Premier Showdown

It's was a draw last week as Tommy Snyth and Dale Johnson shared the points. It means the Rest of the World's lead has been slightly eroded, but it's still a healthy advantage.

Representing the ROTW this weekend is Tayo Ojutalayo who currently lives in Paris, France.

Tayo tells Showdown: "I'm a 23-year-old Nigerian MBA Student in Paris and I support Chelsea. I have been a fan for close to 11 years.

"I currently work as an intern but I find time to play football twice a week. My favourite coaches are Jose Mourihno, Pep Guardiola and Carlo Ancelotti, while my favourite players are John Terry, Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba.

"And yes, I would pick Ronaldo over Messi anyday, anytime!"

Let's play!

Get your entry in for the next round using the form at the foot of this page.

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.
