Mark Lawrenson's predictions

Premier predictions: Alliss v Lawro

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

His opponent for the FA Cup semi-finals and the latest round of Premier League games is BBC golf commentator Peter Alliss.

Alliss is known as 'the voice of golf' and is currently heading BBC coverage of The Masters at Augusta.

But he is also a keen football fan and follows the fortunes of various clubs, including Bournemouth, Aldershot, Celtic, Rangers, Manchester City, Arsenal, Portsmouth, Aberdeen and Blackpool.

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

Last week, Lawro got five results right, including two perfect scores and his score of nine saw him beat pop star and Manchester United fan Olly Murs [3], who got three correct results but 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 had come off (also at the bottom of the page).
