Mark 'Lawro' Lawrenson has done his weekly round of Premier League predictions for the BBC, the Match of the Day pundit is forecasting that Saturday's clash between Chelsea and Wigan Athletic at Stamford Bridge will end in a home win, let's take a look at his reasons:
Chelsea v Wigan
Chelsea will have the Champions League on their minds after completing their quarter-final victory over Benfica on Wednesday but you would expect Roberto di Matteo to make some changes and freshen up his squad as he has done in the past, as they continue their bid for the top four.
The Blues have got their FA Cup semi-final to think about too, and the fixture scheduling could have been kinder to them, which is why I think the number of games they have got to play will hold them back on all three fronts.
Tiredness should not affect them here, though, and I think they will be too strong for Wigan. The Latics are in good form but I think their mini-revival will end here.
Wigan are one of my tips to go down, but what will keep them fighting is that unlike say, Wolves, who never look like they think they are going to score, Wigan come forward with people like Victor Moses and Hugo Rodallega thinking that they will.
Mini-revival? Hugo Rodallega? Obviously Lawro has not been watching us recently, my prediction for this game is 1-1 and the great run of form, just one defeat in eight, will continue
