Sir WatGuson soaks up gameweek glory

With 15 fixtures producing an average of just under four goals per game, there was always going to be a lot to like about gameweek 31.

The round’s MVP was Man City’s Yaya Toure, who notched a hat-trick in his first game against Fulham, another goal in his second against Man United, two clean sheets and five bonus points to bring home a sensational 31 points.

The Ivorian midfielder’s tally may never be beaten, with 45 per cent of fantasy managers enjoying his exploits.

Liverpool’s Luis Suarez, meanwhile, also netted a triple in one of his games and provided an assist in each of his games to amass 25 points. The Uruguayan striker remains the only individual to pass the 200-mark for the season, and he’s currently a whole 64 points better than his nearest rivals, Toure and Eden Hazard of Chelsea.

Over in the weekly competition, an expectedly high score was what was needed to take the title. Sir WatGuson with his team Ero-Sanin FC grabbed an outstanding 184 points to do just that.

WatGuson’s choice of Suarez as captain for 50 points had his side in good shape, but his other squad selections of Toure, Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge (18 points), Everton’s Romelu Lukaku (18) and Man City keeper Joe Hart (13) were what really made the difference.

Cellcard goodies of a $20 phone voucher and a T-shirt will find their way to the WatGuson realm soon.

The Facebook question proved to be too difficult to answer again, with no one able to correctly guess that Chelsea would wallop fellow title chasers Arsenal 6-0. Thus the $10 phone voucher prize rolls over to next week.

Gameweek 32 returns to relative normality with all 20 teams in action just the once each. Arsenal v Man City on Saturday night and Liverpool v Tottenham on Sunday are the standout fixtures of the round.
