Premier Showdown - Oct 3-5

It's been an absolute horror start for the Rest of the World, the Portsmouth of the predictions game!

Will it be any different this weekend?

Joining us from Singapore is Ceng Lok.

He says: "I am a 51-year-old and have followed English football and Arsenal since 1972. I am an engineering manager in the oil and gas industry."

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.

No one had a draw at Villa Park which brings to an end what has perhaps been the most pitiful display of predictions Premier Showdown has ever had the misfortune to witness. And the ROTW still have a blank! And to think the ROTW have twice been champions.....
