ePremier League tournament wrap: Wolves, Blades score big
Diogo Jota had been scoring goals for fun before the Wolves season stalled, so it’s seems right that he’s bagging goals on the e-pitch.
Jota hung eight goals on Wilfred Ndidi as Wolves buried Leicester City 8-2 in one of three Round of 16 matches held Thursday in the ePremier League invitational tournament.

Elsewhere, Burnley’s Dwight McNeil handled Arsenal 3-1, the Gunners repped by singer Josh Franceschi.
Sheffield United’s Lys Mousset scored six to the two of Norwich City’s Todd Cantwell, while Brighton’s Neal Maupay doubled up Bournemouth’s Philip Billing 4-2.
The quarterfinals begin Thursday. Here’s where the bracket stands:
- Liverpool (Trent Alexander-Arnold) v. Newcastle United (Christian Atsu)
- Everton (Andre Gomes) v. Man City (Raheem Sterling)
- Wolves (Jota) v. Sheffield United (Mousset)
- Brighton (Maupay) v. Burnley (McNeil)
The prize fund for the ePremier League Invitational tournament is being donated to the #PlayersTogether initiative, which was created by Premier League players as a collective way of generating funds for the National Health Service (NHS) in the UK and distributing them where they are needed most.
