Lawro predicts Spurs to draw with Chelsea


White Hart Lane

BBC football pundit Mark Lawrenson has predicted that Tottenham Hotspur will draw with Chelsea tonight at White Hart Lane.

It’s always a good omen when Lawro doesn’t back us for a win, so fingers crossed we can take all three points against our London rivals this evening.

He told BBC Sport Online: “Tottenham managed to get over the line against Sunderland by sneaking a 1-0 win, but with Gareth Bale doubtful for the game and Aaron Lennon being out for a while, it will make a difference to their side.

“When you don’t have that pace in the wide areas, teams are able to get back and regroup into position and make it more difficult.

“Some of the Chelsea players didn’t look like they fancied it at Wigan, which was surprising. It was as though they had beaten City and thought: “It’s only Wigan, we can go roll them over”.

“As good as Didier Drogba has been recently, he just didn’t work hard enough for the team so we’ll see if Andre Villas-Boas sticks with him. This is a massive game because I feel Tottenham, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool are all playing for third and fourth spot in the table.

“Prediction: 1-1.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Does Lawro mean Liverpool will be playing for 3rd or forth from bottom, because that is the only ones they are likely to get they are crap and with Suarez out for 8 games, he is having a laugh

  2. if yoiu settle for a draw it means your mediocre. You only settle for a win if you wear the shirt with the fighting cockerel. I remember when I was a kid and shook Dave Mackays hand at the white hart and he said "Better to lose trying to win than settling for a draw". I also met Tommy Harmer when I was about six. He was another great.

  3. Lawro was on the button. He is a footballing genius and don't ever be fooled into thinking otherwise. I love him and want to touch his face. He is the epitome of punditry professionalism, the very manifestation of the God of Sport, here on earth walking amongst us.

  4. LAWRO WAS A GREAT GREAT PLAYER SO WAS ALAN.they were a great parternership in the liverpool side that dominated the world even though i hate scousers.
