Last week's derby match with Sunderland brought a new low for the CHN Predictions League, as winner 51dimes took home the prize with a 3 point performance. This week's match with Arsenal looks just as difficult to predict, which means there's a great opportunity for somebody to move up the table with a fine performance. There are 11 matches left in the season, which means it's still anybody's game. Could you be the CHNPL winner? You cannot win if you do not play. Rules and current table follow the jump.

Rules

  • Before the game, predict the winner (or you can predict a draw), the final score, and goalscorers. The deadline will be 5 minutes before kick-off (1155 GMT on Sunday).
  • Predicting the outcome correctly will give you 1 point.
  • Predicting the exact score will give you 5 points. Failing to predict the exact score but getting the total number of goals correct will give you 1 point, as will predicting one half of the score. If you predict a total of 6 goals or more, you are ineligible to receive points for predicting the correct goalscorers (see below). However, if 6 goals or more are actually scored, the ineligibility will be lifted. This new rule is designed to prevent people from predicting an abnormally high score in order to better their chances of earning the bonus for predicting the scorers.
  • For each goal scorer you pick correctly, you earn 2 points. You may not pick more scorers than you did goals in order to hedge your bets. (In other words, if you predict a 1-0 score, you can only choose one scorer.)
