Premier League predictions: Lawro resumes winter-break battle with snowboarder Katie Ormerod

Chelsea’s bid to secure a top-four place has wobbled in recent weeks but they have the chance to get back on track on Monday when they host Manchester United.

“The Blues are still favourites for fourth,” said BBC football expert Mark Lawrenson said: “They just need to improve their focus in matches.

“They have dropped points by taking their eye off the ball a little bit when you least expect it, which has seen them let some points slip away.”

Lawro is making predictions for all 380 top-flight matches this season, against a variety of guests.

This week he resumes his winter-break battle with British snowboarder Katie Ormerod, who was his opponent last week too when this set of fixtures started.

Katie correctly predicted the outcome of two of the three Premier League fixtures played last weekend

Storm Ciara scuppered Manchester City’s game with West Ham on Sunday, so only three Premier League games were played last weekend in the first part of the staggered break.

So far, Katie leads Lawro by 20 points to 10 but, with the remaining seven fixtures taking place over the next six days – including the rearranged City versus Hammers game – there is still all to play for.

A correct result (picking a win, draw or defeat) is worth 10 points. The exact score earns 40 points.

It should be an entertaining one too, because they are both really good going forward and always create a lot of chances.
