There were some odd results in Round 02 which kept the overall points scoring low.

Odd Results Keep Points Low
Round 02’s top scorer was the always consistent Martin Hayman with just twelve points. I say ‘just’ twelve points because in Round 01 that score was equaled or bettered by seven players! A couple of odd results helped to keep Round 02 scores down, notably Brighton beating Man Utd at Falmer Stadium (all players scored nil) and Man City winning 6-1 at home against Huddersfield (no three-pointers in this one).
Monday Night Football
Martin’s two point lead was brought about by being the only player to correctly predict Liverpool would beat Palace 2-0 in the Monday Night Football match, though Mane’s goal was very late. Had Mane not scored that goal then we would have had a four-way tie at the top and Jemma Gibbons would have been the only player with an exact prediction in that match – fine lines!
Round 03 Fixtures
Round 03 will follow the now traditional fixture list format of Premier League football. It all kicks-off on Saturday lunchtime (12:30) with Man City hammering another inadequate opponent in the form of Wolves, ahead of four 3 o’clock matches. These are followed by B&HA looking to take their second big scalp in-a-row in the shape of Liverpool (BT Sport, 17:30).
“Lads, it’s Tottenham.”
Sir Alex Fergsuon, as Manchester United Manager
Sunday brings three matches including just one at lunchtime – Watford v Palace. Unusually there are two matches at 4pm, including the televised (Sky Sports) Newcastle v Chelsea. Monday Night Football sees the declining Man Utd take on the soaring Tottenham and I’m pretty sure Mourinho won’t be saying “lads, it’s Tottenham” as his team talk!
Twenty Point Jackpot
With so many unusual results in Round 02, the Twenty Point Jackpot wasn’t worried at all about being won – therefore the jackpot will be £3 for Round 03. Don’t forget, the Twenty Point Jackpot will continue to increase by £1 for every Round nobody scores twenty points.
Did you know… if the Twenty Point Jackpot had been introduced at the start of Premier Predictions seven years ago, it would be up to around £250 now?!
