Lawro's Premier League predictions v comedian & actor Elis James

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 guests.

Lawro's opponent for this week's Premier League fixtures is comedian and actor Elis James.

James, who co-stars in the BBC Three sitcom Josh, is looking to improve on his showing when he took on Lawro last season and only scored 10 points - leaving him joint-bottom of the guest leaderboard.

He is a Swansea City fan and says: "This season so far has not been great for the Swans but it is only the end of September so we live in hope.

"I think we have got enough to stay up, but I will let you know in a couple of months."
