Lawro's Premier League predictions v Fighting Talk host Colin Murray

BBC Sport expert Mark Lawrenson

BBC Sport's football expert Mark Lawrenson will be making a prediction for all 380 Premier League games this season against a variety of guests.

Lawro's opponent for this week's fixtures is Colin Murray, host of BBC Radio 5 live's Fighting Talk.

Murray has graced the Anfield turf as well as the stands and says "I cannot pick Liverpool to lose. I would never do it."

Murray is a Liverpool fan and says his allegiance does not always help when it comes to predictions.

He told BBC Sport: "My Achilles' heel when I take part in prediction leagues is that I never back Liverpool to do worse than draw. It does not matter where they are in reality.

"It is a bad thing because you should be able to take out the emotion when you are predicting results, but I am not able to.

"In one prediction league I do, they show you what the table would look like if all your predictions came true and every season Liverpool win the league by 20 clear points, which is rubbish."

Fighting Talk is broadcast every Saturday morning on BBC Radio 5 live at 11:00 GMT and features a panel of experts trying to win points for their punditry on the week's sports stories.

You can make your Premier League predictions now, compare them with those of Lawro and other fans, and try to take your team to the top of the leaderboard by playing the BBC Sport Predictor game.
