Premier League & FA Cup predictions: Lawro v Chelsea Fan TV & Full Time Devils

BBC Sport expert Mark Lawrenson

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

Lawro's opponents for this weekend's Premier League fixtures and FA Cup quarter-finals are Sophie Rose from Chelsea supporter channel CFC Fan TV and Manchester United followers Adam McKola and Stephen Howson from Full Time DEVILS.

Unsurprisingly, Sophie has a very different view from Adam and Stephen about how Monday's mouth-watering tie between Chelsea and United will turn out.

Sophie, Adam and Stephen have also got involved in BBC Sport's No Guts, No Glory campaign to share their tales of the magic of the FA Cup - and choose some recent match as their most memorable moments.

A correct result (picking a win, draw or defeat) is worth 10 points. The exact score earns 40 points.

This week's guests will need a big performance to claim top spot on the FA Cup leaderboard after Robbie from Arsenal Fan TV joined BBC Radio 1Xtra DJ A Dot at the summit with his scores from round five.

Chelsea v Man Utd

Chelsea v Man Utd (FA Cup, 19:45 GMT KO, live on BBC One from 19:30 GMT)

Manchester United's busy schedule that sees them play in Russia in the Europa League on Thursday night will obviously make a difference.

I will be fascinated to see what team United boss Jose Mourinho picks, because Chelsea are not a side you want to play when you are tired.

Chelsea will want to turn United - and Mourinho - over, just like they did when they beat them 4-0 in the Premier League October.

Top of the Premier League

There will be no room for sentiment and that is just the way Chelsea are at the moment - they get the job done. That is not going to change because their manager Antonio Conte will not let them change.

The Blues are cruising in the league, 10 points clear and they have to be favourites to win that and the FA Cup too. There is no better team than them in the Premier League at the moment.

Lawro's prediction: 2-0

FA Cup: Full Time Devils remember Jesse Lingard's FA Cup final winner

Sophie: Now for the big one. I am buzzing for this game. I am going and cannot wait.

As a Chelsea fan this fixture will always be bittersweet while Jose Mourinho is United's manager, but we did well against them earlier in the season when we beat them 4-0 in October.

It is going to be a really tense game and a tough one too. I think we will get through but it is going to be tight.

CFC Fan TV's prediction: 3-2

Adam: This could be a classic FA Cup tie.

Stephen: It is going to be very tight - I am struggling to call it but I think I am going 1-0.

Adam: I am going for the same scoreline as in Moscow in the 2008 Champions League final when we beat them in a penalty shoot-out. You having that?

Stephen: I will take whatever there is to get through this game, mate!

Full Time Devils prediction: 1-1 aet. United to win on penalties
