Midweek Lawro: Tips vs. Tom McFarland (Jungle) • Parlay Game

The Liverpool attack has been under attack for the last few weeks, but will the situation be different when leaders organize Watford on Wednesday?

Mark Lawrenson, BBC football expert, said: "Their top three players are not playing well, but I think the problem with Liverpool is that people have started to solve them.

"They realize that if they sit in the middle of the field and pack their bags, they can evict Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah in the area where they work most often.

"If you can also stop the width of the laterals, then the midfielder will not have the power to play."

Lawro makes predictions for the 380 leading matches this season against a variety of guests.

This week's guest is Tom McFarland, co-founder of the London Soul collective Jungle.

Tom is a QPR subscriber who started watching his local team at the age of five and has been following their highs and lows for 25 years.

The Rangers are unlikely to return to the Premier League for the first time since 2015, after a series of seven consecutive defeats in the league since January 12th.

The Rangers were eighth on Boxing Day, two points behind the play-offs, but dropped to 18th and are just nine points above the relegation zone.

"We had a terrific start to the season, including a 7-1 hammer at West Brom, but we seemed to take a turn and we were great until Christmas," McFarland told BBC Sport.

"I do not know if Steve McClaren has been trying to slightly change our style of play since then, but things have collapsed.

"It did not help that Geoff Cameron was injured, while he had been a real lynchist in front of the back four – the kind of experienced Premier League head you need in the Championship.

"Another key midfielder, Mass Luongo, went to the Asian Cup with Australia and also missed some matches." The players who entered unfortunately did not cut the mustard. "

All bells send 19:45 GMT unless otherwise noted.


Cardiff v Everton

I think Cardiff will quickly overcome Watford's 5-1 defeat on Friday. Neil Warnock will not let his team stop a bad night, but I still feel like Everton.

They had a bad performance, but they will have spent 17 days without a punt match, which is exactly what they needed in their situation.

This will have helped them on the training ground, because it allows them to work, defending adjustment points, for example.

I do not see their break causing problems with their sharpness. Their players probably had a few days off, but the Toffees boss, Marco Silva, had the chance to work hard and prepare them for this match.

The prediction of Lawro: 1-2

Tom's prediction: I think Cardiff is probably going nick. Everton is not configured yet. 2-1

Huddersfield v Wolves

I know Huddersfield had only 10 men for most of his loss to Newcastle on Saturday, but they ended up being beaten.

It seems more than a matter of time before the confirmation of the relegation of the Terriers, but they should be ready for the Championship because they have had time to plan it.

The wolves managed to get a point in Bournemouth despite two questionable penalties. I think they will have too much for their country.

The prediction of Lawro: 0-2

Tom's prediction: 0-2

Leicester v Brighton

The departure of Claude Puel Leicester being delayed for a while, so he was not surprised to see him sacked Sunday.

Some names have been cited to replace his replacement and talk to an interim manager until the end of the season, but the Fox are no longer the same since they won the championship in 2016 and I do not think they'll find a solution. until they sort the locker room.

Yes Puel was in a bad spot and had lost five of his last six league games. He did not use either when he chose a weakened team that lost to Newport County, on the League 2 side, in the FA Cup.

But, from the outside, it seems that there is a problem in Leicester with the power of the player and the importance of the influence of some individuals.

Whether or not it played a role in Puel's departure, I'm expecting to see a reaction from the Leicester players on Tuesday, and I'm also expecting what they're earning – that's what it's all about. is how football works.

Brighton is on a bad pass for the moment, with only two points in six games. Their manager, Chris Hughton, probably thought "it's all we need" when he learned that Puel was gone.

I think the Seagulls will start again, but it is more likely to happen at home because their record on the outside is rather mediocre.

They will face Huddersfield on Saturday at Amex Stadium, which should be the moment they find their way back to victory.

The prediction of Lawro: 2-0

Tom's prediction: 1-1

Newcastle v Burnley (20:00 GMT)

Both teams had good wins this weekend, especially Burnley against Tottenham. They both seem to be heading in the right direction away from the relegation zone.

A draw here would not be a bad result for both sides, and that's exactly what will happen.

The prediction of Lawro: 1-1

Tom's prediction: 2-1


Arsenal v Bournemouth

Arsenal has already eliminated from a South Coast team at Emirates Stadium this week, and I'm still experiencing the same result.

The Gunners went back to fourth place after defeating Southampton on Sunday and although they have some problems to settle, their form against mid-table teams and less is not among them.

Bournemouth has not won on the road in the league since the end of October. I can not see them change this Wednesday.

The prediction of Lawro: 2-0

Tom's prediction: 3-0

Southampton v Fulham

Westham 's defeat of Fulham on Friday could have been a different story if the referee had spotted Javier Hernandez' s handball while he scored the tying goal of the Hammers.

