Predict the Premier League: Southampton march their way to the top
Southampton may have lost to both Manchester giants 3-2 in the Premier League and still be looking for their first points of the season, but Saints fan Andy Saunders is doing the business in our Predict the Premier League competition.
Mr Saunders was on the ball this past weekend, topping our table with nine points - thanks to correct correct scores at Swansea and Wigan alongside corrects results for West Ham, Manchester City and Manchester United.
He was a point better off than Norwich City fan Sue Read. She correctly predicted Swansea would draw 2-2 with Sunderland and her own Canaries' 1-1 draw at White Hart Lane. Her other two points came from the Etihad and St Mary's stadium as Man City and Manchester United emerged victorious.
It wasn't such a good week for Arsenal as Shub Chaterjee failed to get his scores in on time but six pundits - Aston Villa, Chelsea, Liverpool, Reading, Spurs and Wigan - could only manage two points each.
If any Arsenal fans reading this would like to replace Shub in our competition, please leave your details in the feedback form below and we will be in touch.
Here is who scored what this past week
And here is a brief summary on where they picked up their points.
West Ham took on Fulham at Upton Park, buoyed by the arrival of Andy Carroll and he didn't take long to make an impact, less than a minute in fact. Fulham couldn't cope with the big man and he bullied their back four until h came off injured. Only six pundits fancied a home win - Everton's Chris Goodwin, Man City's Callum Rothwell, Southamton's Andy Saunders, Sunderland's Tony Ratton and West Ham fan Matt Beeby - although no-one expected such a convincing scoreline.
Swansea and Sunderland locked horns at the Liberty and everyone thought an unbeaten record was about to be broken. However an action-packed 2-2 draw ensured both clubs remain undefeated. Seven of our pundits got the result correct with four of them - Norwich's Sue Read, QPR's John Jaycock, Southampton's Andy Saunders and Stoke's Jack Heaney - getting the score spot on.
Spurs and Norwich looked like a home win all day long, but Chris Hughton's men never roll over. The Canaries snatched a 1-1 draw to pile the pressure on AVB's head. Only one pundit got this score right, Norwich fan Sue Read, who believed the game wouuld finish 1-1.
West Brom and Everton was one of the games of the weekend as the Baggies sent the Toffees back to Merseyside with a bruised ego. Only two pundits tipped the Albion for a win, Manchester United's Alex Richert and Baggies fan Andy Wakeman, who got the score bang on.
Wigan and Stoke played out a four goal classic at the JJB. Again six pundits went for a draw, but the only one to get maximum points was Southamptn's Andy Saunders.
Manchester City were expected to make light work of QPR and they duly obliged. They ran out 3-1 winners to give our pundits a point. Everton's Chris Goodwin and West Brom's Andy Wakeman were the only two pundits to collect all three.
Liverpool were tipped to pile the pressure on Arsenal on Sunday but it tuned out to be a great away day for the visitors. Only Man City's Callum Rothwell and Albion's Andy Wwakeman predicted an away win the Gunners.
Newcastle were strong favourites for the points against rock bottom Aston Vill, but Lambert got the side working hard for one another and it almost paid dividends. Only a rasping drive from Hatem Ben Arfa denied Villa their first win of the season. Fulham's Neil Springate was the only pundit who didn't expect a Newcastle win. He picked up three points for his conviction.
Finally Southampton welcomed Manchester Unitd on Sunday expecting to shoc Fergie's men. They almost did. 2-1 up with five minutes to go, Robin van Persie was the hat-trick hero to keep United in touch with the leaders Chelsea.
So there you have it. Make sure you come back every Friday/Saturday/Sunday to discover who our pundits think will be the main winners and losers.
