Sothearith United strikes gold again

Premier League fixtures fin-ally came back after a two-week hiatus for World Cup qualifiers, with all 10 teams clashing over the long weekend. Four-star routs by Arsenal and Man City helped bump up the totals in the CC/PPP/CTN Fantasy League’s Gameweek 31 as well as individual brilliance of some familiar names.

The week’s top tally came from Arsenal’s Gervinho, who scored one and set up two more in their 4-1 demolition of Reading.

Just a point back from the Ivory Coast winger were the Tottenham pairing of Jan Vertonghen and Gareth Bale, who each had a goal and assist, as well as brace-bagging Dimitar Berbatov of Fulham and West Ham’s Andy Carroll.

Our weekly contest saw a return to glory for Prak Thav Sothearith, who took his Soth-earith United to its second victory in three gameweeks with a fine tally of 92 points.

Sothearith’s squad featured the perfect picks of Bale as captain for 26 points, along with fellow Dream Teamers Berbatov, Vertonghen and Arsenal’s Santi Cazorla (12 points).

Sothearith collects another S$20 phone voucher and T-shirt from sponsor Cellcard.

Gameweek 32 over the upcoming weekend features another full round of ties, culminating in the Manchester derby on Monday between the top two sides.
