*** CLOSED - SEE MY RESULTS POST BELOW ***

Please submit your predictions as follows:

(1) Predict the score, Villa vs United (e.g. 1-0, 2-2, 1-2)

(2) Fantasy Three

(2a) Choose your three fantasy players (the players on the United side you believe will win most fantasy football points for this game):
*** NOTE *** -- Your fantasy 3 must comprise 1 defender or keeper, 1 midfielder and 1 forward, according to the following:
Defenders/keepers: De Gea, Romero, Grant, Kovar, Wan Bissaka, Williams, Maguire, Lindelof, Jones, Rojo, Shaw, Tuanzebe, Bailly, Dalot, Laird, Bernard, Taylor, Mengi.
Midfielders: Fernandes, Pogba, McTominay, Fred, Pereira, Mata, Matic, Garner, Levitt, Lingard, Chong, Gomes, Galbraith, Puigmal
Forwards: Ighalo, Rashford, Martial, Greenwood, James, Mellor

(2b) Choose a backup selection in case any of the above 3 do not take part in the game at all (they MUST be in the same category as the player who isn't selected, e.g. if you choose DDG, Pogba and Rashford with a sub of Martial and Pogba doesn't play, you will only score points for DDG and Rashford).


(3) Match Special Prediction

Which will be higher? You get 5 points for each correct answer and 25 bonus if you get all five. If they are equal you get the points whichever you chose.

3a) Number of shots saved by De Gea or number of yellow cards conceded by United?
3b) Number of corners or number of free kicks won by United?
3c) Shirt number of first goalscorer or minute of first goal? (both sides)
3d) Age of first goalscorer or total shots (on or off target) in game? (both sides)
3e) Shots on target by Grealish or shots on target by Pogba?


Here is an example of how your post would look:

(1) 0-3
(2a) DDG, Bruno, Rashford
(2b) McTominay
(3a) shots saved
(3b) free kicks
(3c) Minute
(3d) Shots
(3e) Pogba

Cutoff time for entries: 19.15 BST Thursday or when team is announced, whichever is sooner.

You can edit your predictions any time until the team is announced.

Good luck!

Query!
Question 3d.
total shot of both teams or first goalscorers team’s total shot only?
Eg: if greenwood scores first, age 18. Total Manu shot 10 + total Aston Villa shot 9 = total shots 19
So correct ans is shots. Am I correct?

KP1980 won this one with 46 points and closed the gap on Dinesh at the top to 40 points. Zack is also making ground after a good score of 42. KP's percent was 56, so not enough for the single week leaderboard.

It has been brought to my attention that Transfermarkt.com have amended the total shots figures since I posted the results, and the figure is now 25, which equals Bruno Fernandes' age, so I have adjusted the scores accordingly with everyone now getting 5 pts for 3d.

This means the winner is Zack with 47 points (57% of total poss).

Here are the scores:

Fantasy:
Bruno 14
Pogba 10
Greenwood 7
DDG, Maguire, Lindelof, Shaw, Martial 6
AWB 5
Matic, Rashford 2
Williams, James, Mctominay, Ighalo 1

3a) CARDS (3 vs 1)
3b) FREE KICKS (7 vs 5)
3c) MINUTE (27 vs 18)
3d) SHOTS OR AGE (25 vs 25)
3e) POGBA (1 vs 0)

One issue I noticed in 3e is that according to whoscored.com, Grealish had 2 shots, 0 on target, which is odd as I swear DDG saved a shot from him. But I have to go with the official stats so unlucky those who chose Grealish on that one, as Pogba only had one so it would have been a draw.

Anyway, here are the results:

1. Zack2108
47​
2. KP1980
46​
3= Dinesh Murugaiah
41​
3= KtNextGen
41​
5. SEB
40​
6. Stevie Gs Red Card
37​
7. Cal
36​
8. Aarondavidmitch
33​

Thanks guys!
