Mark Lawrenson's Premier League predictions

BBC Sport expert Mark Lawrenson

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

This week he takes on the fastest man in the world - Olympic and world 100m and 200m champion and world record holder Usain Bolt.

The Jamaican, who is a big Manchester United fan, trained with Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero ahead of this week's derby.

Aguero joked afterwards: "Usain was terrible at the beginning, but I realised after a while that he was just trying to wear me out.

"When he started to play properly, he showed some skills though. He is not good enough to play for City, but I think he would have a good chance of getting into the United team!"

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

Last week, Lawro got six results right, with two perfect scores. His score of 10 saw him beaten by Manic Street Preachers' bassist Nicky Wire, whose six correct results with three perfect scores gave him 12 points, and put him top of the guest leaderboard.

This season, we will 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 of Lawro's predictions were correct (also at the bottom of the page).
