Lawro says :-
Southampton v West Ham (19:45 GMT)
Like Solskjaer at United, Southampton have undergone a transformation under Ralph Hasenhuttl, who got another win at the weekend when his new side beat Huddersfield.
Saints are playing with purpose and scoring goals and when you watch them you are left trying to remember the problems they had under previous boss Mark Hughes.
With any new manager, there is nothing better than winning games straight away because you are almost convincing your players instantly that you really do know what you are on about.
West Ham’s run of four straight wins ended with their defeat by Watford, and I have a feeling they will be reflecting on another loss after this game is over.
Lawro’s prediction: 2-0
Jim’s prediction: 0-1
- continue on the Hassenütl express and win by 2 or more goals
- the Hassnehütl express gets hit by engineering works and force a victory by the odd goal
- bore draw
- score draw
- play the party poopers and win
