Jamie Carragher has reached the second round of the Fantasy Football Club Cup after beating Soccer AM's Max Rushden in a replay.
The two Sky Sports stars drew 89-89 on the previous weekend, but former Liverpool defender made no mistake in this weekend's meeting, claiming a 76-33 win to progress.
Carragher produced a tactical masterstroke by naming Santi Cazorla as his captain and the Arsenal midfielder restored his faith with two goals against Fulham.
In fact, the Spaniard contributed more fantasy football points on his own than Rushden's entire team!
Max's skipper Luis Suarez drew a rare blank against Aston Villa and the result not only sees him exit the cup, but leaves him languishing in 40th place in the Sky Sports League.
Carragher, meanwhile, is up to fourth behind Gary Neville, Fenners & Merse and David Croft.
The Monday Night Football pundit will learn his second-round opponent when the draw is made on next week's The Fantasy Football Club (January 31).
