Horng Sak snubs change to win fantasy gameweek

Some extremely rich pickings were to be found in the Cellcard Fantasy League during gameweek 25, none less so than Chelsea’s masterful midfielder Eden Hazard.

The 23-year-old Belgian midfielder, who was hailed by his manager Jose Mourinho the previous week as “the best young player in the world”, netted all three of his side’s goals against Newcastle on Saturday to rack up a sensational 21 points.

Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel was also a welcome inclusion in any fantasy manager’s squad, with the veteran Slovak bagging a brace during their 5-1 humbling of Arsenal to amass 17 points.

West Ham attacking midfielder Kevin Nolan notched up 16 points for the second successive week thanks to another double-scoring performance, while Liverpool’s Raheem Sterling and Swansea’s Wayne Routledge both yielded 14 points for netting twice or a goal and assist respectively.

Some high tallies were recorded in the weekly competition, with two teams topping the charts with 93 points. However, Horng Sak’s HS-Chinglong emerged champion due to less transfers than Ollie L’s Down the Flanks FC.

In fact, Sak’s policy of ignoring all transfer opportunities since gameweek 5 proved decisive, with selections of Hazard, Sterling and Routledge on top of a captain’s choice of Man United’s Robin van Persie for 12 points.
