English Premiership

Tipsters: Toffees WON'T chew up City again

Cape Town - Believe it or not, the last time Everton hosted Manchester City, this season's runaway leaders in the English Premiership, the Toffees romped to a 4-0 triumph in the 2016/17 campaign.

The goals rained from Messrs Lukaku, Mirallas, Davies and Lookman.

But ruthless City are an entirely different beast in the latest season, of course, and none of our panel (no, not even Garrin) are making the "mistake" of backing another home triumph for mid-table Everton on Saturday.

A full house fancies all three points for Pep Guardiola's charges.

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.
