    Tottenham v Aston Villa (14:00 BST)

    Aston Villa are ticking along nicely and got a great win at Old Trafford last time out. They played well, and stuck at it too - they were so determined, and it paid off.

    The opposite was the case for Tottenham in their dismal derby defeat against Arsenal. That was a real worry - if you cannot get yourself motivated for a game like that one, then you have got serious problems.

    Nuno Espirito Santo has to improve the mood and morale in his camp, but he also needs to get Harry Kane firing. I think that will happen soon, which is why I am backing Spurs here.

    Lawro's prediction: 2-1

    Newcastle v Tottenham (16:30 BST)

    I keep reading about who the next Newcastle manager is going to be, so I feel sorry for Magpies boss Steve Bruce, because no-one has come out and said what is happening to him.

    Whatever the decision is on his future, just tell him and make it public - don't just leave him dangling. It's not an ideal situation for him or his players.

    Tottenham found a bit of form against Aston Villa in their last game, but they are still far from convincing and I don't think they will be able to spoil the party for the Newcastle fans in the stands.

    Lawro's prediction: 1-1

    West Ham v Tottenham (14:00)

    West Ham got a really good win at Everton last week in a game I had a feeling they would nick.

    Tottenham's revival continued at Newcastle, where their quality came through after a difficult start and Harry Kane got off the mark in the Premier League.

    This one is hard to call. I don't think there will be much between them on Sunday, or come the end of the season.

    Lawro's prediction: 1-1

    Tottenham v Man Utd (17:30 BST)

    Solskjaer has got to make United difficult to beat. Forget any flamboyant football for now, they just need to start being more solid.

    With the players United have got, they are a counter-attacking team. They need to start playing like one, and soak up the pressure and play on the break.

    Don't give me the spiel that just pouring forward is 'the United way' because the game has changed completely from those days. They need to build from back to front, and give themselves a proper foundation.

    This is a tricky game to approach if you are a manager under pressure like Solskjaer is, but Tottenham are still quite scatty themselves so would not surprise me if United went there and won.

    Lawro's prediction: 1-2

    Everton v Tottenham (14:00 GMT)

    Everton are simply not as good going forward while Dominic Calvert-Lewin is out injured, but on top of that they have got some real issues at the back.

    Antonio Conte is only just starting to get his teeth into turning this Tottenham team around, but I think they will be right at it here, as they try to impress their new manager.

    We will probably see Spurs playing with wing-backs, operating high up the pitch, but what I am really waiting to see is whether he can get a song out of Harry Kane and Son Heung-min up front.

    Lawro's prediction: 1-2

    Tottenham v Leeds (16:30 GMT)

    Leeds are another team who I think are lacking something defensively.

    Tottenham manager Antonio Conte still hasn't had much chance to work with his players since he took charge at the start of the month but they should create plenty of chances here. If Harry Kane is firing, they will win comfortably enough.

    Lawro's prediction: 2-0

    Burnley v Tottenham (14:00)

    Antonio Conte has made a strong start at Spurs with four points from his first two games in charge and he will know exactly what to expect at Turf Moor.

    Burnley have just started building a nice little unbeaten run, with a win and three draws in their past four league games, but I don't see them stopping Spurs.

    Lawro's prediction: 1-2

    Tottenham v Brentford (19:30 GMT)

    I was impressed by Brentford in their win over Everton. I always thought they would win enough games to stay in the Premier League and that is becoming evident.

    I am going with a Tottenham home win here, though. Their game at Burnley on Sunday was snowed off and that just means Antonio Conte will get even more time with his players.

    I just picture him constantly working with them tactically, as well as on their fitness, and I think his good start at Spurs will continue here.

    Lawro's prediction: 2-0

    Good start, huh? Guess that result in Slovenia made him happy.

    Leicester v Tottenham (19:30 BST)

    Leicester are very difficult to predict at the moment because every time it looks as if they have got their spark back, they chuck in a poor performance.

    This time, though, I think they will follow up their convincing win over Newcastle with another three points.

    That's assuming this game takes place, of course. Tottenham's game at Brighton on Sunday was postponed because a number of positive Covid-19 cases among the Spurs squad.

    We don't know who was affected, or how many players are still out, but if they are at less than full strength, then that will obviously favour the Foxes.

    Leicester have had their own issues with illness and injury but they rested Jamie Vardy at the weekend, so he will be fresh for this one.

    Lawro's prediction: 2-1

    Yes, nothing guarantees future success like hammering hapless Newcastle.

    Tottenham v Liverpool (16:30)

    Tottenham have had two weeks without a game because of Covid but they have been able to train for most of that time which will have kept their boss Antonio Conte happy.

    Knowing what Conte is like, I just think he will have Spurs well drilled and lying in wait for Liverpool, and the time they have had to prepare for it makes me think they can get something out of the game.

    Liverpool haven't won in London yet this season after drawing with Brentford and losing to West Ham, and I think they might have to wait until they play Chelsea at the start of 2022 to try to put that right.

    Lawro's prediction: 1-1
