Premier Showdown - February 11-12
It's now four wins in a row for the Rest of the World team, and after looking dead and buried this season they are now right back in contention for the title.
Looking to make it a five-timer in our midweek round is Matthew Kanterman who comes from New York in the US of A.
He tells ESPN FC: "I am a recent graduate of the Stephen M Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan and am just starting a new job in the financial sector. I am a diehard Liverpool fan and have no problem waking up for the early morning kickoffs.
"Saturday against Arsenal was one of the best games I have ever seen, save for that infamous night in Istanbul in 2005 which I will never, ever forget. I will say that for Liverpool, as much credit is given to SAS, Sterling in recent weeks who has lived up to his namesake, or anyone else, the real pivotal player has been Coutinho. But I digress..."
For each round of matches we invite someone to represent the Rest of the World and take on ESPN FC TV's Tommy Smyth and ESPN FC journalist Dale Johnson in our predictions game.
Points are then awarded as follows:
- Three points for a correct result and scoreline
- One point for a correct result
After the weekend's scores are in and the Showdown result has been worked out, the winning pundit receives three points for their season's total Should the challenger win, the total is added to the Rest of the World tally. In the case of a draw, the points are shared.
We want your entries for the next round of games - so get your selections in now!
The Rest of the World's great run comes to an end as Dale Johnson gets a much-needed win. And it's starting to bunch up at the top!
