Mark Lawrenson has backed Tottenham Hotspur to beat Bournemouth at Dean’s Court on Sunday afternoon.

The north London side are in second place in the Premier League table and five points behind leaders Leicester City after last weekend’s 2-0 win at Aston Villa.

The Lilywhites have won six of their last eight Premier League games ahead of Sunday’s trip to England’s south coast.

Tottenham suffered a humbling 5-0 aggregate defeat by Borussia Dortmund on Thursday night after the German side secured a 2-0 win at White Hart Lane.

However, former Liverpool defender Lawrenson believes Spurs will end Bournemouth’s good home run this weekend.

“Bournemouth’s past four games have seen them take 10 points out of a possible 12 but I see their good run ending on Sunday,” Lawrenson told BBC Sport.

“The Cherries will go at Tottenham but I think that will suit Mauricio Pochettino’s side, who are focused on their title bid.”

Tottenham have conceded less goals than any other side in the Premier League this season.

Spurs were 2-0 winners against Aston Villa last time out thanks to Harry Kane’s brace either side of half-time.
