BBC pundit Mark Lawrenson has shared his prediction for Tottenham Hotspur’s clash against Chelsea on Sunday at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

“Jose Mourinho faces Chelsea for the first time as Tottenham manager, knowing a win will send his new side above them and into fourth spot,” Lawrenson told BBC.

“Blues boss Frank Lampard has done a very good job far and, as well as being easy on the eye, Chelsea have played very well at times this season.

“But there are still occasions when they are not quite at it, which you can put down to their manager’s inexperience.

“There is no love lost between these two teams, and no-one has ever been able to tell me why the two sets of fans detest each other so much.

“I think it is Spurs who will get bragging rights this weekend but, even if they do not win this game, they are certainly back in the race for the Champions League places now.”
