I do feel for Fulham after yesterday's defeat at the hands of Villa. They were holding on right until the last 10 minutes when 3 goals in as many minutes sunk their dreams of edging closer to Premier League safety!
Grealish was a surprising omission considering all the press had speculated he'd be back but it all worked out well after Trezuguet came on as an inspired 62nd-minute substitution and got a brace. No winners again for the team yesterday but it's nice to see the jackpots are building up and so for today, let's take a look at...
A very tricky encounter at a very strange 20.25 kick-off time. In the battle for the European places, it's very tight with three teams sat on 49 points, including West Ham with this game in hand so a win would put them into 4th place. Motivation indeed if any were needed. Wolves are probably safe from relegation with very little to play for other than pride and at this point in the season, I wonder how players lift themselves to maintain a peak level of performance.
20 goals separate their respective goal differences and Wolves seem to have struggled at home in this strange clinically clean season and in the reverse fixture got hammered 4-0
####Prediction: Wolves 1 : 3 West Ham - First Goalscorer: Lingard
Simply write the name of the FIRST GOALSCORER and the CORRECT SCORE as a comment. The competition closes 5 minutes before kick-off which is 20.15 BST
The Small Print
In the first goalscorer competition, own goals do not count. In the correct score competition, it's the score after 90mins. Extra time and penalties do not count and the pot for each competition will roll over if there is no winner. If more than one person chooses the same first goalscorer or correct score, the prize is shared and everyone gets a little upvote! It seems I also need to add, one entry per person. Don't forget the new rule that only people with a rep of 45 or above are eligible to enter unless they have been approved. The bonus will be added to any winnings ONLY if Leeds United win and/or Man U lose and all payouts will never exceed 50% of post payout. Other bonuses paid out at my discretion.
The Winners were...
My wallet has been having a nice little run and as I said at the top, there were no winners of the correct score or the first goalscorer and so Appearance fees go out to:-
