Defender 1: Gerrard Pique [Barcelona] – 12 Points
Barcelona defense led by Gerrard Pique delivered a great performance in the final La Liga match at Camp Nou. The defenders needed to redeem themselves after a disastrous performance that led to a 5-4 defeat at the hands of Levante. It was a costly loss because it denied the team a great chance of going for 38 League matches without a defeat. Last week they were tight at the back to deny a hungry Real Sociedad side. The great performance earned the Spanish center-back 12 points on SokkaaStars . Marcos Alonso also garnered similar points in FA Cup final win against Manchester United.
Defender 2: César Azpilicueta [Chelsea] – 12 Points
César Azpilicueta performance against Manchester United in FA Cup final shows why he has been named in Spain final 23-man squad for the World Cup. The versatile defender has been very consistent in the last few years. He can play in all defensive positions. Azpilicueta is also very calm under pressure a good reason why Antonio Conte has selected him many times since he arrived. Last weekend, he earned 12 points to emerge top of Defender 2 category on SokkaaStars . Jordi Alba and Marcelo were joint-second with 10 points.
Midfielder 1: Eden Hazard [Chelsea] – 18 Points
Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard penalty against Manchester United handed his club 2017/18 FA Cup crown on Saturday at Wembley Stadium. The Blues defended the goal for the remainder of the match and Jose Mourinho side could not find an equalizer. The goal earned the Belgian 18 points to top Midfielder 1 category on SokkaaStars Fantasy League. Barcelona attacker Philippe Coutinho also scored the winner for the Catalans last Sunday.
It is the kind of redemption manager Antonio Conte needed after finishing fifth in the Premier League. However, there are reports that he might still be sacked by the club in a similar style Red Devils sacked Louis Van Gaal few days after delivering FA Cup glory in 2015. No matter what happens, 2 trophies in two seasons will be a very good achievement for his CV.
