Cape Town - There’s little flamboyance from the Sport24 forecasters over the undoubted English Premiership clash of the weekend: a draw is the favoured result between high-riders Chelsea and Liverpool on Saturday.

The Reds are the only remaining side with maximum points after six rounds, but the strong expectation is that they will drop two points at Stamford Bridge, where the currently third-placed hosts won the corresponding fixture 1-0 (Olivier Giroud) late last season.

Compiled by Rob Houwing (Newcastle-partial), the other prediction gurus 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 to the tipsters for an entirely correct score-line, and one for right result.
