Jurgen Klopp will teach future Liverpool boss Steven Gerrard a lesson at Anfield, while this weekend’s Premier League Predictions also sees Chelsea cruise past Leeds and a stroll in the park for Ralf Rangnick’s Man Utd at Norwich.
Each week our writers take on a different band or artist by making their Premier League predictions, while you can join in the fun using the story comment facility (below) or Your Say forum.
