Mark Lawrenson predicts who will win between Tottenham and Wolves

BBC football pundit Mark Lawrenson has given his prediction ahead of Wolverhampton Wanderers’ trip to Wembley to face Tottenham Hotspur.

Spurs are unbeaten in their last 39 Premier League matches versus newly promoted teams (W36 D3), since losing 0-1 versus QPR in April 2012 and will be looking to continue the trend tomorrow.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side are now in second place in the Premier League and are just six points behind leaders Liverpool.  The Reds face two tough fixtures, starting with Arsenal at home tomorrow and a trip to Manchester City next Thursday.

Tottenham will assess Dele Alli (hamstring) in the lead-up to kick-off, although right-back Serge Aurier is fully fit after a groin problem.

Jan Vertonghen, Eric Dier, Victor Wanyama and Mousa Dembele all remain sidelined.

None of Tottenham’s 19 league games this season have been drawn. The last team to not draw any of their opening 20 games in a top-flight season were Burnley in 1953-54 (first 27).

Lawrenson has tipped Spurs to continue their winning ways.

He told BBC Sport Online: “Tottenham are on a roll at the moment – the goals are flowing and they are playing fantastically well.

“I would not be surprised if Wolves create a few chances in this game – Bournemouth managed it at Wembley on Wednesday – but Spurs have built up a head of steam and will be difficult to stop.

“Lawro’s prediction: 2-0.”
