143 started but after round 1 just 126 remain. 17 players were eliminated due to Wolves surprise failure to beat lowly Huddersfield. Some of the players took calculated punts on Southampton, Newcastle & Chelsea that paid off. The 38 players on Man City were made to sweat until the very last minute as they ground out a 1-0 win at home to West Ham. Round 2 starts this Saturday. The remaining players need to text or Whatsapp their picks by 9pm on Friday. This week’s games – Spurs v Arsenal, Bournemouth v Man City, Brighton v Huddersfield, Burnley v Palace, Man Utd v Southampton, Wolves v Cardiff, West Ham v Newcastle, Watford v Leicester, Fulham v Chelsea, Everton v Liverpool. Good luck.
