Former Liverpool defender and BBC football pundit Mark Lawrenson has tipped Tottenham Hotspur to beat Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Both sides meet in the Premier League in tomorrow’s late kick off, with Mauricio Pochettino expected to recall his star players after making ten changes to the side for Wednesday night’s 3-1 victory against West Ham United in the Carabao Cup.

Mousa Dembele, Harry Kane, Hugo Lloris and Toby Alderweireld all sat out the match at the London Stadium and many fans will expect them to start.

Wolves are looking to end a two game losing streak whilst Tottenham are seeking revenge for Monday’s disappointing 1-0 loss to champions Manchester City at Wembley.

The historic form guide looks good for Spurs having won four of their last six top-flight games against Wolves at Molineux (D1 L1).

Spurs will once again be without the services of the defensive duo of Jan Vertonghen (hamstring) and Danny Rose (groin).

Lawrenson told the BBC: “I was surprised that Wolves were beaten by Brighton last weekend, but that was another lesson for them about life in the top-flight – and how you can still be beaten even if you have the better of a game.

“It will be interesting to see if Wolves manage to have the majority of play and possession in this game, and how they approach it.

“Manchester City are the only top six team to have come to Molineux so far this season – Wolves took the game to them, and it worked.

“A lot has been said about Tottenham this week following their defeat by Manchester City, most of it negative.

“Their wait to get into their new ground is clearly affecting the whole club but, on the pitch, from one to 11 they are still a very good side that has made a very good start to the season.

“Lawro’s prediction: 0-2.”
