Mark Lawrenson's Premier League predictions

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

Russell Brand's Premier League predictions

His opponent is actor and comedian Russell Brand.

Brand, 37, who lives and works in America, is a life-long West Ham supporter, and told us: "My Dad supported West Ham and his Dad supported West Ham. Everyone at my school supported West Ham. It wasn't really an optional thing."

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

Last week, Lawro took on rappers Devlin and Wretch 32.

Lawro got seven results right , including two perfect scores , and his score of 11 saw him beat Devlin's tally of 10 (four correct results including three perfect scores) and Wretch 32's score of eight (six results including one score).

Neither Lawro or BBC football pundit Peter Reid guessed the score of Wednesday's rearranged game between Chelsea and Southampton correctly.

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 had come off (also at the bottom of the page).
