BBC football pundit Mark Lawrenson has predicted that Tottenham Hotspur will lose to Everton on Saturday evening.
It’s usually a good omen when Lawro thinks that we are going to lose a game. In reality if we do lose this game then we really are at risk of throwing away the opportunity of Champions League qualification – nothing less than all 3 points at Goodison Park will not be good enough.
Everton are in good form at the moment, but if we want to be a top four team then we have to be picking up results at the likes of Everton.
He told BBC Sport website: “Tottenham are stuttering a little bit and are having to get used to being without a few key players – Michael Dawson is the latest one to get injured.
“Everton, on the other hand, are unbeaten in eight games and we know how competitive they are against the leading teams. They will swamp the midfield and really get at Spurs.
“Spurs are going through a poor run that has killed off any lingering title hopes but I don’t think they have gone off the boil because of the talk of their manager Harry Redknapp taking the England job or even that this is them finished for the season.
“They have just hit the buffers a bit, something which happens to everyone.
