For the third time this season, my guest and I drew 6-6 in Premier League predictions, as last week Kallum Mehta nearly beat me before my perfect prediction for Leicester’s 2-1 win over Chelsea on Monday levelled things up. It meant that I finished with four correct results and one correct score, whilst Kallum got exactly the same combination. Here’s how the leaderboard now looks…

  1. Mitch Clarke – 7
  2. Olly (average), Tom Malley, Kieran Rawnsley, Dan Moran, Josh Pound, Kallum Mehta – 6
  3. Felipe Alviar-Baquero, Laith Amiry, Harry Blacknell – 5
  4. My Dad, Josh Nicholson, Mark Lawrenson – 4
  5. Benjamin Wills, Jason Roberts – 3
  6. Kyle Goldsmith, Thomas Fletcher – 2
  • Olly’s Total = 99
  • Guests’ Total = 74

This week, for the first time, my challenger is not a real person. Instead, I’m taking on FIFA 16, a game that I play regularly, and one that is supposed to be very realistic. To test that out, I simulated all 10 of this weekend’s Premier League games, and here’s how they thought they would end up, as well as my predictions of course…

Chelsea vs Sunderland – Saturday 3pm

  • Olly’s Prediction: 1-0
  • FIFA 16’s Prediction: 3-1
  • Final Score: 3-1
