After taking an early 1-0 lead on a goal by Yohan Cabaye, Newcastle United went down to ten men, but managed to keep pace with Liverpool to earn a point in a 2-2 draw.

Cabaye was the one to watch in the early going, taking some audacious attempts at goal, and scored from about 30 yards out after nonchalantly walking the ball up from midfield. The hero of the day goes to the young unknown Paul Dummett, who scored the second goal after being subbed on at the start of the 2nd half and helped Newcastle get a point out of a situation in which they easily could have come away with nothing.

It wasn't as impressive as Week 1 but Aaron Ramsey continues to churn out the fantasy points even as Arsenal struggle with their attacking form.

With 13 points in the Yahoo format and 9 in the PL.com format, Aaron Ramsey has overcome Arsenal's mediocre attacking start to the season to be a fantasy star. The Welsh midfielder's fast start to the season is far less of a surprise after he took a massive leap forward last season, the only thing he had left to prove was that his performance wasn't a one-year wonder. After two matches, the only question remaining is whether he can stay healthy enough to put together an entire season of excellence.

Nacho Monreal deputized for Kieran Gibbs against Everton in Week 2 and provided one of the few exceptional fantasy performances for the Gunners with 10 points in the Yahoo game and 6 in PL.com.

With relatively few Arsenal players cracking double digits in the Yahoo game, Giroud and Ramsey being the other two, Monreal's performance is worth noting. It is always worth evaluating Arsenal's reserve left back because Kieran Gibbs is injured so frequently. Monreal's performance was strong mostly due to his assist on Olivier Giroud's goal so unless you think Monreal is going to become an assist machine, this probably isn't a performance likely to be replicated.

Nikica Jelavic's Week 2 performance wasn't great but it was the best Hull City could muster in their 1-1 draw with Stoke City.

Breaking double digits in the Yahoo format is a solid barometer that you've had a good fantasy week. Nikica Jelavic can be satisfied that he hit that mark on the strength of his opportunistic opener against the Potters. Where fantasy managers will worry is that he didn't do much else of note during the match. Goals are hard to predict and it's even harder to pick a forward who gets few points other than the goals.

Antonio Valencia showed that he is up to the task of being a right wing back with a strong all-around performance in Week 2 for Manchester United.

One of only two United players in double digits in fantasy in Week 2, Mata was the other, Antonio Valencia had a strong match when it came to the "phantom points" that the Yahoo format gives out. Named a Joel Ward All-Star by the Rotoworld.com Monday Morning Manager for Week 2 for his combination of blocked shots (1), tackles won (6) and passes intercepted (3) this is the sort of performance that can be repeated because it wasn't driven by goals, assists or clean sheets which are harder to predict.

A second scan and further specialist assessments have revealed that Olivier Giroud’s injury is far worse than first feared.

The French striker was "hopeful" post-match on Saturday of making Arsenal’s squad to face Besiktas in this week’s Champions League qualifier but the latest news serves as a huge blow to both the player and the club. Additional tests exposed a hairline fracture of the ankle and the player is now expected to miss the remainder of 2014. With Lukas Podolski and Alexis Sanchez still working on their fitness post-World Cup and Yaya Sanogo dealing with his own injury issues Arsene Wenger must decide whether Joel Campbell is the man to fill the void during this interim period. The summer transfer window will close at 11pm GMT on 1st September 2014.

Hamburg director Dietmar Beiersdorfer has confirmed the club’s interest in Tottenham midfielder Lewis Holtby.

Holtby has never really settled at White Hart Lane and spent the final few months of the last campaign on loan to Fulham. The 23-year-old is determined to get regular first team football this season, but has so far failed to start in the league under Mauricio Pochettino, and with Spurs overloaded with midfield options it could be best for all parties if Holtby was allowed to return to Germany before the transfer window closes on Sunday.

Dwight Gayle scored a first-half hat-trick as Crystal Palace eased past Walsall and into the third round of the Capital One Cup.

This was a much needed confidence booster for the Eagles, who have lost their first two Premier League games and are continuing to struggle without a manager. Gayle has shown moments of class since signing with the club in the summer of 2013 including a brace of goals to derail Liverpool's title challenge back in May, and his hat-trick last night should earn the striker the opportunity to start against Newcastle in Week 3.

Eric Dier is the only player to be featured in both editions of the Best XI.

Dier has had two impressive fantasy weeks so far, with 20 and 24 point displays to show for it. He plays on a respectable Spurs defense and has flashed huge attacking potential, making him likely to continue impressing fantasy managers. At his current price, we recommend him as a fantasy choice in the coming weeks, but the schedule will get tougher and he will not be scoring 20 points every week.

Angel di Maria's move from Real Madrid to Manchester United for approximately $100million has been completed today.

The hero of last season's Champions League final and one of the best players in Europe for the past couple years, Angel di Maria represents a real statement by Manchester United. It has been many years since United flexed their fiscal muscle to buy one of the biggest talents in the world in the prime of his career. Making such a move for Maria in addition to bringing in Luke Shaw, Ander Herrera, and Marcos Rojo with others (Daley Blind? Arturo Vidal?) potentially to follow helps reverse years of talent erosion within the squad. It is questionable whether United will be able to challenge Chelsea and Manchester City this season but their big spending certainly puts them back in the frame to contend in the near future.

Manchester United were shocked 4-0 by MK Dons in League Cup action tonight.

On the night that the red half of Manchester was celebrating the arrival of Angel di Maria a mixed team of senior and relative youngsters were thrashed 4-0 by MK Dons. The starting team did contain Johnny Evans, Danny Welbeck, and Adnan Januzaj so the loss can't be completely dismissed as the result of young players. Di Maria or not Louis Van Gaal has his work cut out for him getting the club back to their former glory.

Everton have announced the signing of veteran striker Samuel Eto'o to a two-year deal on a free transfer after his contract with Chelsea expired at the end of last season.

Looking for depth at the forward position with Arouna Kone returning from injury slowly, Roberto Martinez announced the signing of Samuel Eto'o as a deputy to Romelu Lukaku. In a vacuum, the signing of Eto'o is a solid piece of business as Everton are very thin behind Lukaku. The only concern is that Eto'o is old and expensive and, presumably, resources are limited at Goodison Park. With Sylvain Distin, Gareth Barry and Eto'o there is a lot of money tied up in aging expensive players. It may not happen this season but next season comes with the risk of a high wage bill being spent on players who are declining rapidly.
