A Man Utd v Liverpool derby, an ODI series decider and a new Six Nations champions crowned - it really was quite the weekend of sporting action. That meant we paid out plenty in prizes, with a load more on the way to a lucky few after tonight’s Stoke v Man City clash, to round off Matchday 30 of the Premier League.

 

Here’s a look at how our Premier League pools stand heading into Monday Night Football:

 

Premier League Coupon: The winner of the biggest share of the £500 guaranteed is dependant on tonight’s result. A routine Man City win at Stoke will see current leader Tristan Chaplin scoop £200, while a draw will see ragi1978 and hippodrome share first prize. A draw will move ragi1978 onto 23 points, while hippodrome would score 10 points with a stalemate their Banker, to move from 24th to joint first. An unlikely Stoke win will see HanFDog storm up the standings from 34th to first, with a home victory worth 18 points as Banker. Tristan Chaplin leads the way thanks to eight correct predictions, including scoring six points for Banking a Man Utd win against Liverpool, three points after Burnley’s victory at West Ham, and a point a piece as Chelsea, Arsenal and Spurs picked up maximum points.

 

Fantasy 5-A-Side: Withnail160 is looking good to get his hands on the £50 first prize, with Kurt Zouma set to play in tonight's game, and will score double points for a possible clean sheet and for each tackle made. Third place mfcgadge could catch him if Leroy Sane continues his fine form to make up an 11 point gap, while Kierrr in fourth needs Kyle Walker to come good and score 13 or more points. Withnail leads the way thanks to Jordan Pickford scoring 16 points after keeping a clean sheet in Everton’s 2-0 win against Brighton, while a Kenedy double for Newcastle against Southampton added 24. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored 28 points as Banker, after scoring in Arsenal’s 3-0 victory against Watford.

 

Pick of the Match Pools: Man Utd put themselves in a strong position for Champions League qualification with an important 2-1 victory at home to bitter rivals Liverpool. In his first league start since December, Marcus Rashford scored twice inside the first 25 minutes to put United in a comfortable position. It could easily have been 3-0 before Liverpool started to play their way back into contention, with an Eric Bailly own goal giving them a chance but they couldn’t find their way past a stubborn defence. Mick Collins won just under £40, with correct predictions including Banking an own goal to be scored and for Antonio Valencia to be booked.

 

It was an Old Firm thriller as ten-man Celtic came from behind to beat Rangers 3-2 at Ibrox. Tom Rogic levelled after an early Josh Windass opener, before Daniel Candeias put the hosts back in front, but Moussa Dembele equalised just before the break. Jozo Simunovic was sent off shortly before Odsonne Edouard won the game for Celtic. The Yog was victorious in our Match Pool, for Banking five or more goals to be scored, picking Celtic to win and a red card to be shown.

 

Six Nations Predictor & Match Pools: England surrendered their Six Nations crown as a 22-16 win for France handed Ireland the title. The game was well poised at 9-9 until Anthony Watson’s high tackle saw him sin-binned and a penalty try awarded. A late Jonny May try gave England hope but France held on to deny Eddie Jones’ men. The Yog continued their winning run by finishing top in this one, after Banking a France victory and eight or nine penalties to be scored. GeriantR was victorious in our week 4 Predictor, with six correct predictions including Banking 13-15 tries to be scored in total.

 

New Zealand v England 5th ODI Pick 5 & Predictor: England eased to a seven wicket victory in the deciding ODI to take the series 3-2. Three wickets a piece for Chris Woakes and Adil Rashid reduced New Zealand to just 223, despite a battling 67 from Mitchell Santner. England made light work of the below-par total, thanks to Jonny Bairstow smashing 104 off just 60 balls as his side cantered home with more than 17 overs to spare. Dodger won our £2 Fantasy Pick 5, with Bairstow scoring 179 and Woakes adding 226 as Banker. LufcGazza picked up just under £20 for winning our 5th ODI Predictor, thanks to picking England to win and Bairstow to score the most runs.
