Premier League predictions: Lawro v You Me At Six's Josh Franceschi

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

His opponent for the next round of Premier League fixtures is You Me At Six singer Josh Franceschi.

Franceschi's all-time favourite Arsenal players are Henry, Wright, Bergkamp and Adams

Franceschi, whose band are top of the UK album charts with their fourth offering, Cavalier Youth, says he has been an Arsenal fan since he was six months old, when his dad took him to his first Gunners game in a rucksack.

"You Me At Six are a bit like Arsenal, because nobody expected us to be at number one," Franceschi told BBC Sport.

He is now a season-ticket holder at the Emirates Stadium and is backing Arsene Wenger's side to end their nine-year trophy drought this season.

"I would like to think we will win something this year," he added. "We definitely can win the title - we seem to have gone along as underdogs for most of the season despite the fact we have been top for most of it.

"I think that works in our favour because there is no pressure or expectation for us to win it."

You can see all of Franceschi's predictions on Football Focus at 12:00 GMT on Saturday on BBC One and the BBC Sport website (in the UK).
