Barca attack picking up steam

Premier Showdown - Nov 15-17

Tommy stormed to victory last weekend with a Sunday correct score double header, leaving Dale trailing in second. It was a long overdue victory for the Irishman who closes the gap on the ROTW.

Looking to put the ROTW back on form is Bashiru Musah who comes from Accra in Ghana.

What does Bashiru have to tell us?

"I am Bashiru," he says somewhat unsurprisingly. "I am 22 years old and I must say I live on football. I have recently formed an under eight's football team.

"I drive almost 1hr 30mins to the nearest pub to watch my beloved team Chelsea thrash other teams. I just enjoy watching Chelsea, boring or entertaining. Bring it on, Tommy."

Soccernet's Premier League Editor, Dale Johnson, and ESPNsoccernet 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.
