Lawro's final day Premier League predictions v X-Men star Ben Hardy

BBC Sport expert Mark Lawrenson

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

Lawro's opponent for the final round of Premier League fixtures was actor Ben Hardy, star of the new X-Men film.

Lawro picked six correct results, including two perfect scores from nine Premier League matches, to give him a total of 120 points.

Hardy also got six results correct, but with no perfect scores, giving him 60 points.

Ben needed to score more than 160 points to knock stand-up comedian Nathan Caton off the top of the guest leaderboard.

Lawro's final league table - based on his predictions - can be seen at the bottom of the page.

X-Men star Ben Hardy
Hardy plays Archangel in X-Men: Apocalypse. He has supported Arsenal since he was 10 and says his highlight was the unbeaten 'Invincibles' season of 2003-04. "It was just an amazing year"

Hardy, 25, used to play Peter Beale in BBC soap EastEnders but supports a north London team - Arsenal - and it is fair to say he has not enjoyed watching the Gunners fall away in the title race again this season.

"I am sick of it, it feels like Groundhog Day," he told BBC Sport.

"I have got a lot of respect for Arsene Wenger but, reluctantly, I am in the 'Wenger Out' campaign.

"I think it is a case of 'thanks for the memories, but let's move on'."

A correct result (picking a win, draw or defeat) is worth 10 points. The exact score earns 40 points.

Last weekend, Lawro got three correct results, including two perfect scores from 10 Premier League matches, to give him a total of 90 points.

He lost out to two-time world darts champion Adrian 'Jackpot' Lewis, who got four results correct, with two perfect scores.

Lawro also picked up 60 points from his predictions for the four midweek Premier League games (see 19:30 BST entry of Tuesday's live text commentary).His opponent for those matches, world champion boxer Anthony Joshua, did not make any predictions for these games, which were postponed from FA Cup semi-final weekend, but has been awarded 20 points based on his existing points-per-match average, which was 30 points from six matches (five points per match).
