Lawro Predicts - Liverpool v Latics

Lawro Predicts - Liverpool v Latics



Former Liverpool defender and Match of the Day pundit Mark Lawrenson has done his weekly round of predictions, he is forecasting that Saturday's clash at Anfield between Liverpool and the Latics will end in a home win, let's take a look at his reasons:

Liverpool v Wigan

Liverpool had quite a few players who played a large part of England's friendly defeat by Sweden on Wednesday, which might help Wigan a bit.

I see the Latics are back to their unpredictable best, though, following up impressive displays and wins over West Ham and Tottenham by losing to West Brom.

But that's Wigan for you. If anyone asks you what they are like then just point to those results - winning at White Hart Lane and then being kept at arm's length by the Baggies, who easily beat them at the DW Stadium.

Wigan won this fixture last season, and they deserved it too, but it was in March - which is the wrong time to play them. This should be the right time.

Reds boss Brendan Rodgers came out after last weekend's draw with Chelsea and said that, if his side can do better than last season's eighth place, then that would be a fantastic achievement.

I don't know if he was just playing down expectations but Liverpool should not just be aiming for the top eight, they need to finish there - and they have enough ability to do so. They need to start winning games, and they should start on Saturday.

Prediction: 2-0


Got to disagree, I feel that we will get a sneaky away win here, I'm going for 1-2 in the Latics favour
