Former Liverpool defender Mark Lawrenson has shared his prediction ahead of Tottenham Hotspur’s Premier League fixture against Norwich City tomorrow afternoon.

Last time out, Lawrenson correctly predicted that Spurs would beat Burnley, however, he suggested that they would run out 3-0 winners when in fact they had to rely on a Harry Kane penalty to get the win (BBC).

Tottenham head to Carrow Road in the last match of the current campaign knowing that they hold the advantage in the race for fourth place in the table.

Antonio Conte’s side hold a two-point advantage and a significantly better goal difference over their north London rivals Arsenal, who have to rely on a Spurs defeat and themselves securing a home victory against Everton if they are to cause an upset and secure Champions League football.

In his last-ever set of predictions for the BBC before retirement, Lawrenson admits that he does not see Spurs slipping up against Dean Smith’s side.

He said: “I know there is this perception that Tottenham can always slip up, but not this time.

“I am expecting Norwich to give them a game but Spurs have got Dejan Kulusevski now as well as Harry Kane and Son Heung-min and I don’t see the Canaries holding out, let alone beating them.

“Spurs have fought so hard to get into this position, where they just need a point to get back into the Champions League after two seasons away. I don’t see them falling at the final hurdle.

“Lawro’s prediction: 0-2.”

Tottenham’s Champions League fate rests in their own hands against a side who have been victorious in only one of their previous 14 league games.

Conte will certainly not be taking his opponents for granted and will be looking to ensure there is no last-minute embarrassment in East Anglia.
