Former Liverpool defender and current BBC Sport pundit Mark Lawrenson says that he expects Tottenham to beat Leicester due to their impressive performances on the road.

Spurs have picked up 12 points from their last six away games, which is a better record than they have at home, where they have picked up the same number of points despite having played a game more at Wembley.

They have lost just two matches away from their temporary home this season, although they have been their most recent away games, losing to both Manchester United and north London rivals Arsenal.

The Lilywhites come into the clash at the King Power Stadium off the back of a 1-1 draw against a dogged West Brom side on Saturday, with Mauricio Pochettino’s men struggling to break down the Baggies despite their attacking prowess.

However, despite the disappointment of the weekend’s result, Lawrenson is backing Spurs to see off the Foxes, who drew 1-1 with West Ham in their last outing, and continue their surprise streak of being better away from home than in front of their own fans

Predicting a 2-0 win for the visitors, he wrote on the BBC Sport website: “Tottenham slipped up again at Wembley with their draw against West Brom and, again, their performance was not convincing either.

“They have lost at Old Trafford and Emirates Stadium, but generally they have played well and got positive results when they have gone away, and I am expecting that to continue against Leicester.

“Leicester manager Claude Puel has only lost one of his first four games in charge, but I would back Spurs to bounce back with a win – as they did after losing at Manchester United and Arsenal.”

Spurs are currently sitting in fifth after a disappointing run of form in the league, which has seen them pick up just one win in their last four games.

They were leapfrogged by Arsenal after the weekend’s results, and are now 13 points behind league leaders Manchester City.
