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.

Rapper Devlin
As a boy, Devlin's favourite Tottenham player was Teddy Sheringham

His opponents for the next round of Premier League fixtures are rappers Devlin and Wretch 32.

Devlin, who is releasing his new album 'A Moving Picture' on 4 February, is a Tottenham fan, while Wretch 32 supports their north London rivals Arsenal.

Wretch 32 is going for an Arsenal win against champions Manchester City on Sunday.

Devlin is backing Spurs to beat QPR - managed by their former boss Harry Redknapp - on Saturday, and he thinks the two Manchester clubs will both pick up three points in their games against Liverpool and the Gunners.

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

On FA Cup third-round weekend, Lawro got eight results right from the 21 ties he looked at, including one perfect score.

His 10 points meant he was beaten by Wimbledon legend Lawrie Sanchez, who got 11 results correct, including three perfect scores, for a total score of 17 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).
