Matchweek 24 Roundup: Shock Results, Resounding Wins and Goalkeeping Errors
It was the lowest scoring week of the season at 7OTB, with Liverpool's shock defeat to Watford ruining most selections. The top player with only 21 points was Walkabouts, with that tally being good enough to win them the weekly cash prize.

Ledley scored just seven points this week.
Ledley King's Talking Points
Watford provided the shock of the weekend with a resounding 3-0 win over Liverpool on Saturday night. It was Klopp’s first Premier League defeat in 423 days, and even though it will have very little impact on the outcome of their campaign, it does mean that Arsenal remain the only team to go unbeaten for a season!
Man City lifted their third successive League Cup, their fourth in five years, after beating Aston Villa 2-1. Including Community Shields, Guardiola has now claimed eight of the last nine trophies on offer in England.
Wolves fought back from behind twice to beat Spurs 3-2 in North London. Lacking the injured Harry Kane and Heung-min Son, Spurs struggled to find an answer to Raul Jiminez’ winner. Mourinho said, “We don't have that aggression. I think we are too nice. That was the only thing that made a difference."
Goalkeeping errors were on the menu at Goodison Park as Everton drew 1-1 with Man Utd. De Gea’s clearance bounced straight off Calvert-Lewin and into the back of the net, while Jordan Pickford let a dipping shot bounce into the goal for United’s equaliser.
Leeds ran out 4-0 winners against Hull to move within one point of league leaders West Brom. It was Bielsa’s sides fourth straight win in the league, maintaining a five point gap above the playoff places.
Wigan picked up a third straight win to bolster their survival hopes with a shock 1-0 win over West Brom. The Latics moved outside the relegation zone after picking up nine points from three games.
Huddersfield Town moved five points clear of the Championship relegation zone as Karlan Grant scored twice in a convincing win over Charlton. It was Town’s second straight win with a local derby against rivals Leeds up next.
