Predict the Premier League: Wigan top the table

Bookmark and Share

Wigan may have lost yesterday at Anfield but Latics fan Jimmy Shine was top dog last weekend in our Predict the Premier League competition.

Mr Shine was the only pundit to hit double points. His haul came courtesy of two correct scores - Everton 2 Sunderland 1 and Man City 2 Spurs 1 - and four correct results at Reading, Southampton, Aston Villa and Chelsea.

In a week when Arsenal, Chelsea and Newcastle cost pundits crucial points, seven points proved to be the average score.

Tottenham's Adam Crawford, who only got his scores in for the Sunday games, propped up the table with one point and was joined in the bottom three by Newcastle's Greg Hall and Reading's Jon Keen, both on four points.

Arsenal v Fulham

Five pundits predicted a draw here and they would have been hailing Mark Schwarzer for his late penalty save. Fulham's Neil Springate, Newcastle's Greg Hall, Norwich City's Sue Read, Southampton's Nigel Adkins and Stoke's Jack Heaney all picked up a point for their bravery.

Everton v Sunderland

The Toffees were huge favourites for the points here and they secured the win after coming back from a goal down. A total of 16 pundits picked up a point here, only Wigan's Jimmy Shine got the 2-1 scoreline spot on.

Reading v Norwich City

Half of our pundits went for a draw here, but only one got the goalless draw correct. Well done Manchester United's Alex Richert.

Southampton v Swansea City

Another game which favoured a draw, eight people thought the honours would be shared here. Five of them got the score spot on.

Stoke City v QPR

The Potters were expected to see off the struggling R's and they did just that, but only just. Charlie Adam scored the only goal of the game giving 12 of our competitors points, three of whom picked up full marks.

Wigan v West Brom

The Baggies may be flying high in the table but there wasn't a lot of love for them to leave the DW Stadium with maximum points. Only six pundits went for an away win. Nobody expected it to end 1-2.

Aston Villa v Manchester United

Paul Lambert's men were on the verge of a historic win but you can never count out Fergie's men. Only three pundits expected anything other than an away win here and they were thankful when Hernandez did his thing. However, no-one got the final score correct.

Manchester City v Spurs

The champions went behind to Spurs but came back, yet again, to seal all three points. Fifteen pundits predicted a home win, but Dzeko's late winner gave seven of them maximum points.

Newcastle United v West Ham United

According to our panel there was more chance of Britney Spears coming out as a Newcastle fan than there was of West Ham beating the Mags at St James' Park. Not one single pundit expected the Hammers to win here. More fool them.

Chelsea v Liverpool

Liverpool had lost only one of their last six meetings with Chelsea but only two people thought the Reds could leave Stamford Bridge with a point. Step forward Reading's Jon Keen and Wigan's Jimmy Shine, both of whom went for a 2-2 draw.

Here is a rundown of who scored what in Game Week 11.
