LAWRO: Brentford got smashed last week and Brighton lost to Tottenham, it’s interesting at Brighton at the moment with their new manager. Does he stick or twist with how they play? Brentford normally bounce back from a defeat and I’m just not sure what to expect from Brighton at the moment. Brentford 2-1 Brighton.
LAWRO: Leicester took the lead and lost to Bournemouth last week while Palace beat Leeds which was a good result for them. You thought Leicester would kick on after beating Nottingham Forest 4-0 but things are just not good there at the moment. Leicester 1-1 Crystal Palace.
LAWRO: Gary O’Neil’s still in charge at Bournemouth and doing well. I think this will be a good game as both are doing well, better than I thought they would. Because of home advantage I’ll go with Fulham to win – just. Fulham 2-1 Bournemouth.
LAWRO: Julen Lopetegui’s turned Wolves down for personal reasons so they’ll still be scurrying about looking for a new manager. It’s back to the drawing board and they’ve lost three in a row now. Diego Costa’s getting fitter and better and I don’t know if Nottingham Forest will be able to handle him. Wolves 1-0 Nottingham Forest.
LAWRO: Everton are going well which has been a bit of a surprise for all of us, they’ve been really solid. Spurs had a good win in the Champions League during the week and Son Heung-min’s back amongst the goals. They’re a bit hit and miss but I’m pretty sure they’ll beat Everton. Tottenham 2-0 Everton.
LAWRO: I watched Aston Villa’s last two matches and, for all the control they had, they created very few opportunities. They’re not sure whether to go with one or two up front and when teams just set up to stop them that’s what happens, they stop them. It’s going well for Graham Potter at Chelsea, they’ve got a great squad and they all look like they want to impress him. Aston Villa 0-2 Chelsea.
LAWRO: I was very impressed with Arsenal against Liverpool last week. They conceded twice but still managed to get the win. I think Leeds got what they deserved against Crystal Palace which was nothing. The thing with Arsenal is that they’re expected to win and the pressure starts now with them but I think they’ll win this. Leeds 1-2 Arsenal.
LAWRO: Newcastle come here on the back of a couple of very good wins. Manchester United will rotate a lot during the week so they’ll be fresh. Newcastle are a different kettle of fish this season, especially on the road, and they’ve got some good defensive players but I fancy a home win here. Manchester United 2-0 Newcastle.
LAWRO: You get the feeling that somebody at Southampton is waiting to press the button and it’s not the manager. He’s having to defend himself after every game which is never good. West Ham won last time out and looked a lot like their old selves. Southampton 1-2 West Ham.
LAWRO: I’m going to this and I’m really excited to see the sensation of the season in the flesh. Manchester City said Erling Haaland was tired and he didn’t play during the week but he’ll play against Liverpool. No doubt about that.
Liverpool were a little bit unlucky against Arsenal and they’re still conceding lots of goals. I think City will be happy to take a point here, regardless of how well they’re playing, and move on to next week. Liverpool 1-1 Manchester City.
