Hey guys, how are you doing? How was your FPL week? Excited to check out the players that made CrossAndNod’s FPL team of the week for gameweek 3?
For many FPL managers, this season hasn’t quite clicked. Mané and Kane blanked this past gameweek. So, we know most managers had a dreadful FPL week.
Anyways, here are the players that make up a 116-point FPL team of the week for gameweek 3.
FPL Team of the Week for GW3
You wish you had these guys in your team. All the more reason why you need to look out for the CrossAndNod Scout picks every Thursday.
Angus Gunn (Southampton, 7 points)
Of the three goalkeepers to keep a clean sheet in gameweek 3, Gunn made the most saves (3) as Southampton defeated in-form Brighton and Hove Albion.
Bjorn Engels (Aston Villa, 9 points)
Engels had a fantastic game at the back as Villa ended Everton’s unbeaten run. In fact, Aston Villa were the only home team to record a clean sheet in gameweek 3.
Jannik Vestergaard (Southampton, 9 points)
A future FPL differential you should have, he was the best Southampton defender against Brighton. He was rewarded for his 6 clearances, 4 aerial duels, 3 tackles, 2 interceptions and 2 chances created with 3 FPL bonus points.
Fabian Schar (Newcastle United, 8 points)
Fabian Schar was part of a 3-man centre-back pairing that stole 3 points and a clean sheet from Tottenham Hotspur. He made 7 clearances, 4 tackles, 2 aerial duels, and 2 interceptions.
Joel Matip (Liverpool, 9 points)
The Cameroonian made 3 tackles, 3 interceptions, and 4 aerial duels as Liverpool defeated Arsenal on Saturday. His goal against the Gunners also means this is his highest goal-scoring season for the Reds (after just 4 games).
Mohammed Salah (Liverpool, 15 points)
The Gunners defence had no answer for Salah as he made quick work of those who were assigned to mark him. He now has 6 goals against Arsenal, the joint-most he has managed against any opponent.
David Silva (Manchester City, 10 points)
In his 400th appearance for Manchester City, the Spaniard made 68 touches, 8 recoveries, 3 take ons, 2 tackles, created 2 chances and made 2 assists. The greatest City player of all time?
Nathan Redmond (Southampton, 10 points)
The midfielder’s second goal sealed the win for Southampton, their first this season. He finished with 10 points and looks in good form for the coming weeks.
Sergio Aguero (Manchester City, 13 points)
The Argentine reminded us of his importance to the City team as last week’s touchline drama with Pep Guardiola couldn’t keep him out of the starting eleven. Only two players have scored in all three gameweeks this season (Aguero and Pukki).
Sebastien Haller (West Ham United, 13 points)
West Ham’s record signing showed fans (and FPL managers) what to expect from him this season with 2 well-taken goals.
Tammy Abraham (Chelsea, 13 points)
Chelsea finally recorded their first win of the season in a hard-fought battle against Norwich City. 2 goals from 3 attempts highlight how clinical Abraham can be in front of goal.
