With gameweeks squeezed into the tightest of time spaces as we near a thrilling conclusion to the Premier League season, gameweek 33 of the PPP/CTN Fantasy League was gone last week but not forgotten.

Man City took full advantage of a slip up by cross town and title rivals United with a 4-0 walloping of West Brom.

A double-double of goals and assists by frontman Sergio ‘Kun’ Aguero yielded a superlative 19 points to make the Argentinean the most prized possession for a fantasy manager during the gameweek.

Another 4-0 rout coming from Everton over Sunderland produced three more Dream team alumni, with French striker Magaya Gueye grabbing headlines with his goal and two assists for 15 points, while midfield colleagues Leon Osman (13) and Steven Pienaar (12) joined in the elitism.

Liverpool’s Maxi Rodriguez scored a brace to earn 14 points and Arsenal’s Theo Walcott netted one and set up another to take home 13 points.

In the gameweek standings, Kun Yuthona finally came good with his loftily named team The Lord to take the spoils with a total of 95 points.

The heaven-sent squad including a saintly selection of Aguero as captain for 38 points, as Walcott, Robin van Persie (12) and Clint Dempsey (10) also made telling contributions.

Yuthona finds on his collection plate either an internet dongle or US$20 phone voucher as well as a T-shirt from sponsors Cellcard.

Last night saw the wrap up of the six-match gameweek 34, so watch out for the latest winner in the pages of the Post.
