Premier League predictions with Sir Matthew Pinsent

Like Lawro, Pinsent correctly predicted leaders Manchester United would beat QPR on Sunday, and that second-placed Manchester City would lose out at Arsenal. All of which mean Sir Alex Ferguson's side have opened an eight-point gap at the top of the table.

Swansea v Newcastle0-21-11-2
West Brom v Blackburn3-02-10-1

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

For last weekend's matches, Lawro got five results right, including three perfect scores, and his total of 11 points was enough to see off former England cricketer Phil Tufnell [9].
