Wigan Athletic entertain Manchester United in tomorrow`s Premier League clash at the DW Stadium, BBC pundit and ex-Liverpool defender Mark ‘Lawro` Lawrenson can`t see past a victory for our neighbours from up the East Lanc`s Road, let`s see what his reasons are:

Wigan v Man Utd


Wigan could not have enjoyed a worse couple of days, to be honest. First they lose to Wolves and then Manchester United lose to Burnley, which is exactly what the Latics didn’t need ahead of a big Premier League encounter against the champions.

If anything is going to concentrate the minds of Manchester United’s players it is that defeat and I think you’ll see a very strong and determined side come out to face Wigan on Saturday.

I think United will be too much for Wigan here, but the Latics will be all right this season. Roberto Martinez and a couple of his new players have to get used to the Premier League, but if the manager gets them playing anything like he did Swansea last season, they’ll be absolutely fine.


Verdict: 0-2

Well Lawro I think you are wrong again, United aren`t the same team as last year, they have struggled in the last two games and I see no reason why that will change tomorrow, Roberto`s men will play their patient keep ball and Fergies lot will be chasing shadows for long periods, I see the game ending 1-1
