Mark Lawrenson predictions for weekend


BBC pundit thinks Manchester City will see off Arsenal at the Emirates

It’s that time of the week again when BBC pundit Mark Lawrenson gives his predictions for this weekend’s Premier League matches, and below you can see who he fancies this time around.

Manchester United 2-0 Aston Villa

“There’s no way David Moyes will rest anyone with Tuesday’s game against Bayern Munich in mind. That’s the least of his worries. They need to win a game – and quick. He’ll pick a team to win this game.”

Crystal Palace 0-2 Chelsea

“There’s no chance of them putting out a weakened side with an eye on the game against Paris St-Germain in midweek. At this stage of the season, you have to keep winning games.”

Southampton 2-0 Newcastle United 

“Southampton need to keep pressing on – they can go above Newcastle with a win, and that’s incentive alone. Quite a few Southampton players are trying to secure World Cup places and good luck to them, they’ve had a very good season. I fancy they’ll win this comfortably.”

Stoke City 2-0 Hull City

“It was a great win for Stoke at Villa last weekend, arguably their best performance of the season. It’s taken Mark Hughes time to change their mentality and the way they play. He’s done a good job and they’re going to finish halfway up the league.”

Swansea City 2-1 Norwich City

“Taking a point at Arsenal was a good result for Swansea. They only need to win a couple of games to be safe – and I think they will.”

West Brom 2-0 Cardiff City

“I have predicted them to win but I am not sure where their goals will come from.”

Arsenal 0-2 Manchester City

“City have the bit between their teeth – they’re playing very well. I’m not going to say Arsenal are imploding but City are a much better side and have lots of confidence. They’re starting to look like they’re full of goals and really dangerous.”

Fulham 1-2 Everton

“They’re playing well again. Four straight wins in the Premier League – why not go to Fulham and make it five? Lots of other teams have gone there and won. Fulham are conceding goals like there’s no tomorrow.”

Liverpool 2-0 Tottenham Hotspur

“I don’t think Tottenham will go to Anfield and try to defend. In fact, I don’t think they can defend.”

Sunderland 2-1 West Ham United

“West Ham got booed for winning at home against Hull. It’s a strange one. After losing three and getting sucked back into the danger zone, they actually won a game and were booed. I think they are a win away from being safe.”
