A bold, daring ‘Audere Est Facere’ feeling Tottenham head to the midlands on Saturday to face a stumbling West Brom side who are desperately in need of 3 points to appease the fans, who are questioning the ever-surviving Tony Pulis. Seems easy enough? This is Tottenham Hotspur, remember. 

Tale of the Tape

The last six between the sides have been evenly matched, with both sides winning one a piece, as well as four draws. It would be fair to say Albion have been somewhat a bogey side for Spurs, as well as Craig Dawson’s late equaliser at The Lane last year forming a penultimate nail in our title challenges coffin.

 Spurs are in simply sensational form at the moment, having won our last four in the league, remaining now as the only side in the Premier League yet to be beaten, after we ended Manchester City’s winning streak with a scintillating White Hart Lane performance last time out. Spurs have only lost one game all season in all competitions.

West Brom on the other hand have been nowhere near their exceptionally organised and disciplined best so far this term. Having only won two of their first seven, one of which was against a West Ham side surely bound for relegation, the Albion fans are dissatisfied with Pulis’ lack of expansive and exciting football. The same can absolutely not be said for Tottenham.

Team News:

Tottenham Hotspur will assess Mousa Dembele before kick-off, other than that there are no new injury concerns for Tottenham. Harry Kane is set to return to training next week following his ankle ligament injury, but Mauricio Pochettino is reluctant to place a time frame on the Spurs marksman’s return.

West Brom have a fully fit squad at the moment, and Nacer Chadli will be relishing the opportunity to get one over on his old teammates from White Hart Lane.

Predicted West Bromwich Albion XI: 

Foster; Dawson, McAuley, Evans, Nyom, Yacob, Fletcher, Phillips, Chadli, McClean; Rondon

Predicted Tottenham Hotspur XI: 

Lloris, Walker, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Rose, Wanyama, Dier, Eriksen, Dele, Lamela, Son

Prediction: West Bromwich Albion 0-2 Tottenham Hotspur
