Kazzurri FC sneaks gameweek 5 victory

Gameweek 5 of the CC/PPP/CTN Fantasy League went to show that sometimes the best form of attack is defence, with decisive strikes produced by back-line bastions.

Defender Ashley Cole snatched a late winner for Chelsea to send them clear of the chasing pack in the Premier League, his lone goal in the 85th minute accounting for his commanding tally of 15 fantasy points.

Meanwhile, Southampton’s Rickie Lambert helped the struggling league newcomers clinch their first points of the campaign. A brace for the 30-year-old English forward converted into 13 points.

Interestingly, Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini was the only player in the Dream team to register both a goal and an assist to amass 12 points.

The weekly spoils, sponsored by Cellcard, fell to Totti Chhea with his team Kazzurri FC. Despite his total of 76 points being matched by Rolling Legend’s Roller Seven, Chhea’s quotient of transfers (two compared to Rolling’s four) granted him the prizes of a $20 phone card and a Cellcard T-shirt.

Chhea benefited from fielding Jermain Defoe as captain for 16 points, while strong picks of Cole and Lescott (11) set him on the path to glory.

Gameweek 6 is set across the coming weekend and features another host of mouth-watering clashes, including a London blockbuster between Arsenal and Chelsea, and Man United welcoming Tottenham to the Theatre of Dreams.
