Aston Memot win once more for gameweek glory

Further upsets for the mighty Manchester sides and a draw between bitter London rivals Tottenham and Chelsea meant high-flying Arsenal remained top of the table, two points above the impressive Liverpool. Could the end of Ferguson’s epic era finally signify a changing of the guard?

While finalised results are what counts for teams in the Premier League, its goals and assists that do the most damage in the Cellcard Fantasy League.

Gameweek 6 was no exception, with Everton’s ballistic Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku richly deserving pick of the round for his match-winning brace and assist against Newcastle on Monday night.

Lukaku notched up 16 points, two more than his closest Dream team ally Daniel Sturridge of Liverpool, who scored one and set up two more at crisis-hit Sunderland.

Meanwhile, Sturridge’s strike partner Luis Suarez was back to what he does best, eating up goals with a double in the same game to collect 13 points, which was equalled by Arsenal’s unstoppable Aaron Ramsey thanks to his goal and assist from midfield.

The weekly competition was won by a familiar name, Nith Poch, and her side Aston Memot with 80 points.

Bringing in Ramsey for the round was a masterstroke along with Man United’s Wayne Rooney as captain for 16 points. Nith also fielded Hull’s goalscoring midfielder Robbie Brady for 11 points to seal the win and earn a $20 phone voucher and T-shirt from sponsors Cellcard.

Over in the affiliated Facebook competition (www.facebook.com/Cellcard.Fantasy), three users correctly guessed that Tottenham’s Gylffi Sigurdsson would score from open play in the match against Chelsea.

Vicheth Phath was drawn out as the lucky winner of the $10 phone voucher prize.

Next week’s question is: Who will score first in the game between Everton and Man City? You are also given the following five options on how the goal will be scored: By head, by penalty, by free-kick, by regular play or by own goal.

Entries must be made before the start of play (6:45pm Cambodian time on Saturday) so guesses must be made before then. It is the opening fixture of 10 to be played in gameweek 7, which fit inside the two-day weekend.
