Tinchy Stryder's Premier League predictions

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

His opponent for this weekend's Premier League ties is rapper Tinchy Stryder, a huge Manchester United fan who performed at the 2011 Champions League final at Wembley.

Stryder tipped United to see off Tottenham at White Hart Lane but they will not be at 'number 1' in the Premier League this weekend because, as he predicted, Manchester City got the better of Bolton.

Tottenham v Man Utd1-31-21-3
West Brom v Chelsea1-01-12-2
Wigan v Swansea0-22-10-2

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

In the last round of Premier League games, Lawro got five results right, with no perfect scores. He was beaten by actor Stephen Graham [7].

Both of them backed Liverpool to beat Cardiff in the Carling Cup final but that game will not count towards their weekly score.
