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.

His opponents for Sunday's Capital One Cup final and the latest round of Premier League fixtures are British band Lawson.

The four-piece, who played at the 2012 T in the Park festival, will be looking to topple rugby league's Kevin Sinfield at the top of the guest leaderboard.

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

Lawro got three results right when predicting last week's FA Cup fifth-round matches, with no perfect scores. His opponent, former Luton boss David Pleat, also scored three points after correctly predicting three results.

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).
