English Premiership

Swans set for 'duck' at Chelsea

Cape Town - There will be little (make that no) joy for labouring Swansea in their weekend Premiership trip to comfortable leaders Chelsea, reckon the Sport24 tipsters unanimously.

Everyone has the Blues winning, to tighten their grip on the table - although the Welsh visitors will take some heart from grabbing a 2-2 outcome at Stamford Bridge last season.

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.
