ChoeunGroup clubs together the best total

A distinct lack of fireworks by the big guns of the Premier League saw a notable rise to prominence of some lesser known talents as mainly mediocre totals were tabled in gameweek 5 of the PPP/CTN Fantasy League.

Newly promoted sides are always worth a look for those bargain gems, and Welsh arrivals Swansea sported no less than three players in this week’s Dream team.

However, the richest pickings came from Sunderland after they destroyed Stoke 4-0 at home.

Swedish midfield master Sebastian Larsson, who signed from Championship-bound Birmingham over the summer, showed why he was so highly rated last season with a goal and two assists to yield 13 points and MVP status. Team-mate Titus Bramble, who price tag of £4.4 million makes him an absolute steal for fantasy managers, grabbed a goal of his own to take 12 points.

Fantasy favourites Nani and Sergio Aguero of rival Manchester clubs made appearances again in the elite eleven with 10 points a piece, while Blackburn’s Ayegbeni Yakubu also earned 10 points after netting a brace against a pityful Arsenal.

Our weekly winner was Pisey Seng with his team ChoeunGroup on 64 points. Pisey collects his choice of either a US$20 phone card or internet dongle along with a T-shirt from sponsors Cellcard.

Individuals in the triumphant ChoeunGroup included Aguero as captain for 20 points as well as the class of Larsson, and Pisey could even afford to field Arsenal’s Laurent Koscielny, who subtracted 2 points via his own goal and four conceded.

Gameweek 6 has the usual Saturday transfer deadline of 5:30pm.
