Premier Showdown - Nov 18/19

Finally there was a change in the status quo last weekend as Rodney Clack ended Dale Johnson's long and painful unbeaten run by storming to victory. Dale and Tommy Smyth had no answer and woeful scores - no contest.

The ROTW need to work hard to chip away at Dale's healthy lead, mind, and will need to put together their own run to make an impression at the top.

The resposibility for that this weekend falls into the lap of Chor Weng Lai.

Chor is an 18-year-old student from Malaysia who has been supporting Liverpool since he was a kid. He's an admirer of the free-flowing football that Arsenal and Barcelona play - but Liverpool is still the club for him despite their disappointing Premiership campaign so far!

Let's play...

Each week one of our readers, or an ESPNSoccernet Press Pass viewer, will get the chance to challenge our two experts. They, along with the challenger, will cast their eyes over weekend's top flight fixtures in England and predict how they think each game will turn out.

Soccernet's Premiership Editor, Dale Johnson, and Press Pass pundit Tommy Smyth take up the challenge from our team.

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 result has been worked out, the winning pundit will receive three points for their season's total. Should the challenger win, the total will be added to the 'Rest of the World's' tally. In the case of a draw, the points will be shared between those level on points.
