    haha Wishful thinking. He speaks for most Liverpool fans. They are getting desperate. They are can not cope with the fact we are pulling away from them on the pitch and closing the gap every day off the field.

    Maybe we might lose today but it will not be because that we will be playing our best players...

    Tottenham v Middlesbrough (17:30 GMT)

    Tottenham struggled to create chances at Sunderland and will consider that draw to be two points dropped.

    Middlesbrough will also try to shut them out but Spurs have been in great form at home and I do not see it happening.

    Lawro's prediction: 2-0

    Ah, we're back into Lawro's comfy slippers, the two-niller. I'm starting to think I'd be a bit bored with this by now if I were him.

    Edit: Twunt.

    Liverpool v Tottenham (17:30 GMT)

    I think this is a good game to get an improved performance out of Liverpool - a bit like the Chelsea game was last week.

    The Blues were one of the few teams to have come to Anfield in the past few weeks and not just sat with all their men in their own half in a 4-5-1 formation.

    Tottenham are good defensively and well organised full-stop, but their full-backs will bomb on and that will give Liverpool some space to work with, especially on the counter-attack.

    Lawro's prediction: 1-1

    Fulham v Tottenham (14:00 GMT - live on BBC One from 13:40 GMT)

    Fulham are one of the most attractive teams to watch in the Championship. There is a lot of talk of 16-year-old left-back Ryan Sessegnon, who is an outstanding prospect, but Tom Cairney in midfield is a very good player. In Slavisa Jokanovic, the former Watford boss, they have a manager who really should still be in the Premier League as well.

    We are not quite sure what sort of team Tottenham will put out. They included Harry Kane, Dele Alli and other first-choice players from the start against Gent in the Europa League on Thursday night which might be a factor.

    I think Tottenham might struggle to get the job done at Craven Cottage, but I think they will come through a replay back at White Hart Lane.

    Lawro's prediction: 1-1

    Robbie (ArsenalFanTV): Come on Fulham! No, I'm trying not to be biased doing this, but this is a game where you could see a shock. Fulham are playing some decent stuff at home, Tottenham will probably rest a few players, you never know. 1-1.

    Fulhamish Podcast: I think we can pull off an upset, but it is going to be a very, very close game. We are two clubs with strong footballing identities, who love to keep possession, and have great full-backs. 1-1

    Tottenham v Stoke (13:30 GMT)

    I thought Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino's team selection for their FA Cup win over Fulham was a really clever move.

    Pochettino made some changes but stuck with the spine of the side he would use for Premier League games.

    He picked a team to win the game, and I think most top-flight managers should do the same in the FA Cup. You can do that, and still rest some of your players.

    Spurs were outplayed in their last league game, at Liverpool, because they were not allowed enough of the ball.

    Sunday will be a different story. Stoke will dig in, of course, but Tottenham have got players who can hurt them.

    Lawro's prediction: 2-0

    i missed this one - he would have been bang on form if he put his staple 2-0. But no one saw it coming, even this twunt !

    Let's hope he's right about the Stoke game. The twunt.

    Tottenham v Everton (13:30 GMT)

    Tottenham made a disappointing exit from the Europa League but they never seem to be off the boil for very long, as they showed with their 4-0 win over Stoke.

    Generally Spurs are very good defensively and, at the other end, they just ripped the Potters apart last week - Harry Kane's hat-trick was top drawer.

    I know Everton are nine games unbeaten in the league, but going to White Hart Lane and continuing that run is a huge ask.

    I have seen that Toffees boss Ronald Koeman has been linked with the Barcelona job next season but surely Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino will also be interesting Barca?

    It will be interesting to see what happens there but I think both managers enjoy being in the Premier League and they both also know they are building something at the moment.

    Lawro's prediction: 2-0

    Tottenham v Millwall (FA Cup, 14:00 GMT KO, live on BBC One from 13:30 GMT)

    Millwall are flying in League One and have not lost any of their past 17 games in all competitions.

    The Lions also went nine games without conceding a goal before MK Dons found the net against them on Saturday.

    They have already beaten three Premier League teams - Bournemouth, Watford and Leicester - to get this far, so it is fitting that now they have landed one of the really big boys.

    I think this is where the Lions' run ends, though.

    Spurs striker Harry Kane cannot stop scoring and his partnership with Dele Alli looks very special. Tottenham will just be too strong for them.

    Lawro's prediction: 2-0

    Tottenham v Southampton (14:15 GMT)

    Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has been making all the right noises about how his side will cope without the injured Harry Kane, but they will undoubtedly miss him.

    Kane has been in brilliant form and part of what makes him so deadly is his ability to score goals out of nothing.

    Southampton are a strange team and very difficult to predict, but I am going to go for a scruffy Spurs win - even without Kane, they still should have enough.

    Lawro's prediction: 2-0

    Burnley v Tottenham

    Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli both scored for Tottenham in their last game against Southampton and, with Harry Kane injured, it is important they both continue to chip in with goals.

    But I think Spurs will miss Kane more at Turf Moor, and Burnley will give them a real test, as they have done to all the top teams.

    The Clarets have already beaten Liverpool and drawn with Chelsea at home, and were a bit unlucky to lose to Arsenal and Emirates Marketing Project.

    Nobody has gone to Burnley and rolled Sean Dyche's team over, and I think they will pick up another point here as they keep edging towards Premier League safety.

    Lawro's prediction: 1-1

    Swansea City v Tottenham

    I thought Tottenham would struggle against Burnley on Saturday but in the end they won comfortably, despite their injuries.

    Fernando Llorente will be a big miss for Swansea if he is still out injured, but I would back Tottenham's defence to cope with him anyway.

    Swansea are just starting to stutter a little bit, but Spurs just seem to keep going.

    Lawro's prediction: 0-1

    Tottenham v Watford (12:30 BST)

    Tottenham's late comeback to beat Swansea underlined how they just keep going and don't give up, which is a great thing for any team to have about them.

    People thought Mauricio Pochettino's side would struggle for goals without the injured Harry Kane, but they have now scored seven in three games without him, and have won all of them too.

    I don't think it will be easy for Tottenham on Saturday - Watford showed that by beating in-form West Brom on Tuesday.

    The Hornets will put up more of a fight than they did when Spurs brushed them aside at Vicarage Road on New Year's Day, and they cannot be any worse defensively than they were that day, but it is hard to see them stopping this Tottenham side.

    Spurs' title hopes are reliant on Chelsea slipping up - but a second-place finish would be a great achievement and more progress for them. They are still in the FA Cup as well, of course, and they just have to keep plugging away.

    Lawro's prediction: 2-0

    Tottenham v Bournemouth (12:30 BST)

    Tottenham just swatted Watford away last week to make it six league wins in a row and I cannot see Bournemouth stopping them from making it seven.

    The Cherries stayed unbeaten in March to climb away from the relegation zone and posed Chelsea a few problems in their last match, but I still watched that thinking that a Blues win was inevitable.

    It will be the same story against Spurs this time. Bournemouth are lively coming forward but under sustained pressure they do not look like they have enough defensively to hold out.

    Lawro's prediction: 3-0
