Devil Utd rules over hellish week for Reds


The extended nature of gameweek 22 had fantasy league managers eagerly awaiting the result of Wednesday night’s Liverpool v Blackburn clash.

Those who thought picking Reds players would double up with their double fixtures were sadly mistaken as they slumped to yet another defeat against the Tangerines. DJ Campbell scored the winning goal and earned himself a place in the Dream team on 12 points.

Meanwhile, Newcastle’s Leon Best lived up to his name with a sensational hat-trick against West Ham to lift him to 17 points for the week. You’d be forgiven for not fielding the Irish international, as he’s only played twice this season, but top marks obviously if you did.  

The week’s other 17-point perfectionist was Fulham Simon Davies, who scored once and set up two more during a commanding performance from midfield against West Brom.

Two other players thrived for 13 points a piece and a spot amongst the week's elite. Sunderland's Phillip Bardsley and Newcastle's Kevin Nolan both netted to notch impressive tallies for managers.

PPP/CTN Fantasy League winner of the week was familiar manager Ou Veasna, found success with his side Devil United. Veasna’s 78 points featured contributions from the magical Nani of Man United as captain for 24 points, while Blackpool’s Charlie Adam (8) and Gary Taylor-Fletcher (11) also served him well.

Veasna collects the US$20 phone voucher and T-shirt from sponsors Cellcard.

Gameweek 23 fits snuggly inside this weekend, with no less than four dastardly local derbys to make the mouth water. But will the fiery fixtures turn your player picks into points?

Managers should be aware that they have one wildcard to play between now and February 12, which allows an extra transfer during a gameweek without incurring a points deduction.

So make your squad selections for this week before 6:30pm tomorrow and sit back to watch the action unfurl.
