Premier Showdown - Oct 2-3

What a weekend for Tommy Smyth. He picks up back-to-back victories and tops the predition table - and after a great run of form stretching back to the end of last season can Tommy make a real challenge for the title?

The Rest of the World could do with getting back to winning ways, and hoping to make that happen is one of our old friends, Umesh Patel, who is a long time follower of Showdown.

Umesh tells us: "Hi, I'm Umesh from Atlanta, USA and I'm a devoted Manchester United supporter. Chelsea have started the season like they ended the last one but at last they were given a tough test and failed. But as a Man United fan the demise of Liverpool has a silver lining that hopefully continues. We just need to learn how to defend in the last five minutes of the game.

"The ROTW has made a good start so let's see if we can keep it up!"

Let's see indeed.

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 Showdown 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 tally. In the case of a draw, the points are shared.
