Cape Town - Manchester City’s relentless charge toward Premiership glory will continue unabated when they entertain Tottenham on Saturday.

So say the majority of the Sport24 tipsters... although there is some, lesser support for both other results.

On a good day, after all, Spurs have the flair to topple anyone, and last season managed a 2-2 outcome at the Etihad Stadium, fighting back from 2-0 down.

Each round of the 2017/18 Premiership season, our experts have a crack at predicting the results.

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. Try it yourself and see how you shape up...
