Mark Lawrenson's Premier League predictions

BBC Sport football expert Mark Lawrenson is pitting his wits against a different guest pundit each week this season.

His opponent for the latest round of Premier League matches is darts legend Bobby George, who is working as a BBC pundit at the 2012 BDO World Championships at Frimley Green this week.

George is tipping trebles all round for the top three teams, expecting Manchester United, Tottenham and Manchester City to put three goals apiece past Bolton, Wolves and Wigan - and collect three points too of course.

A correct result is worth ONE point while a correct score earns THREE points.

On FA Cup third-round weekend, Lawro got 14 results right out of the 21 ties he looked at, including three perfect scores.

His 20 points meant he beat Wrexham legend Mickey Thomas, who scored 18 points while correctly predicting the shock of the round in Swindon's win over Wigan, as well as Wrexham's draw at Brighton.

Those scores from the Cup do not count towards Lawro's Premier League average, but Tottenham's win over Everton this week, in a game rearranged from the opening day of the campaign, means Samuel L Jackson improves his score by one point.
