GW2’s Result of Wing Fantasy Football update

After the excitement of the return of the fantasy premier league game week 1, last weekend saw managers casting their eyes again over statistics, form guides and transfer rumours. Things have started to warm up with the average score rising from 34pts in GW1 to 44pts in GW2.

GW2 saw title contenders Man City brush aside last year’s champions Chelsea in dismissive fashion, with captain Terry being substituted for the first time in his BPL career under Mourinho. Owners of City stars Silva (11) and defender Kompany (11) were well rewarded, along with a return to the fray by FPL favourite Aguero, announcing his return with a goal.

However it was possibly Everton with the biggest surprise of the week with a superb 0-3 away win against last year’s usually impenetrable Southampton defence. FPL favourites Coleman (11), Barkley (11) and Lukaku (13) all contributing.

The weekly winner of the Wing $20 prize was Kimto Lay and their Veal En Try United side. The wily manager not only picked Leicester’s Mahrez, but also captained the same player in GW2 for 20 points. With three Man City players in their starting XI along with Benteke (9) and Payet (9), a total score of 74 was perhaps expected, yet they also had another 13 points on the bench.
