Beaten by the same scoreline for the second week in a row. Four losses on the bounce. I’m on a bad run of form in Premier League predictions at the moment, as Jake Moore defeated me 5-2 last week, with his three correct results and one correct score getting the better of my two correct results. It leaves the leaderboard looking like this, with my average continuing to fall…

  1. Mitch Clarke, Paul Merson – 7
  2. Tom Malley, Kieran Rawnsley, Dan Moran, Josh Pound, Kallum Mehta, Phil Beresford – 6
  3. Olly (average) – 5.41
  4. Felipe Alviar-Baquero, Laith Amiry, Harry Blacknell, Oscar Hayes, Jack Beresford, Jake Moore – 5
  5. My Dad, Josh Nicholson, Mark Lawrenson, FIFA 16 – 4
  6. Benjamin Wills, Jason Roberts – 3
  7. Kyle Goldsmith, Thomas Fletcher – 2
  • Olly’s Total = 119
  • Guests’ Total = 106

This week I’m taking on a man who I interviewed a few days ago – William Troost-Ekong, who plays for Norwegian side FK Haugesund and the Nigerian national team, and also happens to be a relative of mine. He was formerly part of Tottenham’s youth academy, so it’s no surprise that he’s predicted a win for the North London side! How will he fare compared to the three ex-professionals I have taken on so far this season – Jason Roberts (2 points), Mark Lawrenson (4 points) and Paul Merson (7 points – top of the leaderboard)? That’s certainly a range of scores, so let’s see how myself and William thought this weekend’s Premier League games would end up…
