Eat Your Way Out chomps to top

It was back to ballistics for the Premier League over the weekend as high-firing clashes lit up the accompanying CC/PPP/CTN Fantasy League.

No less than four players bagged braces during Gameweek 15, although only one did so from midfield.

Swansea’s Miguel Michu is widely regarded as the best buy of the season so far, with the Spaniard netting his league-leading ninth and tenth goals against a defused Arsenal on Saturday to collect 16 fantasy points.

With 95 points to date, Michu is now just one away from top man Robin van Persie of Man United, having started the campaign valued at exactly half of the Dutchman’s £13 million.  

Equalling the 16 points of Michu was Man United’s Wayne Rooney, whose striker status meant his double amassed fewer points but made up the difference with an assist.

Newcastle’s Demba Ba and Tottenham’s Jermain Defoe also got their names on the scoresheets twice to pick up 13 points apiece.

Liverpool defender Daniel Agger scored once and kept things tidy at the back to earn 15 points.

Gameweek 15 satiated the hunger of many a point-starved manager, none more so than winner Andrew Oliver-Smith with his team Eat Your Way Out.

Andrew’s tasty tally of 90 points was cooked up from such prize cuts as captain choice Rooney for 32 points and the mouth-watering Michu.

Stoke’s delectable goalkeeper Asmir Begovic added to the stock with nine points thanks to his six-save clean sheet performance against West Brom.

As he is currently based in Nairobi, Kenya, Andrew’s weekly spoils of a $20 phone voucher and T-shirt from sponsors Cellcard will be snapped up by his Cambodian benefactor.

Fixtures from the upcoming Gameweek 16 this weekend will be eclipsed by just one, Sunday’s monster showdown between Manchester nemeses City and United.

However, it is worth noting that both Sunderland and Reading will enjoy double-headers.
