Premier League: Team of Round 7

Round 7 of the Premier League saw the average Superbru fantasy team score increase to 59 despite their being a lack of a very strong individual scorer. Harry Kane was this week's best performer as the England captain picked up a brace at Huddersfield to help him to 13 points.

This week's complete XI of top scoring players is shown below. The strong Wolves defence means this team was not quite possible to select in our 11-a-side fantasy game due to their being one too many players from the newly promoted side, though information on other strong scorers is provided below.


Rui Patricio was the outright top scoring goalkeeper in Round 7 after making six saves to keep a clean sheet in Wolves' 2-0 win over Southampton at Molineux. Currently only owned by 3% of Superbru fantasy managers, the Portuguese international is now the fifth highest scoring keeper this season and has three favourable fixtures coming up in the next three rounds. Patricio is joined by two of his team mates in this TOTR with wing backs Doherty and Castro Otto (Jonny) both also scoring strongly in Round 7. The pair combined for the second goal which sealed the home win with Doherty assisting Jonny.

Tottenham's Kieran Trippier is another defender to make the XI after assisting Harry Kane's opening goal at Huddersfield but it was Harry Maguire who gave managers the best defensive return this weekend thanks to a goal and a clean sheet at Newcastle. Maguire is one of the most popular defenders in our 11-a-side game (owned by 40%) - only second to Chelsea's Marcos Alonso. His additional point over Castro Otto is down to the latter picking up a booking.


It's never easy to pick Manchester City players in either of our fantasy games, simply because the strength of their squad makes it very difficult to predict who will actually start each game. Raheem Sterling was this week's star for the reigning champions as he played a direct part in both goals as City defeated Brighton 2-0 (goal and an assist). It was points picked up for the number of successful dribbles Sterling completed that ensured he was the highest scoring midfielder of Round 8; one point ahead of Burnley's Jóhann Berg Gudmundsson. Matching Sterling's goal and assist, Gudmundsson's crucial performance against Cardiff to help the Clarets to a 2-1 away win made him the best possible pick in Sunday's round of our 5-a-side fantasy game. Though picked by very few brus in our 11-a-side game, 10% of you picked Gudmundsson for your Cardiff/Bournemouth hybrid teams on Day 18 of the 5-a-side.

Tricky Cardiff winger Josh Murphy was the man to notch for the home side in that defeat against Burnley and that goal along with an impressive number of dribbles and fouls won earn him a place in the TOTR. Murphy's tally of 9 points matches that of Everton's Gylfi Sigurdsson who could have had even more points had he tucked home a penalty against Fulham! The Icelandic international impressively made up for that miss with a brace to appease the fantasy managers who own him.

Finally, one of either Eden Hazard or Felipe Anderson were the fifth best options for your midfield in Round 7. Chelsea's Hazard remains the highest scoring player in our game so far this season after his second vital goal against Liverpool in the space of four days while Felipe Anderson's clever finish against Manchester United should not go unnoticed by Superbru players. With West Ham now suddenly looking very strong after an awful start, wingers Anderson and Yarmolenko look set to be strong goal-scorers within Pellegrini's team as well as striker Marko Arnautovic.


Arnautovic was one of a few strikers to manage a single goal in the Premier League this weekend but the shortage of forwards to have scored more than once and get themselves more points than the likes of Hazard and Anderson means Harry Kane is the only striker in this week's TOTR. Sergio Aguero's 8 points against Brighton mean he was an equally good option to the aforementioned wide players but it was only Kane that outscored Aguero and indeed every other player in the league in this round. Tottenham's main man is already owned by 46% of you and that figure will likely increase, at least in the short term, due to Spurs playing Cardiff next.

Remember, Tottenham and many other teams are in European action across the next three days though so you're best off waiting until Friday morning before making too many changes ahead of the Friday evening deadline.

Let us know in the comments how you got on in each of our fantasy games during the past few days! The opening game of what will be Round 8 in our Premier League predictor and 11-a-side game is a Friday night clash between Brighton and West Ham meaning that's a standalone fixture in the 5-a-side fantasy before Saturday and Sunday rounds that include six and three matches respectively.
