Khmer Empire rule over gameweek 25

Another feisty weekend of PPP/CTN Fantasy League fixtures featuring two five-star performances from Tottenham and West Brom.

Despite the Baggies’ Russian-born Nigerian striker Peter Odemwingie grabbing the gameweek’s top haul of three goals against Back Country rivals Wolves, the MVP honours instead went to the sublime Spurs supplier Emmanuel Adebayor.  

The Togolese tormentor had his hand in all of Tottenham’s unanswered five goals against Newcastle, scoring one and setting up the rest to amass a highly respectable 21 fantasy points.

Odemwingie received 17 points for his heroic hat-trick.

Louis Saha, in his first start for Spurs, netted twice and assisted another to earn 15 points, while Man City defender Joleon Lescott notched the match winner over Aston Villa to also collect 15 points.

Our weekly winner was the dominant Tola An with his side Khmer Empire.

Tola’s 84 points edged him clear of pack, with exactly half of the total down to an inspired pick of Adebayor as captain.

Tola’s squad had Spurs’ lucrative left back Benoit Assou-Ekotto for 13 points as his only other Dream team inductee.

He will take his choice of an internet dongle or US$20 phone voucher as well as a T-shirt as the prize from sponsors Cellcard.

With the FA Cup eclipsing league action this weekend, gameweek 26 will kick off on February 25, so hang tight until then.
