Trending: Leicester City shock Liverpool


Southampton plan to keep Van Dijk

By ESPN Staff

Premier Showdown - December 14-15

Tommy Smyth ended his poor run of form and stormed to victory last weeked -- he's back to within touching distance of Dale Johnson!

Work to do again then for the Rest of the World, and looking to guide them to victory next time out is Raymond de Speville who becomes our first-ever competitor from the Seychelles!

Raymond tells us: "I was born and currently live in Mahe in the Seychelles. I grew up in Zimbabwe and went to the same school as Bruce Grobbelaar. In fact, he was in the same class as my younger brother! It is for this reason that I became a Liverpool supporter albeit that they were dominating at the time. I am 60 years old and own a small import business and have an accounting and marketing background. This is the season of Liverpool's revival abck to greatness. YNWA!!!"

Game on!

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:

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.
