Suarez puts Nak Puthea in Heaven

Having inked a new long-term contract last week with Liverpool, Suarez took the club to the top of the table with two stunning strikes and an assist in a dazzling first half against Cardiff. His 16 points was easily the best of the Dream team and he’ll celebrate Christmas with a 35-point advantage over his nearest rival in the overall charts, Sergio Aguero of Man City.

Meanwhile, Tottenham’s Emmanuel Adebayor returned to favour in the first team with a match-winning brace for 13 points.

The weekly competition was another high scoring battle, with quite a few managing to pass the century mark. However, with numerous unregistered members, the Cellcard goodies of a US$20 phone voucher and T-shirt fell to Nak Puthea with his team Heaven FC on 103 points.

Puthea had Suarez as captain for 32 points, but also fielded Stoke’s Peter Crouch and Southampton Adam Lallana for 12 each.

Gameweek 18 encompasses the traditional Boxing Day fixtures, with 10 ties scheduled for tomorrow.
