Match Preview : Tottenham vs West Bromwich Albion

Tottenham’s 2-0 win over Chelsea last time out in the league means they have now won their last five and they will look to put pressure on the Blues in Saturday’s early kick off.

Victory would move them to within four points of their London rivals, but wins at home against West Brom have been few and far between in recent years.

Indeed, Spurs have won just one of their last five home league meetings with West Brom and have failed to win their last four against the Baggies at White Hart Lane.

As solid as the Baggies have been, they have won just one of their last four on the road, while Tottenham boast the second best home record in the division. Place your bet on

After seeing their title chances dented by West Brom last season, Spurs should exact revenge and improve their chances of domestic glory with a narrow win here.

Team News

Tottenham – Erik Lamela is still recovering from a hip problem and is unlikely to feature for Spurs for the welcome of West Brom.

Mauricio Pochettino, though, has no further injury concerns and could continue with a three-man defence.

However, the Argentine should ring the changes from the 2-0 win over Aston Villa, with Jan Vertonghen, Danny Rose, Kyle Walker and Harry Kane among those likely to start.

West Bromwich Albion – Saido Berahino insists he is fit to feature for West Brom, though he is way short of match fitness.

Jonny Evans and Chris Brunt are both doubts with a calf strain and a knock, respectively, and will be assessed closer to kick off.

West Brom are still awaiting international clearance so that they can play Nyom after the full-back insisted he didn’t want to represent Cameroon at AFCON 2017 and was left out of their 23-man squad.
