BBC pundit believes Manchester City will see off Arsenal
It’s that time of the week again for BBC pundit Mark Lawrenson to make his predictions for the weekend’s Premier League action.
Here is what he think will happen this weekend!
Manchester City 2-1 Arsenal
“City is the first big one to get through first (for Arsenal), and if they are going to be vulnerable anywhere, it will be at the Etihad Stadium.”
Cardiff 1-1 West Brom
“A point would get the Baggies back on track, and it is not the worst result in the world for Cardiff either.”
Chelsea 2-0 Crystal Palace
“The Blues are at home and, even if they lack a prolific goalscorer, they have enough creative quality in their team to find a way through.”
Everton 2-0 Fulham
“Rene Meulensteen got his first win as Fulham boss at the second attempt when they beat Aston Villa last weekend but, if Everton play anything like they can, then it is asking a lot for the Cottagers to get anything at Goodison Park.”
Newcastle 1-2 Southampton
“This is the kind of Newcastle team that could follow a win at Manchester United by playing Southampton at home and getting beaten, and Saints have already shown us they are definitely capable of going to St James’ Park and winning.”
West Ham United 2-0 Sunderland
“I think West Ham will be into them and harass them from the start because Allardyce knows the importance of three points from this fixture.”
Hull City 1-1 Stoke City
“Hull do not appear to have the same problem as another of the newly-promoted teams, Cardiff, in seeing their performance levels drop after 10 games and I am going to go for another draw here too.”
Aston Villa 0-2 Manchester United
“United need to show some of that form in the Premier League, and I think they will get a win they badly need on Sunday. Villa were great against Southampton but poor against Fulham and they are another team that are too inconsistent.”
Norwich City 2-0 Swansea City
“Last season Norwich went on a run for a couple of months before Christmas that took them out of trouble and I can actually see them kicking on again this time too.”
Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 Liverpool
“Spurs have had two good wins on the road at Fulham and Sunderland and I can see them making it three in a row with a win at White Hart Lane.”
