Lawro and Barnes predict Irons loss

MarkLawrenson1BBC pundit Mark Lawrenson predicts a West Ham loss against the advice of the BBC super computer called SAM.

Lawro says:

“West Ham beat Southampton on Monday after five successive draws. The goals have dried up since the start for the season, but I think they have done really well just to keep their ducks in a row amid injuries to attackers Dmitri Payet and Diafra Sakho. .

steve“Liverpool look more of a threat away from home at the moment. They are creating so many chances on the road but Christian Benteke – who has scored the matchwinner in their last two games – is a dilemma for Jurgen Klopp.

“The Belgian is scoring goals, but I think Klopp would prefer someone more mobile for his system.While he is their main striker and putting the chances away though, what do you do?”

Lawro’s prediction: 0-2

BBC MOTD presenter Steve Wilson: “I fancy a few goals at the Boleyn where West Ham are unbeaten in seven games. The two extra days of rest that West Ham have had may just swing the game in their favour, but I’m going to stay on the fence and predict a draw.”

Steve Wilson’s prediction: 2-2

SAM’s prediction (Sports Analytics Machine): 1-1

barnes_1655260cJohn Barnes has also predicted that Liverpool will win against West Ham this weekend.

“West Ham showed signs of improvement with a win in their last game against Southampton, but prior to that they had been a little predictable in terms of attacking,” Barnes told Titanbet.co.uk.

“I think Liverpool will have too much for them with an away game suiting Klopp’s team. Goalscorers – Christian Benteke and Andy Carroll.”

John Barnes prediction: 1-2

  1. Who cares what Lawrenson thinks or any one else for that matter.My money is on the irons to dismantle Klopp’s red army.

  2. Who really cares what overpaid pundits think .. They are never up to speed .. Loads of results go against thier “inspired ” thinking .
    If you believe Lawenson Liverpool should be Top and West Ham bottom .
    Liverpool are not the favourites ,, in fact I reckon West Ham are ..
    Obviously getting paid by a gambling agent to persuade the punters .
    West Ham 2 – 0 Liverpool .
    Only a lucky toe punt earnt Liverpool a win at Sunderland .
    We are better than Liverpool … Come on you Hammers .

  3. I always like it when Lawrenson tips us to lose, I see it as a lucky omen 🙂

  4. How long are the contracts on these idiots ?
    Every week I loose faith even in the good ones,
    Last week Shearer said Van Gall does not understand the Man Utd Way,but when asked about the West Ham Way he said it was an illusion,
    So what is the MU way,
    1 Entertaing attacking football ,Tick
    2 Buying the best players from other clubs, ( all right if you have the overdraft )
    3 Bringing on the Youngsters, Hippo stopped us ding that and brought crap instead.
    Could it be a similar way to our system but they can’t bring themselves to say it
