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.

Stephen Graham goes head-to-head with Lawro this week

His opponent for this weekend's Premier League ties was actor Stephen Graham, who portrayed former Leeds captain Billy Bremner in the film The Damned United, and also appeared in This is England and Boardwalk Empire.

Graham, a lifelong Liverpool fan who worships Steven Gerrard, correctly tipped the Reds to end their six-year wait for a trophy by beating Cardiff City in Sunday's Carling Cup final.

As far as the Premier League goes, he did not count on an Arsenal victory in the north London derby against Tottenham but he did rightly predict wins for Manchester City and their local rivals United.

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

On FA Cup fifth round weekend, Lawro called the right result in three of the eight ties, with one perfect score. His five points gave him a narrow win over legendary Wimbledon goalkeeper Dave Beasant, hero of the 1988 FA Cup final, who scored three.

In the last round of Premier League fixtures, Lawro got four results right, with one perfect score, and his six points gave him a phenomenal win over Muppets duo Kermit and Miss Piggy who, perhaps unsurprisingly (seeing as they only made three predictions), ended up with zero.
