BBC football pundit Mark Lawrenson has had his say on who will win this weekend’s Premier League match between Huddersfield Town and Tottenham Hotspur.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side go into the match having won their last two matches (admittedly the latter on penalties), having ended a run of three successive defeats.

Huddersfield sit rooted to the bottom of the table having only picked up two points from their opening six matches.

Tottenham will be without the services of Christian Eriksen due to an abdominal injury, along with Hugo Lloris, Michel Vorm and Serge Aurier who are all sidelined.

Fans will be expecting the return of the likes of Harry Kane and Jan Vertonghen after they were rested for the Carabao Cup victory against Watford at Stadium MK.

Lawrenson is fully expecting Spurs to pick up another Premier League win this weekend.

He told BBC Sport Online: “Huddersfield are yet to win in the league this season and are bottom of the table after their defeat by Leicester, and it is hard to see things improving for them this weekend.

“Spurs were very impressive when they won here last season, and I think we will see the same outcome this time.

“It is very difficult to talk about Huddersfield without being critical because, although they are organised and competitive, they don’t really look like scoring goals.

“There is nothing wrong with the Terriers’ application, it just comes down to a lack of quality.

“Lawro’s prediction: 0-2.”
