Man Utd Win for the win in gameweek 36

Man Utd Win for the win in gameweek 36

Just two rounds left of the Cellcard Fantasy League campaign, and things remain supremely tense for clubs at both the head and foot of the table.

Gameweek 36 was one to savour for the reds of Arsenal, Man United and Southampton, but not for Liverpool, who were frustrated into submission by title rivals Chelsea.

Sunderland, meanwhile, were thrown a lifeline in their pursuit of Premier League football next season with Connor Wickman once again supplying the firepower.

The 21-year-old English striker scored twice and assisted another in their 4-0 demolition of relegation buddies Cardiff to amass 16 points.

This total was equalled by Swansea midfielder Jonjo Shelvey, who netted one and set up two more against Aston Villa.

Top of the weekly team charts was Prethbotr Chan with his team Man Utd Win on 84 points. Chan unsurprisingly made full use of two Dream teamers from the Red Devils – Wayne Rooney as captain for 26 points and Juan Mata (13 points).

Shelvey and Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny (7) also made up for Chan’s defensive pick of Everton’s Seamus Coleman (-1), as he scooped the Cellcard prize of a US$20 phone card and T-shirt.

In the overall standings, Sabina Lawreniuk’s Why always me? has just a 16-point advantage over second-placed Matt Culis with PPFC.

Gameweek 37 crams in 13 fixtures running from Saturday to next Wednesday. Man United, Sunderland, Hull and West Brom all have double-headers.
