Cape Town – Chelsea and Liverpool are the lone remaining “100 percent” teams in the English Premiership … and both should keep it that way at the weekend.

That is the view of the Sport24 gurus, most of whom fancy the Blues to beat West Ham away in a London derby – despite the Hammers’ good win at Everton last time out – and ‘Pool to subdue Southampton comfortably enough at Anfield.

Still, there is hope for West Ham through the knowledge that they upset Chelsea 1-0 in the corresponding fixture last season, courtesy of Marko Arnautovic’s early strike.

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.
