Mark Lawrenson's FA Cup 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.

His opponent for this weekend's FA Cup fifth-round ties is former Wimbledon goalkeeper Dave Beasant, hero of the Dons' victory over Liverpool in the 1988 final, when he famously saved a John Aldridge penalty.

Beasant, who has been coaching at the Glenn Hoddle Academy in Spain, thinks Brighton - the club where he ended his career - will be edged out at Anfield.

Sunderland v Arsenal2-01-12-1
Crawley v Stoke0-20-21-1
Stevenage v Tottenham0-00-20-2
Liverpool v Brighton6-12-02-1

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

In the last round of Premier League fixtures, Lawro got four results right, with one perfect score, and his six points gave him a phenomenal win over Muppets duo Kermit and Miss Piggy who, perhaps unsurprisingly (seeing as they only made three predictions), ended up with zero.
