Mark Lawrenson has really stuck his neck out on the BBC this week saying 2-0 to Man Utd!
'Some might say it's a good time to play Villa, what with their recent results, but Martin O'Neill has had two weeks to take stock. He'll maybe go back to a system of 4-5-1/4-3-3, with Gabriel Agbonlahor cutting through the middle. However, Alex Ferguson will have his strongest team out - he has to - and it will be as narrow a 2-0 result as it's possible to be.'
What we really need is Everton to be beaten by Wigan and for Manchester City to do us a favour v Arsenal!
