Predict the Premier League: Reading rise to the top
Reading may be incapable of holding on to a lead this season but Royals' fan Jon Keen at least has something to celebrate heading into the international weekend after topping our Predict the Premier League table for week seven.
Mr Keen scored an incredible 14 points, including three bonus correct scores, to go shooting up the overall table. His points haul came courtesy of correct scores at Swansea, 2-2 with Reading, Southampton, another 2-2 with Fulham, and Tottenham's 2-0 success over Aston Villa. His extra five points came thanks to wins for Manchester City, Chelsea, West Bro, Arsenal and Manchester United.
Fulham's Neil Springate, Swansea's Jim Barry and West Brom's Andy Wakeman were his nearest challengers, all ending the week on 12 points.
At the other end, QPR's John Jaycock slipped to the bottom after failing to get his scores in on time. He was joined in the bottom three by Norwich City's Sue Read (4) and Manchester City's Callum Rothwell (5). Staying out of the drop zone alphabetically is Liverpool's Dave Discaiscio.
Here is who scored what:
Manchester City v Sunderland
Out of the 19 pundits who took part this past weekend, only two thought the Black Cats would leave with something. City went into the game having failed to keep a single clean sheet all season, but Mancini's men turned on the style and ran out 3-0 winners. Only two pundits got the score bang on - Tottenham's Mike Richards and West Brom's Andy Wakeman. A further 17 picked up a point.
Chelsea v Norwich City
This was a home banker all day long but I'm sure there were a few anxious moments for everyone when Grant Holt opened the scoring. Chelsea soon levelled and dominated the game to win 4-1. Only Norwich fan Sue Read thought the Canaries would leave the Bridge with at least a share of the spoils. Other than that, the rest all picked up points, with Fulham's Neil Springate and Swansea's Jim Barry collecting maximum points.
Swansea v Reading
This was a hard one to call so congratulations to the four pundits who went for a draw. Chelsea's Joe Tyler and Southampton's Andy Saunders got the result right, but let's have a round of applause for Reading's Jon Keen and Swansea's Jim Barry for both predicting it would end 2-2.
West Brom v QPR
The R's arrived at the Hawthorns knowing that the Baggies had yet to concede a goal at home this season. Mark Hughes's men scored twice, but still ended up on the losing side. West Brom looked lively up front and deserved the 3-2 win. Fifteen of our 19 competitors this week fancied the Baggies. Unfortunately Granero's late strike denied four pundits maximum points.
Wigan v Everton
On paper this should have been an Everton win but Wigan pushed them all the way. In fact, Everton had to come from behind twice to get a point from this game. Only four pundits expected a draw, but three of them - Swansea's Jim Barry, West Ham's Matt Beeby and Wigan's Jimmy Shine went for 2-2.
West Ham v Arsenal
Not even the presence of Andy Carroll could stop the Gunners from picking up three points here. Again, 15 pundits expected the win with six of them - Arsenal's Josh Ben Moshe, Manchester United's Alex Richert, Southampton's Andy Saunders, Sunderland's Tony Ratton, Tottenham's Mike Richards and West Ham's Matt Beeby - getting the score spot on.
Southampton v Fulham
The Cottagers have only ever triumphed on Southampton soil once in their history but it looked like that was about to change when Richardson put them 2-1 up with just minutes remaining. However, defender Fonte scored his second of the match to deny Martin Jol's men a famous win. Six pundits expected this game to end as a draw, four of them - Fulham's Neil Springate, Reading's Jon Keen, Stoke's Jack Heaney and Wigan's Jimmy Shine - got the score bang on the money.
Liverpool v Stoke City
Liverpool were looking to record back-to-back league wins for the first time since December, but Stoke City were never going to roll over for the Reds. The game ended 0-0. Only three pundits expected that - Everton's Chris Goodwin, Newcastle's Greg Hall and Arsenal's Josh Ben Moshe, but only the latter got the score bang on the money.
Spurs v Aston Villa
This looked like a home win all day long and AVB's men didn't disappoint. They won 2-0 to the delight of all of our pundits bar Wigan's Jimmy Shine who predicted a draw. Arsenal's Josh Ben Moshe, Fulham's Neil Springate, Newcastle's Greg Hall, Reading's Jon Keen, Southampton's Andy Saunders, Stoke's Jack Heaney and West Ham's Matt Beeby all guessed the score correctly, picking up three points each.
Newcastle United v Manchester United
Finally Manchester United went to St James' Park to try and erase the memory of the Tottenham defeat and Newcastle's 3-0 drubbing in January. The Red Devils did it in style, running out comfy 3-0 winners. Only six of our representatives picked an away win, but only United's Alex Richert picked up maximum points for her prediction of 3-0.
