Gameweek 22 Review: Chris Brunt- FPL Gold

Chris Brunt (5.0) bagged his third goal of the season this weekend in his side's 2-0 win v Sunderland. The Irishman missed the first 7 games of the season due to a long-term injury that kept him out of Northern Ireland's Euro campaign, but now is back to his best playing out of his FPL position of defence as a left winger. Brunt is renowned for his sweet left foot and eye for goal, having scored 22 goals in 6 and a half seasons, along with 43 assists. The Baggies have a favourable run of fixtures coming up, so coverage of their ever-solid defence and able goalscorers from defence seems essential.

Ones To Watch Over The FA Cup Fixtures

This weekend brought new players to our attention again but should be tracked over the FA Cup break next weekend. Tom Davies again performed to a standard well above his 18 years, with the assist for Seamus Coleman's goal. Everton looked to have improved and will only get better this year with the signings of Morgan Schneiderlin and Ademola Lookman to replace the ageing Gareth Barry. Nacer Chadli is back to full fitness and the provider for WBA on Saturday. Swansea's dynamic duo Gylfi Sigurdsson and Llorente are to be reconsidered under the new management at the Liberty and Saido Berahino could be the missing piece of the Stoke City jigsaw.

Don't Dwell On Winter Blues

If you didn't fair too well this gameweek, don't worry. The average points were the lowest of the season so far and the 'big-hitters' failed to hit big scores, so you have not lost too much ground. Consistent performers were key to a good score this gameweek though, as the likes of Sanchez, Alli and the returning Diego Costa were all on target yet again, as the Chelsea and West Brom defences did not disappoint.
