    Tottenham v Bournemouth

    The great thing for Tottenham after they beat Everton 6-2 was that nobody asked Mauricio Pochettino afterwards about going to United - the questions were all about whether Spurs can win the league.

    We already knew Tottenham are a very good team with a very clever manager but it was such a good display, and the result was one of those that makes you sit up and say 'wow'.

    Bournemouth got a good win against Brighton on Saturday but this is a different sort of test for them, and, if Spurs play at the level they can, they will win.

    Lawro's prediction: 2-0

    Tottenham v Wolves

    Tottenham are on a roll at the moment - the goals are flowing and they are playing fantastically well.

    I would not be surprised if Wolves create a few chances in this game - Bournemouth managed it at Wembley on Wednesday - but Spurs have built up a head of steam and will be difficult to stop.

    Lawro's prediction: 2-0

    Cardiff v Tottenham (17:30 GMT)

    I was listening to Tottenham v Wolves on 5 live, but switched the commentary off at half-time thinking the home side would win. They didn't, obviously, but we should focus on the fact Spurs came into the match having won five on the spin.

    Are the London club paying for not spending in the summer? I don't think so. Until Saturday they were second in the league. Of course, from Tuesday they have the chance of bringing in someone if they wish.

    Mauricio Pochettino's side don't have too many negative "wow" results - they usually comfortably beat teams outside the top six, so they should win in Wales.

    What Cardiff have shown this season is they can hang on in there. If they lose a couple of games it doesn't change their philosophy - they just keep going.

    Manager Neil Warnock has been open and vocal about looking to bring players in, and I think they've given themselves a chance of staying up.

    Lawro's prediction: 0-2

    Tottenham are one of those that I think will progress. Friday night will be a great occasion at Tranmere, who are back in the Football League now after some tough times, and are doing well in League Two.

    The money Rovers will get for having this tie live on BT will be very much appreciated too and Rovers have definitely earned it after needing replays to get past Oxford City and Southport in rounds one and two.

    Tottenham had a bit of a scare in last year's fourth round when they needed a replay to get past another League Two side, Newport County.

    This tie will also be far from easy, because Tranmere have only lost once at home this season, and they have got some goals in them from James Norwood and Connor Jennings, but I still think Spurs will edge it.

    Lawro's prediction: 1-2

    El Twunto has obviously put on weight over Christmas and fat fingered his way to hitting the 1 key.

    Tottenham v Man Utd (16:30 GMT)

    This is a big test for United caretaker Solskjaer and it will be interesting to see whether he will be as attack-minded at Wembley as in his first five games.

    It is quite possible United will not have the same amount of possession they have enjoyed in those matches - if not, they will need a different approach.

    Tottenham's methods, meanwhile, are tried and tested.

    There was more news about Tottenham's stadium this week but if it is not going to be ready until March, they are better off staying at Wembley until the end of the season.

    Moving grounds mid-season is something no Premier League team has done before, let alone one that might be challenging for the title at that late stage of the campaign and also trying to progress in the Champions League.

    If Spurs can wait until the summer to move, then they should do.

    Lawro's prediction: 2-1

    Fulham v Tottenham (16:00 GMT)

    Things could not have gone much worse for Tottenham last time out, with Harry Kane and Moussa Sissoko both injured in their defeat by Manchester United.

    But even without those two, and Son, I still think Spurs will have far too much for Fulham, who have only signed one player - former Liverpool winger Ryan Babel - this month.

    Lawro's prediction: 0-2

    Managed to get a dig at our transfer policy and Babel in one go.

    Crystal Palace v Tottenham (16:00 GMT)

    Premier League (14th) v Premier League (3rd)

    This is a very big game for Tottenham's season after Chelsea knocked them out of the Carabao Cup on Thursday.

    As daft as it sounds, though, with the way things are going with their injury list, going out of the FA Cup might be a blessing in disguise for Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino because he is running out of players, particularly in attack.

    This will be a tough ask for whatever team Pochettino puts out - I was at Anfield last week, and Crystal Palace were very good against Liverpool, so they are definitely capable of winning on Sunday.

    It is just down to whether Palace boss Roy Hodgson takes the FA Cup seriously, and I think he probably will give it a go.

    Lawro's prediction: 2-1

    Why is it a big game for our season?
    Dortmund is a big game for our season. This isn’t.

    I’d still like us to win it, if we can do so with a mix of youngsters and senior players who need matches.
    But if we lose it’s far from the end of the world.
