Cape Town – An improving Chelsea probably quite like the timing of their major English Premiership showdown with leaders Liverpool at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Coming off a 5-2 thumping of Wolves away, the Blues will believe they can end their Merseyside visitors’ 100 percent record.

But is it going to happen? While a few of the Sport24 tipsters back a draw, the majority still go for a narrow Liverpool triumph on the road.

Each round of the 2019/20 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, and defending champion), Lloyd Burnard, Tashreeq Vardien, Baden Gillion and Lynn Butler (all Man Utd) plus Craig Taylor (Liverpool).

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