English Premiership

Tipsters: Raise ‘bat’ for City’s century!

2018-05-11 12:41

Cape Town - Lowly Southampton will be a mere bump in the road as champions Manchester City duly post their record 100 points on the closing day of the English Premiership on Sunday.

City having to complete the job (they’re on 97) at the Saints’ south coast headquarters isn’t enough to persuade any of the Sport24 panel that the Sky Blues will fail to bank the necessary three points.

They won 3-0 at St Mary’s Stadium last season, and 2-1 in the home clash earlier in the current campaign, so there’s certainly no bogey at play.

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.
