"Jamie Vardy Missed A Penalty"
Not something you hear every day but you did last night as Leicester hosted Spartak Moscow in this important Group C clash.
That was a disappointing 1-1 result for Leicester as they badly needed a win and with just two games left, they are left third in Group C in a very tight group.
Leicester had the vast majority of possession without looking overly threatening and it was the Russians in the shape of Moses who got the opener, a few minutes half time.
Leicester equalised a few minutes later but the talking point was the terribly timid Vardy penalty in the 75th minute which might have just consigned Leicester to a group stage exit.
Anyway, its Friday night and we're back to Premier League action in a rather uninspiring game between...
Southampton have started firing after a very poor start taking seven points from the last three games and moving up to 14th in an ever-tightening mid-table.
Villa, after rebuilding during the close season, including buying Southampton's top scorer, Danny Ings, all with the proceeds from the Jack Grealish sale but after promising signs have sunk to 15th, just one place above Southampton but they've now lost four in a row and have a terrible injury list.
With it seemingly the start of the silly season as far as manager sackings are concerned, Villa boss Dean Smith is going to be surely looking over his shoulder.
Prediction: Southampton 1 : 1 Aston Villa - First goal scorer: Broja

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.
And the winners were...
That's it for today, thanks as always for playing and have a very happy Friday. The weekend begins here!
