English Premiership

Gunners should subdue Toon

English Premiership flutter (File)
Cape Town - Leaders Arsenal at home to relegation-zone Newcastle ... it suggests one-way traffic and that’s certainly how our Premiership tipsters unanimously view Saturday’s clash.

A mini-revival by the Toon has floundered again of late, which makes it seem even less likely that they will nick anything from the trip to the Emirates Stadium, where they were beaten 4-1 last season.

Each round of the 2015/16 Premiership campaign, 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.
