SATURDAY 12.30PM: ARSENAL V TOTTENHAM

LAWRO: It’s interesting this weekend because a lot of teams haven’t played for a while now. You never know how everyone’s going to shape up after international duty. Arsenal are full of goals and have started extremely well. Spurs have been decent with just one or two hiccups. These derbies are unpredictable and the best partsof these teams is going forward. Arsenal 2-2 Tottenham.

 

SATURDAY 3PM: BOURNEMOUTH V BRENTFORD

LAWRO: This still feels like a Championship fixture which tells you how well they’ve done in recent years. Gary O’Neil’s done brilliant in difficult circumstances. Arsenal took Brentford apart last time so I think this will be a home win. Bournemouth 2-1 Brentford.

 

SATURDAY 3PM: CRYSTAL PALACE V CHELSEA

LAWRO: Graham Potter won’t have had much time to mould this Chelsea team but they’ve got some really outstanding players. We know how Crystal Palace play but I feel they should have more points, they do miss a lot of chances. Crystal Palace 1-2 Chelsea.

 

SATURDAY 3PM: FULHAM V NEWCASTLE

LAWRO: Newcastle have only got eight points, you look at them and think they would be doing a bit better than that. Fulham are unlike Fulham teams of old and this lot are feisty, they stand up and fight. Their main man’s scoring, Aleksandar Mitrovic, and that makes a massive, massive difference for any newly-promoted team. Fulham 2-1 Newcastle.

 

SATURDAY 3PM: LIVERPOOL V BRIGHTON

LAWRO: Liverpool need to get back to winning ways, their last game was the Merseyside derby! I’ll be honest, I don’t know much about Roberto De Zerbi. It’s a tough one for Brighton’s new manager but he’ll get a big effort from the players. I think Liverpool should have too much though. Liverpool 2-0 Brighton. 

 

SATURDAY 3PM: SOUTHAMPTON V EVERTON

LAWRO: I’m not expecting this to be a thriller. Everton finally got that first win of the season which was important for them. Southampton, you never really know how they’re going to play. Everton have tightened up and are hard to beat but I’m just going to go for a narrow home win. Both of these have plenty to improve. Southampton 1-0 Everton.

 

SATURDAY 5.30PM: WEST HAM V WOLVES

LAWRO: Both have struggled badly this season. West Ham lost at Everton last time out and weren’t particularly good but we know they’re a much better side than the results have suggested. Wolves’ issue has been goal scoring and I presume Diego Costa might be fit and they might chuck him in which will be interesting to watch. I’ll certainly be on Diego watch. West Ham 2-0 Wolves.

 

SUNDAY 2PM: MANCHESTER CITY V MANCHESTER UNITED

LAWRO: Manchester United have obviously improved of late, they had to, and Manchester City are Manchester City. They’re scoring over three goals a game. This will be tighter than that and United always seem to score when they go to play at City. United have been better defensively but you can’t imagine they’ll keep a clean sheet against Erling Haaland and the rest. Manchester City 2-1 Manchester United.

 

SUNDAY 4.30PM: LEEDS V ASTON VILLA

LAWRO: Leeds are always difficult to beat at home, they’ve done okay overall so far. They work extremely hard but Villa got a much needed win last time. Villa need another positive result to keep the points ticking along but they look a bit all over the place defensively. Leeds 1-1 Aston Villa.

 

MONDAY 8PM: LEICESTER CITY V NOTTINGHAM FOREST

LAWRO: Everyone was thinking that Brendan Rodgers would be gone over the international break but obviously the owners have other ideas. Forest have been competitive but they’ve probably got too many players! It sounds daft but they’ve got so many players that they don’t know at the moment what their best team if. I’ll go for Leicester to get their first win of the season. Leicester 2-1 Nottingham Forest.

Lawro’s Predictions for the Premier League

Premier League betting tips

When there is a Premier League fixture list, BBC football pundit Mark Lawrenson will predict the scores of each match and offer his reasons why he thinks that will be the outcome.

He will usually play it cautiously and predict the winner to be the favourite but every so often, Lawro likes to look beyond this and predict an upset.

Earlier this season, he predicted Liverpool would lose against Manchester City. The first time he had predicted a loss for Liverpool in 159 matches. He was proved wrong as they drew with City.

His article will always start with a preview of the weekend football from the top flight and this gives you a good insight as to what he thinks will happen and which teams should be bet on to win.

 

Lawro’s Predictions for the FA Cup

FA Cup betting tips

The FA Cup is one of the best cup competitions in the world and Lawro’s predictions will be available for every round as soon as he uploads them to the BBC website. The third round is always one of thr highlights of the football calender and you can expect to see some bold predictions from the pundit.

We always get shocks in the FA Cup, but is Lawro a good enough football pundit to spot where these cupsets could happen? Read his FA Cup predictions above to find out.

Even though his EPL predictions are the ones you will find every week, Lawro’s FA Cup predictions are also ones not to be missed!
