ON A WEEKEND when there were some huge scores to be had, Deirdre Meehan continues to lead the way in the Champions Travel Fantasy Premier League.
Her team, the ‘Humdingers’ scored a healthy 89 points, with the decision to have Alexis Sanchez (pictured above) as captain playing particular dividends. The Chilean scored twice as Arsenal ran riot in a 4-1 win at Sunderland.[adrotate group=”80″]
With the armband, Sanchez came home with 26 points. And another notable player for Meehan over the weekend was Tom Heaton, the Burnley goalkeeper. Heaton was in excellent form at Old Trafford in a scoreless draw, keeping a clean sheet and getting 11 points.
