Mark Lawrenson predicts Wolves vs Chelsea, Tottenham vs Liverpool, Arsenal, Man City, other games

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

Wolves will host Chelsea at Molineux Stadium on Sunday, while Tottenham will face Liverpool at home.

Leeds United will tackle Arsenal on Saturday evening, while Newcastle United will host Manchester City.

Providing his predictions, Lawrenson told BBC Sport: “Arsenal’s away form has been decidedly ropey of late, I fancy them to get something at Elland Road.

“Mikel Arteta’s side don’t always play well, but they are rarely a pushover these days, which is a good sign. Leeds 1-2 Arsenal.”

Commenting on the Wolves vs Chelsea match, Lawrenson said, “Even if they don’t play well, Thomas Tuchel’s side usually still find a way to win. They are still right in the mix in the title race too, and things will click again for them soon, I am sure of it. Wolves 0-2 Chelsea.”

Speaking on the Newcastle vs Man City tie, Lawrenson said, “This time, I think they will find it a lot easier. City showed against Leeds what kind of form they are in, while Newcastle go into the game after successive defeats at Leicester and Liverpool.

“I think the Magpies will end the week with another loss and will just be hoping they don’t do more serious damage to their goal difference. Newcastle 0-3 Man City.”

On the Tottenham vs Liverpool game, Lawrenson said, “Liverpool haven’t won in London yet this season after drawing with Brentford and losing to West Ham, and I think they might have to wait until they play Chelsea at the start of 2022 to try to put that right. Tottenham 1-1 Liverpool.”
