This one surprises me!
Lawro has predicted a 1-1 between Villa and Spurs on www.bbc.co.uk/sport
He reasons, "What Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert needs is a reaction from his players after the 8-0 loss at Chelsea. That doesn't mean they have to win but they need to show a reaction because they looked like Rag, Tag and Bobtail at Stamford Bridge. That's the risk you run sometimes when you play a load of young players and Lambert knows that."
He also says that young players bounce back quickly and says the Villa fans understand what Lambert is trying to do.
"As long as they stay in the league that is all that matters."
On Spurs... ah, you can read about Spurs here... ! www.bbc.co.uk/sport
Mystic Mug said a draw v Chelsea trying to be positive and is now in a mood (Lawro a Chelsea win)
Muggy says 2-1 to Spurs or 3-0 if they are on an up day.
