BBC football pundit Mark Lawrenson has predicted that Tottenham Hotspur will beat Wigan Athletic.
Last time out Lawro incorrectly predicted that Spurs would draw 1-1 at Stoke, when it ended as a 2-1 win for Spurs.
He told BBC Sport Online: “Spurs will still be buzzing from Wednesday’s win over Young Boys which secured their place in the Champions League and, such is their strength in depth, they’ve got the luxury of being able to change their team around. Whether or not they bring in Roman Pavlyuchenko and Robbie Keane for Peter Crouch and Jermain Defoe, they’ll still be overwhelming favourites to see off Wigan, especially as it’s at White Hart Lane.
“I thought Wigan’s defending against Chelsea was even more desperate than Blackpool’s at Arsenal; their back four resembled a bunch of strangers who had just met up in the car park an hour before the match. At the start of the season we said the great thing about the Premier League was that there were no easy games but, looking at the way some teams have started the season, I’m not so sure.
