Ok, so Lawro and Mystic Mug are both one all (neither with the right score but both correct with Villa win)
Villa travel to Newcastle United and Lawro says
‘I expect them to give Aston Villa a physical battering, especially with Andy Carroll leading the attack.’
Adding, ‘I know Kevin McDonald well from our days together at Liverpool and I wonder if his relative lack of managerial experience could harm his chances of getting the Villa job on a full-time basis. It is going to be an interesting season for Villa. They have just signed midfielder Stephen Ireland from Manchester City – a good buy, in my opinion – but have they finished selling players?’
And predicts 2-1 to the Geordies.

Mystic Mug thinks Lawro is having a giraffe and says a nice tight 1-0 away win for the Villa boys.
