Tipsters: Liverpool to roast old enemy!

Cape Town - A gaping 27 points separate them on the Premiership table, which goes a long way to explaining the overwhelming belief that runaway leaders Liverpool will down arch-enemies Manchester United at Anfield on Sunday.

This strong conviction among the Sport24 tipping panel is helped, no doubt, by the fact that 'Pool won last season's corresponding clash 3-1 - two of the goals coming from substitute Xherdan Shaqiri.

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.
