Quite a result for Leeds yesterday but it shows how far we have come this season when we are disappointed with a draw and a clean sheet against Man. U!
Our super young French goalkeeper, Meslier, who at just 20 is the youngest keeper ever to keep 10 clean sheets in the EPL is a revelation. The rest of the team fought hard and I have to admit, it wasn't the most fun game to watch but I'm happy to take the point. Only Spurs to visit Elland Road now and if we stop them from winning, that will be all the top 6 teams who haven't been able to beat us at home. Now bad for our first year back!
As for our last game. Chelsea nicked it by a goal to nil and Werner scored the first and only goal of the game. Did we have any winners? Wait until the end because today it's the turn of...
I've been looking at the numbers for the chance of an upset here and it's very difficult to find anything other than a strong Leicester win. Palace have let in 52 this season and only scored 33, it's not great and is the reason they sit in 13th place. Leicester have no problems in the scoring department with Vardy and Kelechi Iheanacho who has scored 13 in 13 now. The only blot on Leicester's copybook is that 7 of their 9 defeats have come at home! A little boring but...
Prediction: Leicester 3 : 0 Palace - First Goalscorer: Vardy!
Simply write the name of the FIRST GOALSCORER and the CORRECT SCORE as a comment. The competition closes 5 minutes before kick-off which is 20.00 BST
The Small Print
In the first goalscorer competition, own goals do not count. In the correct score competition, it's the score after 90mins. Extra time and penalties do not count and the pot for each competition will roll over if there is no winner. If more than one person chooses the same first goalscorer or correct score, the prize is shared and everyone gets a little upvote! It seems I also need to add, one entry per person. Don't forget the new rule that only people with a rep of 45 or above are eligible to enter unless they have been approved. The bonus will be added to any winnings ONLY if Leeds United win and/or Man U lose and all payouts will never exceed 50% of post payout. Other bonuses paid out at my discretion.
The Winners were...
Sadly a rather poor turnout yesterday but perhaps expected as it was an early kick-off. No one got the correct score but step forward @jfang003 who was the only one to predict Werner to get the first goal. 5500+500 are on their way to you, my friend!
