BBC football pundit Mark Lawrenson has predicted that Tottenham Hotspur will beat Birmingham City in the final Premier League game of the season on Sunday.

He told BBC Sport Online: “Should Wigan get something out of their game against Stoke, the spotlight – and pressure – falls squarely on they shoulders of Birmingham.

“And, for me, Alex McLeish’s side have a real worry.

“They look like they’ve gone in every way – physically, mentally, they look lightweight up front and they’re up against a Tottenham side that looks to have returned to form on the back of a very comfortable win at Anfield last week.

“Birmingham’s problem is that they’re not a team that finds it easy to open up and on the basis that they might even need to win at White Hart Lane, I think they’re really struggling.

“If you look at last season the Blues won so many games 1-0 – but this season, since they lost defender Scott Dann, they’ve looked so vulnerable. I also think they’ve switched right off after winning the Carling Cup and they have been in a terrible rut since. The lack of goals has been startling too.

“Simply, I can’t see them getting anything from this match – and that might put Birmingham bang in trouble.

“As for Tottenham, a win puts them in the Europa League which seals fifth place – and despite a late-season slump, they’ve had a good season all things considered.

“Where they go from here is the question…

“Prediction: 2-0.”

  1. Flipping Mark Lawrenson if he says it’s so then go the other way this guy can really chat some pooh he predicted last week for pool to do us easily and every other game he predicts we win we lose so on that basis what do you think is gonna happen? Nah seriously we SHOULD be winning this game but I’m a bit nervous about it because everytime we need to win a game or should win a game we somehow conspire to gift the game to the opposition and do them a favour as if we are some non profit making charity. Look back on our season and see how many times we have had the opportunity to take points and challenge for second and third spot and just folded like a blind man playing poker? Anyway it’s the final game so let’s get behind the lads and finish with a flourish and finish above the bindippers for the third year running. COYS Lillywhitetilidie

  2. I hope your right lorrow but you also said we would beat blackpool and loose to liverpool and got both wrong!!! I dont want to see the blues go down or blackpool so hopefully wigan will go down instead.

  3. If Birmingham do go down expect us to get Foster…..I personally would have him over Gomes, I believe he has faced the most shots this season out of all keepers in the league Gomes gets 1 shot a game and lets it in.

    Scott Dann will go to Liverpool as well
