NEW FORMAT: 52000 Sports Tokens Up For Grabs Today - First Goal Scorer + Correct Score Comp. No. 426: EPL - Southampton v Norwich - 25th February 2022
Wolves must be gutted! Losing to a 95th minute winner by way of an own goal which gave Arsenal the deserved winner in last night's game.
It has to be said that Arsenal fully deserved the win having fought valiently and with determination since going behind to a Hwang Hee-chan goal in the 10th minute (1 winner again!). This really turns up the heat on Scum in 4th place as Arsenal are now just 1 point behind with 2 games in hand. Who's going to bottle it first I ask myself as both teams are good for a wobble? As we approach the back-end of the season, the league is still alive with drama and 'what-ifs!
We have another Premier League game tonight to kick-off a big weekend...
Not one I'll be staying up to watch tonight! Southampton sit mid table on 32 points and are on a decent patch of form at the moment. All season, they have only lost one game at home without setting the league on fire. HEads down and hard work have served them well all season. Their scoring record isn't bad but their defensive record is pretty poor which might be a problem as Norwich last weekend, despite losing, really took the game to Liverpool but having only scored 15 goals all season, no amount of running is going to get them points.
The figures for Norwich say it all. 15 scored, 53 conceded and sat in bottom place, you can't see any signs of them improving on that come the end of the season.
Norwich goalkeeper, Tim Krul has recovered form injury is back in contention. Not sure whether that is a positive or negative! For Southampton, Lyanco, Nathan Tella and Alex McCarthy are all out. Shouldn't matter, the points are there for the taking and with games coming up against Watford and Newcastle, who knows where they could end up at the end of the season!
Prediction: Southampton 2 : 0 Norwich - First Goalscorer: Mohamed Elyounoussi

Extra time and penalties do not count and the pot for each competition is fixed at 25K except the time of the first goal competition which rolls over daily starting at 1K. If more than one person chooses the same first goal scorer or correct score, the prize is shared, and everyone gets a little upvote! Don't forget, you can't choose the same prediction as me! It seems I also need to add, one entry per person. Don't forget new rule that only people with a rep of 50 or above are eligible to enter unless they have been approved. My game, my decision is final.
And the Winners were...
Back in transfer hell today as we had a sackful of winners with the correct 2-1 scoreline so its a big shout-out to @emeka4, @numpypython, @yeckingo1, @hykss.sports, @mrenglish and @amakauz who share 25k between them and take home 4200 tokens each.
No one got the first goal scorer which was Hwang Hee-chan but well done to @bitandi who got the correct time and takes his 1k. I really didnt expect this prize to go so easily and hoped it might build up a big pot but I'll see how things go for the next few days.
And that's your lot for today. Now all I need to do is work out how much I'm going toput on the table for a little side-bet with @blanchy tomorrow lol ;-)
Oh and check your winnings and and comments carefully to make sure I haven't missed anyone out please.
