UK tips: More 0-4 horror for Red Devils, Blues?

Cape Town - Manchester United and Chelsea will hardly look back on last season's respective visits to Everton and Bournemouth with affection.

The supposedly bigger clubs were each routed 4-0 ... and return trips for them loom in the English Premiership this weekend.

So do the Sport24 tipsters envisage repeats? The answer is near-unanimous "no", if you look at the forecasts below.

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.
