Lawro & Champagne Charlie Predictions v Canaries (A)

Postby Wonderwall » Fri Sep 13, 2019 5:17 pm

This week Lawro is up against Chelcee Grimes, Craig Mitch and Reece Parkinson, co-hosts of the BBC's new football show, MOTDx... grimes is dipper so no points for predicting her score...

Lawro says

Norwich do not lack a goal threat with Teemu Pukki in the team, but it is a concern to see them concede so many - 10 goals in four games so far.

That is especially worrying when they have to play Manchester City next, because we know how good Pep Guardiola's side are going forward.

It would be massive confidence boost for the Canaries if they can pick up a point here, but I just don't see it happening.

Lawro's prediction: 0-2
Grimes 2-1
Mitch 1-4
Parkinson 1-0

Charlies says ... l-and-more

You have no reason to look at the concerns of Man City and worry, apart from the injury to Aymeric Laporte perhaps.

Norwich are good going forward - everyone is talking about Teemu Pukki but Todd Cantwell has started great too. The full-backs like to get high, but they will not be doing that against City. The Norwich defenders will be rash against Pep Guardiola's side. The fact that Grant Hanley cannot get in the Scotland side tells you something.

Daniel Farke does not adopt a plan B, which I applaud - the expectation is that you are going to get beat. If you ask 90 per cent of Norwich fans right now if they would take a 4-1 hammering trying to open the game up, or whether they would rather lose 1-0 and not have a shot on goal, I think they would go for the former.

It is not an embarrassment losing to Manchester City but they need to go at it from a positive aspect, which is how you test yourself. Kevin de Bruyne was amazing in Glasgow, as was Raheem Sterling over the international break, which is why I will go with this scoreline.

Saw CCs prediction yesterday. Take that all day.
Surprised at a 2-0 for Lawro. Thought this might have been one of those rare 3-0 occasions

Norwich like to play football, always a risk against us, but are also missing their 2 starting centre halves and 5 other players.

This could be a walloping.

Charlie likes to go for it doesn't he? Nothing can tempt Lawro away from 2/0 though
