Cape Town - Supporters of English Premiership leaders Chelsea, who are about to tackle Manchester City away, won’t want reminding of last season’s results between the clubs - 3-0 to City on each occasion.

But the London-based Blues seem a different, resurgent proposition this season, setting the tone for a potential humdinger at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday; a share of the honours is the most popular forecast from the Sport24 experts.

Given the volume of football coming up, a double-round of predictions, covering the next two weekends, is presented here.

Each round of the 2016/17 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; he swears the Championship is more competitive), the others are Garrin Lambley (Everton), Lloyd Burnard, Tashreeq Vardien, Maano Nekhavhambe and Lynn Butler (all Man Utd) plus Craig Taylor (Liverpool).

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