We’re well into the 2023/24 Premier League season now and we’re gearing up for a busy Saturday and Sunday in the English top flight. There’s three 3pm Saturday games before a double bill of Brentford v Everton and Burnley v Manchester United on the box at 5.30pm and 8pm respectively.

With a hefty midweek European fixture list there’s also five games on the Sunday with Arsenal v Spurs in the North London Derby the undoubted highlight for neutrals. After that capital clash it’s Sheffield United v Newcastle United at 4.30pm.

So, with the weekend hurling towards us once again, there’s no time to waste and it’s only right that we bring in our resident tipster and Premier League predicting guru, Mark Lawrenson who will be battling it out with a Paddy punter in our Challenge Lawro game. But first, here’s what Lawro’s crystal ball has revealed this weekend.

Saturday 3pm: Crystal Palace v Fulham

Crystal Palace lost away at Aston Villa last time while Fulham snuck past Luton. I see Roy Hodgson’s back and looks to be fine after being taken ill last week. I’ll go for a Draw. These two will be fine, looking at the teams at the bottom of the table, so there’s not too much pressure on either. Crystal Palace 1-1 Fulham.

Saturday 3pm: Luton v Wolves

Wolves should have been 2-0 up against Liverpool last Saturday but went on to lose 3-1. That would have been tough for Liverpool to come back from but they’re not a million miles away from being decent. Luton are still finding their way, they tighten things up at the back and then they can’t score. It’s going to be difficult for them. Luton 1-2 Wolves.

Saturday 3pm: Man City v Nottingham Forest

This will be a big win for Manchester City. Nottingham Forest have made a decent start but it’s away at City, they’ve won every game in the Premier League so far and Pep Guardiola’s back. Manchester City 4-0 Nottingham Forest.

Saturday 5.30pm: Brentford v Everton

TV: Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League

I thought Brentford would lose at Newcastle and they duly did, I fancy them to bounce back here though. Obviously it looks like good news for Everton that they’re being taken over and that the stadium’s looking sorted, on the pitch I’m not so sure. Brentford 2-0 Everton.

Saturday 8pm: Burnley v Manchester United

TV: TNT Sports 1 and TNT Sports Ultimate

Burnley scrambled a draw at Forest on Monday, they can’t win at home and they’re too open – but you could say that about Manchester United as well! United are just in a mess and you could argue that the three major components of the team aren’t working but it’s Burnley and I’ll think United will have enough. Burnley 0-2 Manchester United.

Sunday 2pm: Arsenal v Tottenham

TV: Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League

I fancy Arsenal here. They dispatched of PSV easily and could have beaten Everton by a far greater scoreline than the 1-0. Tottenham felt like they’d won the FA Cup with that late, late win over Sheffield United. You know this is always going to be tight but I just think Arsenal will have too much for them. Arsenal 2-0 Tottenham.

Sunday 2pm: Brighton v Bournemouth

Brighton were brilliant at Man United and it’s Bournemouth at home who have done okay so far. Can’t see past Brighton because I think Bournemouth will just go there and man the barricades. Brighton 2-0 Bournemouth.

Sunday 2pm: Chelsea v Aston Villa

Both have been a bit hit and miss so I’ll go with the Draw. Chelsea are still sorting out all the players – who goes where!? I was surprised by Villa, if you had said they’d have lost two out of five I would have argued with you because they’re really well organised but they’ll pick up. Chelsea 1-1 Aston Villa.

Sunday 2pm: Liverpool v West Ham

Liverpool rode their luck a little bit at Wolves last week but I’ll back them here as I think Virgil van Dijk and Ibrahima Konate will both come back in. Liverpool 2-0 West Ham.

Sunday 4.30pm: Sheffield United v Newcastle

TV: TV: Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League

It was a big result for Newcastle beating Bournemouth last week to end their poor form. It was also a good result in Milan on Tuesday so they’re back on it and I fancy an away win. Sheffield United 0-2 Newcastle.

So you’ve heard what Lawro has to say and, all throughout the 2023/24 Premier League campaign, Paddy’s going to be dishing out free bets to his shop customers who can out-shout our mighty game-guessing guru each and every match day.

The rules are simple, beating Lawro is the tricky bit

All you have to do is predict the score of every Premier League fixture every game week. Get the score bang on and you pocket three points, get the W-D-W result right and one point is added to your tally. Rack up more points than our Lawro and you’ve got £/€50 in free bets heading your way!

Easy, right? Well it was for Ali the Manchester United fan from our Bedford shop who became the first challenger to take down the king this season in a 9-6 win last week, largely thanks to getting Liverpool’s 3-1 win over Wolves spot on. With Lawro licking his wounds it falls to Gary from our Colchester shop who’s bullish in predicting back-to-back defeats for our Lawro.
