English Premiership

Tipsters: City to murder two minnows!

Cape Town - The Premiership title so safely in the bag, Manchester City should simply drive home their dominance of the season over the next few days.

Successive home games loom for the Sky Blues against relegation-threatened Huddersfield (Sunday) and Brighton (Wednesday) ... and none of the Sport24 tipsters envisage any joy at all for the visitors.

Let’s just say that 3-0 and 4-0 to City are popular anticipated score-lines in each fixture.

Each round of the 2017/18 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), 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.
