English Premiership

Chelsea to ‘upset’ Leicester!

Cape Town - Champions Chelsea lie a distant 14th, whilst unsung Leicester City lead the pack.

Yet the majority tip of our English Premiership forecasting panel is for Jose Mourinho’s big-name, once-mighty charges to topple the Foxes in their encounter at the King Power Stadium on Monday night.

Perhaps it is motivated by the visitors winning 3-1 in last season’s corresponding outing, with strikes from Messrs Terry, Drogba and Ramires?

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.
