BBC Sport pundit Mark Lawrenson believes that Tottenham will continue their winning ways by seeing off relegation-threatened Stoke on Saturday.

Lawrenson has predicted that Spurs will walk away from the Bet365 Stadium as 2-0 winners, piling more concern on Paul Lambert and his side as they face a vital run-in on fixtures to preserve their Premier League status.

Harry Kane returned from injury in the 3-1 win at Chelsea last week and Lawrenson wants to see the key striker continue to build up his match fitness this weekend.

“Tottenham got a super result against Chelsea last time out, especially because it was the Blues who looked more like winning until Christian Eriksen equalised,” he said on the BBC Sport website.

“It was a big deal for Spurs to go on and win it after waiting 28 years for a victory at Stamford Bridge and they had more good news with Harry Kane coming back from injury.

“Kane will be even closer to full fitness after another week of training and it is safe to say that goals are something that this Spurs team does not lack.”

Spurs go into the game knowing that recent history is more than on their side having won all four of their last meetings with a four-goal margin.

Football Insider verdict

Spurs have been in good form and with Kane back in the starting line-up, they should really breeze past Stoke with no problems at all. The Potters are looking doomed to go down this season in a bottom three that no one would have predicted at the start of the campaign. Southampton and West Brom are likely to go down with the Potters, three teams that have been seen as mainstays of the Premeir League over the last decade. Spurs need to take advantage of this though as there’s nowhere near as much pressure on them.

In other Tottenham news, Spurs are in a jaw-dropping pursuit of this 6ft 2in title-chaser as their traditional transfer policy is scrapped.
