Matchweek 22 Roundup: Late Winners, Comebacks and Bans
Last week it was storm Ciara and this week storm Dennis caused havoc with many games being postponed around the country. 7OTB players now need to look at the weather forecast as much as football fixtures! Fulham were the shock result of the weekend losing 3-0 at home to bottom of the table Barnsley, while Liverpool's narrow 1-0 win kept most players' hopes alive. It meant five players got all seven selections correct in Matchweek 22.
The best player of the week was Iain courtesy of one extra goal scored vs Drublu in second place, so £100 cash is going to Iain.
In the second week of four for the next team prize of the season, the new pacesetters are Bata after scoring 105 points this week. They now lead the way for the next £700 prize.
Ledley Kings scored 16 points this time.
Ledley King's Talking Points
Man City were handed a two-year ban from UEFA competitions, which makes the future uncertain for the blue side of Manchester. It’s hard to see Pep Guardiola staying after this season, and the same can be said from some top players. Man City will no doubt fight the decision but with the Premier League also investigating foul play, it will be a turbulent time for City.
Sadio Mane’s winner against Norwich put Liverpool 25 points clear at the top of the Premier League, as the Reds continue the best ever start to a campaign in Europe’s top five leagues. That 76 points from a possible 78 this season, and the second-longest unbeaten start in Premier League history, second only to the Invincibles.
Son Heung-min scored a 94th-minute winner to earn Spurs a third successive win, and moved above Sheffield United to within a point of Chelsea who sit in fourth. Son's winner against Villa was Spurs' latest winning goal in the Premier League since 2009.
Leeds were the only side in the Championship’s top seven to earn three points at the weekend, beating fellow promotion hopefuls Bristol City 1-0. The result gives them a three-point cushion ahead of the playoff places.
Fulham were well beaten by relegation-threatened Barnsley. The Tykes are still rock-bottom and six points from safety but the 3-0 win could prove to be a valuable confidence booster with 13 games left to play this season.
QPR came from two behind to beat Stoke 4-2, in an exciting game that saw four goals in 11 minutes in the first half. The Potters scored two goals in four minutes, only for them both to be cancelled out seven minutes later.
Accrington Stanley were 3-2 down with 14 minutes to play, but went on to score a 95th-minute winner to triumph as 4-3 winners over Lincoln.
