Lawro predicts Spurs to beat Swansea


Gareth Bale - Tottenham Hotspur News

BBC football pundit Mark Lawrenson has predicted that Tottenham Hotspur will beat Swansea at White Hart Lane on Sunday.

Spurs didn’t have it all their own way at the Liberty Stadium in the return fixture and had to settle for a draw after being outplayed by the Welsh side for the majority of the match.  It should be a different affair at the Lane, however the Swans are coming off the back of a 2-0 defeat to Everton.

He told BBC Sport Online: “Tottenham have been on a bad run but I think they have had their blip and they will kick on now.

“They could easily have got three points against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last week and they also dealt with Bolton in the FA Cup to book a semi-final trip to Wembley. Now I can see them getting three points against Swansea to stay in touch with Arsenal in the race for third.

“I feel a bit sorry for the Swans because they were so, so good against Fulham and Manchester City but then Everton picked them off last weekend and I suspect Tottenham will do the same at White Hart Lane.

“Prediction: 2-0.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. This should be a must victory playing at home without any doubt.Having seeing them play their last few games, they appear to be disinterested team that are showing no urgency to winning ways. Disapointed fan

  2. 2012/13:

    – GK = KRUL, Friedel, Cudicini

    – RB = Walker, NAUGHTON

    – CB = King, Dawson, Kaboul, Gallas, Nelsen, CAULKER

    – LB = Assou-Ekotto, VERTONGHEN (CB)

    – RM = Lennon, HAZARD or HOILLET

    – CM = Modric, Sandro, Parker, Huddlestone, Livermore

    – LM = Bale, Kranjcar or Pienaar

    – ST = Adebayor or CAVANI or HUNTELAAR or BA or LLORENTE, Van der Vaart, Defoe, LEANDRO

    • GK = Krul (Great choice)

      CB = No Gallas (Too old and injured all the time) King? Vertonghen (Hell Yes)

      LB = Baines, Assou-Ekotto

      RM = Hoillet (proven prem player and can play LM, ST and in the Van Der Vaart Role)

      LM = Kranjcar

      ST = No Adebayor (He has lost the ability to score) Daniel Sturridge (Great Player in the making) Ba (Proven prem Player and cheap) Defoe and Van der Vaart.

      Spurs should not go for the so called world class ST. They cost too much and look at Torres. He was better than all those ST's and now he is a huge flop. Play it safe and buy proven Prem player's.

    • not too bad
      GK – Krul or vorm or akinfeev
      Cb – dont think we should resign nelsen, time to move the king into a coaching role. daws, kab, gallas, caulker, vertonghen should be enough
      rb – is naughton quite good enough? hope so!
      lb – agree
      rm – agree
      cm – agree
      lm – if bale will stay there and not wander everywhere! kranjcar and pienaar both not good enough – is it time to give rose / townsend a decent try?
      st – afraid defoe will leave, cavani or lavezzi or ba or remy or carroll or torres, vdv, leandro, (prob end up keeping saha!)

  3. What a pointless article, no reasoning why we would win aside from us being a top four… From what I have seen and how they were at home – underestimate Swansea at our peril.

  4. we could lose to anyone we're sooooooooooooooooo f'ing crap. After the 5-2 gainst the scum Ive given up making predictions.
