English Premiership

‘Pool to exploit City hangover?

Cape Town - Manchester City, bundled out of the Champions League in midweek, could be a slightly dispirited bunch in their big home Sunday clash with Liverpool.

At least that seems the view of several of the Sport24 Premiership pundits, with all results offered for the fixture.

A bit of doubt about City’s ability to prosper in this high-stakes one may also be down to last season’s corresponding outcome - the Reds raided the Etihad Stadium for a 4-1 triumph.

Each round of the 2016/17 Premiership campaign, a group of our staff has a crack at predicting the results - do the exercise yourself, if you like, and see how you compare afterwards.

Compiled by Rob Houwing (Newcastle-partial; he swears the Championship is more competitive), the others are Garrin Lambley (Everton), Lloyd Burnard, Tashreeq Vardien, Maano Nekhavhambe and Lynn Butler (all Man Utd) plus Craig Taylor (Liverpool).

Three points are awarded for an entirely correct scoreline, and one for right result.
