Former Liverpool defender and current Match of the Day pundit Mark 'Lawro` Lawrenson has done his round of predictions for the BBC and he is predicting that Saturday`s Premier League clash between Manchester City and Wigan Athletic at the Eastlands will end in a home win for City, let`s see what his reasons are:
Man City v Wigan
"You have to fancy City because a) they are at home and b) they are up against a Wigan side which looks pretty vulnerable to me.
I think we saw a good example against Manchester United on Saturday of what the Latics are like - basically they need to score the first goal or they are in trouble. Wigan had loads of chances and Edwin van der Sar kept United in the game for a while but, when Roberto Martinez's side fell behind, they were then cut open far too easily.
Manchester City are definitely not going to win the league now so the pressure is off them in that respect.
They just need to keep bashing away to make sure they pick up enough points to finish in the top four, especially with Chelsea looking like they might be going on a run.
Not much of a fan of the Latics is Lawro, neither does he know too much about us, the last three games before the United match the Latics fell behind and in each one they came back to either draw or win, I`m going for a 1-1 draw on Saturday, no other reason than we need the points and we are a bit of a bogey side for them.
