The Premiership is back with a bang! Its kicked off with Man United beating Leicester City on Friday evening. The promoted teams all struggled this weekend with only Wolves getting a point against Everton. The performance of the weekend went to Liverpool who battered West Ham 4-0. There were
lots of eye catching performances from players new to the league, who’ll no doubt will be added to a number of fantasy teams this week.
After game week 1 the Top 5 managers in our league are as follows;
|1||Matt J||Neville’s Advocate||108 pts|

Manager of the Week
Our first manager of the week is Matt Jone (Neville’s Advocate) who scored 108 pts. Despite all 3 of his strikers scoring 2pts each he managed the highest score of the week. He had Salah as captain as well all 4 of his midfielders scoring at least one goal each. 4 of his starting 11 made the team of the week.

Pereyra of Watford was the player of the week with 16 pts.
Levitate’s Players to watch for August
After the success (or lack of) of my weekly recommendation last season, I have decided to offer a few suggestions of players to watch in the month ahead. At the start of each month, I will recommend 3 players who I think will have a good month.
Andrew Robertson – Liverpool – Defender (£6m)
Liverpool’s remaining games in August are Crystal Palace (A) and Brighton (H)
James Maddison – Leicester – Midfielder (£6.5m)
Leicester’s remaining games in August are Wolves (H) and Southampton (A)
Cenk Tosun – Everton – Forward (£7m)
Everton’s remaining games in August are Southampton (H) and Bournemouth (A)
Gameweek 2 kicks off on Saturday with Cardiff City hosting Newcastle United in the early kick off and concludes with Crystal Palace vs Liverpool on Monday evening. The game of the weekend is Chelsea vs Arsenal at 17:30 on Saturday.
Good luck for week 2.
