Fantasy Commentary
My view towards matches this week.

Arsenal 3-0 Aston Villa

Arsene Wenger's side recorded a sensational victory as captain Cesc played for 27 minutes giving everything needed especially two goals to crush Aston Villa by 3 goals.

It was a game expected to be tight and it was tight at the first half thanks to resolute defence by Villa especially Richard Dunne and Stephen Warnock. Nevertheless, the away side were unable to create any clear cut chances.

The fans were happy as the gunners' ace Fabregas was introduced in the second half. And the game very much became one-sided after that. Just like what I heard from the commentators: "Arshavin is activated since Fabregas presence." Pressure was greatly imposed on Dunne and co and it didn't make it long for the first goal.

Dunne committed a foul just outside of penalty box and Fabregas didn't waste any time to struck in a beautiful curve passing Brad Friedel to collect his 11th goal of the season.

Since then Villa seemed to be unable to recover from the pain and Arsenal got their second without much fuss and it's again from Fabregas! King Fabby was then subbed out to avoid any more injuries inflicted to him due to the recurrence of his hamstring before Diaby scored his second goal in two games to increase the gap into three goals.

Well, since Fabregas is 99% doubtful for next game and doubtful for the game against Portsmouth as well, Arshavin will be the hot plate in gameweek 20. The cheap plate Diaby is a hot prospect too.

Cesc is God.

The Rest

Chelsea slipped yet another two points to put themselves on doubt for title as United is now two points behind them whereas Arsenal is four with one game advantage. Joe Hart was the happy man as Capello may now consider him to be the #1 goalkeeper of England now.

Fulham kept another clean sheet to keep Redknapp's challenge for Champions League tough, while Zola secured a much needed victory to take his side out of relegation zone and stick Portsmouth on the bottom.

Burnley, Wigan and Everton shared one point with Bolton, Blackburn and Sunderland respectively, while Manchester City and Liverpool both secured a two goal win over their opponents.

Rooney scored one and made two as United claimed three points over Hull with much style.

He's looking good to head for South Africa.

Fantasy Report Card
Results of my fantasy line-ups.

GW19's One-Gamer
The highly expected top achiever of the gameweek.

Carlos Tevez (9 pts)
Scored a brilliant goal and claimed three bonus points.


Wayne Rooney (GW15-19)
Final Score: 33pts
Points per Game: 6.6pts
Score 15 points this week to file up my first five-gamer closure nicely.

Didier Drogba (GW16-20) [17 pts - provisional]
Yet another disappointing gameweek.

Carlos Tevez (GW17-21) [17 pts - provisional]
Refer to this week's one-gamer.

Ivan Klasnic (GW18-22) [2 pts - provisional]
Somehow lost his form. Should be my worst five-gamer in making.

Andrey Arshavin (GW19-23) [3 pts - provisional]
Not really impressive this week.

GW19's Best Line-Up
My preferred squad of the week.


G Cahill(2) --- Scharner(2) --- Alexander(2)

Dempsey(3) --- Duff(3) --- N'Zogbia(8) --- Milner(2)

Rodallega(8) --- Torres(2) --- Tevez(C)(18)

---Subs (unused in order): Given(6), Kranjcar(4), Dunne(1), Pantsil(5)---

Captain: Tevez
Total Score: 53
Best Possible Score: 61
Team Value: £93.6m
Starting XI Value: £71.2m

Verdict: Bad but not to the extent of terrible. No Rooney and no Fabby. =(
