David Lloyd says that he is sticking to his prediction that England will beat Australia 10-0 over the next two Ashes series.

Former England all-rounder David Lloyd has insisted that he still believes that they can achieve back-to-back whitewashes in the Ashes.

The Three Lions lead Australia 2-0 in current series and are favourites to claim a spotless record on home soil.

However, Lloyd also feels that England have enough in their locker to achieve five-straight victories out in Australia when the two teams meet for the second series early next year.

"Australia are at sixes and sevens, aren't they?" Lloyd told Sky Sports News.

"Everyone's ridiculing myself and Botham for saying England will beat Australia 10-0 over the two series - and Australia might well get a draw here at Old Trafford because this is a flat pitch - but I've seen nothing so far to make me change my mind."

England face Australia in the third Test of the Ashes at Old Trafford on August 1.
