BBC football pundit Mark Lawrenson has predicted that Tottenham Hotspur will beat Sunderland on Saturday evening.
He told BBC Sport Online: “I thought Sunderland were cruising against Stoke when they threw it away and they are in for a really tough game here. Tottenham seem to have got over their bad run now and have shown their determination by winning their last two matches, against Blackpool and Bolton, when they had to ride their luck a bit in both.
“Tottenham have defensive issues but they have players with the ability to win games right through their squad and showed it again when Niko Kranjcar came off the bench to score a belting winner against Bolton on Saturday. I’m going to go for them to get three points again here, and I think they are about to go on another really good run.
