When the total points of the Dream team is a mere 112, you know the gameweek has failed to produce many fireworks.

The 21st instalment of the PPP/CTN Fantasy League competition seemed to reflect the sullen mood of some Premier League clubs, who lost top stars to preparations for this weekend’s start of the Africa Cup of Nations tournament.

With the entire crop of frontmen unable to bag double points, the  rewards were richest coming from the midpark.

Swansea’s Nathan Dyer and Blackburn’s David Dunn shared the MVP mantle, both achieving their 13-points tallies thanks to a goal and assist plus the 3-point bonus for best performance.

Newcastle’s Ryan Taylor, an absolute steal of a player priced at just £5.3 million, continued his impressive season with a clean sheet and assist for 12 fantasy points.

Man United’s Michael Carrick also grabbed a rare piece of the limelight with a goal and clean sheet for 11 points.

Our weekly winner struck one for the provinces, as Petter Jonh’s team Kratie Town collected 77 points to head the list. Jonh’s premier picks included Dream teamers Dyer, Taylor and Liverpool’s Sanchez Jose Enrique (9 points), while captain Robin van Persie added a dozen points to his triumphant total.

Petter Jonh will claim his choice of either an internet dongle or US$20 phone card, as well as a T-shirt, from sponsor Cellcard.  

Gameweek 22 fits neatly into the two-day weekend, with the transfer deadline set at the standard 6:30pm on Saturday.

A Super Sunday awaits, with the titanic clashes of Man City v Spurs and Arsenal v Man United.
