Rather unusually for a Thursday night, there's a Premier League game on tonight, and it's quite an important one!
After last nights results, Liverpool are left in 4th place, six points off the top spot after a poor run of form and Burnley sit languishing one place above the relegation zone. There's everything to play for!
As for our last game, it ended 2-0 and we had a couple of winners. Full details at the end...
There's just an element of desperation creeping in for Liverpool I feel and their next couple of games might be the ones that define their season. Apart from Jota who is a long term absentee, they have no new injury worries and with a full squad to choose from, Klopp really ought to be setting them up for a very strong, morale-boosting performance.
Burnley have been turning in their predictable, hard-working performances without setting the world alight but do have the excellent (former Leeds academy player) Charlie Taylor who trashed his career by leaving us for Burnley! As for former Leeds goalkeeper, Bailey Peacock-Farell , he is self-isolating so to be fair, he is doing them a favour!
Liverpool 5 Burnley 0. Mane to score first. This is going to be a hiding for Burnley!
Simply write the name of the FIRST GOALSCORER and the CORRECT SCORE as a comment. Competition closes 5 minutes before kick-off which is 20.00 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 goalscorer 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 45 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 payouts will never exceed 50% of post payout. Other bonuses paid out at my discretion.
And the winners were...
The result was 2-1, the first goalscorer was Bowen, so let's have a scan down the list...
Correct score winners: @ralph75, @lebey1, @amr008, so you guys pick up (5000/3)+500= errrr OK looks like 2200 to me! No one got the first goalscorer so that will carry over.
Appearance fees go to...
@bitandi, @anderssinho, @hykss.sports, @marvinix, @jfang003 and @jersteemit pick up their 500 tokens
Well done to everyone and thanks as always for playing along. If my old brain has missed anyone or cocked up, please let me know in comments!
Stay safe and sane out there.
