Mark Lawrenson's Premier League predictions

BBC Sport expert Mark Lawrenson

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

Example
Example (aka Elliott Gleave) is a lifelong Fulham fan

His opponent for the latest round of Premier League fixtures is singer, rapper and Fulham fan Example.

Example is tipping the Cottagers to see off champions Manchester City and continue their impressive start to the season.

He also thinks Arsenal will beat leaders Chelsea in a north versus west London derby, expects Norwich to overcome Liverpool and feels Manchester United will be too strong for Tottenham.

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

Last weekend, Lawro took on double Olympic gold medallist Mo Farah.

Lawro got five results right, including one perfect score, but his score of seven was not enough to beat Farah (six correct results including one perfect score). His score of eight points leaves him third in the 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).
