English Premiership

Cape Town - It is first against third in the English Premiership as Liverpool host Leicester on Saturday … but our experts strongly fancy the Reds to maintain their supremacy on the table.

That is despite the slightly surprise-package Foxes coming off strong successive showings against Tottenham (2-1) and Newcastle (5-0) … and earning a fighting 1-1 outcome at the venue last season.

Each round of the 2019/20 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, 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.
