Mark Lawrenson has backed Tottenham Hotspur to win against Brentford at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the Premier League on Thursday evening.
The Liverpool legend believes that Antonio Conte’s Tottenham will get the better of promoted club Brentford 2-0 at home in the London derby.
Lawrenson told BBC Sport: “I was impressed by Brentford in their win over Everton. I always thought they would win enough games to stay in the Premier League and that is becoming evident.
“I am going with a Tottenham home win here, though. Their game at Burnley on Sunday was snowed off and that just means Antonio Conte will get even more time with his players.
“I just picture him constantly working with them tactically, as well as on their fitness, and I think his good start at Spurs will continue here.”
Tottenham are seventh in the Premier League table at the moment with 19 points from 12 matches.
Meanwhile, Brentford currently find themselves 11th in the standings with 16 points from 13 games.
Spurs can be backed at 13/2 on Betfair to win the London derby against Brentford 2-1.
