English Premiership

Tipsters: More Manc misery for the Blues!

Cape Town - They came away empty-handed from a trip to Manchester United last Sunday… it’ll be same again this weekend for Chelsea when they visit Premiership leaders Manchester City.

That is the confident expectation of the Sport24 panel for the big match of the weekend.

If there’s to be any hope for the Londoners, maybe it comes through their result at the Etihad Stadium last season, when they won 3-1 - not City’s finest hour as they also suffered red cards to Messrs Aguero and Fernandinho.

Each round of the 2017/18 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.
