Mark Lawrenson's predictions

BBC Sport expert Mark Lawrenson

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

Wigan Warriors star Sam Tomkins
Tomkins plays for Wigan Warriors in the Challenge Cup final at Wembley on Saturday

This week he takes on England rugby league star Sam Tomkins, whose Wigan Warriors side face Hull in the Challenge Cup final at Wembley on Saturday.

Tomkins is a Manchester United fan, as you can probably tell by the fact he is backing David Moyes's side to thrash Chelsea 8-0 on Monday. He also thinks Arsenal will suffer a second straight Premier League defeat, but feels Manchester City will see off Cardiff.

You can see all of his predictions on Football Focus at 11:30 BST on BBC One and this website in the UK.

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

Last week, Lawro got five results right, with three perfect scores. His score of 11 saw him beat Hollywood actor Jason Sudeikis [4], who got four correct results with no perfect scores.

For Wednesday's game between Chelsea and Aston Villa, Lawro backed Jose Mourinho's side to win 2-0.

This season, we will 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).
