Lawro predicts Spurs defeat at Liverpool


BBC football pundit Mark Lawrenson has predicted that Liverpool will beat Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

He told BBC Sport Online: “Liverpool just don’t want the season to end and they are playing some really good football. They are fifth and two points above Tottenham already, and I don’t think Spurs boss Harry Redknapp is particularly bothered about getting into the Europa League.

“For Liverpool it is slightly different and, although it is not a massive money-spinner, if they get big crowds – which they will do – you can make a profit into the double-figures of millions.

“The way they will probably look at it at Anfield is to say let’s get into Europe, sign a few players and aim for the top four, and then play a mixed team including a few kids in the Europa League. As long as you don’t kid the punters and make out you will be playing your strongest XI when you are not going to, then I don’t see the problem with that.

“Prediction: 2-1.”


Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Woo hoo hoo. 2nd as well. :) See ya fellow Yids, going away for the weekend. Have a great one yourselves, and, COME ON YOU SPURS!

  2. Harry may indicate his interest to opt. out of the Europa competition,but most fans would want Spurs to beat Liverpool just to gain our lost pride

  3. we should play to the utmost in the europa league and add it to our cups but in reality the moment we meet villareal who take it serious we'd lose cos we're shit. the fault lies with levy not our arry.if levy aint got enough bread then he should give it to someone who has or even better turn the club over to the fans like real. this season has been a fucking disaster of shit making proportions we only had to beat wolves, blackpool (twice)and some other load of shite and we'd be in the champions , thats the real crux of the matter.
