Alternative Premier League, Gameweek 13: Tottenham Is This Week’s Winner

alternative route Alternative Premier League, Gameweek 13: Tottenham Is This Weeks Winner

Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to the Alternative Premier League Week 13 Rundown, and this week’s winners are…Tottenham Hotspur!

With all around them only managing draws, Spurs’s impressive win at The Hawthorns saw them close the gap on those above them, and pull away from those below. In fact, Tottenham’s score of 7.66 was the highest score of the weekend by some margin, with only Wigan and Everton coming close to breaking the seven point barrier. Manchester City’s draw has also allowed the Lilywhites, who are averaging 6.87 points over their last five games, to creep above them at the top of the form table too. With Bolton making the trip to White Hart Lane on Saturday you have to think that Spurs’ great run of form is going to get better before it gets worse.

It isn’t often that Wigan are among the big hitters when the points are added up, but their win at Sunderland was enough to move them off bottom spot and open up a little breathing space between themselves and Blackburn.  The Latics were heading towards a modest total of 3.54 points before Franco Di Santo benefitted from some fairground defending from Sunderland. His goal as good as doubled Wigan’s score to 6.93 and bagged their first away win of the season.

Everton moved up an astonishing seven places from 15th to 8th after their away win at Bolton. Their tally of 6.96 points was the second best of the weekend and their third away win of the season. Chelsea were the only top seven team, other than Spurs, to pick up a win. They brushed aside Wolves to win comfortably by three goals to nil, a win that moved them up one place to sixth, but still three points behind Liverpool.

With four of the top five playing each other it was inevitable that some points were going to be dropped, and with both games being draws the share of the spoils were all pretty equal. As Liverpool were playing the highest ranked team of the four, Manchester City, their score of 3.96 was the highest of the four teams, while Manchester United playing the lowest ranked, Newcastle, scored the lowest score of 3.80 points.
