Cape Town - Chelsea to outfox Manchester United on Monday in what would once have been a slightly more heavyweight English Premiership clash.

That is the majority pick of the Sport24 panel for another abbreviated round of matches, where another prediction was relatively simple: a full house reckon runaway leaders Liverpool will dispose of bottom club Norwich away.

Each round of the 2019/20 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, and defending champion), Lloyd Burnard, Tashreeq Vardien, Baden Gillion and Lynn Butler (all Man Utd) plus Craig Taylor (Liverpool).

Three points are awarded for an entirely correct score-line, and one for right result.
