'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Lawro Predicts - Manchester Untied v Latics


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 Saturday`s Premier League game between Manchester United and Wigan Athletic at Old Trafford will end in a home win for the United, let`s see what his reasons are:


Man Utd v Wigan

They remain unbeaten at home, but this Manchester United team, by their own very high standards, have played some average football this year at Old Trafford. They are starting to get one or two players back from injury, which well help them.

If Wayne Rooney is fit it will be a big boost. Rooney is a world class footballer and is a huge asset. But what will be interesting is what the reaction of the supporters will be to him?

Just when you think Wigan are starting to sink again and have a poor result, they come up with another win - the latest against West Brom at the weekend.

They keep doing it on a regular basis. However, having seen Wigan I do not think they are a team who are capable of closing out matches. Their better players are their more attacking players and by playing defensively you would have to restrict those individuals which does not make sense. It will be an open game, which is why I think United will beat them quite easily.

Prediction: 3-0


Going to disagree here Lawro, we have been much, much better defensive wise this season, well since the opening two games anyhow, I can see the logic in going for a home win but I have a feeling that the Latics are going to spring a surprise and snatch a draw, 1-1 for me.
