Premier Showdown - Dec 19-21

Dale Johnson returned to winning ways in our midweek round to further underline his dominance on Premier Showdown this season. Can anyone stop him?

The games are coming thick and fast now, of course, and it's a crucial part of the competition.

Joining us this weekend is Abdulrahman K. Hudu.

He tells ESPN Soccernet: "I'm Abdulrahman K. Hudu aka Mistic Biggy J from Kano State, Nigeria. My favourite club is Manchester United.

"I'm a manager/network administrator for Webxpress Ltd (Internet cafe/business centre), in Kano. I'm 29 years of age."

Let's see those predictions!

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.
