With the heavily tipped Aston Villa side yet to play their second match of the Gameweek, and Liverpool taking on Portsmouth tonight, it is hard to assess The Fantasist's performance this weekend.

If anything, the weekend's action proved there is nothing wrong with being obvious.

It doesn't take a genius to know that Wayne Rooney and Didier Drogba are good, but when they are weighing in with respective hauls of 31 and 29 points, just stop trying to be clever and pick them.

Florent Malouda was the week's top scorer with 31.5, while Spurs striker Roman Pavlyuchenko is still only 10.76 despite another storming week.

Basically, Fantasist successes were pretty thin on the ground, with the likes of Ross Turnbull (3 points) and Rafael Da Silva (did not play) failing to do the business.

It is up to Pepe Reina, Fernando Torres and the entire Aston Villa side to turn things around over the next couple of nights.
