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 each week this season.

His opponent for the latest round of Premier League fixtures was former England rugby union captain Lawrence Dallaglio.

Chelsea fan Dallaglio will have been disappointed after tipping his team to beat Newcastle only to see the Blues suffer a 3-2 defeat in a thrilling encounter at St James' Park on Saturday.
