Yaya Toure is Gameweek 3’s Unfantasy Player of the Week!
His performance was once again mediocre as Yaya is yet to justify his price tag. Despite being the three-time African Player of the Year, Yaya has shown that he cannot replicate his performance from last season. His one-point FPL score was a the result of a yellow-card for simulation in the match against Stoke City. This was a match that Manchester City was expected to dominated, yet went on to lose 1-0 after an epic display from Mame Biram Diouf. Goal.com had this to say about Yaya’s performance:
"Played as one of the two holding midfielders and still looks a little way off the player who inspired City to the title last season. His passing was a touch slow and overall he could not drive City forward."
With Two Unfantasy Player of the Week Title’s to his name, Yaya Toure has cemented his place as the early front-runner for this year’s title of Unfantasy Player of the Year. However, Wayne Rooney could come charging back into the fray if Manchester United keeps disappointing.
