Lawro's Premier League predictions v comedian Nathan Caton

Caton told BBC Sport: "The mighty Bees are my local club in west London and they are my team.

"The best moment I have had supporting them was either getting promoted to the Championship in 2014, or beating our neighbours Fulham 4-1 at Craven Cottage last season.

"I went to that game and it was brilliant to see all our goals go in."

Match report

Newcastle v Crystal Palace

Newcastle 1-0 Crystal Palace

Lawro's prediction: 2-0

Caton's prediction: Palace will be on a high after winning their semi-final but they might be saving themselves for the final, while Newcastle are scrapping. 1-0

Match report

Stoke v Sunderland

Stoke 1-1 Sunderland

Lawro's prediction: 1-1

Caton's prediction: I have a sneaky feeling Sunderland will get something. 1-1

Match report

Watford v Aston Villa

Watford 3-2 Aston Villa

Lawro's prediction: 2-0

Caton's prediction: Villa could play a bit better now that relegation has taken the weight off their shoulders, but I'm backing Watford. 2-0

Match report

West Brom v West Ham

West Brom 0-3 West Ham

Lawro's prediction: 2-1

Caton's prediction: West Ham are still going for a European spot and I think they will have too much for the Baggies. 1-3

Man Utd v Leicester

Man Utd 1-1 Leicester

Lawro's prediction: 1-1

Caton's prediction: Oh, this is a massive game. If United play like they did in the first half of their FA Cup semi-final against Everton then I can't see them losing. With Leicester striker Jamie Vardy still suspended I am going for United to shade it. 2-1

Match report

Southampton v Man City

Southampton 4-2 Man City

Chelsea v Tottenham

Chelsea 2-2 Tottenham
