How do the experts see Wigan Athletic’s game against Liverpool, let’s have a look at how the pundits and bookies see this game going at the weekend….

Mark Lawrenson has gone for a 2-1 win to Liverpool at the DW Stadium on Wednesday. The BBC pundit is currently lying 2nd in the Cockney Latic Prediction League and that shows that he knows his stuff.

He said about his prediction; Liverpool had an excellent result at the weekend with the win over Chelsea, which makes it four wins on the trot now including Europe, but it’s no good beating Chelsea if you can’t beat Wigan.

Roberto Martinez’s side must be the most difficult team in the Premier League to predict. When things are good, they look comfortably like they could finish 14th or 15th, but then on other days, they play like they’d struggle to finish in the top 10 in the Championship


Of the Prediction League users (sponsored by Workit Recruitment) 20% are going for 1-1, 7/1 on Betfair.

Liverpool are off the back of beating league leaders Chelsea at the weekend and on a run of four wins.

Latics will be looking to take advantage of a Pool team that usually comes to the DW to expect us to roll over (like the last two visits!!!)
