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 each week this season.

His opponent for the latest round of Premier League fixtures was rugby league star Kevin Sinfield of Leeds Rhinos who was on the losing side in Saturday's Challenge Cup final against Warrington Wolves.

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

Last weekend, Lawro took on Olympic gold-medal winning boxer Luke Campbell.

Lawro got five results right, including one perfect score, but his score of seven meant he was edged out by Campbell (six correct results, including two perfect scores), who takes his place at the top of the fledgling guest scoreboard with 10 (at the bottom of the page).

This season, we will also be keeping a record of the total scores for Lawro and his guests (below), and showing a table of how the Premier League would look if Lawro's predictions came off (also at the bottom of the page).
