Benteke boosts Bayonitis

Gameweek 23 of the Cellcard Fantasy League was a midweek melee that boasted no real shortage of goals.

Man City continued to find the net with alarming regularity at Tottenham, as Edin Dzeko provided the performance of the round with a goal and two assists for 15 points.

The 27-year-old Bosnian striker has been both burning hot and freezing cold this season, with only 5.5 per cent of managers willing to back him this week. Dzeko’s tally was matched by Swansea’s Spanish defender Chico, who scored at one end and kept a clean sheet at the other against the free-falling Fulham.

Liverpool’s fearsome frontmen Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge both amassed 11 points, although the latter would’ve done much better had he not missed a penalty for his hat-trick. Crystal Palace’s midfield maestro Jason Puncheon notched the vital gamewinner against Hull to also rack up 11 points.

The weekly competition was another intriguing affair with Chea Vatana’s Angkor Empire FC lording it over the rest on 97 points. However, Vatana had utilised his wildcard in making seven transfers, thus taking himself out of contention for the Cellcard prizes. Instead, the rewards fell to Rick Dubbeldam and his team Bayonitis. Rick made a legitimate four transfers, including bringing in Aston Villa hitman Christian Benteke for 18 points.

Rick also picked Suarez and Southampton’s Adam Lallana (10 points) to help him win the US$20 phone voucher and T-shirt from Cellcard.

Gameweek 24 fills out the long weekend with ten fixtures including the Monday night headliner between table toppers Man City and title chasers Chelsea.
