Hutchinson breaks ton barrier with win

Manchester United emphatically wrapped up their 20th league title on the concluding day of Gameweek 34, and there were some expectedly high scores in the CC/PPP/CTN Fantasy League as manager favourite Robin van Persie notched a sublime hat-trick past Aston Villa.

The Flying Dutchman, on course for his second successive highest fantasy points total of the season thanks to his league leading 24 goals tally, was a captain’s pick for many, including our weekly winner James Hutchinson with his side 10 Point Deduction.

Thirty-four of James’s 107 points were granted for giving Van Persie the armband, with the team also including star midfielder Gareth Bale of Tottenham for 13 points as well as Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge (10) and West Ham defender Joey O’Brien (10).

Interestingly, James drop-ped nine points with his decision to switch Arsenal’s Per Mertesacker, who collected 15 points for his game-winning goal, with fellow Arsenal full-back Bacary Sagna the previous gameweek.

Hutchinson picks up the $20 phone voucher and T-shirt from sponsors Cellcard for his wise selections.

On to Gameweek 35, and the relegation battle reaches fever pitch with Reading taking on QPR on Sunday. Of the three sides grappling for the remaining two spots in the UEFA Champions League next season, Arsenal face the toughest task this weekend against champions Manchester United.
