Mony Liverpool cashes in on low gameweek

If last week’s top points grabber in the Cellcard Fantasy League wasn’t surprising enough, this week’s star performance came from an even unlikelier player.

West Brom’s Graham Dorran featured in just one in 1,000 managers’ team sheets – unsurprising considering he’d mustered just seven goals and as many assists in the past five seasons with the club.

However, the 27-year-old Scottish midfielder thrust himself into the limelight on Sunday during the Baggies’ 4-0 hammering of newly promoted Burnley thanks to a goal and two assists to yield a peerless 16 fantasy points.

Chelsea’s Brazilian winger Willian grabbed a goal and set up another in their 3-0 victory over Aston Villa to collect 14 points, while Man City’s brace-bagging Bosnian striker Edin Dzeko and West Brom’s goal scoring defender Craig Dawson notched up 13 points.

Gameweek 6 was clinched in stunning fashion by Liverpool.KH FC on 77 points. Managed by Mony Liverpool, the side boasted Reds stalwart Steven Gerrard for 9 points but made the most of Dzeko as captain for 26.

West Brom forward Saido Berahino (12) and Chelsea fullback Cesar Azpilicueta (11) were also important members of Mony’s lineup to help him win the $20 phone card from prize sponsors Cellcard. Liverpool.KH FC was 15 points clear of the nearest challenger.

Another $20 phone card (due to a rollover week) was claimed by Facebook user Odom Nhean after he correctly guessed that a total of 26 goals would be netted during the round and that the game between Hull and Man City would see the highest scoreline.

Gameweek 7 this coming weekend offers up a mouthwatering clash between Chelsea and Arsenal on Sunday, as well as a meeting of two league newcomers, Leicester and Burnley, and a London derby in West Ham versus QPR.
