February 1st and 2nd - Liverpool's lead on Sunday evening stood at 22 points as the Reds won again. They saw off a determined Southampton challenge, scoring four without reply in the second half. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain scored his second goal in a week and that was followed by goals from Henderson and Salah (2). Liverpool have now taken 100 out of 102 points from the last 34 games, winning 33 and drawing 1. Man City's sixth defeat of the season saw them lose two-nil at Tottenham on Sunday evening. Goals from debutant Stephen Bergwijn and Son Heung-min saw Jose Morinho's side move to within four points of the top four.

Chelsea will be happy enough having taken a point a Leicester though - they drew two-all in an entertaining game. All four goals came in the second half with goals from Harvey Barnes and Ben Chilwell being cancelled out by two from Antonio Rudiger. Frank Lampard's side are five points clear of Sheffield United - an own goal from Crystal Palace's Vicente Guaita was enough to earn another three points for Chris Wilder's side. Man United and Wolves failed to make ground on the top four after drawing nil-all at Old Trafford.

Bournemouth followed up their midweek victory at home to Brighton with a two-one win at home to Aston Villa. Philip Billing and Nathan Ake scored the goals as Eddie Howe's side climbed out of the bottom three. Watford looked to be heading towards three points as they raced into a two-nil lead at home to Everton. However, first goals of the season from Yerry Mina (2) and Theo Walcott saw Carlo Ancelotti's side collect the three points despite Fabian Delph's red card. Another relegation six-pointer saw six goals shared at the London Stadium as West Ham and Brighton shared the points. Brighton came from three-one down in that one with a late goal from Glenn Murray ensuring the Hammers stayed in the bottom three.

There were two other goalless games this weekend - Norwich picked up a useful point at Newcastle and it was the same result at Turf Moor where Burnley and Arsenal earned a point each.

The early leaderboard for February sees Damien Martin and Roisin Joyce share the lead on 32 points. They're a point clear of a gaggle of people on 31 points including Callum Dunne who will be looking to become the first person to win three monthly competitions in a row in the long and illustrious history of Block 102 (probably....)
 



February 8th to 15th - A disjointed round of games as a result of Storm Ciara, Storm Dennis and a winter break of sorts was dominated by off-field events. UEFA announced on Friday night that Man City were to banned from Europe for two years as a result of breaching Financial Fair Play regulations. That could have big implications for this season's race for the Champions League and is now doubt the most significant set back in Man City's twelve year, oil-enhanced, history. Watch this space as there's a long way to go on this one....

After all that, Liverpool did what Liverpool do best, beating Norwich one-nil at Carrow Road to go a massive 25 points clear at the top of the table. At this stage it's a case of when not if the Reds are crowned champions. Sadio Mane scored the winner with just twelve minutes to go. That was his 100th goal in English football but his first as a substitute.

City's potential ban could see fifth place earn a Champions League spot. Tottenham scored an injury time winner at Aston Villa to move into that now-coveted spot. Heung Son-min scored twice as they won three-two at Villa Park. Chris Wilder could dusting off his passport too - Sheffield United stayed in touch with a two-one win at home to Bournemouth last Sunday.

Elsewhere over the week, Everton picked up another three points, beating Crystal Palace three-one at home. Arsenal picked up three points winning four-nil at home to Newcastle with Aubamayang and Lacazette among the scorers. Leicester and Wolves shared the points after a nil-all draw at Molineaux on Friday night.

It's a case of re-joyce at the top of the February leaderboard - Roisin Joyce leads on 81 points followed by Micheal Joyce on 75. Callum Dunne, winner in January and February is loitering not far behind on 73 points alongside Craig Calvert and Gerry Draper. Full details below:
 


February 22nd and 23rd - The weekend's action opened with Chelsea picking up a huge three points in the London Derby. Jose Mourinho suffered defeat on his return to Stamford Bridge with Spurs as Frank Lampard's side ran out two-one winners. Olivier Giroud, restored to the starting eleven, and Marcos Alonso scored the goals as the Blues opened up a four point gap to fifth place.

Another defeat for Bournemouth saw them drop ever closer to the relegation zone. They lost three-nil at Burnley - Vydra, Rodriguez and McNeil all scored in the second half for Sean Dyche's side who climbed to eighth in the table with that win. Aston Villa also suffered another defeat - they lost two-nil at Southampton and were only a point clear of the drop zone on Saturday evening. Shane Long and Stuart Armstrong scored for the hosts in that one.

Crystal Palace picked up an important three points beating Newcastle one-nil at Selhurst Park. Patrick van Aanholt scored the winner for Roy Hodgson's side just before half time. That halted a run of four defeats on the bounce for the Eagles since drawing at Man City in January.

Man City moved seven points clear of Leicester in the battle for third place. A missed penalty from Sergio Aguero looked like proving costly until Gabriel Jesus scored a late winner for Pep Guardiola's side. Sheffield United's ambitions for a champions league spot suffered a bit of a set back as they were held one-all by Brighton. Enda Stevens opened the scoring for the Blades but Neal Maupay earned a point for Graham Potter's side.

The early kick-offs on Sunday saw good wins for the teams with European ambitions. Man United scored three without reply at home to Wolves - that result included Bruno Fernandes first goal for his new side. Wolves won by the same scoreline at home to Norwich - Diogo Jota scored twice and Raul Jiminez scored the third as the Molineux men recorded another good home win. Sunday's final game was probably the weekend's best. Arsenal beat Everton at the Emirates by the odd goal in five. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored twice as Mikel Arteta's side ended a good week with three victories.

As we enter the last week of the month, Craig Calvert has taken top spot in the February competition. He leads Gavin Morgan (who picked up an excellent 65 points this week) by just two points. The top five is completed by Kevin Philpott, Mai-Ly Turner and David Cooney. Full details below:
