Lawro's Premier League predictions

BBC Sport expert Mark Lawrenson

This season, BBC Sport football expert Mark Lawrenson will pit his wits against a new guest each week.

It is the turn of England rugby union winger Chris Ashton to predict the results for the next round of Premier League matches.

Ashton has been in prolific form during the Six Nations with a record-equalling six tries to date - and he reckons Manchester United are set for a similarly high-scoring afternoon against Bolton on Saturday.

His predictions for both that match and Liverpool's trip to Sunderland on Sunday perhaps indicate where his loyalties lie, but the 23-year-old does tip Manchester City to get a point at Chelsea.

This week's predictions Score Lawro Chris Ashton
Tottenham v West Ham 0-0 2-1 1-0
Aston Villa v Wolves 0-1 2-0 1-1
Blackburn v Blackpool 2-2 2-1 2-2
Man Utd v Bolton 1-0 2-0 4-0
Stoke v Newcastle 4-0 2-1 3-2
West Brom v Arsenal 2-2 1-1 1-2
Wigan v Birmingham 2-1 0-0 2-0
Everton v Fulham 2-1 2-1 3-1
Sunderland v Liverpool 0-2 2-1 5-0
Chelsea v Man City 2-0 1-1 3-3

A correct result is worth ONE point, a correct score earns THREE points.

Last week, Lawro got two results correct from the four FA Cup quarter-finals, with one perfect score, but his four points will not count towards his Premier League average.
