BBC football pundit Mark Lawrenson has predicted that Tottenham Hotspur will draw with Chelsea this weekend.
Last time out, Lawro predicted that we would beat Cardiff City 2-0, when in fact we won 1-0 courtesy of a late Paulinho winner.
He told BBC Sport Online: “Tottenham are going very well and they have only conceded one goal in their first five league games. If they can beat Chelsea, this is a real yardstick for Spurs’ season.
“Spurs already look stronger than last year – defensively they are very good and have lots of options coming forward.
“This is a Chelsea side that is in a little bit of transition – their manager Jose Mourinho is trying to make his point to one or two of the players about what he wants from them.
“But the Blues have a good record against Spurs and I don’t see them losing this one.
“Mourinho has an over-abundance of attacking midfield players but I think his bigger problem is that he needs at least one of Fernando Torres, Demba Ba and Sammy Eto’o to emerge as his first-choice striker.
“At the moment, none of them are looking like the front man he needs and the loan of Romelu Lukaku to Everton looks a strange decision.
“Lawro’s prediction: 1-1.”
