Mark Lawrenson has predicted a 2-1 victory for Manchester City over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Thursday.

Explaining his prediction, he told BBC: “Chelsea got a good win against Aston Villa on Sunday but they are still a work in progress. When they play against better teams, they play as if they know it.

“Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is looking to next season in lots of ways – his side still have a fabulous chance of finishing in the Champions League spots this time, but I don’t feel he would be under any pressure if they don’t make it.

“Lampard has had some very good results along the way, but his side have lost nine league games this season.

“I am anticipating an open game at Stamford Bridge, and for City to inflict another defeat.”
