Liverpool legend Mark Lawrenson has predicted the two games involving two of the top six teams namely Chelsea and Manchester United.

The former Liverpool defender is a pundit with BBC Sport.

On the Chelsea game, Mark Lawrenson said that Frank Lampard was brave for his selection against Manchester United in their Premier League opener and that he would still back them for a win against Leicester City.

Lampard and his Chelsea players were beaten 4-0 by Manchester United who got their goals through the likes of Marcus Rashford (2), Anthony Martial and substitute Daniel James.

Chelsea then went on to lose the UEFA Super Cup on penalties to Premier League rivals Liverpool.

The two English clubs had earlier served up a four-goal thriller before the dreaded penalty shootout.

Chelsea have not won in their first two games of the season and Frank Lampard would be hoping that the situation would change for the third game of the season, a home match with Leicester City who won the corresponding fixture 1-0 through a Jamie Vardy strike.

On the Wolves game against Manchester United, Mark Lawrenson said it would be a difficult game for the Red Devils before adding that they will only get a win if quality players like Paul Pogba play to their true potentials.
