Premier League predictions: Lawro v rapper Aitch

Norwich City’s hopes of staying in the Premier League are still alive – but only just.

The Canaries host Everton on Wednesday (18:00 BST) live on BBC television – the first half is on BBC Two, the second half on BBC One – and the BBC Sport website, but how much longer will we be able to watch them in the top flight?

“I think we are now in the final stages of their fight against the drop,” said BBC football expert Mark Lawrenson. “They could be departing very soon, not because of any lack of effort, but simply because they are just not good enough.

“The bottom line is they have conceded more than double the number of goals they have scored. That’s why they are where they are in the table.”

With eight games to play, Norwich are six points adrift of safety and have the worst goal difference of any top-flight team

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

This week he is up against rapper Aitch, who is a Manchester United fan and delivered his predictions while he was sitting on a bench within sight of Old Trafford.

The 20-year-old from Moston in Manchester, who released his latest EP Polaris at the end of May, says he was only ever going to be a Red – never a Blue.

“There was never a choice – no chance,” he told BBC Sport. “My dad is a Red and I grew up as one too.

“But the mad thing that I realised when I got older and looked back on it was that my dad was actually the odd one out in our family. Most of them are Manchester City fans, and it was his uncle who made him a United fan when everyone else were Blues – but I never really had the option.”
