Honours shared as Suarez strikes again

The intensity simply couldn’t last in the Cellcard Fantasy League, with gameweek 15 over the long weekend yielding less than impressive tallies.

Nearly half of all managers have selected Liverpool’s red-hot striker Luis Suarez in their squads, and why not considering he can’t seem to stop finding the net. Another goal and two assists against West Ham granted the Uruguayan 15 points to usurp Man City forward Sergio Aguero in the season’s charts with a 144-point total – quite an achievement considering he was suspended for the first five games.

Chelsea’s new recruit Andre Schurrle equalled Suarez’ 15 points thanks to his magnificent double at Stoke. However, the German midfielder’s pedestrian record so far this campaign (just 23 points before the weekend) meant less than 1 per cent of managers had forked out for him.

Norwich’s Leroy Fer, meanwhile, was great value with a goal and assist for 14 points.

It comes as no surprise, perhaps, that the top teams of the round all featured Suarez as captain for 30 points. Rick Dubbeldam’s Bayonitis was looking pretty with 80 points, but his clumsy transfer policy of five swaps meant his team was voided from collecting prizes. Instead, the Cellcard spoils slipped down to the two runners-up – Haing Eng’s Redstar3 and Sok Chann Socheath’s iCambodia – who both amassed 77 points with two transfers.

The two sides also boasted Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil for 10 points. They will each collect a $10 phone voucher and a T-shirt.
