BBC football pundit Mark Lawrenson has had his say on who he thinks will win the Premier League match between Tottenham Hotspur and Cardiff City.

Both sides meet at Wembley tomorrow afternoon and nothing less than three points will be acceptable for Spurs as we look to maintain our aspirations of another top four finish.

Tottenham are going through somewhat of an injury crisis at the moment and will again be without the likes of Dele Alli and Jan Vertonghen for the visit of the Premier League strugglers.

After a disappointing defeat to Barcelona on Wednesday evening, Mauricio Pochettino will be looking for his players to bounce back with an impressive performance.

A victory for Spurs will keep us in the top four.

Lawrenson told BBC Sport online: “This is going to be a very different test for Tottenham after their defeat by Barcelona in midweek.

“Spurs just have to look at that Barca game in isolation, and forget about it, because it will have no bearing on this game.

“Cardiff will try to close Tottenham down and stop them playing but it is going to be difficult for them at Wembley.

“The Bluebirds are in a similar situation to Huddersfield in that they are down at the bottom of the table and do not appear to have the personnel to do much about it.

“At the top end, with two of the three teams above them – Manchester City and Liverpool – playing each other, this is a big chance for Tottenham to get closer to at least one of them.

“Lawro’s prediction: 3-0.”
