Happy New Year to everyone!!!!!
Week 1 of our EPL Last Man Standing was the first weekend of January 2021.
Unusually Crystal Palace were the pick of over 50 entries and this was probably down to them playing a very out of sorts Sheffield Utd. An Arsenal team returning to a bit of form had 28 people pick them, Man Utd & Spurs had 26 each. 21 entries selected Leicester who are now 3rd in the table after an excellent display…..
Unfortunately it wasn’t a week to have a Merseyside team as your selection, with both Liverpool & Everton suffering poor defeats at the hands of West Ham & Southampton respectively. Wolves letting slip a 3-1 lead also accounted for a few entires; 15 in total.
Any game that is cancelled that involves picks; those entries go forward to the next round but they cannot select those teams again. With Covid still an issue, there was one fixture that fell foul of cancellation; Burnely vs Fulham. The 15 people who had those teams as their selection in before the cancellation are now into Week 2.
Full entries for Week 1 are here….
Remember as it’s Week 1, you can Buy-Back into the competition in Week 2, the only time you can do that.
Just shy of 70 entries have this option for Week 2; just make sure to specify BUYBACK with your pick for Week 2.
Week 2 is the weekend after next; next weekend is the FA Cup and the mid-week games on the 12th, 13th & 14th January don’t make up a full game week. So Week 2 is the fixtures of Friday 15th to Monday 18th January.
Fulham v Chelsea
Wolves v West Brom
West Ham v Burnley
Leeds Utd v Brighton
Aston Villa v Everton
Leicester v Southampton
Sheffield Utd v Tottenham Hotspur
Liverpool v Man Utd
Man City v Crystal Palace
Arsenal v Newcastle
A massive thanks to everyone who entered the competition, we really appreciate your support!!! Also a big thanks to all those who sold entries.
Good luck everyone………..
