Mark Lawrenson's Premier League predictions

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

Richard Osman

Will Lawro or Richard Osman end up pointless after this week's predictions?

His opponent for the latest round of Premier League and FA Cup games will be Pointless co-host Richard Osman, who will be making his predictions on Friday afternoon.

Osman is a Fulham fan and a season ticket holder at Craven Cottage. He will no doubt be hoping he does not end up with a score to match the aim of contestants that appear on his TV programme.

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

In last week's Premier League and FA Cup games, Lawro got six of the 10 results right, including one perfect score, and his score of eight saw him beat Matt Lawrence, Millwall's captain in the 2004 FA Cup final, who got three correct results with no perfect scores.

Only the six Premier League games count towards Lawro's average and Lawrence's score, which will be updated when the remaining games from the weekend's programme are played. As things stand, Lawro has six points, Lawrence has two.

In the FA Cup, Lawro claimed a narrow 2-1 victory over Lawrence. These scores will not count towards their league average or total.

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).
