Spurs thumped the Toffees 6-2 at Goodison Park in December last yr and BBC soccer educated Designate Lawrenson fears Silva would possibly perchance properly moreover rapidly be dealing with one different setback.
“Everton purchased battered on this fixture last time they usually possess received now not overwhelmed Spurs at house since 2012,” Lawrenson acknowledged. “I do not look that chase ending this weekend.
“I appropriate do not look who’s going to ranking the targets for them to beat a Tottenham crew which can be first fee defensively.”
Lawro is making predictions for all 380 top-flight fits this season, in opposition to a fluctuate of friends.
He’ll achieve out his opponent for this weekend’s video video games on Friday.

Bournemouth v Man Utd (12: 30 GMT)
Bournemouth are having reasonably little little bit of a goal drought, and haven’t discovered the on-line in any of their previous three fits.
The Cherries should now not on a corrupt chase of outcomes – they possess received most attention-grabbing misplaced one in all their previous 5 league video video games – nonetheless it absolutely is now not cherish them to be missing in assault.
In distinction, Manchester United are making an are attempting dangerous once more, and possess moreover remembered the approach to rep on the boulevard – after going almost eight months with out an away rep in any opponents, they now possess three in a row.
Anthony Martial is extremely up and down as a participant – he shall be illustrious or insignificant in a recreation – nonetheless he has made a distinction since returning to steer United’s assault, they usually’re fleshy of self perception on the second.
Lawro’s prediction: 1-2
Arsenal v Wolves
Wolves most attention-grabbing levelled leisurely on in last weekend’s draw at Newcastle nonetheless they performed properly sufficient to own obtained that recreation and had an appropriate leisurely chance to make a choice the elements too.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s aspect went out of the Carabao Cup at As ton Villa on Wednesday night nonetheless, throughout the Premier League, they’re on a handy five-game unbeaten chase and their depressing provoke to the season is positively throughout the abet of them.
Arsenal possess purchased some elements, together with what to hold out with Granit Xhaka after his tumble-out with the Gunners followers, nonetheless their house create is now not normally one in all them.
That is why it become as quickly as particularly stunning that they let a 2-Zero lead hump at house to Crystal Palace last week. We all know they possess received defensive instability nonetheless we look it much less normally at Emirates Stadium than in different areas.
Lawro’s prediction: 2-0
Aston Villa v Liverpool
Villa performed all attractive in opposition to Manchester Metropolis last week, nonetheless restful ended up being overwhelmed 3-0.
I appropriate possess a way we’d be asserting the identical issues about their effectivity in opposition to Liverpool after the ultimate whistle on Saturday, and with a the identical last consequence too.
If Jack Grealish is abet from a calf break then that may serve Dean Smith’s aspect, nonetheless as Liverpool possess proven in opposition to Manchester United and Tottenham in up to date weeks, they seem to be a participating aspect to survey off.
Grealish discovered it tough to invent an attacking have an effect on in opposition to Manchester Metropolis last weekend, and it will possibly perchance moreover perchance be the equivalent fantasy proper right here.
Nonetheless he has gone from being somebody with a great deal of promise to in fact being a high participant. He has matured too and I am now not surprised there would possibly perchance be a great deal of concentrate on him getting an England name-up.
I most attention-grabbing look a Liverpool rep on Saturday, although.
The Reds deserved their victory over Tottenham last weekend, and it almost felt inevitable even after they had been throughout the abet of.
They wore Spurs down throughout the tip, they usually appropriate appear to own this notion that they’re going to attain from any station and rescue a consequence.
Lawro’s prediction: 0-2
Brighton v Norwich
Norwich are almost in freefall. Their break catastrophe is easing a small, nonetheless even Teemu Pukki has now not scored for a whereas.
The Canaries purchased a 0-Zero attract opposition to Bournemouth to pause a corrupt chase of defeats, nonetheless then they had been fortunate they did not secure taken apart by Manchester United at Carrow Avenue.
Brighton will definitely admire their prospects by distinction Norwich crew – sure, their rep over Everton become as quickly as assisted by VAR, nonetheless they seem to be a crew who invent a great deal of prospects.
The Seagulls decide a few dangers, and play out from the abet. They will lose a few video video games taking half in that method, nonetheless their followers are blissful as a result of they’re going to rep a few too.
Lawro’s prediction: 2-1
Man Metropolis v Southampton
I did not know Ralph Hasenhuttl’s assistant, Danny Rohl, had left for a place with Bayern Munich over the summer season.
