Premier Showdown - Feb 4-6
It's been a dismal spell for the Rest of the World, having not picked up a point since December 22. That means Dale Johnson has now drawn level at the top of the table, and Tommy Smyth could climb up too in the space of four rounds to hold on to his crown. Looking to get the ROTW back on track this weekend is Walt Malik from The Villages in Florida, United States. It's back to the land of stars and stripes. Walt tells us: "I'm 73 and a retired chemist living the good life in Florida. I play golf and started watching the Bundesliga with my son 20 years ago. When the Premier League started to be shown live I was hooked; I can't get enough!" Play! Play! Play!
For each round of matches we invite someone to represent the Rest of the World and take on Press Pass' Tommy Smyth and ESPNsoccernet 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.
A draw at Anfield and Tommy gets an easy victory. The gap is getting smaller for our champion!
