Premier League: Tottenham vs West Bromwich Albion preview


West Bromwich Albion will try to avoid their fifth consecutive defeat, while Tottenham will try to bounce back after last weekend's disappointment when the two sides meet at Wembley Stadium on Saturday. Last season the Spurs beat the Baggies 4-0 at White Hart Lane, while the reverse fixture ended 1-1. That was the first home victory in five matches for Tottenham against West Brom, and the overall record of the last six meetings shows just two victories for the Spurs and one for the Baggies.

Tottenham lost the North London Derby last weekend, Arsenal defeated them 2-0 and outplayed them most of the match. The Spurs recovered with a 2-1 victory at Dortmund in the Champions League, making sure they will finish at the top of Group H ahead of mighty Real Madrid. However, they are eleven points behind leaders Manchester City, so any title hopes might fade if they fail to beat West Brom on Saturday. Victor Wanyama and Toby Alderweireld remain sidelined with injuries, while Erik Lamela is getting closer to his return after having played for the Under-23 side this week.

West Brom recorded their fourth consecutive defeat last weekend, 4-0 at home at the hands of defending champions Chelsea, and manager Tony Pulis got sacked after the match. The Baggies are just one point above the relegation zone after having won just two of their twelve Premier League matches so far this season. James Morrison, Craig Dawson and Nacer Chadli remain injured, while caretaker manager Gary Megson will probably try to change a thing or two in the starting line-up and formation.

Probable line-ups:

Tottenham: Lloris - Sanchez, Dier, Vertonghen - Trippier, Winks, Alli, Davies - Eriksen - Son Heung-Min, Kane

West Brom: Foster - Nyom, McAuley, Hegazi, Evans - Krychowiak, Barry, Livermore - Phillips, Rodriguez, Brunt

My prediction: Tottenham to win 1-0.

Here are the odds for the match at Bet365:

Tottenham win - 1.25
Draw - 6.00
West Brom win - 16.00

    Spurs had all the control over the ball in that game but after conceding first they were unable to clinch itin the end.
    After the great start of the season it's obvious their players are overload of games, some injuries helping that of course but I think there's just not enough quality on the bench for them and I think it would be tough to even keep their top four spot this season.