It shall be a twist of future that Saints’ create has dropped away so badly since he left – nonetheless it absolutely aren’t.
Their 9-Zero defeat at house to Leicester methodology the stress is on Hasenhuttl to show issues spherical and his aspect’s defence must be his priority.
In full, Saints possess conceded 17 targets of their previous 4 video video games, which is never going to rep them any prizes. A second spin backwards and forwards to Etihad Stadium throughout the place of 4 days would now not serve important, each.
Pep Guardiola will decide a stronger crew this time, and I deem Manchester Metropolis will rep by an even bigger margin than their 3-1 victory throughout the Carabao Cup in midweek.
Lawro’s prediction: 4-0
Sheff Utd v Burnley
You possibly can moreover by no means accuse each of those teams of missing effort or depth, and I deem this could show to be a cracking contest.
Sheffield United had been depressing early on of their draw with West Ham last week, nonetheless they grew to turn out to be it spherical after the break and I am sure Chris Wilder’s half of-time crew discuss will possess had one factor to hold out with it.
Burnley had been outplayed by Chelsea last day out, nonetheless you perceive you’ll moreover be going to secure a response from Burnley after a depressing effectivity cherish that.
The Blades’ house file is if truth be told now not that vast – they possess received misplaced three of their 5 league video video games at Bramall Lane to this degree this season – and I really like the Clarets to edge this one.
Lawro’s prediction: 1-2
West Ham v Newcastle
Applicable once I believed West Ham had been about to push on, they began a chase that has launched most attention-grabbing two elements from their previous 4 fits.
Nonetheless whereas the Hammers are restful horribly inconsistent, on the very least we all know what to foretell from Newcastle – they’re going to attain to London Stadium and examine cross-take a have a look at to park the bus.
Steve Bruce’s aspect can’t if truth be told perform the remaining, as a result of they supply such small danger going ahead – which is why I am backing West Ham, no matter their depressing create.
Lawro’s prediction: 2-1
Watford v Chelsea (17: 30 GMT)
Watford possess drawn a lot simply recently and should now not conceding many targets on the second, nonetheless it absolutely is a big quiz for them to move from stopping teams taking half in to beating them, particularly in opposition to an appropriate aspect equal to Chelsea.
I am sure the Hornets will secure their first rep of the season rapidly, nonetheless I very important doubt they’re going to secure it this weekend.
Lawro’s prediction: 1-2
Crystal Palace v Leicester (14: 00 GMT)
Leicester are totally flying on the second.
Each time I look them, they survey appropriate – they seem to be a extremely environment friendly aspect with power, sprint and width, and all individuals is acutely aware of their jobs.
Crystal Palace haven’t made reasonably one in all these spectacular provoke nonetheless moreover they’re throughout the tip six and taking half in properly too, they usually possess received a great deal of spirit of their aspect – they confirmed that with their fightback to draw with Arsenal last weekend.
The style I’d perchance properly moreover query this recreation to move will possess to swimsuit the Eagles – Roy Hodgson’s aspect should now not as appropriate after they wish to energy issues, nonetheless Leicester will attain and assault them.
Palace are properly organised and cherish to sit down down deep and break ahead. I deem they’re going to secure some pleasure from doing that on Sunday.
Lawro’s prediction: 1-1
Everton v Tottenham (16: 30 GMT)
Tottenham did not perform very important injurious once I noticed them lose 2-1 to Liverpool at Anfield last Sunday.
If Son Heung-min had scored as a alternative of hitting the bar as Spurs led 1-Zero on the provoke of the second half of, the ultimate consequence would possibly perchance properly moreover possess been various – nonetheless it’s advisable make a choice veil of the sequence of saves Paulo Gazzaniga had made to deny the Reds by that degree.
Maintaining Everton out is now not one in all these participating project and though Spurs haven’t been at their most attention-grabbing simply recently, I restful deem they wish to possess too important for the Toffees.
The connect does that spin away under-tension Everton boss Marco Silva? I do now not know.
His speedy future will depend on the outlook of the membership’s homeowners, nonetheless if Everton do not rep this recreation, I would convey that Silva positively can’t afford to lose his subsequent one, which is away at Southampton.
Lawro’s prediction: 0-2
Lawro become as quickly as speaking to BBC Sport’s Chris Bevan
How did Lawro perform last week?
Remaining weekend, Lawro purchased two appropriate outcomes, with no exact rankings, out of 10 fits for a crammed with 20 elements – his worst tally of the season to this degree.
