Cape Town - Bad news for Liverpool fans, maybe … almost all of the Sport24 gurus see Manchester City overcoming a tough hurdle by beating Chelsea on Sunday to continue their resurgence in the tense English Premiership title race.

If they win at the Etihad Stadium they will repeat last season’s success against the Blues in the corresponding fixture: City won 1-0 through a strike from Bernardo Silva.

Still, the Reds (coming off successive draws) are also expected to have banked a comfortable enough three points at the expense of Bournemouth, the visitors to Anfield a day earlier.

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.
