BBC football ‘pundit’ Mark Lawrenson has predicted that Tottenham Hotspur will beat West Ham United on Sunday.
Both sides meet at White Hart Lane in the early kick-off which is the Hammers biggest game of the season against what they class as their rivals, whereas we don’t even give them a second look.
Lawro seems to think we are going to win this one, which is always concerning as he’s typically wrong.
He told BBC Sport online: “West Ham manager Sam Allardyce got a lot of stick from his side’s travelling fans after their 4-0 defeat at West Brom in the FA Cup.
” The Hammers have also only won two of their last 10 league games and that drop in form has meant people are making a lot of the fact that Allardyce’s contract ends in the summer, and nothing is being done about giving him a new one.
“West Ham won twice at White Hart Lane last season in the Premier League and Capital One Cup but I don’t see them making it three in a row on Sunday.
“Tottenham pinched the points with an injury-time winner at Upton Park when these two sides met on the first day of the season.
“Spurs are a completely different side now, though, and I think they will show it with a much more convincing performance.
“Lawro’s prediction: 2-0.”
