October Player of the Month Update
Unfortunately, with no Premier League games being played over the last week due to international fixtures, there’s no update to be made to the October Player of the Month tracker.

Marquee Matchups Week 5 Prediction
We’ve been doing very well recently with our Marquee Matchups Predictions, predicting 2.5/4 games last week. This week features a more standard Marquee Matchups selection, with domestic football back under way.
Manchester United - Liverpool
We’re all familiar with the rivalry between these two big clubs. With Liverpool storming ahead in the league, and Man Utd somewhat struggling, could the Red Devils put a spanner in the works in Klopp’s title bid?
Borussia Dortmund - Borussia Mönchengladbach
The Borussen Derby looks to be a likely inclusion in Marquee Matchups this week, and with only 4 points separating the two teams, this could be a vital game at the top of the Bundesliga.
Atlético Madrid - Valencia CF
An inclusion from La Liga is a likelihood this week. Being top clubs, and with only 3 points separating them, Atletico - Valencia looks like a solid potential inclusion
Central Coast - Newcastle Jets
Being the oldest derby in Australian football, the D3 Derby looks to be a great potential inclusion, and would be the “lower-tier” option that EA like to throw into Marquee Matchups from time to time.
