Sugar-free Aguero proves a sweet tonic for Field

Gameweek 36 saw Queens Park Rangers meekly give up the relegation ghost after a 6-0 drubbing at the hands of Manchester City on Sunday. Swansea, meanwhile, soaked up the pressure at the Emirates to down Arsenal 1-0 in the week’s biggest shock.

City’s 26-year-old striker Sergio Aguero bagged a hat-trick and two assists to be the week’s Star Man on 23 points as the Hoops surrendered to Championship football and have the added bonus of legal proceedings over possible Financial Fair Play irregularities and the prospect of a £58 million ($90 million) fine. Ouch.

Aguero, the Premier League’s top scorer with 25 goals despite being out of action with a knee injury for a month around New Year, has put his incredible form down to a change in diet. “I needed a healthier way of life,” the Argentinian hitman told the Guardian, and he has cut out pasta, sugar and meat from his diet.

It is not known if Dominic Field, manager of Ych-y-fi was aware of Aguero’s new eating habits, but Field had the striker as captain nontheless for 46 points to power him to 115 points and the Fantasy Football summit this week and has the just reward of $20 Cellcard phone credit.

Field also had three other Dream Teamers in his side: Aguero’s City teammates David Silva and Aleksandar Kolarov, both for 16 points, and Chelsea’s John Terry for nine.

Another notable Dream Teamer was Leicester City midfielder Riyad Mahrez who accrued 16 points for his heroics at either end in scoring a brace and keeping a clean sheet as the Foxes kept up their remarkable run to reach 15th place.

Gameweek 37 will be played this weekend and the standout tie is Manchester United versus Arsenal. The Gunners and Sunderland are in action twice this week.

There was no winner in the Cellcard Facebook competition because no one could correctly predict the scoreline in Chelsea and Liverpool’s 1-1 draw on Sunday.
