Mark Lawrenson's Premier League predictions

BBC Sport expert Mark Lawrenson

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

This week's opponent is sure to go the distance, as world 5,000m champion Mo Farah puts his knowledge to the test.

Farah is an Arsenal fan and fancies himself as a decent right-back, so it comes as no surprise that he has backed the Gunners to win handsomely at home.

Amongst Mo's other shouts are a fine away win for QPR and yet more success for Manchester City at Anfield

Liverpool v Man City1-11-10-2

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

Last week, Lawro got FIVE results right, with two perfect scores, and scored nine points, which was enough to beat astrologer and former Strictly Come Dancing contestant Russell Grant, who scored eight points, including FOUR correct results and two perfect scores.
