Predict the Premier League - the Experts: Blackburn, Leicester and Pompey share top spot
Blackburn, Leicester and Portsmouth all shared mixed results at the weekend, but Terry Kennedy, Chris Pettitt and Dan Taylor can all celebrate today as they were our top pundits this week in the Experts section of our Predict the Premier League competetion.
In what was a low scoring week across the board, all three picked up top marks of six points, while eight of us scored eight or fewer.
Here is a breakdown of the results.
Five Experts tipped West Ham to beat Fulham, and the Hammers - inspired by the arrival of Andy Carroll obliged - beating the Cottagers 3-0. West Ham's Mitch Waddon, Pompey's Dan Taylor, Hammer Nigel Telfer, Wolves fan Chris Cox and editor Antony Melvin all got the result right, but no-one correctly predicted the final score.
Swansea were well backed to make it three wins out of three against Sunderland at the Liberty Stadium but the Swans had to come from behind twice to grab a share of the spoils. Squarefootball's Hugh Larkin, Leicester's Chris Pettitt and Pompey's Peter Rendle were the only ones to predict a draw, although they didn't expect the sides to share four goals.
Spurs were expected to pick up their first win of the season against Norwich but the Canaries left with a point after a valiant display. Only Dan Taylor predicted the draw, picking up three points for his 1-1 forecast.
Everton were another team expected to pick up three points this weekend when they took on West Brom at the Hawthorns, but Steve Clarke's men ran out 2-0 winners. Only three pundits predicted a home win, Sunderland's Sarshar Hosseinnia, Blackburn's Terry Kennedy and Middlesbrough's Sue Gardener. No-one expected Everton to shoot a blank though.
Wigan v Stoke was always going to be a hard one to predict and only three of us predicted a draw - Sarshar, Terry and Bolton's Dave Blackburn - but again no-one expected four goals to be shared.
Manchester City v QPR was a home banker and two of us - Mitch Waddon and Terry Kennedy - correctly predicted the 3-1 final score.
Liverpool entertained Arsenal and Brendan Rodgers' men were tipped for glory, but Arsenal picked up their first goals and victory of the season. Only two pundits went for an away win, Aberdeen's Colin Illingworth and Leicester's Chris Pettitt.
Newcastle were tipped to see off Villa quite comfortably but had to settle for a 1-1- draw. This result stumped all of our experts.
Finally Manchester United went to St Mary's and came away with a 3-2 win courtesy of Robin van Persie. Thirteen out of 14 experts picked up points here, but only Sarshar Hosseinnia had the foresight to predict a 3-2 away win.
