Premier Showdown - Dec 20-22

So it was another victory for Dale last weekend taking him clear again at the top of the table. So can our other intrepid prediction players find some festive cheer? Joining the Rest of the World this weekend is Michael Teong from Malaysia. Michael tells us: "I'm 31 and I am currently working as Quantity Surveyor in a construction firm in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. I am big fan of Liverpool. "I am delighted with Liverpool's chances of winning the Premier League title this year but very concerned and worried about the injuries to Torres and expect him to come back in order to strengthen Liverpool - then they will win title this season!" Michael is newly married so... congratulations! Let's play.

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.
