Mark Lawrenson makes predictions for Premier League finale


Mark Lawrenson Premier League prediction

With the curtain ready to come down on this season’s Premier League title-race, BBC pundit Mark Lawrenson has made his final predictions for this season, and he believes the title will be going back to the Etihad Stadium.

Here are his full picks for the final weekend

Cardiff City 0-2 Chelsea

“I don’t see them having problems scoring against Cardiff”

Fulham 1-1 Crystal Palace
“Palace will finish 11th whatever happens at Craven Cottage, but there is no danger of them relaxing – we saw against Liverpool on Monday that they do not do that at any stage of a game.”
Hull City 2-1 Everton
“Bruce could play his first XI ahead of the final and he is such a pragmatic manager that I think he will do exactly that, and bring an improved performance out of his side.”
Liverpool 3-0 Newcastle United
“Newcastle scraped a win over Cardiff last week – they won 3-0 but two late goals put a gloss on the scoreline – but I don’t think ending their six-game losing run means that their problems are over.”
Manchester City 2-0 West Ham United (Manchester City win the Premier League)
“Pellegrini will find a way. The title is in City’s hands and I do not see them slipping up, even if Sunday will not be as straightforward as their fans would like.”
Norwich City 1-1 Arsenal
“They would have to win 17-0, or something like that, to stay up but, in front of their own fans, the Canaries will not go down with a whimper.”
Southampton 2-1 Manchester United
BBC pundit believes title will be going to The Etihad
“Southampton are finishing the season strongly with seven points from their last three games and the fact it is United who are in town will bring out the best in them.”
Sunderland 2-1 Swansea City
“I cannot speak highly enough of what Gus Poyet has done since taking charge at Sunderland in October. He has turned around everything at the club: from morale in the dressing room to results on the pitch.”
Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 Aston Villa
“Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood has done a good job but I do think it was made easier by the fact he knew relatively early on that he was not going to stay in charge beyond the end of the season.”
West Brom 1-2 Stoke City
“If Stoke win, they could climb above Newcastle and into ninth place. I think they will do it, to cap a great first season in charge for Mark Hughes.”
What are your thoughts on these scores then?
Will City do enough to win their second Premier League title?
