Kyle Tomlinson and his three friends each tossed a fiver and hit the jackpot by correctly picking FOUR players to be shown a yellow card at Tuesday night’s Premier League games.

For the duel between Burnley and Manchester United at Turf Moor, the Lincoln boys chose midfielder Ashley Westwood and left-back Luke Shaw to receive a 20/1 warning.
Evertons Abdoulaye Doucoure and Nelson Semedo from Watford were the 33/1 yellow cards at Molineux.
And together with Tomlinson and friends Kieran Tatton, James Penney and Sam Johnson they were worth a whopping 713/1.
The first half an hour of both games went without a booking until Luke Shaw rattled against Johann Berg Gudmundsson.
Referee Kevin Friend appeared to have missed the apparent foul until he went back on the recommendation of the VAR and reviewed the incident.
Doucoure was next after the break when he fouled Neto, shortly followed by Westwood in the 62nd minute.
You’re down one to go
Over time it looked as if the quartet would be painfully neglected until the 89th minute – referee Martin Atkinson showed Semedo a yellow. Scenes.
Kyle went to Twitter and said, “I can confirm the group chat just got crazy,” along with the picture of the winning ticket.
He later added, “I can confirm that the brain behind this raid operation was indeed Kieran Tatton – all credit is due to him.”
