SBC’s League of Legends fantasy football league has seen a number of movers and shakers this week, in the aftermath of two huge derbies in the Premier League yesterday.
A late penalty on Merseyside saw Everton rescue a point at Anfield, while Manchester City strengthened their place at the top of Premiership with victory at Old Trafford.
In the world of fantasy football just 15 points now separate the top four, with the chasing pack hot on their heels.
Sean McRory was the big winner in that pack at the summit, claiming 58 points to move into third on 914 overall. Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah, the overall top scorer with 124, was the highest scorer within his side, seeing his 11 points doubled courtesy of the captaincy, backed up by Christian Eriksen (eight), with Joe Gomez and Marcus Rashford totalling six apiece.
Algosport Founder and CEO Leigh Herdman was the best performing manager in the top ten, totalling 70 points to slide up the table into seventh. Tottenham’s two goal hero Harry Kane was installed as captain, and responded with 24 points, with Salah and Manchester City defender Nicolas Otamendi also chipping win with 11 points each.
This weeks overall top scorer in the League of Legends is Alex Kalli, Senior Marketing Manager of Sports at Yahoo. With an overall score of 81 points, Kalli has Spurs to thank, with the combo of Kane (captain, 24) and top points scorer for the gameweek Heung-Min Son (16) laying on almost half the total between them. Elsewhere it was defence who helped out the most, with the trio of Stephen Ward, Kyle Naughton and Gomez scoring eight, seven and six points respectively.
In the busy festive football season, midweek football returns for gameweek 17. Chelsea face another tricky away trip as they visit Huddersfield, while leaders City travel to struggling Swansea City and Arsenal go to a West Ham side full of confidence after defeating the defending champions on Saturday.
On paper Spurs, Manchester United and Liverpool have more straightforward ties, each at home to Brighton, Bournemouth and West Brom respectively.
