Oh my good Lord Paul McGrath, Lawro has broken with his recent tradition of tipping Villa to win!

It seems the BBC pundit is tipping Villa to draw up at St James Park.

The non-moustached one said:

‘In 10 matches this season Martin O’Neill has hardly changed the Villa team and it shows in their results.

He has got partnerships throughout the team, everybody knows what each other is doing, where they like the ball, and their strengths and weaknesses.

There are little glimpses that Newcastle are getting it together. Joe Kinnear has done OK. They’ve become a little bit more direct but the signs are that their confidence is coming back.’

And predicts a 1-1 draw.

Meanwhile so far in our poll, over 70% are tipping Villa to win. What is your score prediction?
