Well, well, well.  BBC football ‘pundit’ Mark Lawrenson is at it again by claiming that Tottenham Hotspur will lose to Burnley.

Tottenham travel to Turf Moor to take on the Clarets on Monday night in the third round of the FA Cup.  After incorrectly predicting that we wouldn’t beat Leicester or Chelsea, he has once again predicted defeat for Pochettino’s men.

He told BBC Sport online: “Burnley have been great in their last three games but they have only two points to show for it.

“Harry Kane has been brilliant for Tottenham of late, and their away form has been very strong.

“But I just wonder if Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino will make a few changes. The FA Cup was not one of his priorities when he was in charge of Southampton last season.”

“Lawro’s prediction: 2-.1″

Leave your own prediction and your thoughts on Lawro’s, below.

  1. Wouldn't be too bothered if he was right, we really need to concentrate on the league cup and league, and give the fringe players a chance in the FA and Europa Cup games and if they can do the business all well and good, but ,really, how on earth does that boring idiot get a job as a pundit , I can only assume somebody high up in the bbc is a Liverpool fan , ex pool players are all over the media, put him in a room with Oeen, let's see who can stay awake the longest, I expect when Gerard does retire we will also have his exciting persona to contend with COYS

  2. He predicted it on the basis of squad rotation. Depending on that he may be correct. I think the most unfortunate result is the more likely if the squad is rotated, and that is predicted by the other two (Beasant and Aldridge): a draw and a reply at WHL. The extra game is something that really would not be welcome. BTW, I am generally happy if Merson predicts a Spurs loss – he is usually wrong :>)

  3. Burnley might rotate too and I wonder if top 4, league cup, Europa and fa cup is too much. Happy for us to rotate and give soldado, capoue,,ade, kaboul etc a run

  4. Lawrenson is making these predictions to deflect the fact that his team Liverpool are so poor,he has predicted spurs would lose in the last 3 games ,but they have'nt, even if Spurs rotate their squad they are still capable of winning. Liverpool on the other hand are very poor and you can see why Gerrard announced his decision to leave after the game with Leicester, because they are going nowhere and Rodgers needs to go.

  6. It will not be surprising were Lawro's forecast to happen. Burnley are a Premiership club, playing at home and this is an FA Cup match.

  7. How Lawro is still a pundit, I will never know. He constantly tries to crack a joke, which are never funny and just embarrasses himself. Get rid of the old boring bastard. COYS
