English Premiership

Cape Town - The season’s enduring surprise packages Leicester City may battle for all three points at home to Liverpool on Tuesday - but will do enough to remain Premiership leaders.

That is the view of our resident experts, most of whom tip a 1-1 share of the spoils; remember that the Reds come off a thrilling 5-4 triumph over Norwich, also on enemy terrain.

But considering the Foxes hold a three-point lead over both Manchester City and Arsenal, a draw would be enough to keep them at the head of the pack regardless of other midweek outcomes.

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.
