Cape Town - Joint-leaders Arsenal will win their north London grudge game in the Premiership against fifth-placed Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

So say five members of the seven-strong Sport24 tipster panel confidently, with the other two backing a draw in the attractive fixture at Emirates Stadium.

Mind you, a stalemate is perfectly possible when you consider that last year both derbies ended undecided.

Each round of the 2016/17 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; he swears the Championship is more competitive), the others are Garrin Lambley (Everton), Lloyd Burnard, Tashreeq Vardien, Maano Nekhavhambe and Lynn Butler (all Man Utd) plus Craig Taylor (Liverpool).

Three points are awarded for an entirely correct scoreline, and one for right result.
