Full times are in.

GTFC 3 V Leeds Utd 0

A Godden strike set GTFC on their way in what turned out to be a commanding performance in which Leeds were largely chasing shadows. Woods doubled their lead on 49 minutes and Doyle completed the solid display on 68 minutes. GTFC seem to have adjusted now and are playing some impressive stuff.

Man Utd 0 V Stoke City 2

Another disappointing Utd display was capitalised on by Stoke who seemed to have left off from the weekend. Goals from Vokes (56 min) and McLean 10 minutes later ensured another disappointing home display from the Reds and sees Stoke move from the bottom of the table.

Chelsea 1 V Leicester 1

A Kante goal and against the run of play 10 minutes before half time seemed to slow Leicester down. Although they came out for the second with a refreshed belief and a cleverly worked Iheanacho goal on 65 minutes ensured a point for the foxes. It could have been more had Vardy finished a good solo run, but shot wide with minutes to go.

Everton 0 V Aston Villa 2

A Samatta effort was spilled by Pickford and Wesley was able to convert the follow up a third of the way into the first half. Everton pressure did follow, but Heaton was winning the battle of the national keepers and with an interested Gareth Southgate in the crowd. The defeat see the toffees sink to the bottom of the table and pressure mounting on Ancelotti.

The league almost at the halfway point is starting to take shape and Villa are building a lead.

With nearly half the season gone, Villa look like early contenders but it's still all to play for.
Man utd can't seem to score but hopefully, Rashford will back to full fitness for the next game...:whistle:

We could do with something like a Virus to stop this league now

I ran the suggestion past the committee Mick and in such an event of that, as long as its one of the specified teams who may at whatever point be winning the league (in this league and with these teams that is 87.5% of them) the league will be awarded to any one of those teams who may be top at that point.

He wasn't registered in time, but there is a two day window. Midnight 20th April to Midnight 22nd April where people can request any players that were already featured in their teams actual squad, but weren't registered for this. Some swaps if you like, a request from a fan of that team is all that is needed (within that timeframe) to do some changes.

3 Leeds Utd V Leicester City 1

The game started with a minutes applause for the late Norman Hunter and players from both sides honouring the occasion by wearing black arm bands. After a slow start to the game with each side sizing up each other, Leicester won a fortunate corner, when it did look like the ball had clipped Vardy’s leg on its way out. Evans leapt above his marker to head in from the corner. This seemed to spur Leeds into life and Bamford levelled with a clever finish a few minutes before the break. Following recent weeks where one or two felt that Bamford hadn’t fully recovered from his injury, he demonstrated by completing his hatrick and wrapping up the Leeds win, that even an off par Bamford is still a potent threat. He completed some good build up play on 61 minutes with another neat finish and beat the off-side trap on 74 minutes to run in and wrong foot Schmeichel, to keep Leeds well placed for a push on for the title in the second half of the season and on a day where Leeds marked it with a solid display that Norman would have been proud of.

0 Everton V Man Utd 0

The league’s lowest scorers to date, will wonder how they didn’t improve their goals counts following some generosity afforded them by Everton in terms of possession in the opening part of the game. With their hosts in recent times not making Goodison a happy hunting ground, Utd seemed ill prepared and taken by surprise during the opening spells and weren’t tactically set up to sustain pressure. Everton however, as the game progressed seemed to isolate Fernandez and with this, limited Utd in terms of any threat. Where Utd have progressed however with stiffening up the defence, was further demonstrated by a solid display from the back four, with Everton not getting any change out of Shaw or Bassaka particularly, Lindelof and McGuire then tidying up anything funnelled centrally. This will be a small positive that Ole can take from the performance however, as the pro Pogba camp may have more evidence to suggest that Utd are currently a little too predictable with most of their play going through Fernandez.

0 Aston Villa V Chelsea 0

The league leaders were looking to add to their lead at the top and named the same side from mid-week that had dominated Everton for such large periods. Both sides however seemed a little stale in a game that offered very little aside from an interesting midfield battle, that along with the game, neither team won.

0 Stoke City V GTFC 0

Stoke will have been the happier of the two sides at the final whistle given recent form and also after how they survived long periods of probing GTFC football. Ward did seem to have been given the role of marking the in-form Godden and he stuck to the task well, limiting him to just the one speculative effort from 25 yards, this was the one occasion where he had managed to be facing goal after being largely reduced to off-loading the ball. Stoke could have stolen what would have been a surprising win given the form of both sides, when in the 91st minute, Vokes tapped in, only for VAR to have ruled it off-side, a resulting melee on and off the pitch saw the Stoke manager given a red card, with Vokes and McLean receiving yellows for their part in the scuffles on the pitch. GTFC’s minds will have already turned to the visit of Man Utd in the midweek round 8 of fixtures, with the season passing the halfway point, they look very well placed to mount a charge for the title.
