🤩 EOTK FPL Gameweek 2 Review 🤩: Haaland & Isak disappoint, who captained Mitoma? Brentford on the rise...
Who's topping the EOTK League? Which teams and LFC stars are winning ALL the points! Find out all this and more below!
Welcome to Empire’s Fantasy Premier League review! Let’s see how the league’s starting to shape up!
So, let’s quickly explain how this all works. Every single gameweek we’ll be reviewing the live leaderboard (below) and sharing the top ten players in the EOTK League and matching it up against our writers’ efforts!

For those trying out FPL for the first time, GOAL advise players to keep in mind the following ranges when tracking their scores:
“FPL gurus and seasoned managers generally agree that averaging 50-59 points every gameweek is the bare minimum target. A gameweek score between 60-75 points is considered good, and between 76-99 points are excellent. 100 points or more is an outstanding achievement that falls into winner's bracket.
“Using the gameweek's average score as a benchmark is potentially a more effective method since it changes automatically each week and makes it easier to track your progress. By attaining the gameweek's average points throughout the season, you will at least be in the top half by the end of the season.”
You’ll see weekly updates on the Liverpool players bringing in the most points on average, plus the BIG hitters from the other fixtures across the Premier League (watch out for Solly March, Bryan Mbeumo and Diogo Jota this week!).
💭 Own up. Which genius captained Karou Mitoma? Or either one of Solly March or Pervis Estupinan for that matter? Hats off to you all!
As ever, we’re supplying weekly form rankings, so you can get an idea of the players that are beginning to hit form at the right moment, hopefully, before their transfer fees soar through the roof!
