Who Is BPL Best 11 Sept 1 2014

WhoScored BPL Best 11 as of Sept 1 2014

According to WhoScored.com these are the best 11 players in the Barclay’s Premier League as of August 31, 2014.

No surprise to see Diego Costa there with a perfect score. So interesting to see Matic (8.9) and Schneiderlin (9.5) in there. Where are the creative midfielders? Chelsea are 3-0 and Cesc Fabregas is having a huge impact there but he does not make the Best 11.

It makes you wonder what qualifies as “Best”. In their roles Matic and Schneiderlin are not ones to take risks. Now sometimes that helps a team but on the other hand if you don’t take risks and try to create things, how do you score goals? For instance on Saturday Manchester United woefully lacked creativity in drawing 0-0 with Burnley. No surprise then that Phil Jones makes it into the 11. Not only was the defender not on the pitch for a goal against but he also clearly didn’t give the ball away much and probably won a few against a lower level team…

Diego Costa scored 2 vs Everton

Diego Costa scored 2 vs Everton

Diego Costa gets our Stamp of Approval for his two goals today vs Everton – a day on which he was – according to reports during the week – not even supposed to play.

In fact, some mid-week reports had Costa out for up to six weeks.

Chelsea Tweeters were apoplectic all week – and then Costa not only played but scored two in the Goal Fest at Goodison.

Those 2 goals give Costa 4 in total in 3 matches and as of this post have him atop the BPL scoring chart.
