Barcelonam has all the luck in gameweek 13

The Premier League produced yet another explosive round of fixtures over the weekend, with just two games failing to yield less than three goals.

Everton’s 4-0 rout of Stoke was the most one-sided, although it was Man City’s 3-0 smashing of Swansea that included the gameweek’s peak performance.

Midfield maestro Samir Nasri has been steadily picking up points throughout the season, largely overshadowed by his striker colleague Sergio Aguero.

However, the Frenchman took the spotlight this time out, netting twice and bagging the bonus to tally up 16 points.

Aaron Ramsey played a similar role for Arsenal against Cardiff but succumbed to a yellow card, which knocked him back a point to 15.

Everton middle-man Bryan Oviedo was a rare selection for fantasy managers but turned a few heads with a goal and assist to amass 14 points.

While Gameweek 13 may have been unlucky for some, others boasted great fortunes with Quoc Nam Bui’s Barcelonam notching up an outstanding 110 points to win the weekly spoils by a massive margin.

Quoc had Man United’s Wayne Rooney as captain to collect 26 points, and also cashed in on Dream teamers Ramsey, Everton’s Seamus Coleman (13), Man City’s Pablo Zabaleta (11) and Chelsea’s John Terry (11).

Quoc will receive a $20 phone voucher and T-shirt from sponsors Cellcard.

Gameweek 14 kicks off tonight and wraps up Wednesday, so get those transfers done sharpish.

Over in the Cellcard Facebook Fanpage competition, the prize is set to rollover for the second successive week after another obscure answer to the posed question. In the Tottenham v Man United game, Spurs defender Kyle Walker opened the scoring with an 18th-minute strike.

Understandably, no one guessed the first scorer and time correctly, so the next question will be worth $30 in phone vouchers.
