Lawro v Mystic Mug Faceoff: Arsenal v Villa

Lawro v Mystic Mug Faceoff: Arsenal v Villa

Lawro has told BBC Sport that he expects a 2-0 win for Arsenal v Villa this weekend.

Lawro said Arsenal were on form v Everton midweek and that Villa will travel to the Emirates with the aim of not getting beaten. I think he`s calling us negative...! Ahem!

He adds, "I certainly do not see them being capable of causing the Gunners' defence too many problems. It was important for Villa that they beat Fulham in their last match because it gives them some more breathing space above the teams at the foot of the table. Villa are going to be fine in terms of staying up but there are issues that need to be sorted out because they have had a disappointing season."

Mystic Mug is split between a draw and a defeat and apologises saying that no amount of polishing his ball results in any thought of a Villa win. Darn it, just to be different to Lawro, Mystic says 0-0.... gulp!

Morning Fear, no way will we keep a clean sheet, our only chance and that is a very slim one is a 1-1. More like a home victory by at least two. You can be sure Mc Leish will show the white flag right from his his team selection, just like v Manure and Spurs, he will go a 1-10 formation. COTVABU

Cant see anything other than setting us up to fail, and achieving it before the whistle kicks off. 2-0 arsenal

I wish Randy would go watch this game!! Two sides who play polar opposite, one plays the way football should be played and the other plays football the way it SHOULD'NT be played..... Maybe he'd realise what we are on about!?!

I think Mcleish will be looking for a very creditable "pleeeeeeease lads don't let them get a cricket score???" result

Hey Irish... no, not sure why mystic thinks we'll keep a clean sheet (maybe because he's seen me washing my quilt today !) I think an Arsenal win is the obvious prediction but Mystic and me like to be different to Lawro! lol

I for one believe Villa will win this one (with a clean sheet) 2-0, Gabby and Gardner to get the goals.

Hutton needs to take out RVP Soon as the whistle blows and we might scrape a 1-1

just a bit unfortunate that Arsenal are in such a rich run of form and we're not.
