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

Last week, Lawro took on rap star Lethal Bizzle.

Lawro got four results right, including one perfect score, and his score of six saw him narrowly beat Bizzle (five correct results, with no perfect scores).

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 all Lawro's predictions came off (also at the bottom of the page).
