Mark Lawrenson predicts the result of Tottenham v Wolves

Another round of Premier League games following the midweek programme means another week of Mark Lawrenson’s weekly BBC predictions column.

The former Liverpool defender has delivered his verdict on how he thinks Wolves will get on against Tottenham on Sunday.

Bruno Lage’s men go into the game on the back of two straight losses and Lawrenson said he expects the losing streak to continue here.

Lawrenson’s prediction

“Tottenham are very up and down at the moment which must be frustrating for their manager Antonio Conte.

“He will have been especially unhappy at the way they lost to Southampton on Wednesday after leading 2-1 with 10 minutes to go – which was a kind of role reversal of the way Spurs fought back to beat Leicester in injury time last month.

“So I am not really sure which Spurs we will see here, but we know what to expect from Wolves now. The task for Conte and his players is to find a way of breaking them down.

Lawro’s prediction: Tottenham 2-0 Wolves.”

Spurs are beatable on their own patch; Southampton showed that on Wednesday night and could have won by more in north London.

Wolves are tough to break down and could have got something out of the clash with Arsenal on another night.

Brushing up on the set piece defending will help Wolves – especially as they will likely look to keep the game very tight and counter.
