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.

Lethal Bizzle's Premier League predictions

His opponent for the latest round of festive Premier League fixtures is Lethal Bizzle.

Bizzle, whose real name is Maxwell Ansah, reached number one in the UK R&B charts with his single "Oi!" back in 2002.

He predicts Manchester United will extend their lead at the top of the Premier League with victory over West Brom, and thinks rivals Manchester City will lose at Norwich.

You can see all of Lethal Bizzle's predictions 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.

On Boxing Day, Lawro took on MOTD commentator Guy Mowbray and former Sunderland striker Marco Gabbiadini.

Lawro got four results right, with no perfect scores, and his score of four saw him draw with Gabbiadini (also four correct results with no perfect scores) but lose to Mowbray (four correct results including 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).
