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 maverick 1970s striker Rodney Marsh. The former QPR, Manchester City and Fulham star is predicting mixed fortunes for his former clubs.

Marsh thinks City will return to winning ways against Liverpool, tips QPR to get a point against Norwich, but thinks Fulham will be beaten at home by Arsenal.

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

For the games on New Year's weekend, Lawro got FIVE results right, including two perfect scores, meaning his nine points beat fellow pundit Martin Keown, who scored eight points.
