FA Cup & Premier League predictions: Lawro v Peter Crouch’s co-host Alex Horne

Liverpool are Premier League champions, but who will win the FA Cup?

Silverware has eluded Ole Gunnar Solskjaer so far in his time as Manchester United boss – but, after his glittering playing career, could it be the first trophy he brings to Old Trafford as a manager?

United will have to get past Norwich in Saturday’s quarter-final first – you can watch it live on BBC One and the BBC Sport website from 17:30 BST.

Lawro is pitting his wits against a different guest for each round of this season’s FA Cup, and his opponent this time is Peter Crouch: Save Our Summer co-host Alex Horne.

“We had to wait to wrap it up, but it was worth it. We will get to celebrate properly together soon too.”

Horne confesses he is a “plastic” Liverpool fan, or at least in the way he chose them as his team anyway.

He explained: “I have got two brothers. My elder brother is a Man Utd fan and my little brother is an Everton fan. My dad is a Tottenham fan and my mum is a Motherwell fan.

“I grew up in the countryside in Sussex so there was no great pull to support anyone local. My dad did not stamp his ‘Spursy-ness’…
