Mark Lawrenson predicts results for Tottenham vs Man Utd, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool, other fixtures


Mark Lawrenson, a former Liverpool player, has predicted some of the English Premier League, EPL, games that will be played this weekend.

Leicester City will host Arsenal at the King Power Stadium on Saturday afternoon, while Chelsea will face Newcastle United at St. James’ Park.

Manchester United will face Tottenham Hotspur in an away Premier League tie on Saturday evening and Liverpool will host Brighton.

Providing his predictions, Lawrenson told BBC Sport, “I am still not convinced by Arsenal, especially on the road. Leicester left out Jamie Vardy for their Carabao Cup win over Brighton on Wednesday. He will be rested, ready and hungry for this game, and I have a strong feeling he will score. Leicester 2, Arsenal 1.”

Commenting on the Liverpool vs Brighton match, Lawrenson said, “It is now 14 games unbeaten for Liverpool in all competitions this season, and they have won 11 of them.

“I am fortunate enough to know from my own playing days how their players must be feeling at the moment – whoever they play, they must think they will win because everyone is flying. Liverpool 3, Brighton 0.”

Speaking on the Newcastle vs Chelsea fixture, Lawrenson said, “The Magpies have a glimmer of hope in that Callum Wilson is back fit and scoring for them but, even without Romelu Lukaku leading the line, Chelsea should win this comfortably. Newcastle 0, Chelsea 2.”

On the Tottenham vs Man United game, Lawrenson said, “This is a tricky game to approach if you are a manager under pressure like Solskjaer is, but Tottenham are still quite scatty themselves, so it would not surprise me if United went there and won. Tottenham 1, Man United 2.”
