Matchweek 23 Roundup: Unbeaten Runs, Ending Goal Droughts and The Battle For Europe
It was the second-biggest scoring weekend of the season at 7OTB with 36 players correctly finding all seven selections. The best player of the week was Wendy Robinson, so the £100 cash prize is going to Wendy. Those that got seven but missed out will have the consolation of a free bet from our new partners 22BET. As will many other players on the leaderboard. All prize winners will be contacted by email from firstname.lastname@example.org, please check your spam folder if this email is not in your contact list.
In the third week of four in the team competition, we have a new front runner in Evergreen who scored a cracking 119 points and set the benchmark pretty high with only one week to go. They lead the way for the next £700 prize.
Ledley King scored 16 points.
Ledley King's Talking Points
Bruno Fernandes' first Premier League goal set Man United on their way to a 3-0 win over relegation-threatened Watford. The first-half penalty ended a wait of 236 minutes for a United goal at Old Trafford.
A Diogo Jota double sealed an easy win for Wolves over Norwich on Sunday, taking his tally to five goals in two games and keeping Wolves in the chase for a Champions League spot. It’s the first time Wolves have kept three consecutive clean sheets in the top flight since 1981.
Arsenal have registered consecutive Premier League wins for the first time since winning their opening two games of the season against Newcastle and Burnley. The 3-2 win over Everton builds momentum for Arteta’s side in the battle for Europe.
Chelsea opened up a four-point lead over Spurs after the 2-1 victory at Stamford Bridge. Lampard’s side continued their pursuit of a top-four finish with goals from Olivier Giroud and Marcos Alonso.
Celtic moved 12 point clear at the top of the Scottish Premier League after their 3-1 win over Kilmarnock, while Rangers slipped up and could only muster a draw against St Johnstone.
Championship leaders West Brom made light work of 10 man Bristol City to win 3-0 at Ashton Gate on Saturday. The Baggies remain four points clear at the summit.
Birmingham City maintained their unbeaten run, intact since New Year’s Day, after Scott Hogan’s last-minute equaliser against Sheffield Wednesday to conclude a pulsating 3-3 draw.
