Lawro's Premier League predictions v darts star Michael van Gerwen

BBC Sport expert Mark Lawrenson

BBC Sport's football expert Mark Lawrenson will be making a prediction for all 380 Premier League games this season against a variety of different guests.

Lawro's opponent for this week's Premier League fixtures is world number one darts player Michael van Gerwen

Van Gerwen is one of eight players competing in the Champions League of Darts, a new PDC tournament to be shown live on the BBC on 24 and 25 September.

Van Gerwen was PDC world champion in 2014

The Dutchman is a PSV Eindhoven fan, whose hero as a boy was Ruud van Nistelrooy.

"Ruud was probably my favourite player, but I was a big fan of Mark van Bommel too," Van Gerwen told BBC Sport.

"PSV are doing all right at the moment - we took four points out of six against Manchester United in the Champions League group stage last season - but overall right now Dutch football is not very strong."

You can make your own predictions now, compare them with those of Lawro and other fans, and try to take your team to the top of the leaderboard by playing the new BBC Sport Predictor game.
