++ QUADRUPLE POT! ++ Bonus HBI Shares ++ First Goal Scorer + Correct Score Comp. No 380: EPL Brighton v Arsenal - October 2nd 2021 - 5500 + 5500 SPS Tokens
A small shock in the Championship last night as table toppers and strong favourites for the game, West Bromwich Albion lost away at Stoke.
Stoke had been dominant throughout the game and it was looking very much like it wasn't to be their night before Nick Powell popped up with what turned out to be the winner in the 79th minute.
That's four goals in the last four games for him and six out of the last eight, the kind of statistics you need in a team hungry to make it back to the promised land of Premiership football.
HOW ABOUT A QUADRUPLE POT?
Here's the deal. If Man. U LOSE, I will double the pot. When Leeds win, I will double the pot. If Man.U lose AND Leeds win, I quadruple the pot!
Everything to play for gang!
Anyway, it's back to the Premier League today and anyone for Quadruple tokens?
A real test of Arsenal's new-found form and optimism as they visit a Brighton side who sit proudly in sixth place but on thirteen points, only one point off the top and they will be desperate to keep that form going with thoughts of Europe fluttering around inside their seagull brains!
Brighton though have injury problems. Danny Welbeck and Steven Alzate had to be brought off in the Palace game, which had they won instead of just managing a lte draw, would have put them at the top! Yves Bissouma has a dodgy knee and Enock Mwepu and Adam Webster have been long-term absentees.
Even so, they are going to be fired up for the visit of a rejuvenated Arsenal team who will be without Xhaka who injured his knee ligaments last week in the win over North London rivals, Spurs. They have plenty of squad depth to cover him though so I'd suggest their current rising stock will see them really give Brighton a fight.
Prediction: Brighton 0 : 3 Arsenal - First goal scorer: Smith-Rowe
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 17.30 BST (17.30 UTC)
The Small Print
In the first goal scorer 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 goal scorer 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 50 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 pay-outs will never exceed 50% of post pay-out. Other bonuses are paid out at my discretion.
And the Winners Were...
NO ONE! Like I said, it was a mini-shock but no worries, we have loads of tokens to play for today and the chance of quadrupling the jackpot!
That looks like that for today, lets hope scum get battered at home, again, by Everton today in the early kick-off. Enjoy your weekend guys and thanks for playing along.
