters between them in Gameweek 1, with Jordan Beyer and Issa Kabore in particular catching the eye.
– George Baldock (£4.0m) missed out with a “slight issue” to his calf.
– Despite a disappointing defeat, Malo Gusto (£4.0m) made a promising full debut. He looked assured for the most part and attempted four crosses, sitting deeper than Ben Chilwell (£5.7m) on the opposite flank.
– Adam Webster (£4.4m) returned from injury for Brighton and Hove Albion, pushing Jan Paul van Hecke (£4.0m) out of the starting XI.
• Midfeilders : Not only did Pape Sarr (£4.5m) and Carney Chukwuemeka (£4.5m) start in Gameweek 2, but they also got on the scoresheet.
– Fulham’s Sasa Lukic (£4.5m) started in the role we’re used to seeing Joao Palhinha (£5.0m) in.
• Forwards : It’s two attacking returns in as many Gameweeks for Bournemouth forward Antoine Semenyo (£4.5m), who followed up his assist off the bench in Gameweek 1 with a goal at Anfield. Deployed on the right-wing, he was arguably the Cherries’ biggest goal threat, racking up three shots.
– William Osula (£4.5m) had another chance to impress for Sheffield United on Friday, playing 73 minutes, with Oliver McBurnie (£5.5m) and Daniel Jebbison (£5.0m) still nursing injuries. His hold-up play was good but longer-term, there are doubts if he’ll remain a regular starter.
