BBC football pundit Mark Lawrenson has had his say on who he thinks will win the match between West Bromwich Albion and Tottenham Hotspur.

Tottenham travel to the Hawthorns looking to cement their place the top four and their name in next season’s Champions League, while the Baggies must win to keep their hopes of Premier League survival alive.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side are five points ahead of Chelsea and could go into third, two points in front of Liverpool with the same amount of games played.

Lawrenson told BBC Sport online: “I have not called West Brom ‘in-form’ for a while but the results just keep coming for the Baggies under caretaker boss Darren Moore.

“There is speculation that player power is the reason Puel’s job is under threat at Leicester but it appears that it played its part in Alan Pardew’s struggles as Baggies boss too.

“What other conclusion could you possibly draw from their upturn in form since Pardew left?

“Moore has done brilliantly but you have to be very careful before you give him the job permanently.

“His situation now is very different to how it would be in the summer, because at the moment there is absolutely no pressure on him or his team.

“This is where the Baggies revival ends, though. They need to win to have any chance of staying up, but I see them being beaten by Tottenham.

“Spurs are almost certain of a top-four place after their win against Watford on Monday and they will be home and hosed if they win this game too.

“Lawro’s prediction: 0-2.”
