Mark Lawrenson's Premier League predictions

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

James Arthur

X Factor star predicts Magpies massacre

His opponent for the latest round of Premier League fixtures is X Factor finalist James Arthur.

Arthur is a Middlesbrough fan, which is probably one of the reasons why he is tipping his side's north east rivals Newcastle and Sunderland to be beaten - heavily in the Magpies' case.

He also backs the top three of Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City to win their respective games and keep things tight in the title race.

You can see all of Arthur's predictions on Football Focus at 12:15 GMT on BBC One on Saturday.

A correct result is worth ONE point, while a correct score earns THREE points.

Last weekend, Lawro took on Britain's Olympic gold medal-winning cyclists Joanna Rowsell and Dani King.

Lawro got five results right, including two perfect scores, and his score of nine gave him a convincing victory over Rowsell (three correct results, one perfect score) and King (two right results but with no exact scores).

This season, we will also be keeping a record of the total scores for Lawro and his guests (below), and showing a table of how the Premier League would look if all Lawro's predictions came off (also at the bottom of the page).
