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 is British triathlete Jonny Brownlee, who hopes to succeed his older brother Alistair as world champion in the World Triathlon Grand Final in Auckland on Saturday.

Brownlee is a lifelong Leeds United fan, which is probably the main reason he is tipping Stoke to beat Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday.

He also predicts a draw for leaders Chelsea against in-form Tottenham and thinks West Brom will hold Manchester City.

You can see all of Brownlee's predictions on Football Focus on BBC One at 12:15 BST on Saturday.

And you can watch him in the World Triathlon Grand Final live on the Red Button at 01:00 BST on Sunday, with highlights at 14:05 BST on BBC Two.

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

Lawro took on British cycling supremo Dave Brailsford in the last round of games before the international break.

Lawro got five results right, including one perfect score, but his score of seven was only enough to draw with Brailsford (also five correct results including one perfect score) who is left joint fourth in the guest scoreboard.

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).
