BBC football pundit Mark Lawrenson has shared his prediction ahead of Tottenham Hotspur’s match against Leicester City on Sunday.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side go into the game at Wembley Stadium having only lost one of their last six matches in the competition, while Leicester have only managed to win one of their last six and find themselves in eleventh place in the table.

Spurs enjoyed a comfortable a comfortable 2-0 win at the Foxes in December, courtesy of goals from Heung-min Son and Dele Alli.

Only three points will do for Spurs if they are to retain any hope of a late title challenge, with Chelsea playing Manchester City on Sunday afternoon it is a prime opportunity to close the gap on City.

The manager will have one eye on Wednesday’s huge Champions League first leg against Borussia Dortmund.

Lawrenson believes that Spurs will continue their rich vein of form in the league by picking up the victory.

He told BBC Sport: “Leicester created enough chances to get something out of their game with Manchester United, but the point they got against Liverpool last week is the only thing they have to show from their past five games in all competitions.

“In contrast, Tottenham just keep on finding a way to win games despite obviously still being without some of their key players.

“When you look into why or how they have done it, it all leads back to Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino. I think he will collect another three points here.

“Prediction: 2-1.”
