Once again Mark Lawrenson and Paul Merson have revealed their picks for this weekend’s games.  There’s agreement with the Model that Chelsea and Man City will win big, that Crystal Palace will win at Huddersfield, and that Man United will bring Watford’s fine start to an abrupt end.
Lawrenson is between the Model and Merson on his beloved Liverpool, as we think they’ll lose 2-1, Merson thinks they’ll win 2-1, while Lawrenson thinks they’ll draw 1-1 at Tottenham.
There are three exact scores in common between the Model and Lawrenson (at Chelsea, Hudderfield and Everton), and two between the Model and Merson (at Newcastle and Southampton).
Other than that there’s a healthy degree of disagreement between the three sets of forecasts…
