Yaya & Kaka strike in gameweek three

Gameweek 3 saw the PPP/CTN Fantasy League hit a nitro-boost with comprehensive routs completed by the favoured four clubs this season. Man City’s Bosnian prodigy Edin Dzeko produced a master-class of finishing against Spurs to find the back of the net four times and grab 21 points. 

Despite this formidable haul, it was a brace-bagging midfielder that took the MVP honours. Man United’s newly recruited Ashley Young has given good argument to his fantasy price hike, and his double of goals and treble of assists helped him total 23 points.

Meanwhile, Young’s team-mate and perennial fantasy favourite Wayne Rooney hit a hat-trick and assisted another to yield 19 points.

The battle for the weekly prize was hotly contested, with numerous sides passing the prestigious century mark. However, one manager managed to pip to others into top spot by just a point.

Sum Sipha with his side Yaya & Kaka amassed 108 points to collect his choice of either a US$20 phone voucher or an internet dongle as well as a T-shirt from sponsors Cellcard.

Sipha made just three notable choices for his line-up, but they happened to be the three top performers as mentioned above, including doubling up Rooney’s points to 38 as captain.
