Premier League predictions: Lawro v actor and comedian Stephen Fry

Lawro's predictions

Arsenal host Tottenham in the big Premier League showdown of the weekend, but who will come out on top?

BBC Sport's predictions expert Mark Lawrenson has the first north London derby of the season to end in a draw. Elsewhere, Premier League leaders Liverpool head to Burnley while reigning champions Manchester City host Brighton.

Lawro is making predictions for all 380 top-flight matches this season, against a variety of guests.

His guest this week is Stephen Fry. The actor and comedian is starring in the theatre production Mythos: A Trilogy - Gods. Heroes. Men. In the trilogy of plays, Fry takes to the stage in the company of the Greek gods, heroes and men, whose gripping tales still echo today.

Away from the stage, the 62-year-old is a Norwich City fan.

Norwich fan Stephen Fry backs Spurs for north London derby

"My favourite Norwich moment will be the favourite moment of most people of a certain age and that is the Jeremy Goss goal at Bayern Munich. That was extraordinary," said Fry.

"We had a really good side at that time and it felt like we were getting bigger and bigger and then the Premier League arrived and at one point we were at the top of it. It was amazing. Maybe it will happen again.

"This season is very exciting because we have one of the youngest and most exciting teams for a very long time. We also have the greatest bargain currently playing in the Premier League in Teemu Pukki. He is incredible. You get players who are totally ordinary with other clubs and Pukki was but we got him on a free and he has fitted into Daniel Farke's system incredibly."
