Mark Lawrenson's Premier League predictions

BBC Sport expert Mark Lawrenson

BBC Sport football expert Mark Lawrenson gives his predictions for the next round of Premier League fixtures.

His opponent this week is former undefeated super-middleweight boxing champion, Joe Calzaghe.

Joe Calzaghe

The Welsh Dragon won all 46 of his professional fights with victories over big-name rivals including Chris Eubank, Jeff Lacy, Mikkel Kessler and Bernard Hopkins, before retiring from the sport in 2008.

A year earlier Calzaghe took home the 2007 BBC Sports Personality of the Year award, ahead of Lewis Hamilton and fellow boxer Ricky Hatton.

Calzaghe now runs his own boxing promotion company, Calzaghe Promotions, alongside his father and one-time trainer Enzo.

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

For the Premier League games on Tuesday and Wednesday, Lawro took on 2001 wildcard Wimbledon winner turned West Brom fan Goran Ivanisevic

Lawro got seven results right, with one perfect score, and his score of nine saw him ace Ivanisevic (five correct results, with one perfect score) by two points.
