SpearAttack hits top target in gameweek

Gameweek 12 of the Cellcard Fantasy League was relatively forgettable, except of course for Arsenal and Liverpool fans who saw their teams slump to demoralising defeats.

As a mark of how pedestrian the round was, the top tally was just 13 points and came from Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen.

The 22-year-old from Denmark scored one and set up Spurs’ other against Hull to amply reward his Fantasy backers.

Meanwhile, two strikers managed to amass 12 points each – Burnley’s brace-scoring match-winner Danny Ings and Crystal Palace’s Dwight Gayle, who netted one and assisted another.

Chelsea’s Eden Hazard (11 points) was not only the sole Dream team player to also feature in the elite 11 of the season so far but also the only player in the gameweek hailing from a club in the top four.

In the weekly competition, scores were understandably subdued although the winner was no stranger to Cellcard Fantasy League glory having racked up gameweek triumphs from numerous past campaigns.

Aizhan Zhukeyeva’s team SpearAttack thrust itself to the peak of the charts with 78 points, five clear of the nearest rival, to pin down the prize of US$20 phone credit.

Aizhan had Hazard as captain for 22 points, and also fielded the likes of Eriksen and Newcastle keeper Tim Krul (nine points).

The Facebook contest for Gameweek 12’s rollover bonus of $20 phone credit was well fought over, with no fewer than 21 users correctly guessing that Wayne Rooney would be the top points grabber from Man United’s game against Arsenal.

However, only David Uy was spot on with his tiebreaker answer of nine points for Rooney to scoop up the Cellcard spoils.

Gameweek 13 unfolds this weekend and includes a top of the table clash in Southampton v Man City and a relegation dogfight in QPR v Leicester.
