BBC pundit Mark Lawrenson predicts Tottenham Hotspur v Hull City result

BBC pundit Mark Lawrenson has predicted today's game between Tottenham Hotspur and Hull City.

Pundit Mark Lawrenson has written in his BBC prediction column that Tottenham Hotspur and Hull City will draw 1-1 in today's Premier League clash.

Tottenham's 3-0 defeat to Stoke City was their second loss in a row, and now means that they have won just once in the last six games.

Mauricio Pochettino has seen his side fade in recent weeks, and with Spurs sitting four points behind fifth placed Liverpool, it seems that sixth is the best that Tottenham can hope for with just two games left to play.

Today sees Tottenham play at White Hart Lane for the final time this season, and they welcome a Hull side who are fighting for their lives at the bottom of the table.

With QPR and Burnley already relegated, there is just one relegation spot remaining - and right now, Hull City occupy that place.

Having lost 1-0 to Burnley last week, Hull are right up against it, facing Tottenham away today before Manchester United at home next weekend.

A win is needed from at least one of those games, but Lawrenson has predicted that the game will end in a 1-1 draw, with Hull unable to get the win they so desperately require.

"Last weekend's defeat by Burnley was a body blow for Hull, and this game is massive for them now," said Lawrenson. "It won't be easy either. It's true that Tottenham have not been playing well recently but this is their last home game of the season and they might be in a different kind of mood for this one. This game could turn into a scrap, which is something Hull are good at, but I am not sure the Tigers will get the win they desperately need."
