Tipsters: No Old Trafford love for Arsene!

Cape Town - Arsene Wenger leading Arsenal into battle against old rivals Manchester United at Old Trafford one last time will carry no special room for sentiment.

So say all but one of the Sport24 experts, believing that Jose Mourinho, also a renowned personal adversary of the now-departing Wenger, will be the manager smiling after the final whistle on Sunday.

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.
