    Errm, is Lawro seriously trying to suggest that most of our first team contracting covid and therefore being unable to train for 10 days is giving us some sort of advantage!?

    What an absolute cretin.

    Tottenham v Crystal Palace (15:00 GMT)

    It is so far, so good for Tottenham manager Antonio Conte, who is still unbeaten in the Premier League after five games in charge and is starting to mould his squad into his own team.

    Palace out-played Spurs at Selhurst Park in September, which was the beginning of the end of Nuno Espirito Santo's short reign as Tottenham boss.

    The Eagles will still pose a threat but this is a very different Spurs team, and it is interesting to see Conte giving chances to players who were on the periphery under his predecessor. His team selections are working out pretty well.

    Lawro's prediction: 2-0

    Southampton v Tottenham (15:00 GMT)

    Southampton got a great win over West Ham on Sunday but they are very inconsistent, which is why they've spent most of the season in the bottom half of the table.

    Tottenham are still unbeaten in the league under Antonio Conte, who has won four and drawn two of his six games so far, but five of them have been at home so we are yet to really see what they are like under him on the road.

    That's why I'm going for a draw here, although I don't really know what to expect from Southampton - good or bad.

    Lawro's prediction: 1-1

    I guess even a complete TWUNT is right twice a year.

    Watford v Tottenham (15:00)

    Like Norwich, Watford are in a mess and are also on a run of five successive defeats.

    The difference with the Hornets is that they do carry a goal threat - they have scored at least once in each of those games, and took the lead in two of them.

    It is at the other end where Claudio Ranieri's side have major issues though, conceding an average of three per match during that run, and I don't see them keeping Tottenham out either.

    Spurs could not break down Southampton on Tuesday despite Saints playing the entire second half with 10 men, but Watford just do not have that kind of defensive discipline.

    Lawro's prediction: 0-2

    Tottenham v Arsenal (16:30 GMT)
    Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta says he is running out of players because of illness and injury, so there is a chance this game might be called off.

    If it goes ahead, I am not expecting a classic.

    The way Tottenham went out of the Carabao Cup without much of a fight was disappointing, but they are still unbeaten in the league in eight games under Antonio Conte.

    Conte will want to keep that record, so being hard to beat will be the priority, but I have a feeling Spurs will nick all three points, even though Son Heung-min is still out injured.

    Lawro's prediction: 1-0.

    Chelsea v Tottenham (16:30)

    I really do think Chelsea have to just deal with their busy schedule and get on with it.

    The Blues are not in good form but it probably helps them that they are playing Tottenham, firstly because they kept them at arm's length in both their Carabao Cup semi-final games recently, and also because this will be feisty and that should bring the best out of Tuchel's team.

    Spurs still haven't lost in the league under Antonio Conte, in a fantastic run that has lasted nine matches. I think that will end on Sunday, although it is going to be close.

    Lawro's prediction: 2-1
