English Premiership

Blues v Reds: Pundits split!

Cape Town – Our English Premiership forecasters are divided right down the middle for ailing champions Chelsea’s home clash against Liverpool on Saturday.

Three tip a home win, three take the away route, and one opts for a 1-1 stalemate ... exactly last season’s result at Stamford Bridge when veterans John Terry (Blues) and Steven Gerrard (Reds) were the respective scorers.

Each round of the 2015/16 Premiership season, a panel 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 quartet of Manchester United devotees in Tashreeq Vardien, Wade Pretorius, Lloyd Burnard and Maano Nekhavhambe.

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