Lawro’s Saturday Premier League Predictions: West Ham vs Chelsea, Wolves vs Liverpool and More

Lawro predictions

BBC pundit Mark Lawrenson has picked out his Premier League predictions for this weekend’s fixtures and we can combine them for an accumulator tip across the five Saturday matches, starting with West Ham vs Chelsea.

After the midweek action, all three teams at the top of the table won their matches and Liverpool were dominant in the Merseyside derby against Everton. Chelsea and Manchester City were less convincing but still got the three points.

This weekend kicks off with a London derby between West Ham and Chelsea at the London Stadium and Lawro is predicting a 2-0 Chelsea victory. The evening kick-off sees Manchester City travel to Watford.

There are also three 3pm kick-offs including a bottom-of-the-table clash between Newcastle and Burnley and Liverpool’s trip to Wolves.

See what Lawro is predicting below and take a look at the odds for all five of his selections.

West Ham vs Chelsea

It looks like the international break has halted West Ham’s momentum because they have not won any of their three Premier League games since – and I don’t see them ending that run here.

Chelsea were fortunate to win at Watford on Wednesday, and their manager Thomas Tuchel admitted it afterwards. I am expecting a reaction from them on Saturday – and a much-improved performance – because they rarely play poorly two games in a row.

Lawro’s prediction: 0-2

Newcastle vs Burnley

Burnley have turned themselves into draw specialists, with four in their past five games. They are still in the bottom three but they seem to be playing pretty well, and it feels like the results will come.

I’m not sure the same applies to Newcastle. Tuesday’s home game with Norwich was a must-win, and they didn’t win it. The more points they drop, even when they don’t lose, just makes it even harder for them to stay up.

They have left themselves a huge task to survive now – they will probably need to win at least 10 of their remaining 24 games, and I just don’t see that happening.

Lawro’s prediction: 0-2

 

Southampton vs Brighton

Both of these teams drew in midweek, with Saints pegged back twice by Leicester and Brighton equalising late on at West Ham.

The way both games went, I’d say Brighton’s result was the better one, but their problem is they keep on drawing and they are not scoring enough goals to win games.

Because of that, and because Southampton’s home record is actually quite decent – they have only lost one out of seven league games at St Mary’s this season – I think Saints might edge this.

Brighton’s current form is not a reason to boo manager Graham Potter or the team, though. If at the start of the season, you’d told any of their fans that they would be in the top eight after 14 games, then they would have been delighted.

But, because they started so well and are not getting the same results anymore, some supporters see things differently.

Lawro’s prediction: 2-1

Wolves vs Liverpool

Molineux is usually a happy hunting ground for Liverpool, who have won all of their past five visits there in the Premier League.

Wolves will give them a good game this time, but they can’t score at the moment. Finding the net is not an issue for the Reds though – they have averaged more than three goals a game in the league this season, which is a stunning record.

Lawro’s prediction: 0-2

Watford vs Man City

Watford were very lucky against Chelsea in midweek. The very least they deserved was a point, if not all three.

But now they have to try to raise their game again, against the defending champions. I just don’t think it’s possible to do that twice in the space of four days.

Manchester City had to hold on for their win at Aston Villa on Wednesday but they can defend well when they have to, and we know how good they are going forward.

Lawro’s prediction: 0-3
