Premier League predictions: The Vaccines' Justin Young

Lawro's opponent for this weekend's Premier League fixtures is The Vaccines singer Justin Young.

Young is a Manchester United fan whose favourite player, David Beckham, influenced him in more ways than one.

"David Beckham was a great 'hair-spiration' for me as a boy, and an inspiration on and off the field too," he told BBC Sport.

"Eric Cantona and Peter Schmeichel were my other favourite players but Beckham was my number one.

"Without a doubt my favourite Beckham haircut was the Brylcreem-era curtains and I still haven't stopped trying to emulate them."

A correct result (picking a win, draw or defeat) is worth ONE point. Getting the exact score correct earns THREE points.

Last weekend, Lawro got five correct results from 10 Premier League games, with one perfect score.

His score of seven points was beaten by darts legend Phil 'The Power' Taylor, who also picked five correct results, but with two perfect scores. That gave the 16-time world champion a total of nine points.

Lawro also made a prediction for Aston Villa's rearranged game with QPR on Wednesday. He went for a 2-0 Villa win but did not pick up any extra points because the game finished 3-3.

We are keeping a record of the totals 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 (at the bottom of the page).
