Mane delights Aizhan with Villa hat-trick

Cellcard Fantasy Football Gameweek 37 finished on Wednesday night with Sunderland securing Premier League safety after a gutsy 0-0 draw at Arsenal. Villa, clearly with one eye on their FA Cup final date with the Gunners on May 30, were pummelled 6-1 by Southampton, which saw Saints’ Senegalese midfielder Sadio Mane keep the match ball and be crowned the week’s Star Man as his hat-trick and assist netted him 23 points.

Aizhan Zhukeyeva who takes the penultimate $20 Cellcard phone voucher of the season, cleverly had Mane in their Spear Attack side, along with Dream Teamers Mezut Ozil of Arsenal as captain for 10 points and Sunderland defender Patrick van Aanholt with two clean sheets in the Black Cats two games for 15 points.

Other notable Dream Teamers were Southampton striker Shane Long with 18 points for bagging a brace and supplying two assists, and Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure with 15 points for scoring twice and keeping a clean sheet.

Rithya Kimsour and Tra Mc both correctly predicted that Ander Herrera would score first in Manchester United’s game against Arsenal on Sunday to win $5 Cellcard phone credit each.

The final gameweek of the season will take place over the course of 90-odd minutes from 9pm Cambodian time on Sunday, and Hull and Newcastle will either experience heartbreak or joyous relief in their last-day relegation nailbiters against Manchester United and West Ham respectively.

Dominic Field, manager of Ych-y-fi and our Fantasy Football League halfway winner of an Alcatel C9 smarthone – worth around $200 and with a $60 SIM card – is looking set to resemble a man of questionable income as another one seems almost certain to wind its way to him as he holds a seemingly uncatchable 119-point lead at the league’s summit.

Mark Pastro of Snapperheads in second may have to settle for an Alcatel mini and $60 SIM, but, as Newcastle and West Ham fans will attest, there is always hope in football until the final whistle is blown on Sunday.
