Lawro's Premier League predictions v BBC NFL analyst Osi Umenyiora

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 weekend's Premier League fixtures is two-time Super Bowl winner Osi Umenyiora, an analyst on the BBC's NFL Show.

Umenyiora says he does not support a Premier League team - instead he follows his favourite player, Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

"Anywhere Zlatan goes, that is who I follow," he explained. "Last year I was a fan of Paris St-Germain, but now I am a fan of United - because of Zlatan.

"He is the kind of footballer who could make the transition to play in the NFL, partly because of his attitude and also because he has the physicality to dominate games."

As well as predicting the outcome of the weekend's Premier League games, Umenyiora has picked a winner of Super Bowl LI on Sunday - he thinks the Atlanta Falcons will beat the New England Patriots 31-27 in Houston.

Super Bowl LI, with Umenyiora, Mark Chapman, Mike Carlson and Jason Bell is live on BBC One and BBC Radio 5 live from 23:20 GMT on Sunday.
