English Premiership

Red Devils to hunt down Foxes!

Cape Town - You might say that unsung Leicester City leading the English Premiership table isn’t fooling the Sport24 pundits.

Three of the six tipsters believe once-mighty Manchester United, one point behind them heading into the undoubted match of the weekend on Saturday evening, will outwit the Foxes for a valuable away triumph.

The only really unanimous view, however, is that it won’t be a roller-coaster ride like last year’s 5-3 outcome in Leicester’s favour ... after the Red Devils had led 3-1.

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.
