Cape Town – There will be desperately little to separate northwest arch-rivals Manchester United and Liverpool when they lock horns in the English Premiership on Sunday.

That is evident from the predictions of the Sport24 panel: none of the seven see more than one goal between the sides, and four anticipate shared spoils at Old Trafford.

Marcus Rashford bagged both United goals in their 2-1 triumph in the corresponding fixture last season.

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.
