Meanwhile, Lawro says 2-0 to the Villa adding, ‘I think that with Avram Grant in charge of West Ham they will be well-organised and thoroughly prepared for every game. The Hammers won once away from home in the Premier League last season but I think they will improve on that record under Grant. Having said that, I think Villa will try to put the resignation of manager Martin O’Neill behind them with an opening-day win. It is difficult to know how O’Neill’s decision has impacted on his players mentally but I know temporary boss Kevin MacDonald from our time together at Liverpool and he will will ensure they are up for Saturday’s match.’
Mystic Mug says 2-1 to the Villa.
