Mark Lawrenson Has Predicted A Second Straight Unbeaten Season For Liverpool
Liverpool have had an incredible season, and could yet come second in the league with 97 points, and yet former Reds defender Mark Lawrenson thinks they should be unbeaten, for the second year in a row.
Predicting football results from one week to the next is an almost impossible task, or at least it is most seasons. This term guessing that Manchester City and Liverpool were going to win has all but guaranteed you two correct predictions a week.
Last season Manchester City won the league title with 100 points and were 19 clear of second placed Manchester United. This season 98 points might be enough for Pep Guardiola's team but with Liverpool likely to only be one point back.
That means Jurgen Klopp's team would have enough points to win the league every other Premier League season, in fact they already do, having only lost once this season.
However according to former Match of the Day pundit Mark Lawrenson they shouldn't have lost at all this season, or last.
Lawro gives his predictions on BBC Sport every week and, as per My Football Facts, his 2-0 win for Liverpool vs Wolves this weekend means they wouldn't have lost all season, but would actually bo on less points:
The stats, according to the 61 year old, show that the Reds would draw 11 of their games this season, which is actually just the seven in reality.
It's rare that one team beats the 90 point mark, two is highly unlikely and yet Lawro has somehow also got three teams with 90 plus after somehow expecting THIS Manchester United team to win nearly every week.
Should Huddersfield lose 5-0 to Southampton this weekend then the former Preston North End defender would have actually got their season spot on.
Incredibly Lawro also predicted that Klopp's side would go the entirety of last season unbeaten as well but had them finishing fourth place.
Last year's league table also had three teams on 90+ points with City and United being joined by Spurs, imagine if that ever happened.
It's fair to say the odd bit of bias might come into Lawro's predictions but he's weirdly not even been biased enough this season considering Liverpool's monstrous season.
