Mark Lawrenson has made his weekly round of Premier League predictions for the BBC website and he is forecasting that the Spurs v Latics clash at White Hart Lane will end in a home win, let’s take a look at his reasons:
Tottenham v Wigan
Wigan were very good value for their victory over West Ham last week. They could and should have won that game far more comfortably than 2-1.
The quality of their goals and their general play was outstanding and it was the sort of display we normally don’t see from them until they are fighting for their lives from February or March onwards.
It might be a sign they are about to climb the table but then this is the Latics we are talking about.
They are amazingly inconsistent at this stage of the season, as they proved in going out of the Capital One Cup to League Two side Bradford in midweek, so I am thinking they are going to go to White Hart Lane and get rolled over.
Going out of the same competition to Norwich in midweek was a blow for Tottenham too but they have looked in good shape in the Premier League and I am backing them to come back with a bang on Saturday.
A home win is probably the logical choice here but I really do think we will get something from the game, so I’m going for a 1-1 draw
