Lawro predicts Spurs to beat Aston Villa


Scott Parker - Tottenham Hotspur News

BBC football pundit Mark Lawrenson has predicted that Tottenham Hotspur will beat Aston Villa on Monday night.

He told BBC Sport Online: “Harry Redknapp will probably be back in the dugout for Spurs, subject to doctors approval, and Spurs will want a home win to keep the pressure on the rest of the top sides.

“Ledley King will have had a nice two-week break and he has shown again this season just what a top player he is.

“Tottenham are looking a top-four team at the moment but it is going to be tougher than ever to get into the Champions League this season and it will go to the wire.

“Villa have made a bit of a cautious start but in Gabriel Agbonlahor and Darren Bent they have good attacking options and they will be fine. Their fans will have to accept that they are looking at a good run in the cups and a top seven or eight finish because it’s just not possible to finish any higher at the moment.

“Prediction: 2-0.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Spurs need to rest both Scotty & VDV for this one. Sandro & JD need to play.This is what rotation is all about without compromising the match & not upsetting players, which could have a detrimental effect on us. We cannot risk not giving Sandro playing time.

  2. The warning signs where there for all too see if we keep playing 451 or 4411 has some of our fans call it we will give Harry and some of our older fans heart attacks. We need to fit Van into our team not the other way round. This is because it puts our defence in too much trouble especially in the second half surge in Tempo, its like ground hog day 2-0 up looking comfortable then they score in the 50 mins and we are hanging on till we get another goal or full time. This is he only way i would play Van Hamstring Friedel (Gomes) Walker Kaboul King Bale Lennon Van Parker Modric Ady Defoe i no some fans rate Benny and i like him also but if Defoe can be dropped scoring goals then Benny can have a few games off.

  3. i have to agree with roy singh. we have an absolute bumper in sandro and not giving him playing time could result in us losing him. parker has been outstanding so far and i know that he will eventually get a 5th booking a miss a match then sandro can step in but this one start every 10 games wont help us keep him. he will be a star at another club in the future. maybe play 2 holding midfielders and three attackers like sandro and parker and in front of them play modric bale and lennon/vdv.

  4. I will give you advance warning Davspurs will be holding court at the 2011 wimpy literary award for blog comments.It is an award presented to an blog responder who has written a particularly lauded piece or body of work.
    Many wimpy bar awards are also dedicated to a certain genre of fiction or non-fiction writing (such as science fiction or politics). There are also awards dedicated to works in individual languages, The wimpy literary awards come with a corresponding award ceremony.Lets go because this is a moment of historical reverberance in the world of the written word. If you don't believe me just look at the gems of spelling, syntax and grammar above as in-has some of our fans-So its Southgate tube next Thursday at 8. Davspurs will be presenting his new novella
    We will lose 2 0 v Villa

  5. To be fair Davspurs grammer and spelling has improved no end. Keep going Davspurs you will get there in the end. I glad there were no comments about drug use, a step in the right direction.

    Come on you Spurs!

    Come on you Davspurs!
