Mark Lawrenson's Premier League 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 comedian Jason Manford who came to fame with his stand-up routines and was also a presenter of The One Show.

As a big fan of Manchester City, he has predicted his team will beat Arsenal on Sunday and thinks QPR will manage to get a point at home to Manchester United.

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