Lawro has told BBC Sport that he thinks Manchester City will beat Villa this weekend. His score prediction is fairly low though to be fair, he says 2-1 to City!
Lawro also says he was 'quite impressed` with us v Newcastle and thought we deserved something out of the game"
' Robbie Keane is proving pretty elusive to pick up in that deeper forward role they use him in, behind Darren Bent. Keane is enjoying his football and I wouldn't be surprised if he is ruing his decision to go back to Los Angeles Galaxy at the end of the month because he has convinced himself and everybody else over the last few weeks that he is good enough to play in the Premier League for another 18 months, especially in that position."
Adding, " Bent has started scoring again too, but I just fancy Manchester City here. They should be too strong for Villa in every department and, with Yaya and Kolo Toure both back soon from the Africa Cup of Nations, we might just see them kick on now after a difficult few weeks."
Lawro was right in his Villa to lose v Newcastle and darn Mystic got it wrong (draw) so they are 8-8 on correct forecasts so far.
Mystic Mug says a Villa loss as well I`m afraid, 3-1 to City.
