English Premiership

Cape Town - All of our tipsters foresee stern resistance from visitors West Ham on Sunday, but the most popular outcome remains another victory for Leicester City en route to a remarkable Premiership title.

If they pull it off here – they won the corresponding fixture 2-1 late last season, while scrapping just for survival - it will be a sixth win in succession for the Foxes.

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.
