Kane heroics release Roberts’ Modern Slaves

Kane heroics release Roberts’ Modern Slaves

The Premier League returned to high-scoring ways at the weekend, and even Manchester United’s Juan Mata couldn’t top the Fantasy Football charts with his brace against Liverpool – one a spectacular volley.

Chelsea kept their lead at the top of the Premier League to six points with a 3-2 win against a battling Hull, while Manchester City steadied their ship with a 3-0 crushing of West Brom.

But none of these goalfests eclipsed Tottenham’s 4-3 tear-up with Leicester and this week’s Star Man Harry Kane, who looks certain to be rewarded for his scoring exploits with a first England cap against Lithuania tonight.

Another star man to be justly rewarded for his undoubted skills this week is Jason Roberts (surely not the former Blackburn Rovers striker), manager of the – we’re guessing ironically named – Modern Slaves, Gameweek 30’s top side, who receives the Cellcard plunder of $20 phone credit.

Roberts had Arsenal hitman Olivier Giroud as captain for a doubled 26 points, that man Kane for 17 and a Southampton duo, defenders Ryan Bertrand and Nathaniel Clyne for 12 and 11 points respectively.

Other notable Dream Teamers were, of course, United’s Mata with 12 points and Manchester City’s Brazilian midfielder (oh) Fernando with 14 for scoring one and laying on an assist

Seyha Titi won the Cellcard Facebook competition by correctly predicting it would be Mata who would break the deadlock in the Liverpool-United cross-county derby.

The Premier League takes a break for the small matter of European Championship qualification, but it will be back on the weekend of April 4, with the standout tie being Arsenal versus Liverpool on the Saturday.
