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

Last weekend, Lawro took on singer and rapper Example.

Lawro got four results right, including one perfect score, but his score of six was not enough to beat Example (five correct results including one perfect score). His score of seven points leaves him fourth in the guest scoreboard (at the bottom of the page).

This season, we will also be keeping a record of the total scores for Lawro and his guests (below), and showing a table of how the Premier League would look if Lawro's predictions came off (also at the bottom of the page).
