English Premiership

Tipsters: A 'useless' stalemate at Arsenal?

Cape Town - With Manchester City already so dominant at the top of the Premiership table, chasers Manchester United and Arsenal will do themselves no special favours by drawing their traditional grudge game at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

That, at least, is the view of five of the seven Sport24 forecasters, who have 1-1 as the likeliest outcome.

But the two others fancy the currently fourth-placed Gunners to edge it, which would roughly repeat last season’s London result, when Arsene Wenger's charges prevailed 2-0 (Xhaka, Welbeck).

Each round of the 2017/18 Premiership season, our experts have a crack at predicting the results.

Compiled by Rob Houwing (Newcastle-partial), the others are Garrin Lambley (Everton), Lloyd Burnard, Tashreeq Vardien, Baden Gillion and Lynn Butler (all Man Utd) plus Craig Taylor (Liverpool).

Three points are awarded for an entirely correct scoreline, and one for right result. Try it yourself and see how you shape up ...
