Lawro's Premier League predictions: Midweek matches

BBC Sport expert Mark Lawrenson

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

Lawro's opponents for this week's five rearranged Premier League fixtures are world champion boxer Carl Frampton and Nobby Butcher, aka comedian Sacha Baron Cohen.

The pair made predictions for Premier League games that were postponed because of FA Cup ties or the Capital One Cup final.

They can boost their scores and standings on the guest leaderboard, with Frampton needing 40 points from his three matches to move top of the table.
