Premier League predictions: Lawro v Greg James, BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show host

Lawro's predictions

Liverpool will look to continue their perfect start to the season this weekend but face a tricky test against in-form Leicester.

Jurgen Klopp's side have won all three of their Premier League games so far and are yet to concede a goal but the Foxes have recovered well since an opening day loss to Manchester United with back-to-back wins.

Lawro is making predictions for all 380 top-flight matches this season, against a variety of guests.

This week's guest is BBC Radio 1 presenter Greg James.

Man Utd have 'lost it' - Greg James' Premier League predictions

Greg has just completed his second week as Radio 1's Breakfast Show host and he said: "The early starts are fine once you get here. Getting here is the real pain, but it is a great fun job to do and I love it."

Greg is an Arsenal fan but admits he doesn't quite have the same passion for football as he did as a kid.

"When Blackburn won the Premier League that was when I was obsessed with it," he added. "I was a proper Arsenal fan. I got all the sticker books I had all the kits but then I just sort of drifted.

"I don't play any more because I am terrible."

Match report


Carrdiff v Arsenal

Cardiff 2-3 Arsenal

Lawro's prediction: 0-2

Arsenal... interesting. Goals are not a problem for them, but it will be a culture shock for some of the new players going to Cardiff. However, I think they have enough. Cardiff know they will be scrapping for points all season. They will give everything they've got and they have a a manager who knows how to get them going.

Greg's prediction: This is going to be tough to take for Arsenal fans. I don't think we're quite their yet. I want to think Arsenal will win but I have to be realistic. 1-1

Match report

Burnley v Man Utd

Burnley 0-2 Man Utd

Lawro's prediction: 0-2

Burnely are out of the Europa League and struggling. Manchester Utd are in a bit of a mess - it is time to get their heads screwed on and get a win.

Greg's prediction: This is going to be an enormous game. The Lancs derby. I do a podcast with James Anderson, England's greatest ever bowler, who is from Burnley, so I have to back them. I think Man Utd have lost it, they've gone, they're dead. I'm going for it. 3-1

Match report

Watford v Tottenham

Watford 2-1 Tottenham

Lawro's prediction: 1-2

Both these teams have started really well. With Watford, I always worry they will have that dip and look like a team cascading towards relegation - but I like the manager. Tottenham did seem to miss the boat by not signing anyone during the summer transfer window, but they have some really good players.

Greg's prediction: 0-2
