Premier League predictions: Lawro v Murray & Tav from indie band FUR

The 186th Manchester derby takes place at Old Trafford on Saturday, but will it be the Reds or the Blues who prevail?

"I know Manchester City have had the odd bad result against Manchester United recently, but they have to be favourites going into this game," said BBC football expert Mark Lawrenson.

"I just feel when City play United now, if there is something really riding on the game, then they very rarely put in a poor performance and, often, United just can't get the ball off them."
