As expected, gameweek 23 of the CC/PPP/CTN Fantasy League had Arsenal boys as the top picks thanks to the Gunners’ extra fixture playing their postponed Boxing Day match against West Ham.

MVP Theo Walcott on 18 points was joined by midfield colleague Santi Cazorla (12 points), as well as strikers Olivier Giroud (15) and Lukas Podolski (17).  

David Silva netted both of Man City’s goals against Fulham to be awarded 16 points and a spot in the Dream team.

The top of the overall standings saw teams leapfrog the former leaders with huge points hauls.

Torres Seng’s The Whites FC shot to the summit with 102 points, while Glenn Press’s Walkabout Jokers captured second place thanks to an  impressive 107 points total.

However, the weekly spoils go to Ung Chamroeun — brother of the previous gameweek winner, Ung Chamrong — with his team Roubroum United on 110 points.

The former sports reporter for the Phnom Penh Post picks up the $20 phone voucher and T-shirt from sponsors Cellcard after outclassing everyone without the use of a single transfer.

Making the perfect choice of Walcott as captain as well as starting Cazorla and Podolski, Chamroeun also included Liverpool’s Luiz Suarez and Chelsea’s Frank Lampard for nine points a piece to push him past the winning post.

Managers across the Kingdom are looking forward to another round of great match-ups in the coming gameweek, including the classic clash between Arsenal and Liverpool.

Those still looking to make adjustments to their teams will have to do so by 2:30am Cambodian time tomorrow night.
