Matchweek 6 Roundup: Perfect Hat-Tricks, Blown Chances and Firing Blanks
Four players got a full-house this week, each moving a step closer to the jackpot while none of last week's players to predict all 7 results correctly could repeat the feat. Our individual prize winner is Jayandrews57, who takes home the £100 cash prize.
The best team this week was Gumbos Gems with 97 points. It wasn't enough to knock last week's leaders off their perch, meaning 7 Greatest Generals lead the way for the £700 prize with two weeks to go, on a score of 113. That is the score to beat for all teams over the next fortnight.
Ledley scored 12 points this week.
Ledley King's Talking Points
Liverpool came from behind to beat Spurs at Anfield and restore their six-point lead at the top of the table. Harry Kane opened the scoring within a minute, but a Jordan Henderson equaliser and Mo Salah penalty extended Liverpool's unbeaten run at home to 45 league games.
Christian Pulisic scored a perfect hat-trick in his first start since August, as Chelsea beat Burnley with their seventh consecutive win in all competitions. The Clarets have now only won one of their last 26 Premier League games against ‘the big six’.
Sterling’s strike 23 seconds into the second half set Man City on their way to a 3-0 win against Aston Villa. It was his 13th strike of the season, and his 7th in the league, leaving him two goals behind Vardy in the race for the PL golden boot.
Newcastle blew the chance to move away from the relegation zone as Wolves fought back to a 1-1 draw at St James’ Park. Finding the net has been the big problem for Steve Bruce, with no Premier League ground seeing fewer goals than the four St James' Park had seen going into the weekend.
Preston moved up to second after coming back from two goals down against Blackburn in a Lancashire derby. The hosts were booed off at half-time after conceding two with no reply, but a Daniel Johnson penalty and brace from Barkhuizen completed the comeback for Preston.
Middlesbrough couldn’t beat 10 man Fulham meaning they languish in the Championship’s bottom three. Boro have scored just three goals in their previous six games, and drew another blank despite Fulham being down to 10 men after just 17 minutes.
Sunderland entered the weekend on the back of a 5-0 midweek victory over Tranmere, but were humbled with a 1-0 defeat to Shrewsbury. The Black Cats are three points outside the playoffs, while the Shrews now trail them by a single point.
