English Premiership

Cape Town - Arsenal and Manchester City produced an absorbing, end-to-end spectacle the last time they met at the Emirates Stadium in the Premiership ... more of the same is possible when the respective title-chasers clash in London anew on Monday.

Last season, it ended 2-2 as a late equaliser from Martin Demichelis denied the Gunners a come-from-behind victory; see below for how our experts anticipate this one turning out.

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.
