Premier League predictions: Lawro v actor and singer Zac Efron

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

His opponent for the weekend's Premier League fixtures is former High School Musical actor Zac Efron, now starring in new comedy 'Bad Neighbours'.

Zac Efron offers his Football Focus predictions

Efron admits he does not know much about football but recently won the award for 'Best Shirtless Performance'  at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards, an accolade that is likely to continue to elude Lawro.

"I get to a few LA Galaxy games, but not enough," Efron told BBC Sport. "It's fun and the sport is really starting to grow in the United States.

"I saw David Beckham play a few times and watched a game next to him, which was awesome. He is a great dude."

"When I am in the UK, I always try to get to a game. I saw Arsenal play Chelsea in 2012. The chants you have here are insane - like a long poem that every single person knows. It is a little different to baseball."
