English Premiership

Little headway for Spurs, Gunners?

Cape Town - Third visits second in the English Premiership on Saturday ... but our tipsters overwhelmingly back a derby stalemate between Tottenham and Arsenal, which leaders Leicester ought not to mind too much.

There is no support for an away triumph by the out-of-touch Gunners, though one forecaster fancies Spurs to exactly repeat their 2-1 White Hart Lane victory last season.

Each round of the 2015/16 Premiership campaign, a panel 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), Herman Mostert (Chelsea), and a trio of Manchester United devotees in Tashreeq Vardien, Lloyd Burnard and Maano Nekhavhambe.

Three points are awarded for an entirely correct scoreline, and one for right result.
