Wilkie races away with win

Races for the title and for survival carry on at tremendous velocity in the English Premier League, while battles in the Cellcard Fantasy League are also hotly contested.

High-scoring affairs at both Arsenal and Liverpool yielded the top performers of the gameweek, with strikers Olivier Giroud and Daniel Sturridge securing identical 16-point tallies thanks to a brace and an assist each in their games against Sunderland and Swansea respectively.

Meanwhile, defensive stalwarts John Terry of Chelsea and Patrice Evra of Man United were also prized possessions of fantasy league managers with 15 points a piece. Both kept clean sheets, but Terry scored the decisive goal in their 1-0 win over Everton and Evra set up both of United’s goals past Crystal Palace.

Over in the weekly competition, Cambodian national rugby team import Luke Wilkie successfully switched codes to claim the top spot with his team Stevie McCools XI on
103 points.

Wilkie was the only centurion of the round, doing so with Sturridge as captain for 32 points as well as Giroud, Arsenal’s Laurent Koscielny (13) and West Ham’s Kevin Nolan (12).

The Cellcard goodies of a $20 phone voucher and T-shirt wings its way to Wilkie.

Meanwhile, a $10 phone voucher is bound for Phyrun SosengMao, who won the lucky draw of Cellcard’s Facebook contest after he and three other users correctly guessed that Daniel Sturridge would be topping the charts with 16 points.

Gameweek 28 this coming weekend is missing two fixtures, with Man City and Sunderland contesting the League Cup final on Sunday and Man United v West Brom shuffled back due to previous postponements.
