English Premiership

Manchester derby thriller tipped

Cape Town - In-form Manchester City, coming off 5-1 and 6-1 English Premiership wins, will find the going tougher at arch-rivals United on Sunday.

That seems fairly obvious, but the Sport24 tipsters are also divided over the outcome, three backing a Red Devils victory, three a draw ... and a lone vote for a City grab of all three points.

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.
