BBC football pundit Mark Lawrenson has predicted that Tottenham will draw against Manchester United tomorrow.

Last time out Lawro incorrectly predicted that Spurs would draw against Leicester City, when in fact we won the March.

He told BBC Sport online: “It is three wins in a row now for Tottenham after their win over Leicester on Boxing Day.

“Christian Eriksen got Spurs’ winner in the 71st-minute against the Foxes, which was early for him.

“Joking aside, they are clearly on a good run of form and will cause Manchester United some problems.

“I was at Old Trafford for United’s win over Newcastle and I thought their performance in that game summed up the first half of their season so far.

“When they attacked, United were very good. Every time they came forward they looked capable of scoring.

“But, defensively, they were quite ordinary and vulnerable at times.
United are going to win an awful lot of games with the attacking players they have got, including their wing-backs.

“On the other hand, if they have to defend for long periods in a game then they are going to find that difficult.

“I’m going for a draw here, mainly because I don’t think Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino will commit too many men forward – that is not is his way. This more likely to be a tight, tactical battle.

“Lawro’s prediction: 1-1.”
