Cape Town - Thought among our panel leans heavily toward Arsenal maintaining their status as very narrow pack-leaders by edging out Stoke away in the Premiership on Sunday.

That is despite the fact that the Potters bagged the equivalent fixture 3-2 last season, stunning the visitors with three first-half strikes before a concerted fight-back from Arsene Wenger’s charges.

The weekend’s glamour fixture, if you like, sees rather faded superpowers Liverpool and Manchester United lock horns at Anfield; we offer all possible results on this one!

Each round of the 2015/16 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), the others are Garrin Lambley (Everton), Herman Mostert (Chelsea), and a trio of Manchester United devotees in Tashreeq Vardien, Lloyd Burnard and Maano Nekhavhambe.

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