Albion’s Myhill reaches summit as Mao takes control

Albion’s Myhill reaches summit as Mao takes control

Once again this week, the action in the Premier League was down in the basement as Leicester City moved closer to securing themselves the dictionary definition of “valiant” and top-flight football with their fifth win in six games over a Newcastle United side who seem to be doing their best to remain as recently pointless as Paris Hilton at the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight.

West Brom continued their run to avoid the drop with a courageous 1-0 win against Manchester United at Old Trafford. Hull, on the other hand, couldn’t match Albion’s upset, going down 3-1 to Arsenal and, as is the see-saw nature of this relegation scrap, find themselves back well in the melee despite last week’s heroics.

Oh, did we mention that Chelsea won the title on Sunday with a 1-0 win at home to Palace?

It’s not often that a goalkeeper is the Fantasy Football Star Man but West Brom’s Boaz Myhill (pictured, AFP) can feel extra satisfied after a string of fine saves, including one from a Robin van Persie penalty, saw him keep a clean sheet and become just that with 17 points.

Other notable Dream Teamers were Arsenal midfielder Alexis Sanchez with 15 points for bagging a brace, Sunderland midfielder Jordi Gomez who matched that and West Brom defender Jonas Olsson who accrued 14 points for a goal and a clean sheet.

Socheat Mao, manager of Socheat FC79, deservedly collects $20 Cellcard phone credit after amassing a mighty 87 points. Mao had Sanchez as captain for 30 points and two other Dream Teamers, Philippe Coutinho of Liverpool and Leonardo Ulloa of Leicester, both with 13.

In our Facebook competition, Ratana Chhor was closest when asked which player would total the most points from the Tottenham-Manchester City game. Chhor predicted that City keeper Joe Hart would do so to win the rollover $10 voucher from Cellcard.

Gameweek 36 will be played this weekend and the biggest game sees newly crowned champions Chelsea take on Liverpool at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
