Cape Town – It is firmly in Manchester City’s own hands now to retain their English Premiership title … and they won’t slip up at modest Burnley on Sunday, say the clear majority of the Sport24 forecasters.

Similarly, though, Liverpool will keep up as much pressure as possible by seeing off already-relegated wooden spoonists Huddersfield at Anfield on Friday night.

Still, Reds fans will be praying for a repeat of last season’s outcome at Turf Moor, where Burnley held Pep Guardiola’s charges to a gutsy 1-1 outcome.

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

Have a go yourself: three points are awarded to the forecasters for an entirely correct score-line, and one for right result.
