BBC football pundit Mark Lawrenson has predicted that Tottenham Hotspur will beat Sunderland on Monday.

Lawro has claimed that these are uncertain times at the Lane and that we have wasted the £100m we spent in the summer.

He told BBC Sport Online: ” Tottenham’s poor performance in their 4-0 defeat by Liverpool last weekend was very strange but, then again, these are uncertain times at White Hart Lane.

“Last August, they lost their best player in Gareth Bale and bought in £100m of players. Are they any better? No. Most definitely not.

“Are they actually in a position where they are not quite sure who their best team is? Yes.

“Will there be a new manager in charge in June, July or August? Quite possibly.

“Do they then gamble that some of the new arrivals who have struggled will kick on next season? We don’t know.

“There are a lot of doubts over Spurs right now, but they should still be too strong for a Sunderland side who have lost their way in recent weeks and are in a lot of trouble after taking just one point from their last six games.

“Sunderland need goals but in their last game, a 2-1 home defeat by West Ham, their strike-force of Connor Wickham and Fabio Borini felt more like a Championship forward line than a Premier League one.

“Lawro’s prediction: 2-0.”
