English Premiership

Can Spurs keep the heat up?

Cape Town - As much as it will be fascinating to see if Premiership leaders Leicester hold their nerve, whether Tottenham can stay snapping at their heels is another key consideration in the title race.

All of the Sport24 forecasters have in-form Spurs winning at home to West Brom on Monday night … though it should be remembered that they crashed 1-0 (James Morrison goal) to the Baggies in the corresponding White Hart Lane fixture last season!

But there is less unanimity about the Foxes seeing off Swansea on Sunday; two of the panel pick a share of the spoils.

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.
