BBC Sport expert Mark Lawrenson

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

Football Focus: Camp Bastion's Premier League predictions

This week he takes on UK Prime Minister David Cameron.

He gave his predictions during a Christmas visit to see the British troops in Afghanistan.

The Football Focus crew also asked some of the army troops based at Camp Bastion for their predictions for the final round of Premier League games before Christmas.
