Premier Showdown - Jan 31 - Feb 1

Well, well, well! Another victory for Tommy Smyth in midweek - he edged in front of the Rest of the World by a point - meaning it's all getting very truncated in the table right now. If Tommy picks up another win this weekend he'll be level with our intrepid band of challengers! Who do we welcome to the party this weekend? It's Christopher Kaylakie. What does Chrissy have to say for himself? Let's find out: "I am a 31-year-old airline pilot from Austin, Texas in the United States and I'm an avid Manchester United supporter. "It's great to see us at the top where we belong. I am keeping my eye on Chelsea and Liverpool, but I also think Arsenal have a late run in them yet! "Of course I feel I am an expert on the matter so let's match wits!" Let's match indeed!

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.
