Lawro Audit 2: EPL Week 5

Posted: September 16, 2016

Another week, another Lawro Audit for the English Premiership. What are the stories coming out of the last week in football? Well, Manchester City came out on top in the Manchester derby. It was a deserved win. Leicester got thumped by Liverpool, who look a quality outfit going forward, but still shaky at the back. And then Chelsea blew it against Swansea, going 1-0 up, then going 2-1 down, before salvaging a draw. It was a bit of a mad week in Europe, too, with Tottenham and Manchester United both losing, Arsenal drawing, and Leicester, Manchester City and Southampton winning. Also, a quick shout-out to Dundalk, who got Ireland’s first ever Europa League point with a draw away to AZ Alkmaar. It was a great result for the Irish champions, who came within a whisker of the Champions League. Their draw was also a huge coupon buster, and the bookies will have been laughing all the way to the bank.

So, how did Mark Lawrenson get on last week? Well, if you were amazed by Lawro turning a huge profit last week, and getting his followers into a profit after only three weeks of the season, prepare to be amazed again, as the Liverpool legend managed to get a whopping three correct results and no correct scores. Yes, he managed to predict the obvious Arsenal and Liverpool wins, and also the Crystal Palace win. He got stuffed on the rest. So, he ended up with a weekly loss of -13.21 units and we’ve gone from a nice profit to a loss of -5.66 units. Which means that after four weeks of the English Premiership season, Mark Lawreson is struggling. Will it get better this week? I really do hope so. Oh, and if you were wondering, Lawro’s predictions went up far too late for the Friday game between Chelsea and Liverpool. No doubt he was on the sauce with the other Liverpool fans in London in preparation for the game and forgot.

Is Mark Lawrenson going to get us back into profit this week? Well, he’s gone for all the bankers again, and there’s a lot of short prices there. So I think he’s going to have to get a few correct scores just to make any kind of profit this week. And, as usual, he’s gone for his safe score selections of 2-0 wins and 3-0 wins for the more comfortable wins. It could be a tough one here, but I’m keeping the faith with Lawro, which will probably cost me big time this week.
