Premier Showdown - Feb 9-11

Another victory for Dale last weekend, yes we know it's getting predictable (see what I did there? - Ed), and he's very close to a runaway championship success. A lead of 25.5 points with just 39 left on the table is going to be almost impossible to claw back. In fact, Dale could be the new champion in a mere three rounds' time.

So who will be looking to claim a vital victory for the ROTW? It's Sunday Adeola! He's from Port Harcourt in Nigeria.

Let's hear what he has to say: 'I am an Executive Director of Ultrasprings Nigeria Limited. We specialise in the hot-taping part of pipe line intervetion (yes, we're confused too - Ed).

'I am 47-years-old. I am a big supporter of Arsenal and also co-ordinator of the supporters' club for the state in Nigeria. Gunner for life!'

Let's see if he'll be a winner...

Each week one of our readers, or an ESPNSoccernet Press Pass viewer, has the chance to challenge our two experts.

Soccernet's Premier League Editor, Dale Johnson, and Press Pass pundit Tommy Smyth take up the test.

They, along with the challenger, cast their eyes over weekend's top flight fixtures in England and predict how they think each game will turn out.

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 receives three points for their season's total. Should the challenger win, the total is added to the 'Rest of the World's' tally. In the case of a draw, the points are shared between those level on points.

Amazingly, Emanuel Adebayor's injury time goal robs the ROTW of victory and gives Dale another three points. When will this end?

Dale: 46
Rest of the World: 17.5
Tommy: 14.5
