English Premiership

Cape Town - Chelsea may occupy the unusually lowly berth of 14th on the Premiership table, but derby spirit will make them very competitive at leaders Arsenal on Sunday, reckon our panel.

Although the majority view is a Gunners triumph, nobody sees it occurring by more than one goal, and two of the pundits envisage a draw - the outcome of last season’s equivalent meeting at the Emirates Stadium.

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.
