Lawro told the BBC site:

‘I was starting to fear the worst for West Ham, with the dreaded R word moving into the equation, but they had a top result at Chelsea.

The Hammers are still struggling to win games but will have taken confidence from that 1-1 draw.

Aston Villa look more dangerous away from home than at Villa Park.

With James Milner and Ashley Young out wide, and Gabriel Agbonlahor playing through the middle, they break with pace and power and possess a great threat.’

Murph will be along later in a spectacular return to match preview heaven!
