Tipsters: Spurs unlikely to halt 'Pool

Cape Town - Typically inconsistent Tottenham would be doing the already quite distant chasers a big favour if they could topple Premiership leaders Liverpool in London on Saturday.

But is it going to happen? Not according to the Sport24 forecasters.

While five of the seven see the Reds leaving town with all three points, just two others fancy a hard-fought 1-1 stalemate.

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.
