Gylfi Sigurdsson is well worth considering for Week 2 given his opening weekend performance, and his fixture against Burnley.
Boss Garry Monk allowed Sigurdsson the freedom to roam just behind Wilfried Bony and this led to him causing the Manchester United defence all sorts of problems, as he grabbed an assist, a match-winning goal and a whole load of Yahoo fantasy points. That was at Old Trafford, so you have to wonder what the set piece specialist may be capable of at home to Burnley in Week Two. Aug 22 - 4:29 AM

Swansea City spoil Manchester United's home opener with a 1-2 win over the Red Devils, led by a goal and an assist from Gylfi Sigurdsson.

They say you can never go home again, but don't tell Sigurdsson that. After making a huge splash in his initial go around with the Swans, Siggy picked up right where he left off, excelling in his central attacking role. He was given too much room to operate by the United defense, and he made the hosts pay. He cued up a wide open Ki Sung-Yueng for the opening goal in the first half, then scored himself a game-winner in the second half after United had leveled things. This opening fixture kept many a fantasy manager away from considering Swansea players, but starting Week 2 they have some very attractive opponents and managers should now have plenty of reason and confidence to invest in them.

Garry Monk stated that Gylfi Sigurdsson must prepare to play anywhere needed if he is to be a "proper player" for Swansea City.

Sigurdsson has let it be known before that he prefers the #10 role and that he is best playing down the middle. His performance history would back up that claim. Monk has two quality strikers that he may want to use on the pitch together and is letting Siggy know that he may be required to lend his services on the flank from time to time. Naturally, you want Siggy for fantasy if he is playing in the hole. With the season opener at Old Trafford, a wait and see approach on Monk's formation plans may be the best advice.

Gylfi Sigurdsson has completed his move to Swansea from Tottenham.

Sigurdsson spent the 2011/12 season on loan at Swansea from Hoffenheim and had an extremely successful spell, scoring seven goals, but the resulting move to Spurs never really worked out. He returns to the Liberty Stadium on a permanent basis as part of the deal that saw Ben Davies and Michel Vorm move in the opposite direction. The move makes sense for both the clubs and the player, and would also be good news for fantasy managers, with Sigurdsson likely to be handed a first team role and set piece duty under Garry Monk's stewardship.

Tottenham midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson has flown back from the club's pre-season training camp in Seattle ahead of a potential move to Swansea.

So after a week of rumours linking Sigurdsson to Crystal Palace after a fee was agreed, it appears the midfielder is returning to his former club Swansea. The 24-year-old is set to have a medical on Tuesday as part of a straight swap for Swansea's Wales full-back Ben Davies. The move makes sense for both the clubs and the player, and would also be good news for fantasy managers, with Sigurdsson likely to be handed a first team role and set piece duty if the transfer goes through.

Crystal Palace have agreed a fee for Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson, Sky sources understand.

Despite some good goals Sigurdsson has never settled at Spurs, finding the bloated midfield options difficult to navigate to allow him his fair share of first team football, and rumours of a move have grown stronger over the past 6 months. A return to former club Swansea had been suggested, but Sky Sports are reporting that Palace have agreed a fee of around £8million for the player and it would be a great coup for Tony Pulis. It would also be good news for fantasy managers, with Sigurdsson likely to be handed a first team role and set piece duty if the transfer goes through.

Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins has confirmed midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson's return to the club was discussed as part of a deal that could see defender Ben Davies go to Tottenham Hotspur.

Despite some good goals Sigurdsson has never settled at Spurs, finding the bloated midfield options difficult to navigate to allow him his fair share of first team football, and rumours of a move have grown stronger over the past 6 months. One would expect him to welcome a move back to Swansea - where he played the best football of his career - and this could help Spurs seal a deal for Ben Davies, who is reportedly Mauricio Pochettino's first choice to fill the left-back spot for the new season. However, a deal still sounds some way away, with swap deals notoriously complicated and with both clubs still haggling over the value of both players.

Gylfi Sigurdsson scored a wonderful opening goal but Spurs made tough work of Hull, eventually winning via a thrilling penalty shoot-out.

It really was a great strike by Sigurdsson, who has been in fine goalscoring form for Spurs this season. Hull pegged their opponents back after a scrappy fumble by Brad Friedel led to an own goal and then took the lead via Paul McShane in extra time, before Harry Kane levelled. Friedel made amends with two penalty saves in the shoot-out as the home side ran out 8-7 winners.

Gylfi Sigurdsson scored twice as Tottenham earnt a deserved 2-0 victory over Norwich City.

Sigurdsson is likely to find his starting opportunities limited this season so he will need to make the most of those he does get - and he certainly did today with two close range finishes. Christian Eriksen was hugely impressive on debut as Spurs enjoyed the majority of possession and should have scored more than two goals.

Tottenham have announced that they have reached agreement with Ajax for the transfer of Christian Eriksen.

What a day for Tottenham. Eriksen completes the hat-trick after Vlad Chiriches and Erik Lamela joined the club earlier in the day. The skillful Danish midfielder is only 21-years-old but already has 37 caps for Denmark and Champions League experience, and is an upgrade on existing midfielders in the squad such as Gylfi Sigurdsson. Siggy could now find himself on the fringes and a loan move is already being rumoured.
