With 71 points, manager Marko V’s “****sniper” team (we’ll have to see what we can do about that name) has a commanding lead after GW1 of the Best Player in the World Fantasy Premier League.
His starting 11 consisted of 2 Dream Team players: Phillipe Coutinho and Gareth McAuley, the captained Sergio Aguero and the penalty-taking Riyad Mahrez.
Marko’s team was also aided by Stoke’s Xherdan Shaqiri. The multi-national Swiss-Kosovar-Albanian Shaqiri cost £6.5 and is held by 10.5% of the FPL world.
John V, Ian V, Mike T and Flynn T will be targeting Marko in Game Week 2, hoping to knock him off his perch.
