Lawro Predicts - Man City v Latics




Mark 'Lawro' Lawrenson has done his weekly round of Premier League predictions for the BBC, the Match of the Day pundit is forecasting that Saturdays clash between Manchester City and Wigan Athletic will end in a convincing home win for Mancini's men, let's take a look at his reasons:

Man City v Wigan

Manchester City have been nothing short of outstanding since the first day of the season.

Their biggest problem this weekend will be that with so many top quality players almost their entire squad will have been away on international duty and so could be coming back with all sorts of knocks and niggles.

Saying that, manager Roberto Mancini has such a magnificent squad they will be strong whichever team they put out so they'll have no problems against Wigan.

Wigan have made a decent start - but they have played the three teams that have come up, two of them at home, so their points tally and league position is a little bit flattering in my opinion. In fact, I would be slightly worried as a Wigan fan that they didn't win all those games.

This is the Latics' first real test of the season, for sure, and I don't see them passing it.

Prediction: 3-0


I`m going to be a little bit braver than the master predictor and go for a 1-1 draw, I think City will have one eye on their Champions League game with Napoli and possibly take us a bit too lightly
