Every week Football Expert Mark Lawrenson predicts every game for the BBC from the top flight or F.A Cup. For the last two weeks I have attempted to beat him. You can see our predictions from last week at the bottom of the article. Mark Lawrenson has made his predictions this week and I have challenged him. I believe it will be an exciting season finale with lots of goals and Arsenal taking fourth place despite a predicted 3-1 win for rivals Tottenham.
The rules follow:
A correct result is worth ONE point, while a correct score earns THREE points.
Last week, Mark Lawrenson scored his best of the season with 16 points after predicting eight results right with four perfect scores. Lawro over doubled my score (7) after I got seven results right with no perfect scores. Mark Lawrenson’s average throughout the season is 7.47, so I am happy that I am close to an experts score. This week I am confident I can beat Mark Lawrenson.
