Liverpool's representative Fnatic Tekkz is defeated in eight-goal thriller in Xbox quarter-finals

Manchester United's representative Sean 'SAF Dragon' Allen is through to the ePremier League Xbox semi-finals after eliminating former ePL champion Donovan 'Fnatic Tekkz' Hunt and the No 2 seed Spencer 'HUGE G0RILLA' Ealing.

SAF Dragon beat Liverpool's Fnatic Tekkz 5-3 in the last eight after edging past Sheffield United's HUGE G0RILLA 6-5, surviving a real scare having held a 5-1 lead from the first leg.

He will face Chelsea's Diogo 'FalconsDiogo' Mendes in Friday's semi-finals.

Xbox semi-finals

1. Olle "Ollelito" Arbin (LEE) v Joseph 'Healy' Healy (ARS)
2. Diogo 'FalconsDiogo' Mendes (CHE) v Sean 'SAF Dragon' Allen (MUN)

Day 1 highlights

FalconsDiogo will be aiming to make up for his heartbreak in 2018/19, when he suffered a late defeat to Fnatic Tekkz in the Xbox final.

He beat West Bromwich Albion's Jas 'Jas1875' Singh 6-3, getting one over on the player who represented his club, Chelsea, in the Finals two years ago.

Top seed Olle "Ollelito" Arbin had few troubles as he breezed through for Leeds United, beating Manchester City's Ryan 'MCFC Ryan' Pessoa and Jas1875 before demolishing Spurs' Tom 'ELVNS Stokes' Stokes 13-2 in the quarter-finals.

He will now meet Arsenal's Joseph 'Healy' Healy (ARS), who earned a thrilling 7-6 victory over Sean 'Sean Flossy' Bleakley, ending the Wolverhampton Wanderers player's fairytale run to the final four.

Healy admitted he was surprised by his success and had declined to book Friday off work because he did not expect to reach the semi-finals.

Sean Flossy's progress to the last eight was also something of a shock, given he was the lowest-ranked of the 20 Xbox players in the Finals.

After losing his opening match to Fnatic Tekkz, he scored 13 goals in victories over Southampton's Joseph 'Royal Funky' Crown and Leicester City's Jacob 'FUTWIZ NKSNB' Benskin to reach the quarter-finals.

On Wednesday, it will be the turn of the Playstation 4 players to battle through the group stage and the last eight.

The semi-finals and finals will then be played on both consoles on Friday, followed by the Grand Final to determine the overall winner.
