Cape Town - Apart from the conventional fierce regional rivalry, Manchester City v Manchester United on Sunday is also a scrap for Champions League status next season - but the hosts are widely expected by our forecasters to tighten the screws on that front.

Fourth-placed City lead the Red Devils (sixth) by four points and all but one of us see that advantage stretching to a formidable seven once the dust settles on the derby.

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.
