BBC football pundit Mark Lawrenson has predicted that Tottenham Hotspur will draw with Aston Villa this afternoon.
Last time out Lawro incorrectly predicted that Spurs would beat West Ham United 2-0 at the Lane, when indeed we all know what happened that day.
He told BBC Sport Online: ” I know Tottenham went to Villa Park and won 4-0 in the Capital One Cup in September, but this will be a completely different game.
“Christian Benteke will be back up front for Aston Villa after making a faster-than-expected recovery from his injury, and that will clearly be a big boost for them.
“Villa will have a point to prove after that defeat while we must wait and see whether Spurs have been unhinged a bit by their shock home defeat by West Ham.
“That was not only their worst result of the season so far but, within a few hours, Andre Villas-Boas saw all his players disappear to play international football. He will not have had much of a chance to work with them on what went wrong.
“Lawro’s prediction: 1-1.”
