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.

Football impersonators predict results

His opponents for the latest round of Premier League fixtures are impersonators Darren Farley and Paul Reid.

David Beckham, Jose Mourinho, Rafael Benitez and Lawro himself are among the personalities to feature as Farley and Reid take a look at the weekend's games.

You can see all of their predictions - and impersonations - on Football Focus at 12:15 GMT on Saturday on BBC One and this website (in the UK).

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

Last week, Lawro took on former Manchester City and Sunderland manager Peter Reid.

Lawro got five results right, with one perfect score, and his score of seven saw him edge out Reid (six correct results, with no perfect scores).

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).
