Who's topped the board after one game
Of the 19 sides entered in the competition, seven correctly guessed Stoke would beat Burnley 2-0, earning a huge 20 points, yet all 19 had predicted a Potters victory.
Of the 12 who didn't predict the correct score 9 correctly predicted that either Stoke would score 2 or that Burnley wouldn't find the net, earning 2 bonus points, meaning they picked up 7 points whilst 3 players picked up just the 5 points for the correct result.
Early leaders are Knoweyedeer, PotterUntd, Whitehill Casuals, TBC(M.Young), Yyy05, The Might Plotters and Peckham Pouncers whilst the bottom 3 positions are taken up by the oracle, TBC(N.Frost) and Manila Maniacs.
Predictions for Liverpool on Wednesday may be more spread out and produce a more open table as the magnificent seven aim to continue their perfect records.
