Dangerous Devil triumphs

Gameweek 32 couldn’t match up to the extremities of the previous round, but there were still some enthralling performances to capitalise on in the Cellcard Fantasy League.

Routs from Man United, Swansea, Southampton and new table-toppers Liverpool helped provide the majority of players for the Dream team, although the blockbuster clash between Arsenal and Man City failed to live up to the hype in terms of individual brilliance.

Top pick of the week was Swansea’s Jonathan de Guzman, who bagged a brace, clean sheet and bonus for 16 points. The Dutch midfielder has had a steady but unremarkable season, and is unsurprisingly not a popular choice for fantasy managers.

Meanwhile, England strikers Jay Rodriguez of Southampton and Wayne Rooney of Man United were both on target in notching doubles in the respective games for 13 points each.

The weekly spoils from Cellcard of a US$20 phone voucher and T-shirt were deservedly won by Ou Veasna’s Dangerous Devil notching up 90 points.

Veasna fielded the unstoppable Luiz Suarez of Liverpool as his captain for 18 points, while Rodriguez and team-mate Rickie Lambert (12 points) and Man United’s Juan Mata (12) were also admirable additions.

A full card of fixtures plays out again this coming weekend in gameweek 33 with perhaps the Everton v Arsenal grabbing the spotlight as vital for both teams in the race for a Champions League berth next year.

West Brom v Norwich and Cardiff v Crystal Palace are also must win ties for the teams in the battle for Premier League survival.
