Cape Town – Champions Manchester City may have slipped to third in the English Premiership, but they should prosper in their local showdown with the Red Devils on Saturday.

A home win at Etihad Stadium is the surprisingly solid expectation of six of the seven Sport24 tipsters, with the other anticipating a share of the spoils. 

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.
