Tom Heaton – England’s Number One?

Tom Heaton is currently the best goalkeeper on FPL, having racked up fifty points so far this season. Heaton is currently being hailed as one of the top keepers in the division, and his performance at Old Trafford, where United had thirty-seven shots without scoring and Heaton made eleven saves, is being called one of the very best. The brute stats backing up Heaton’s performances so far this season are overwhelming, so I want to just rattle off a few in his defence. Then I will examine the United game to see how far it affects his overall stats. And then I want to look at what I think is a very interesting feature of Heaton’s game, which underlines why he is a top keeper and how he will fare in future weeks as a result of this feature.

Fantasy Premier League 2014/15 Gameweek 34 Review (Part 2)

Fantasy Premier League 2014/15 Gameweek 34 Review (Part 2) is about “what could have been” as certain sides at the bottom end of the table shot themselves in the foot in their survival efforts.
