The secret of this competition appears to be just hoping that there’s one team who performed worse that yours did.  Rather like we are looking at the real life table at present.
Last week, that team was (un)comfortably less successful and this week is much the same.  Pleasingly, though, (well it pleases me), our top performer this week had been the one hoping in each of the last 2 weeks, in fact this week’s score was slightly less than the previous 2 weeks’ score added together.

This week’s details, then:

Week 22

Average Score: 56.44 (18 participants) – overall competition average 46
Highest Score: 75 – overall competition high score 116
Lowest Surviving Score: 45

Eliminated this week:

35 No Hopers (Richard Lake)

Surviving this week:

45 The Hornet Boys (John Harvey)
One other score below 50.

Top scorer this week with 75 points : Off to Okavanga (Derek Fabb).

Remaining Teams 17.

So what happened? Well, this was Richard’s team:
GK
De Gea (Man Utd) : 2 points

Alderweireld (Spurs) : 1
Morgan (Leicester) : 0
Mid
Hazard (Chelsea) : 3
Capoue (Watford) : 2

De Bruyne : 13 – Adter everything I said last week.
3 of the 4 were also in last week’s eliminated midfield – just saying.
Fwd
Rondon (WBA) : 2 – automatically subbed in.
Ibrahimovic (Man Utd) Captain : 2=4 – also in last week’s eliminated team.

Moving on

This was Derek’s team:

Not often I get to say this, but 84 points this week.  Cahill, Brunt, Koscielny and Firmino – easy, this game.
