The Premier League is entering the business end of the season and the table is beginning to take shape, something that is reflected in SBC’s League of Legends where fantasy managers are set for one final push as they search for the summit.
In the latest round of fixtures Swansea City continued the great escape under Carlos Carvalhal, climbing up to 13th after beating West Ham 4-1, Arsenal’s dismal season got worse at Brighton as they lost 2-1 and Manchester United fought back from two down at Selhurst Park to defeat Crystal Palace 3-2.
Top scoring for the round, and closing in on top spot, is Ballers Media Group’s Chief Business Officer Piyush Choudhary, currently sitting in fifth, and just 44 points off first place. Two goal Tottenham hero Heung-Min Son top scored with 16 points, as Spurs triumphed 2-0 over Huddersfield Town at Wembley, with Ki Sung-yueng notching a goal and an assist for resurgent Swansea on his way to 13 points.
Sitting just outside the top ten and very much making a late charge is Dafatbet’s John Cruces, who registered 75 points as he leapfrogged several places to 12th. Son secured the joint top score with 16 points, level with captain Mohamed Salah, with Manchester City playmaker David Silva and Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang chipping in with nine points apiece.
Charlie Cole still sits at the top of the League of Legends, although a respectable showing of 54 points has allowed some of the better scoring chasing pack to gain ground. Only captain Harry Kane (10 points) managed to secure double figures, with overall top scorer Salah (eight) and Jordan Ayew (7) next in line.
Gameweek 30 of the 2017/18 Premier League season gets underway at Old Trafford, where Manchester United hope to cement their place in second by putting one over bitter rivals Liverpool.
Elsewhere Swansea travel to Huddersfield in an attempt to further distance themselves from the drop zone, bottom of the table West Bromwich Albion host Leicester City and Arsenal hope to get a much needed win at home to Watford.
