Former Liverpool player, Mark Lawrenson, has predicted outcomes of some of the English Premier League, EPL, fixtures that will be played this weekend.

Chelsea will tackle Tottenham Hotspur in an away Premier League tie on Sunday evening, while West Ham will host Manchester United on Sunday afternoon.

Arsenal will face Burnley in an away Premier League tie on Saturday.

Providing his predictions, Lawrenson told BBC Sport, “Sean Dyche’s new contract is great news for Burnley. They need him more than ever this season if they are going to stay up.

“The Clarets played quite well against Everton on Monday, just like they did against Liverpool at the start of the season, but they did not get anything out of either game.

“I think that might change on Saturday, though. Arsenal got a first goal, and a first win, against Norwich – but this is going to be a very different game, and it will be a real test for them. Burnley 1, Arsenal 1.”

Commenting on the West Ham vs Man Utd match, Lawrenson said, “West Ham striker Michail Antonio is suspended for this game which is a massive blow for them.

“I know Manchester United were far from impressive in the Champions League in midweek but I don’t think it will stop them from making it out of their group.

“If anything, it could be beneficial. The hype around Cristiano Ronaldo’s return might have meant a few people were getting carried away but that defeat should focus them, and remind them how much work they have got to do. West Ham 0, Man United 2.”

On the Tottenham vs Chelsea clash, Lawrenson said, “Tottenham were so disappointing in their defeat to Crystal Palace last week, and I can’t look past Chelsea here.

“They are solid enough to keep Spurs out, and obviously carry a massive threat at the other end of the pitch. Tottenham 1, Chelsea 2.”
