Everton v Tottenham

This has turned into a big game for Tottenham after they dropped more points at home in their last game against Burnley. If they lose at Goodison Park, they will have made a poor start.

I don't think Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino will allow that to happen. His teams normally play well when it matters, and I think we will see a reaction from them.

Everton are no pushovers, but I am not sure who is going to prise open the Spurs defence. Sandro Ramirez is still adjusting to the English game and they seem a little short in attack.

Lawro's prediction: 0-2
Oh no thats us fked then.
I think he's working on the reverse psychology of 'I'm always wrong so if I want them to lose I'll back them and tempt fate.'
I do same thing when betting. I've put £10 on Man U this weekend. That'll fk up their so called great start lol.

I wonder when the last time he predicted Liverpool to actually lose. I'm pretty sure they were undefeated in his table for the last two seasons at least.

I consistenty had a double on Leicester and Arse in the run-in 15/16. Unfortunately it backfired and I won almost every week.

With him getting the Newcastle and Everton predictions right, at least in terms of us winning, is he not getting seriously concerned about us running Liverpool close in the title race?

Tottenham v Swansea (17:30 BST)

The way Tottenham dismantled Everton last week was very impressive.

In contrast, Swansea really struggled against Newcastle.

After seeing the Swans beat Crystal Palace, I was not too worried about Paul Clement's side getting dragged into the relegation battle this season - but any more complete non-performances like that would be a real cause for concern.
Much has been made of Spurs' poor record at Wembley until they beat Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday.

But even if they had stayed at White Hart Lane, it would have been a huge ask for them to repeat their results there last season when they won 17 and drew two of their 19 home league games.

This is the kind of game I would expect Spurs to win comfortably, regardless of the venue.

Lawro's prediction: 2-0

Huddersfield v Tottenham (12:30 BST)

Huddersfield picked up another decent point last week against Burnley, but it has been a while since they won in the Premier League, which is obviously a concern.

The Terriers are still unbeaten at home this season, but I don't think that will be the case for much longer.

At the moment, Tottenham are probably stronger on the road than they are at Wembley - and after wins at West Ham and Apoel Nicosia I think they will make it three away wins in seven days.

Lawro's prediction: 0-2

Tottenham v Bournemouth

Tottenham are still waiting for their first Premier League win at Wembley, but I think it will soon be over because I just don't see Bournemouth holding out the way that, say,Swansea did last month.

For one thing, the Cherries concede goals quite easily, and then you consider Spurs striker Harry Kane and the kind of form he is in.

And Spurs have to win this one, really. They have already dropped points at home to the Swans and Burnley - they cannot afford another slip-up.

Lawro's prediction: 2-0

Really looking forward to Lawro predicting a comfortable Spurs win at the weekend.
He will predict 1-1. Nailed on.
If I could get money on this, I would.


All the money.
BBC Sport football expert Mark Lawrenson says: "Liverpool beat Spurs pretty comfortably at Anfield last season and Klopp has got two draws against them at White Hart Lane - including his first game in charge.

"As well as being unbeaten against Tottenham, I think his team have always generally been the better side in those matches.

"Winning at Wembley is a big ask, because Spurs are playing well, but I would back Klopp to come away with something on Sunday."

Tottenham v Liverpool (16:00 BST)

It has been a good week for Tottenham, who broke their Wembley hoodoo in the Premier League by beating Bournemouth, and were very good against Real in their draw in Madrid in the Champions League.

Liverpool enjoyed themselves against Maribor on Tuesday but this is obviously going to be a much tougher game for them.

It is going to be close. I can see the Reds scoring, but I don't see them keeping Spurs out.

Lawro's prediction: 1-1


Someone please forward all the money on to @hughy.

I'm not sure of the result, but I do know it will not be that scoreline.

Don't think he's said anything too controversial there, i'd go for 2-2 myself.

If Poch hasn't learned from his previous meetings against Liverpool then I can't see us doing any better than a draw, however, if he's taken note of teams that have frustrated and beaten them then this could be a good afternoon for us.