Many people complain about VAR, and it's not perfect, but it's the kind of incident that will help officials make the right decision. As things stand, the goal has remained – and that has changed the game.

West Ham 3-1 Fulham: referee missed handball Hernandez – Claudio Ranieri

Some of Fulham's problems, however, are on their own and they collapsed defensively afterwards.

They were lamentable at the back and, on the only evidence, I have to go with a win at Southampton.

The Saints' recovery under Ralph Hasenhuttl has hit the pads a bit in recent weeks, and this is the biggest game of their season – no question.

The prediction of Lawro: 2-1

Tom's prediction: I would like to think that Southampton will win this game and that it will probably not be pretty. 1-0

Chelsea v Tottenham (20:00 GMT)

I thought Chelsea had played well in the Carabao Cup final, but what happened with Kepa Arrizabalaga obviously overshadowed any improvement in their performances.

Maurizio Sarri needs to settle Kepa, but all it will take is a fine.

The problem with what happened is that it gives the impression that the manager is not in control and, in view of the results he has achieved, it makes the situation worse.

But it is done and now, they both need to go from the front. If that's the case, then the number one kepa should be in goal for this match and he will have the chance to redeem himself on the pitch.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino also had a frustrating weekend.

He was in the news for his reaction after Saturday's defeat by Burnley.

I had predicted a draw knowing Harry Kane would come back. Part of my thought was that when the best player in a team is out, you get a little more of all the other players. Upon his return, they relax a little.

It will take time for Kane to return to his best level but the Spurs are on a difficult race. The derby of North London against Arsenal should also take place this weekend.

The prediction of Lawro: 1-1

Tom's prediction: I'm sorry for Sarri, who tries to apply his own style when his players do not seem to buy it, but it's good that Chelsea beats well. 1-3

Crystal Palace v Man Utd (20:00 GMT)

The injury problems caused by United in their weekend draw in Liverpool will affect the team that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can represent.

He managed very well what happened, but the game itself was very mediocre and Liverpool was not a big threat.

Everything went wrong in the first period – Solskjaer

I just feel that the palace will be different and that it will surprise people here. They play well and they will attack too.

Michy Batshuayi is operational after scoring against Leicester this Saturday, Wilfried Zaha is back from suspension, and I think they're going to cause trouble to United.

The prediction of Lawro: 2-1

Tom's prediction: I like the way United plays under Solskjaer right now. 1-2

Liverpool v Watford (20:00 GMT)

Manchester United and Liverpool both looked like Sunday and I thought Manchester City would have responded better to what had happened than Liverpool.

When United would have lost most of his midfield, City would have just exploded, but that says a little more about Liverpool for the moment.

Liverpool has not created enough – Klopp

I'm just wondering if the boss of the Reds, Jurgen Klopp, could change things here and return to the 4-2-3-1 he used a little bit recently.

In this way, Xherdan Shaqiri enters, Roberto Firmino sinks further into the position of number 10 and Salah passes in the middle as a center-forward rather than wide.

Shaqiri could be the player who will give Liverpool the boost it needs, because it makes things happen.

It's a tough week for the Reds, with the Merseyside derby at Goodison Park on Sunday. What they really want before that is a decent performance and a comfortable win.

I think they're going to win, but they're going to have work, because Watford is fine and he's going to do a serious test.

The prediction of Lawro: 2-0

Tom's prediction: I do not see Watford getting anything at Anfield. I would like Liverpool to win the championship, but I feel they have a big problem, so I think City will probably do it. 2-0

Man City v West Ham (8:00 pm GMT)

West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini, who won the title as boss of the city in 2014, will be well received by local fans, but his team will be in a difficult night.

City has some injury problems, including Fernandinho who will miss a lot in the midfield because they have trouble replacing him, but they have enough good players fit to hurt the Hammers.

Final Carabao Cup: Pep Guardiola injured in the World Cup

It also helps the team of Pep Guardiola who just won the Carabao Cup. This is not really a case of "off & # 39; but it is a piece of silverware in the bag.

Everyone will feel good in the back, but on the same side, Pep will ensure that they stay on the ground.

West Ham carries a threat to the front, but they are not very defensive and I do not think that City will struggle to find a way to get out of it.

The prediction of Lawro: 3-1

Tom's prediction: 3-1

How did Lawro last time?

Since the last round of the Premier League, Lawro has five correct results, comprising two exact scores, from eight matches for a total of 110 points.

He beat rapper Yungen, who got four correct results and an exact score, for a total of 70 points.

Lawro and Yungen both predicted that Manchester City would win Chelsea in the Carabao Cup final, but that match does not count for their total.
