Mark Lawrenson has predicted that Tottenham Hotspur will win against Aston Villa today.
Tottenham will take on Villa at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the Premier League this afternoon.
Spurs will head into the match against Dean Smith’s side on the back of a 5-1 victory over NS Mura at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the Europa Conference League.
Meanwhile, Villa lost 1-0 to Manchester United away from home at Old Trafford in the Premier League last weekend.
Liverpool legend Lawrenson believes that Spurs will pick up all three points from the encounter against Villa courtesy of a 2-1 win.
Lawrenson wrote on BBC Sport: “Aston Villa are ticking along nicely and got a great win at Old Trafford last time out. They played well, and stuck at it too – they were so determined, and it paid off
“The opposite was the case for Tottenham in their dismal derby defeat against Arsenal. That was a real worry – if you cannot get yourself motivated for a game like that one, then you have got serious problems.
“Nuno Espirito Santo has to improve the mood and morale in his camp, but he also needs to get Harry Kane firing. I think that will happen soon, which is why I am backing Spurs here.”
A footnote added: “Lawro’s prediction: 2-1.”
Tottenham can be backed at 15/2 on Betfair to win the Premier League game against Villa today.
