Premier League predictions: Lawro v England cricketers Moeen Ali & James Anderson

BBC Sport expert Mark Lawrenson

Manchester United suffered their first defeat of the season last weekend - but could they lose more ground on Premier League leaders Manchester City when they face in-form Tottenham on Saturday?

BBC Sport football expert Mark Lawrenson says: "United flunked at Huddersfield and, as bad as Liverpool were at Wembley, Tottenham played very well to beat them 4-1.

"But I don't see United losing again. They rolled over in the first half against the Terriers but there is no way Jose Mourinho is going to let Spurs beat his side at Old Trafford."

Lawro is going for a 1-1 draw - do you agree? You can make your own predictions now, take on Lawro and other fans, create your own league and try to make it to the top of the table by playing the new-look BBC Sport Predictor game.

Predictor Week 9 table showing Mark Lawrenson in 3,152nd place

Lawro scored 70 points in week nine, which saw him slip to 3,152nd place out of more than 240,000 users.

He will be making a prediction for all 380 top-flight games this season, against a variety of guests.

Lawro, who beat Joe Root last week, takes on two of his England cricket team-mates for this weekend's fixtures - all-rounder Moeen Ali and bowler James Anderson.

Burnley fan Anderson predicts a 1-0 win for his side at home to Newcastle on Monday and is hopeful the club can keep hold of manager Sean Dyche, who has been linked with the Everton job.

"What Sean Dyche has done over the last four or five years has been outstanding," he said. "We're just keeping our fingers crossed we can keep hold of him."

Liverpool fan Moeen has backed his side to record a 3-1 win over Huddersfield at Anfield.
