Former Liverpool defender and current Match of the Day pundit Mark 'Lawro` Lawrenson has done his weekly round of predictions for the BBC and he is predicting that the game between West Ham United and Wigan Athletic at Upton Park on Saturday will end in a home win for the Hammers, lets see what his reasons are:
West Ham v Wigan
I went to Anfield on Monday and I was very surprised because West Ham laid down and died. They did everything but have their tummy scratched by Liverpool in the 3-0 defeat.
Half the team did not seem to be committed whatsoever and I think their manager Gianfranco Zola will walk at the end of the season even if they do stay up.
They were perhaps thinking of this Wigan match while they were at Liverpool, believing a win here will be enough to keep them safe, which is very dangerous.
However, I am going to go for a home win here. The only caveat to that is, with Wigan, they are unpredictable. Nobody could foresee what they did in the last few minutes against Arsenal on Sunday.
I disagree totally here Mr Lawrenson, the pressure is now off the Latics and I think we will see a different performance from Roberto`s men whilst West Ham will still be a little tense and have one eye looking back towards Hull, I can see a very positive result and am going for 1-2 Latics win
