Cape Town - The experts at Sport24 are hardly in the mood for thinking English Premiership "upset", it seems.

So when top-of-table Manchester City entertain the basement-hogging Crystal Palace on Saturday, only one result is tipped: extremely comfortable home win.

Between the seven forecasters, scores range between 2-0 and 5-0, with most leaning more toward the rout (it was 5-0 last season, after all).

Each round of the latest 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.
