Lawro's opponents for this weekend's Premier League fixtures are Tom Meighan and Serge Pizzorno from indie rock band Kasabian.

Meighan and Pizzorno are fans of Leicester City, their local team, and the band played at the Foxes' title-winning parade last season.

See what they've predicted here.

'I think I'm doing a good job'

West Ham 1-0 Tottenham

There have been rumours that Slaven Bilic's job is on the line after they have struggled to match the seventh-placed finish in his debut season.

When asked if this win helps secure his future, the Croat said: "I don't care. When my team is playing like this I'm happy. 

"I think I'm doing a good job. I don't like to moan but we have had many obstacles during this season which are quite rare in football."

Patrick Green: If this is Spurs' golden era, promising so much but winning nowt, then what's the difference between coming second and coming eighth?

More from Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino, on his side's title chances: "It will be difficult. With three games to play. You have to try to give your best. Now we move forward.

"It is not over. It is true that it will be difficult. Now we have to wait but thinking that it will be difficult to catch Chelsea."

'Maybe we were a bit desperate'

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino was asked if it was poor defending for the goal.

"I agree. It is true we conceded a goal when you are fighting for a big thing you normally do not concede.

"We show a little bit that we were desperate to arrive in the box. We missed a little in the way to try and score, we played long balls, things we never made on the pitch. Maybe we were a little desperate."

West Ham 1-0 Tottenham

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino, speaking to BBC Sport: "It is true we deserved more during the game but I felt it was difficult to show more of our game. 

"We started the second half a little bit sloppy, we conceded in the space and the way we conceded the goal in this type of football, when you are fighting for the big things, you feel disappointed.

"We tried, it was difficult, the performance was not the best."

What needs to happen now for Spurs to win the league? 

Chelsea would have to lose two of their last four games - and drop points in a third, with Spurs needing to win their last three matches.

Suraj Nair: Two years consecutively, Spurs have their title dreams come to an end with a London derby.   

Rachel T: Best Spurs run of wins in my lifetime, I'm not going to knock them! Onwards and upwards.   

'After today, it's nearly impossible'

Spurs defender Eric Dier to Sky Sports: "It was already going to be hard and now it's even harder. It’s disappointing. We were on a fantastic run. 

"They made it very hard for us, they played very deep and we didn't create enough chances.

"We managed to bring it back to four points but after today, it's nearly impossible, but we will give it everything for the last three games."

'We're a good team but haven't always shown it'

West Ham captain Mark Noble to BBC Sport: "What a game to be safe in. I said beforehand we needed to be 100% and that's what we got.

"Spurs are a top team, I think they'll be the team to beat in a few years. But we were magnificent tonight. 

"We knew what we had to do. They had nine wins in a row, you have to play really well. I thought we got what we deserved.

"I'm so proud of the boys. Everyone dug in and supported each other. We've had a lot of stick this year, a lot of it warranted. We're a good team, but we haven't always shown it.

"Now we're safe, if we get some more points we can finish only one or two places below where we were last year.

"Slaven Bilic has my full backing. He's a great man."

West Ham are 100% safe now as a result of their win.

Chelsea can win title in seven days

PL table
.

Chelsea can actually win the league title next Friday, before Spurs even play again.

If Antonio Conte's Blues beat Middlesbrough on Monday and win at West Brom on Friday, it's party time for the Stamford Bridge side.

You wouldn't bet against either of those results really, would you?

'No Spurs players put in a performance'

West Ham 1-0 Tottenham

Jermaine Jenas

Former England midfielder on BBC Radio 5 live

Football can be very simple sometimes. You have 11 players on the pitch and the team that has more of those 11 turn up on the pitch usually wins. For West Ham all 11 players turned up. For Tottenham, I could not pick one player who put in a performance.

FULL-TIME

West Ham 1-0 Tottenham

THE FINAL WHISTLE GOES.

And that is surely that for the 2016-17 Premier League title race. 

Spurs' nine-game winning run comes to an end and Chelsea are well clear at the top.

West Ham 1-0 Tottenham

I don't think any Spurs fans expected this type of performance tonight. Fans will be proud of what their team has done but will walk away from here tonight disappointed.

Ashley Fletcher should make it 2-0 in the last second. It's a two-on-one with Robert Snodgrass, who plays a one-two but Fletcher's shot is deflected away.

Robert Snodgrass has the ball in the corner. That's it surely.

YELLOW CARD

Now Kieran Trippier is booked for kicking down Ashley Fletcher as he was flying away. And West Ham are taking all the time in the world over this free-kick. There are 90 seconds left.

This time Kieran Trippier's cross is blocked by Aaron Cresswell.

His latest cross goes past everyone. 

SUBSTITUTION

West Ham make what feels like their fifth substitution - it's only their third. Goalscorer Manuel Lanzini comes off for Edimilson Fernandes. 

Get the ball into the mixer shout the Spurs fans (probably) but Kieran Trippier's cross is poor and it's past Dele Alli.

Laura Roth: It's OK Spurs - we haven't even hit the 88th minute yet - still time for 3 goals  

Shane Daly: West Ham have ruined the season now, the rest of the season is boring now. Last day decider is gone.   

INJURY TIME

FIVE MINUTES. Still time for Spurs - to draw. A win's out of the window now.

We're into the final minute. West Ham keeper Adrian is taking longer than six seconds with ball in hand, let me tell you.

SUBSTITUTION

Off comes Hammers' non-scoring striker Jonathan Calleri. Youngster Ashley Fletcher replaces him.

West Ham keeper Adrian kicks the ball all the way through to opposite number Hugo Lloris, who plays the ball back up the pitch but it's cleared by a Hammers defender.

The beautiful game.

Surely about time some Spurs defenders start playing as strikers, Gerard Pique/Robert Huth/Gary Doherty-style.

Christian Eriksen fizzes one just over for Spurs.

Tick tock. Tick tock.

Craig Kirkham: It's OK Spurs fans there's no way West Ham can win. Just ask SAM  

SUBSTITUTION

West Ham make a change, as Andre Ayew is replaced by Robert Snodgrass, who hasn't really gotten going since his move from Hull.

Spurs tempers are starting to flare. Not to the same extent as they did last season against Chelsea in the game where their league dream ended. But it's bubbling (no West Ham pun intended).

Nine minutes to go. Nine minutes for Spurs to save their title chances.

This has probably been one of the worse performances this season by Tottenham in terms of their ability to open teams up. They need to find something big in the final 10 minutes.

That was brilliant from Lloris. Calleri read the situation perfectly but Lloris read the situation, went to the near post and produced a strong hand.

Toby Alderweireld tries to play the ball out from the back, really crazy defending, Jonathan Calleri steals the ball and should score from six yards but his effort is saved by Hugo Lloris.

Calleri really should have scored. Huge let-off for Spurs.

West Ham right-back Sam Byram dances past a couple of defenders like he's Dani Alves but then crosses like he's *insert rubbish player from your club*.
