Lawro's Premier League predictions v sprinter Dina Asher-Smith

Lawro's predictions

There are Premier League derbies on Merseyside, and in north and west London this weekend - but who will have local bragging rights on Monday morning?

BBC football expert Mark Lawrenson is going for draws at Wembley and Goodison Park but does not give managerless Fulham much hope against Chelsea at Craven Cottage.

He said: "I was not surprised to hear Claudio Ranieri had been sacked because they looked absolutely doomed.

"Ranieri, through his experience, will have tried absolutely everything - in training and tactically - but Fulham were struggling when he arrived and he has not been able to turn things round.

"Scott Parker takes charge against his old club on Sunday but what the Cottagers really need is him in their midfield, not in the dug-out as their caretaker manager.

"They will give it their all but they are still not good enough."

Lawro is making predictions for all 380 top-flight matches this season, against a variety of guests.

This week he is up against British sprinter Dina Asher-Smith, the reigning European 100m, 200m and 4x100m champion.

European champion Dina Asher-Smith takes on this week's predictions

The 23-year-old will compete at the Anniversary Games at West Ham's London Stadium in July as part of her preparations for the World Championships, which start in Qatar in September.

Asher-Smith says she did not expect to win triple European gold in Berlin in August, explaining: "I hoped I would do well but with track and field and elite sport in general you can never truly predict what is going to happen."

Anyone who has tried making Premier League predictions will no doubt agree - but how will Asher-Smith fare against Lawro as they look at this weekend's matches?
