Cape Town - Leicester City, log-leading sensations of the English Premiership season, should have a pretty easy ride at home to lowly, strife-torn Newcastle United in the abbreviated latest round of matches.

All six Sport24 tipsters have the Foxes winning, in some cases by a score-line almost as comfortable as when they prevailed 3-0 in last season’s corresponding meeting, and registered exactly the same outcome in the north-east earlier in the current campaign.

Each round of the 2015/16 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), 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.
