Cape Town – Manchester City to be back bossing the English Premiership over the next few days.

That is the unanimous view of the Sport24 forecasters, who back them to win successive outings against relegation-threatened Fulham (Saturday, away) and Cardiff (Wednesday, home).

Still, there is also pretty good support for narrow current leaders Liverpool to earn all three points in a home toughie against Tottenham on Sunday and stay well in the title picture.

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.
