Cameron Strong powers to another Fantasy win

Big midweek wins for Liverpool, Chelsea and Man City grabbed the headlines in Gameweek 14 of the Cellcard Fantasy League, while a certain Argentinean striking sensation continued his trailblazing form this season.

Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero surged further ahead at the top of the individual points chart with a commanding performance away to Sunderland.

The 26-year-old’s two goals, assist and three-point bonus helped him to 16 points for the round, and saw him become the first player this campaign to reach triple figures. He now stands nine clear of closest rival Alexis Sanchez of Arsenal on 104 points overall.

Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta, meanwhile, was in dominant mood against Spurs, securing a clean sheet, assist and bonus three for a total of 12.

In the weekly contest, an early front runner for the overall title has emerged in Cameron Strong with his team CaptHun Sensible, currently top of the standings. Having already triumphed in Gameweek 9, Strong’s squad surged to the summit once again with an imposing tally of 91.

The score was mainly down to having Aguero as captain for a doubled-up 32 points, while Azpilicueta also featured in the stellar line up. Strong collects US$20 phone credit from sponsors Cellcard for his efforts.

The Cellcard Fantasy Facebook page was lit up by another testing question asking for the final score of the game between Chelsea and Spurs as well as the bonus three winner.

No fewer than 10 users correctly stated that Chelsea would hammer their cross-town rivals 3-0, although nobody also picked Azpilicueta as the star man. Drogba was also snubbed, but four users named Eden Hazard, who earned a one-point bonus.

Therefore, Arona Bay, Soravuth Royce, Yano Kuy and Ratana Chhor take an even share of the $10 phone credit on offer.

Gameweek 15 over the long weekend serves up some more tantalising action in the Premier League, with a relegation dogfight between QPR and Burnley tomorrow and a top four clash between Southampton and Man United wrapping things up on Monday night.
