Football Focus Predictions - Vampire Weekend

His opponents for the FA Cup final and the latest round of Premier League games are indie rock band Vampire Weekend, whose new album 'Modern Vampires of The City' is released on 14 May.

Drummer Chris Tomson is a big Tottenham fan who often wears a Spurs shirt for gigs, and the rest of the New York-based outfit were definitely influenced by him when it came to their predictions.

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

Last week, Lawro got three results right, with no perfect scores. His score of three was his worst of the season so far, and saw him suffer a narrow defeat at the hands of Radio 1 Breakfast Show host Nick Grimshaw [4], who got four correct results with no perfect scores.

For the three midweek league games, Lawro backed Manchester City to beat West Brom 2-0, Wigan to draw 1-1 with Swansea and Chelsea to see off Tottenham 2-1. From those games, he got one correct result, with no perfect scores.
