Another £25 up for grabs this month

Remember, £25 is up for grabs again in November for the month’s top-scoring player. 

Points scored in each round go towards a season’s total, where the highest-scoring player will pocket the £250 prize in May. 

The competition is free to enter, no registration is required and with 48 points up for grabs each round, it won’t take long to catch up if you’re only now deciding to get involved. 

November tiebreaker (needed for all round 13 entries): How many corners will be taken in the Premier League in November? (36 matches)*

* In the event of a tie for the month’s top-scoring £25 prize, the tiebreaker will be used to determine who wins the money. 

It will be given to the player with the closest guess to the actual amount of corners that are taken in all of the month’s matches.

Statistically speaking

• October saw the highest return of away teams collecting more corners from the 16 chosen matches. This happened on six occasions.

• A total of 19 corners in a match remains the highest amount. This happened twice during October (Scotland v San Marino and Arsenal v Bournemouth). The only other time it has occurred was in round six when Norwich hosted Manchester City.

• Manchester United v Liverpool, Wolves v Southampton and West Ham v Crystal Palace (all four) provided the lowest corner count of any selected fixture in the competition. All of these matches took place during last month’s set of rounds.

• Mike Griggs (with three) has been a top-scorer in more rounds than any entrant. However, he only sits joint seventh in the standings. Everyone above him in the table has won at least one round. 

• From the 16 chosen games, an average of 12 (when rounded up) corners were taken. This is one more than the average for August and September. 

• The highest scoring October effort came via round 12 winner Alex Thaxton. He collected 24 points out of a possible 48. 

• Laura Shreeve’s 32 points in round three remains the top-scoring performance so far.

• Our columnist Gavin Caney moved up five places (from 20th to 15th) as a result of his October efforts.
