Premier League predictions: Lawro v British snowboarder Katie Ormerod
The first Premier League winter break is upon us, with 10 games staggered over the next two weeks.
There are only four matches this weekend, but they could prove pivotal in the race to avoid relegation, with four of the bottom six involved before they head to the beach, or a warm-weather training camp.
BBC football expert Mark Lawrenson said: "For all the struggling teams, winning this weekend and heading off on holiday on the back of a positive result would make a massive difference.
"It would be a big boost of confidence for the fans, players and the manager - everyone at the club."
Lawro is making predictions for all 380 top-flight matches this season, against a variety of guests.
This week he is up against British snowboarder Katie Ormerod.
Katie's younger brother Harvey is an apprentice at League Two side Bradford City.
"I've always had an interest in football because of Harvey," she told BBC Sport. "I've been following his journey and learning little things through what he does so, yeah, it's really cool.
"If I played myself, I'd probably play in the middle. Just because I only ever played one team sport at school, which was netball, and I was always a centre - so I was always running around doing different bits, and I'd probably end up doing something similar.
"From the British team, Billy Morgan is probably the snowboarder who would be best at football. He is such an amazing all-round athlete.
"A lot of footballers would do well at snowboarding too, though. It would be cool to see some of them have a go, and I definitely see [Liverpool's] Trent Alexander-Arnold being pretty good."
