A belter of a gameweek afforded the opportunity for some Herculean hauls of points in the PPP/CTN Fantasy League thanks to four extra fixtures.

Tottenham were the only side to win twice and accordingly boasted the star player of the round, Rafael van der Vaart.

The Dutch midfielder netted a goal in each game as well as notching an assist and a clean sheet to amass 22 points.

His teammate Kyle Walker also made the elite 11 with 16 points via a stunning performance against Blackburn that saw the defender score and keep things tight at the back.

Chelsea’s Fernando Torres has finally started to show reason for his exorbitant price tag, and racked up 19 points in main part down to a hat-trick during the game with QPR.

Everton’s Steven Pienaar showed that its not all about getting on the scoresheet, with three assists in a game contributing to his 18-point total.

With four double-headers compelling managers to stock their squad with players from the eight teams involved, some seemed to forget about our four transfers per gameweek rule.

However, Soravuth Van’s team SMC2_ACLEDA BANK FC managed to collect 139 points with just two transfers to earn his place at the top of the weekly standings.

Soravuth’s side featured four Dream teamers – Torres, Walker, Chelsea’s Juan Mata (17) and Liverpool’s Luaz Suarez (17) – with Suarez given the captain’s armband to double up on his stellar tally.

Gareth Bale (14) and keeper Brad Friedel (9) were also Spurs inclusions for the SMC2s.

With all the US$20 phone vouchers already taken out, Soravuth will collect an internet dongle and T-shirt from sponsors Cellcard, who noted they would change their prize policy for the next competition.

Gameweek 37, the penultimate session of the season, is already under way and will conclude tomorrow with a rematch between FA Cup final rivals Liverpool and Chelsea.
