Cape Town - Liverpool will entrench themselves as Premiership table-toppers after the latest round by repelling arch-rivals Manchester United in Sunday’s big Anfield crunch.

So say the clear majority of Sport24’s forecasters, only two of whom see things differently by predicting a share of the spoils.

It was 0-0 between them in last season’s corresponding encounter, although we widely expect at least some rattling of the onion bag this time.

Compiled by Rob Houwing (Newcastle-partial), the other Premiership prediction gurus are Garrin Lambley (Everton, and defending champion), Lloyd Burnard, Tashreeq Vardien, Baden Gillion and Lynn Butler (all Man Utd) plus Craig Taylor (Liverpool).

Three points are awarded to the tipsters for an entirely correct score-line, and one for right result.
