Lawro's predictions

BBC Sport expert Mark Lawrenson

BBC Sport football expert Mark Lawrenson is pitting his wits against a different guest pundit each week this season.

His latest opponent is Sri Lanka's cricketing superstar Muttiah Muralitharan, who retired from the international game earlier this year but remains the leading wicket-taker in both Tests and One Day Internationals.

Muralitharan fancies Manchester United to dismiss local rivals Manchester City for a duck, Chelsea to dispatch QPR to the boundary and Swansea to bowl a nasty googly at Wolves.

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

A correct result is worth ONE point while a correct score earns THREE points.

Last week, Lawro got FIVE results right, including ONE perfect score, but his seven points were beaten by jockey Frankie Dettori, who scored 10.
