Tipsters: Liverpool to hold nerve!

Cape Town – Even if only temporarily, Liverpool will take advantage of Manchester City’s absence from a curtailed English Premiership programme to recapture the lead this weekend.

That is the unanimous view of the Sport24 gurus, who see them beating labouring Southampton away on Friday night.

If so, it would echo their success at St Mary’s last season, when they prevailed 2-0 with strikes from Messrs Firmino and Salah.

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.
