BBC Sport expert Mark Lawrenson

BBC Sport football expert Mark Lawrenson is pitting his wits against a new guest pundit each week this season. Lawro's predictions

The latest to take centre stage is television presenter Gethin Jones.

Jones backs Manchester United to continue their 100% winning start to the Premier League season but cannot see Welsh side Swansea getting anything from their trip to Stamford Bridge.

You can see all of his predictions on Football Focus on Saturday at 1215 BST on BBC One and this website (in the UK).

Norwich v Sunderland

Norwich v Sunderland (2000 BST)

It was a great win for Norwich at Bolton last week, if a little fortuitous. Maybe we've not given them as much praise as they deserve.

Sunderland look like a different team now after that big 4-0 win against Stoke. A draw would certainly keep both teams ticking over.

Prediction: 2-2
