English Premiership

Red Devils to ‘hound’ Foxes!

Cape Town - There will be a delay on Sunday in the still highly likely coronation of Leicester City as Premiership champions.

That is the majority belief of the six Sport24 soccer tipsters, only one of whom fancies the Foxes to beat Manchester United in a toughie at Old Trafford – that is the result they would need to confirm that they finally can’t be caught.

Perhaps the sages were influenced in their thinking by last season’s result at the same venue (3-1 to the Red Devils in January 2015), although Leicester were unrecognisable then as they were unbelievably the basement club at the time.

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.
