What a weekend! Did anyone see the masterclass that Leeds gave Tottenham yesterday? Probably the best overall team performance all season and a masterstroke by Bielsa, sending out the same team that were shit last weekend in the loss against Brighton to redeem themselves!
Anyway, I have now got two games to sort out and send your winnings although I have to say, you guys didn't have such a good weekend lol We'll do it at the end, but for now, let's have a look at today's game between...
The key point in this game is that Arsenal have nothing to play for except pride (if they have any!) but West Brom MUST win to keep any slight mathematical chance of staying up, alive. Even so, it's not going to happen.
Arsenal have Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang back and fit, and with the addition of Alexandre Lacazette available from the bench, have far too much for WBA. no matter the motivation. It's time to say goodbye to their disappointing year in the Premier League and start preparing for an assault on the Championship next season.
Prediction: Arsenal 3 : 1 West Brom - First Goalscorer: Aubameyang
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 19.00 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...
So let's start with Friday's game between Leicester and Newcastle. Now that was a turn-up and no one got the correct 2-4 scoreline rather unsurprisingly. The first goal was scored by Joe Willock and well done to @tokutaro22 and @numpypython who take home 3000+500 tokens each.
