The weekend’s action from the Premier League saw Man City strengthen their stranglehold of the top spot while Liverpool notched a morale boosting win over Chelsea. However, a lack of high scores amongst midfielders kept things relatively tepid in the PPP/CTN Fantasy League.

While three strikers grabbed braces to yield points totals of 13 each, it was a ballsy backliner who claimed the MVP honours.

Man City’s man mountain Micah Richards put in a star performance worthy of any Dream team, scoring one and setting up another to put an end to Newcastle’s unbeaten start to the season. The 23-year-old Englishman collected 14 points for his considerable efforts.

Other elite members of note included the Everton pairing of Leighton Baines (12) and Phil Jagielka (11), who both produced goals despite bearing labels as defenders.

The weekly spoils were bestowed upon Ritchie Munro with his team Crambodia. An 85 points tally proved enough to claim the Cellcard goodies of either an internet dongle or a US$20 phone voucher as well as a T-shirt.    

Rithcie’s squad featured the common practice of placing Arsenal’s captain fantastic Robin van Persie as skipper to double up on his 13 point contribution, while Blackburn’s Ayegbeni Yakubu was also picked for 13 points. Having Richards at the back made a big difference, while Tottenham’s Gareth Bale proved a welcome inclusion for 11 points.

Gameweek 13 rolls through in the standard 2-day weekend format, with the standout fixture being Liverpool facing another epic clash against league leaders Man City. Make sure you check on the latest injury news before making your transfers prior to the 6:30pm deadline on Saturday.
