It seems like there's no stopping Tommy Smyth as he storms to yet another victory - and he's now guaranteed to be top at Christmas.
The Rest of the World will hope to avoid the festive wooden spoon, and will need to win this weekend's round to send Dale Johnson tumbling to the foot of the table.
Showdown is coming home to the UK for Christmas as Latoya Woolery steps forward for the ROTW.
Latoya tells us: "I am a lifelong Manchster United fan and I am 25 years old. I work at the University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire as a Cardiac Physiologist and will be working over Christmas so will unfortunately miss a few games over the 'holidays'!"
For each round of matches we invite someone to represent the Rest of the World and take on Press Pass' Tommy Smyth and ESPN journalist Dale Johnson in our predictions game.
Points are then awarded as follows:
• Three points for a correct result and scoreline
• One point for a correct result
After the weekend's scores are in and the Showdown result has been worked out, the winning pundit receives three points for their season's total. Should the challenger win, the total is added to the Rest of the World tally. In the case of a draw, the points are shared.
A correct scoreline at Upton Park proved to be crucial for Latoya and the points go to the Rest of the World - much needed!
