It's Christmas, we have to have a little game on one of the biggest sporting days of the year!
I hope you guys who are celebrating this weekend have had a lovely time with your families, I think my Leeds players will have had a little extra time with their families this Christmas as our game against Liverpool is postponed today, best thing that could happen with all the injuries we have had and poor run of results.
Liverpool will wait till another day! A new year beckons and we'll be top half by the end of the season, you mark my words!
Anyway, on to today, and one of the games that hasn't been postponed is...
This could be a very interesting game as no one seems to have a clue who'll be playing and who is in quarantine due to having, or having had close contact with Covid!
Anyway, Chelsea have been struggling lately for the first time under Thomas Tuchel and if they don't win today, it will be the first time they haven't won in 3 games. Villa however, are finally gelling and getting a few decent results and some really strong performances.12 points from a possible 18 in the last six games suggests Stevie Gerrard is getting the tea sorted and working together as a unit to eke out the results.
I'm fancying a draw here...
Prediction: Aston Villa 1 : 1 Chelsea - First Goalscorer: Mount
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 GMT
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 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.
Well that's it guys. Get your predictions in and have a chance to win!
Thanks for joining in and best wishes to everyone for the holidays and New Year.
