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

In last weekend's predictions, Lawro got six results right, with no perfect scores. His score of six saw him beaten by actor and comedian Danny John-Jules, who got seven correct results, again with no exact scores.

We're 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 of Lawro's predictions were correct (also at the bottom of the page).
