Tipsters: Little joy for Liverpool?

Cape Town - Joint-leaders Manchester United are heavily backed by the Sport24 pundits not to come a cropper in their Premiership trip to old enemies Liverpool on Saturday.

There is majority sentiment in favour of a Red Devils win, and a more limited belief that inconsistent 'Pool may snaffle a home point at Anfield.

But the tipsters do feel there will be more activity in the scoring column than in last season’s corresponding clash, when the arch-rivals played out a goalless draw.

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.
