The weekend will probably be best remembered as the one when Fernando Torres confirmed Liverpool’s resurrection, although the Spaniard’s game-winning brace past the champions on Sunday did not see him leads the ranks in the gameweek 11 dream team. Prize possession in PPP/CTN Fantasy league was Bolton’s unstoppable Kevin Davies, who scored twice and assisted another to net 16 points for managers.

Another top pick was Man United’s man-of-the-hour Park Ji-Sung, whose double heroics against Wolves earned managers 15 points, while Sunderland’s World Cup marquee signing Asamoah Gyan was yet another brace-bagger and yielded 13 points.

Despite 122 points on offer from the dream team, our fantasy league selectors struggled to string together the most profitable lineups. The best tally came from Sambo Chhour’s Great Stones FC, who rolled away to victory with 66 points. Sambo’s picked Fulham’s Brede Hangeland as his rock at the back for 11 points, while a captain’s choice of Torres proved essential for 24 points. Sambo collects the US$20 phone voucher and T-shirt from sponsors Cellcard as our weekly winner.

With Premier League games cluttering the midweek for the first time this season, you’ll need to make your squad decisions by 2:30am tonight ahead of the start of the two-day long gameweek 12. Gameweek 13 then follows as a normal weekend schedule.
