BBC football pundit Mark Lawrenson has predicted that Tottenham Hotspur will beat Sunderland on Saturday.
He told BBC Sport Online: “Tottenham’s results have been excellent of late, particularly if you consider the key players who have been missing. Roman Pavyluchenko has come in and scored goals, as has Peter Crouch, while David Bentley has been playing well.
“Sunderland had a good spell but they were taken apart by Liverpool last Sunday, and there was really nothing they could do about it.
“Spurs will be desperate to win and boost their fourth place hopes – particularly as they face the toughest of runs after this with games against Arsenal, Chelsea and Man Utd.
