BBC football ‘pundit’ Mark Lawrenson has tipped Burnley to beat Tottenham Hotspur tomorrow.
Lawro also took the time to try and belittle the success which Harry Kane is currently enjoying and has questioned if he can really live up to the hype.
He told BBC Sport Online: “I cannot believe there has been such a massive fuss over Tottenham striker Harry Kane.
“I have got a bit of a bee in my bonnet about this – he has had an outstanding season but people are making him out to be the saviour of English football. I heard on the radio the other day that he was apparently worth £100m. Where has everyone’s brains gone?
“It will be much, much more difficult for Kane next season. Let’s see next May if he is still going to be a world beater – at the moment, it is far too early to get so carried away.
“Next season will be a massive test for him because he will be a marked man. Games and players are analysed in huge detail these days and people at other clubs will sit down and work out everything about him – where he runs from, how he runs and when he runs, and how he gets on the ball.
“From the way people have been eulogising about him, you would think he is going to be the next Lionel Messi. It’s frightening.
“Next up for Kane is Turf Moor, and it will be a bit different to his last game, which was in Italy for England.
“Tottenham are a good side but this is a tough game for them.
“I fancy the Clarets to win and the reason I say that is because I think they will be ‘up and at ’em’.
“It will be a real east Lancashire welcome. A case of ‘have some of this – lots of shoe’.
“Lawro’s prediction: 2-1.”
