Aston Villa vs Arsenal Prediction
West Ham did a job on Aston Villa on Wednesday but, unlike last season, I don’t look at Dean Smith’s side when they lose now and think they are going to go on a run of bad results.
The Hammers were set up to nullify Jack Grealish, and it worked, so it will be interesting to see how Arsenal approach this one.
Will the Gunners bother doing that with Grealish, or will they just think they are better than Villa and just go and play their football? I don’t know.
Arsenal are without the suspended David Luiz in defence after his red card in Tuesday’s defeat by Wolves, so they might change their shape and go with three at the back – but I fancy Villa to edge this one anyhow.
Lawro’s prediction: Aston Villa to win.
Burnley vs Brighton Prediction
Burnley did not lie down against Manchester City, but it was all pretty comfortable for Pep Guardiola’s side once they had their early goal.
Brighton, meanwhile, got their famous win at Anfield on the same night. The last time they won there in the league, in March 1982, I was playing against them for Liverpool – so it has been a long wait.
The Seagulls have won three of their past four league games, and drew the other one. As well as being on a very good run of results they are conceding very few goals – they have kept a clean sheet in all of those matches.
This should be a close game, but both teams have climbed away from the relegation zone in recent weeks and a point would be a decent result for both of them.
Lawro’s prediction: Draw.
Newcastle vs Southampton Prediction
This is probably a good time to play Southampton, who are short of available players even though the red card Jan Bednarek received near the end of Tuesday’s 9-0 defeat at Old Trafford was overturned.
I was there for BBC Radio 5 live and, although Saints didn’t capitulate until the last few minutes, it was a horrible night for them which will have taken a lot out of their players too, because they worked extremely hard.
Newcastle lost at home to Crystal Palace in midweek but they were pretty lively and kept up the more ambitious approach that saw them win at Everton last weekend.
More of the same should see the Magpies get some reward here, after taking only two points from their previous five home league games.
Lawro’s prediction: Newcastle to win.
Fulham vs West Ham Prediction
West Ham came unstuck against Liverpool last weekend, when they did not play well, but the sign of a good side is when you can respond after a poor performance and the Hammers certainly did that in their win over Aston Villa.
I was impressed by the way David Moyes’ side were set up from front to back – they kept Jack Grealish quiet for starters, but they always got men forward quickly too.
New loan signing Jesse Lingard made an instant impression with his two goals in that game, and he has clearly been training hard and looked really sharp despite hardly playing for Manchester United this season. There will be more to come from him, I’m sure.
Fulham did not really lay a finger on Leicester on Wednesday and their long wait for a first league win since the end of November goes on – I don’t see them ending it here, either.
Lawro’s prediction: West Ham to win.
Manchester United vs Everton Prediction
Manchester United’s 9-0 win over Southampton was a freak result but even so it will give them a lot of confidence. This will be a lot harder for them, though.
On the physical side of things, Everton are very strong, and they have obviously got some quality too.
ednesday’s win at Leeds means Carlo Ancelotti’s side have won five of their past six away league games – it’s their home form that has been letting them down recently.
The Toffees have already beaten Tottenham and Leicester on the road this season, but I think taking the points at Old Trafford too is a big ask.
Lawro’s prediction: Manchester United to win.
