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.

The Vaccines' Premier League predictions

His opponent for the latest round of Premier League fixtures was The Vaccines singer Justin Young.

Young is a Manchester United fan despite coming from a family of Southampton supporters, and his Red Devils hero as a boy was David Beckham.

He tipped United and Saints to enjoy big wins at the weekend, and also expected Premier League leaders Manchester City to edge out Chelsea in Rafael Benitez's first game in charge of the Blues.

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

Last weekend, Lawro took on British tennis star Andy Murray.

Lawro got four results right, including one perfect score, and his score of six saw him draw with Murray (also four correct results, with one perfect score).

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 all Lawro's predictions came off (also at the bottom of the page).
