Lawro v Mystic Mug - Fulham v Villa

Lawro v Mystic Mug - Fulham v Villa

Lawro has predicted on BBC Sport that Fulham will beat Villa 2-1 this weekend.

The match of the day pundit says the key for Fulham could be the fitness of striker Berbatov.

Adding, "The Cottagers were very poor in the first half of their draw against Southampton last time out, but they are a different animal at home and this is the sort of game they could and should win."

And on Villa.... "Aston Villa, meanwhile, are in for a long, hard season. The dilemma for their manager Paul Lambert is that, when he plays with a lone striker, Christian Benteke gives them something extra in terms of holding the ball up, while in Darren Bent they have a goal poacher. Lambert's problem is trying to marry the two together. Maybe his best option is to bite the bullet and play the pair of them to try to win as many games as possible, but I can't see him trying that at Craven Cottage."

Mystic Mug is sadly losing 3-1 to Lawro, that is what you get for trying to be positive! Be nice to predict something different for this game to draw closer to Lawro but Muggy says he has no optimism at the moment, not for the short term anyway, with so many players and the manager still finding their feat.

They've been strong at home this season. If we go behind I see us being beat soundly. However I think we might nick a goal against the run of play and hold on galliantly until then last 10 mins when they equalise. So: 1-1! And a decent point it would be too
