As an American, I probably take too much satisfaction in not knowing the meaning or origin of Boxing Day. Instead, I revel in ignorance that it means when Christmas is finally over, everybody is ready to beat the shit out of something (or one another), because, well, isn’t that the most prevalent post-holiday emotion? So, when the time comes, Happy Boxing Day everyone and I hope you all beat the shit out of your opponents in GW20.

Let’s get started.

  • Postscript from GW19: Christmas came early for Salah / Firmino / Ozil / Coutinho / Can / Mane / Xhaka / Alexis owners in GW19, but none did it better than Salah. I feel like his goal was mostly underrated by EPL punditry. Salah did so many things in 11 seconds. He started the counter by taking poor Jack for a winter stroll before giving the football to Firmino for temporary safe keeping. He then cut a path through five more Arsenal defenders, took the ball back perfectly in stride with a sumptuous first touch, paused to use Mustafi as a human shield, gave Cech the eyes, and *gasp* perfectly finished to the bottom left corner with a bouncing finessed curler. Wilshere, who had the best view in the house while running through Salah’s wake, needed a post coital cigarette when it was all over. Sterling’s improbable but undeniable form continued with another 20+ point performance and Diouf scored 3.5 points off the bench.
  • Studs: Laurent Depoitre has three goals in three games along with two assists since coming off the bench in GW17 for made-of-glass Mounie. Despite looking and playing a bit like a Belgian version of Glenn Murray, I’ve rated him highly vs. Stoke. In less surprising news, Salah marches on as the overall #1 start in Togga.
  • Duds: Even I draw the line somewhere. All the scheming, blocking, and organization in the world won’t save Lukasz Fabianski and Nick Pope in GW20. I’ll also add Michail Antonio back to the trash heap for the foreseeable future – usage, minutes, no trust from Moyes. It’s all gone wrong, but I still love the player and would buy low given the chance.
