Former Liverpool defender Mark Lawrenson has shared his prediction ahead of Tottenham Hotspur’s match at Everton on Sunday.
Last time out, Lawrenson incorrectly predicted that Spurs would draw 1-1 with Liverpool when it ended as a 2-1 victory for Jurgen Klopp’s side following Serge Aurier’s moment of madness fifteen minutes from time.
Spurs will be looking to climb out of the bottom half of the Premier League table with a victory while the Toffees are also under pressure having found themselves just two points off the relegation zone.
Mauricio Pochettino will be without the services of Hugo Lloris, Danny Rose and Erik Lamela while Jan Vertonghen is a doubt with a hamstring issue and will continue to be assessed ahead of kick-off which is at 4:30pm on Sunday (Spurs official).
Lawrenson has tipped Tottenham to finally end their awful run of form away from home with a victory which includes a clean sheet.
He told BBC Sport: “Tottenham did not do very much wrong when I saw them lose 2-1 to Liverpool at Anfield last Sunday.
“If Son Heung-min had scored instead of hitting the bar as Spurs led 1-0 at the start of the second half, the outcome could have been different – but you have to remember the number of saves Paulo Gazzaniga had made to deny the Reds by that point.
“Keeping Everton out is not such a difficult task and although Spurs have not been at their best recently, I still think they should have too much for the Toffees.
“Where does that leave under-pressure Everton boss Marco Silva? I don’t know.
“His immediate future depends on the outlook of the club’s owners, but if Everton don’t win this game, I would say that Silva definitely cannot afford to lose his next one, which is away at Southampton.
“Lawro’s prediction: 0-2.
