Mark Lawrenson predicts Tottenham v Wycombe
By Amir Mir
Mark Lawrenson has predicted an easy win for Tottenham in their FA Cup fourth round clash against Wycombe on Saturday afternoon.
BBC Sports pundit Lawrenson has backed the Premier League side to avoid an upset and beat the League Two outfit 2-0 at White Hart Lane.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side will be looking to make their mark in this competition and win their first trophy under the stewardship of the highly-rated Argentinian.
Last season, he helped the London-based club to a Champions League spot and now for the second consecutive campaign, they are fighting for the Premier League title.
However, despite the big difference in league positions, Gareth Ainsworth’s side will be a tough nut to crack because they have not been beaten in their last 16 games in all competitions.

Ahead of the match, former Liverpool defender Lawrenson praised the visitors but expects an easy encounter.
“This is a great money-spinning tie for Wycombe,” Lawrenson told the BBC Sports website. “I think we can expect a lot of Tottenham changes – but this is a home win all day.”
The Chairboys are fifth in League Two chasing promotion this term, while Spurs are third in England’s top flight.
In the previous round, Pochettino rested some of his big players as they beat Championship outfit Aston Villa in comfortable fashion.
The likes of Harry Kane, Kyle Walker, Danny Rose and Christian Eriksen were rested, while Dele Alli came off the bench to help his side progress through to this round.
