The Sport24 forecasters are unusually aligned in their conviction about the outcome of the Manchester derby in the English Premiership on Sunday evening.

Not only do six of the seven see City winning at Old Trafford against the Red Devils, but they also all believe it will be by a 2-1 scoreline to the Blues.

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.
