With just three clubs failing to score during gameweek 17 of the CC/PPP/CTN Fantasy League, the tallies of the most prudent fantasy managers were bound to be high.

Arsenal’s midfield maestro Santi Cazorla gave their beleaguered fans something to cheer about finally with a sublime hat-trick and an assist against Reading on Monday night. The 26-year-old Spaniard amassed 23 points for his endeavours to become the week’s top pick up by a country mile.

Aston Villa’s new Belgian striking sensation, Christian Benteke, netted twice and set up another to collect 15 points.

The Dream team defence was completely dominated by Tottenham players, with goal scorer Jan Verthongen equalling Benteke on 16 points, Kyle Walker grabbing 11 points and Kyle Naughton securing seven.

With yet another top performance over the weekend including a goal and assist, Man United’s Robin van Persie earned a dozen points to move to 114 in total and reclaim the overall lead from Swansea’s Miguel Michu.

Our gameweek winner was the only one in triple figures as Dinarith Heng scored a nice round 100 points with his team O.P.Y. Fc. Dinarith capitalised on captain Van Persie and choice call-up Cazorla, who contributed nearly half of his century of points.

Dinarith reaps the weekly spoils from sponsors Cellcard, which include a US$20 phone voucher and T-shirt.

Gameweek 18 will be characterised by the Premier League’s heavyweights looking to steamroll their less-prolific opponents.

So expect an abundance of points and another high-scoring winner of the Fantasy League.


Dream team:

Boaz Myhill (West Brom) – 9, Jan Verthongen (Tottenham) – 15, Kyle Walker (Tottenham) – 11, Kyle Naughton (Tottenham) – 7, Santi Cazorla (Arsenal) – 23, Adel Taarabt (QPR) – 14, Wesley Hoolahan (Norwich) – 13, Anthony Pilkington (Norwich) – 11, Christian Benteke (Aston Villa) – 15, Lukas Podolski (Arsenal) – 14, Robin Van Persie (Man United) – 12
