Mark Lawrenson's Premier League predictions

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

Magnus

TNA wrestling star Magnus was born in Norfolk and is a Norwich City fan

His opponent for the midweek Premier League games is Total Nonstop Action Wrestling star Magnus.

The 27-year-old Norwich fan, whose real name is Nick Aldis, has won the TNA Tag Team Championship twice and said: "I think my side Norwich will struggle with Tottenham's pace down the wings. As much as I hope the Carrow Road faithful see them to a draw or better, I fear the worst."

You can see Magnus in action every Sunday night at 21:00 GMT on TNA Impact Wrestling on Challenge TV.

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

On FA Cup fourth-round weekend, Lawro got eight results right out of 16 ties including two perfect scores.

His 12 points meant he lost to three-time FA Women's Cup winner Kelly Smith, who got seven results correct, including three perfect scores, for a total score of 13 points.

Those scores do not count towards Lawro's Premier League average.

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 had come off (also at the bottom of the page).
