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

Football Focus: Carl Froch's Premier League predictions

His opponent for the latest round of Premier League fixtures is Nottingham boxer Carl Froch.

The IBF super-middleweight champion is a big Nottingham Forest fan and went to his first game at the City Ground as an eight-year-old.

Froch is going for a Manchester City win in Sunday's top-of-the-table Manchester derby, and reckons West Ham will defeat Liverpool.

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

Last week, Lawro took on undefeated former super-middleweight boxing champion Joe Calzaghe.

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