Chansothea strikes again in gameweek

The second gameweek of the latest Premier League season saw some inspiring recent recruits of newly promoted clubs gain some prominence in the PPP/CTN Fantasy League. Swansea’s Dutch keeper Michel Vorm, Norwich’s Belgian defender Ritchie De Laet and QPR’s home-grown striker Tommy Smith all grabbed Dream Team berths to make a mockery of their meagre price tags.

Some familiar names also appeared in the elite squad, with Newcastle defender Ryan Taylor, Wolves midfield-er Matthew Jarvis and Aston Villa hitman Darren Bent all top-performing for a dozen points apiece.

It was bound to happen some time, but Chhea Chansothea, with his myriad fantasy league teams, scored an early triumph with the best total of the week.

Under the manager moniker of Baggio Kim, Chansothea’s Bekchan Empire FC – which won gameweek 26 last season – amassed 75 points to claim the phone voucher/internet dongle prize from sponsor Cellcard.

His side benefited largely from handing Bent the captain’s armband for 24 points, while the Dream picks of Man City’s David Silva, Jarvis and Taylor also provided copious contributions.

Gameweek 3 is a straight-up weekend affair with a transfer deadline of 5:30pm on Saturday.
