BBC football pundit Mark Lawrenson has given his prediction on the outcome of Tottenham Hotspur’s match against Fulham in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
A depleted Spurs side will make the trip to Craven Cottage, missing two of their most potent attacking threats.
Harry Kane is sidelined until at least early March with an ankle injury while Heung-min Son will be on international duty with South Korea until potentially the first week in February.
Eric Dier has returned to training, but has only been deemed fit enough to be on the bench which poses selection issues for the central of midfield due to Moussa Sissoko’s groin injury and the
departure of Mousa Dembele.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men come into the match looking to put the disappointing 1-0 defeat to Manchester United behind them and bounce back with a victory to tighten their grip on a top-four finish.
The hosts have only managed to win one of their last five matches in the Premier League and find themselves deep in a battle against relegation.
However, Lawrenson believes that Spurs will still have enough quality to get the win.
He told BBC Sport: “Things could not have gone much worse for Tottenham last time out, with Harry Kane and Moussa Sissoko both injured in their defeat by Manchester United.
“But even without those two, and Son, I still think Spurs will have far too much for Fulham, who have only signed one player – former Liverpool winger Ryan Babel – this month.
