Premier League: West Bromwich Albion vs Tottenham preview

Tottenham will be looking to extend their Premier League winning streak to five games when they visit West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns on Saturday. Last season both league matches between these two sides ended in 1-1 draws and the season before that both sides won away from home. West Bromwich Albion have not beaten Tottenham at home since 2008, six matches have been played since then at The Hawthorns and the Spurs won three of them.

West Brom are enjoying a decent start to the season, they are currently ninth in the league table after having recorded 2 wins, 3 draws and 2 defeats. They have never lost by more than one goal this season, never conceded more than two goals in a league match and they have also gone unbeaten in the last three Premier League games. Chris Brunt is the only fitness worry for manager Tony Pulis, the midfielder is not yet ready to return to the pitch after having recovered from an injury.

Tottenham recorded a prestigious 2-0 victory over league leaders Manchester City, a result that gives them the confidence they needed for a possible title chase this season. The Spurs are the only unbeaten team in the Premier League after seven matches of the season, their only defeat so far was in the Champions League against Monaco. Harry Kane is still out of contention due to an ankle injury, while Moussa Dembele could return to the squad but might have to settle for a place on the bench.

Probable line-ups:

West Brom: Foster - Dawson, McAuley, Evans, Nyom - Fletcher, Yacob - Phillips, Chadli, McClean - Rondon

Tottenham: Lloris - Walker, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Rose - Wanyama - Sissoko, Eriksen, Alli, Lamela - Son Heung-Min

My prediction: Tottenham to win 1-0.

Here are the odds for the match at Bet365:

West Brom win - 5.50
Draw - 3.80
Tottenham win - 1.73
