English Premiership

‘Pool may stay a bit liverish!

Cape Town - Liverpool last won a Premiership encounter six rounds ago, which goes a long way to explaining why almost all of Sport24's pundits fail to muster the optimism to predict three much-needed points for them against second-placed Tottenham at Anfield on Saturday.

There is, nevertheless, strong majority sentiment of a draw in the pretty attractive fixture, which would emulate last season's outcome between the two on Merseyside (1-1, goals then from Messrs Coutinho and Kane).  

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.
