According to the BBC's Chris Sutton, Tottenham will trounce Nottingham Forest today by four goals to one. That's not all, however, as he also predicts a massive performance from one player in particular.

"Like I do most weeks, I am backing Tottenham to click here. I am going to make Son Heung-min captain of my Fantasy team this weekend, because I am expecting a hat-trick from him, and a big win for Spurs," Sutton noted in the latest edition of the columnist's weekly score predictions.

Tottenham's captain and leading goalscorer this season has three goals and two assists in his last five appearances, troubling defenses for 87 minutes or more in each of those fixtures.

The last time Tottenham faced The Reds, they notched a 2-0 win, with goals from Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski. With the Brazilian set to miss the upcoming match, Son will likely look to take up the striker role once again.

With Aston Villa's 3-3 draw to Brentford yesterday, Tottenham are poised to move past their top-four rivals on goal differential if they can find a win today; And, with two games in hand, a win next week will see them climb three points clear of The Villains.

Hopefully, Son's performance will live up to Sutton's prediction, as Ange and co. will need him now more than ever.

Any game could very well make or break how Tottenham finish the campaign, especially considering the string of tough fixtures that await the North London club at the end of the road.
