Red Devils: No leak to Hull!

Cape Town - Promoted Hull entertain Manchester United in a Premiership clash of teams boasting 100 percent records on Saturday... and the hosts will lose that status.

So say all six of the Sport24 forecasters confidently, even if their assertiveness before has sometimes led to famously widespread egg on faces.

Manchester City and Chelsea, the two other sides with maximum points from two rounds, have home dates with West Ham and Burnley respectively and again there is a unanimous belief they will both bag wins again.

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), 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.
