Derby: Can Gunners hit back?

Cape Town – They come off a 5-1 Champions League hiding at Bayern, but joint-Premiership leaders Arsenal at least shouldn’t lose Sunday’s home derby against Tottenham, say our tipsters.

Three opt for a Gunners win, and the other three a hard-fought stalemate ... which would emulate last season’s outcome at the Emirates Stadium, when an equaliser from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain cancelled out a Nacer Chadli opener for Spurs.

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 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.
