Lawro predicts Spurs to lose against Chelsea


White Hart Lane - Header

BBC Football pundit Mark Lawrenson has predicted that Tottenham Hotspur will lose to Chelsea on Saturday evening.

He told BBC Sport Online: “Tottenham’s performance in their 2-1 win over Arsenal was a great way to respond to their FA Cup semi-final defeat to Portsmouth.

“Can they do it again and beat Chelsea? I’m going to have to say ‘no’. The problem for Spurs is that there is a doubt over Ledley King being able to play another game quite so quickly after the last one.

“I just think Chelsea have got too much pace, power and nous. Not only that, but they’ve had an extra day’s rest, while boss Carlo Ancelotti can bring Florent Malouda, Joe Cole and Deco back into his starting line-up if he wants to.

“Chelsea are now four points clear of Manchester United, but they looked a bit tense during their 1-0 win over Bolton. The closer you get to the finish line, the more tense it gets.

“Prediction: 0-2.”


Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Haha he is such an idiot – who the hell made him a pundit? We have the joint best defensive home record in the league. We've conceded 9 goals ALL season at home. NOBODY, except Manchester United, have scored more than one goal at WHL this season.

    He just guesses.

  2. Well, don't take it personally – at least he doesn't say anything negative about Spurs there. His only real reason is that Spurs will have one less day to prepare. Also, he did not tap in to the obvious 'Spurs don't do well against the big boys' thing.

    I have a little bit of respect for Lawrenson – why? Because he is the ONLY pundit who predicts the scores, and then the following week they assess how he did against the actual results. He doesn't just run his mouth off, get all predictions wrong, and hopes that nobody notices…

  3. This bloke is not to be listened to. Him and that Stelling prick aint got a fucking clue they just talk for the sake of talking. Wankers. COYS

  4. At the end of the day, it's down to the Spurs team.If they approach this match, the same way they did against Arsenal,then is down to the chances they create and how many they can put away.It's a tough game, but if we play like i know we can, we have every chance. Good luck Spurs!! Any pundit can say whatever they want.

  5. Considering how Liverpool have lost a third of their games, it is shocking that he still fails to predict them losing. This site shows the league table based on his predictions:
    He obviously looks down on Birmingham….
    However, I don't blame him (too much) for still being pro Liverpool – he is not the only one. The ex-Spurs pundits are worse – Hoddle, Pleat, and Mabbutt.

  6. Yet again he expects us to lose it's getting borning now just scared his little scouse ain't even going to play in europe next year

  7. he needs to shut the fuck up he is a complete prick he is jealous that his team is so shit that they are struggling to finish in 6th place, he is the same as phil thompson and alan hanson al three of them are complete wankers
    how good would it be if we beat chelsea havng beaten arsenal in the same week
    gonna be another great atmosphere, all you chelsea wankers coming to the lane actually make some noise for once, heard that lennon maybe on the bench 2moro hope its true
