Mark Lawrenson makes confident claim about Tottenham, predicts result against West Brom

Mark Lawrenson believes Tottenham Hotspur will beat West Bromwich Albion 3-0 on Monday.

Pundit Mark Lawrenson has told BBC Sport that he thinks Tottenham Hotspur will coast past West Bromwich Albion with a 3-0 win on Monday evening.

Tottenham hammered Stoke City 4-0 last Monday to pile the pressure back on league leaders Leicester City, but the Foxes responded by thrashing Swansea City 4-0 this weekend.

Tottenham and Leicester are the only two teams who can now win the Premier League title, but Spurs will need to beat West Brom to keep their slim hopes alive.

Mauricio Pochettino's men have been superb this term, as they have not only been rock solid at the back, but they have seen attacking players like Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli and Harry Kane thrive too.

On Monday though, they take on a potentially stubborn West Brom side, who will be looking to respond after four defeats in the last five Premier League games.

Tony Pulis' men can be difficult to break down, but pundit Mark Lawrenson has told BBC Sport that he thinks Tottenham will win the game 3-0 and continue their push for the title.

Lawrenson also made a bold claim about Spurs, suggesting that they are the best team in the Premier League in every department, despite the fact that they are currently eight points behind Leicester.

The former Liverpool defender also hailed Mauricio Pochettino for doing a 'wonderful job' in his two years at the club, and speaking before Leicester's win, he backed Spurs to keep the pressure on Claudio Ranieri's men.

"It is always much easier to be the chasing club in the title race but, even so, Tottenham are playing extremely well at the moment," said Lawrenson. "They have always had skilful players but they have now got application and endeavour too, and they never roll over. Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has done a wonderful job."

"Tottenham are built from the back but they have developed as the season has gone on and, at the moment, they are the best team in the league in every department. West Brom have taken only one point from their last four games and it is hard to see their form improving on Monday. However Leicester do on Sunday, Spurs will win this and keep the pressure on," he added.
