Football Focus: The 'other' Joe Cole's Premier League predictions

BBC Sport's football expert Mark Lawrenson is up against Joe Cole in this week's Premier League predictions battle.

No, not the famous footballer, but his actor namesake who is currently appearing in gangster drama Peaky Blinders on BBC Two.

Appropriately enough, given that the footballer Joe Cole started his career at Upton Park, his acting namesake is a Hammers fan and is backing Sam Allardyce's side to enjoy a high-scoring win over Manchester United when they go to Old Trafford on Saturday.

Peaky Blinders Series 2 begins Thursday, October 2 at 9pm on BBC2 or catch the first series on the BBC iPlayer.
