Tottenham Hotspur will put their unbeaten run in the Premier League so far on the line as they gear up to face a West Bromwich outfit who have troubled them in the past. The match will be played at Hawthornes and despite Spurs bullying Manchester City into submission in their last match, there will be no guarantees for Mauricio Pochettino on Saturday.
West Brom sit in the 9th place and have performed as expected. But they might rue missing out on a couple of more points given the nature of the opposition they have faced so far. But Tony Pulis is slowly gettin his act together and will be prepared to build a wall in front of his goal to prevent Spurs from scoring today.
WEST BROMWICH ALBION
West Brom head coach Tony Pulis will give midfielder Darren Fletcher a fitness test after he picked up a dead leg playing for Scotland.
Salomon Rondon only returned from international duty with Venezuela on Thursday so will also be assessed.
Tottenham midfielder Mousa Dembele is struggling with a foot problem he picked up during training and is a doubt.
Striker Harry Kane remains sidelined with an ankle injury.
WEST BROMWICH ALBION (4-1-4-1)
Foster; Dawson, McAuley, Evans, Galloway; Yacob; Fletcher, Chadli, Phillips, McClean; Rondon
TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR (4-2-3-1)
Lloris; Walker, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Rose; Wanyama, Alli; Son, Eriksen, Lamela; Janssen
WEST BROMWICH ALBION
The former Tottenham man has settled in well at the Hawthorns and is looking like a vital cog in the Baggies machinery, something he missed being at Spurs. He has already scored 3 goals in 4 games for them which equal his tally in the last 30 games for the Lillywhites. With Rondon a slight doubt for the game, Pulis will be looking at his new star man to deliver the goods today.
SON HEUNG- MIN
The forgotten man has grabbed the unlikely opportunity provided to him after Harry Kan’s injury and is now looking undroppable from the squad. This rapid transformation is down to the 5 goals he has scored along with the 2 assists provided since the start of the season. The ever-smiling assassin will be more than prepared to gun down the Baggies in their home ground but they will know that Pulis will set up his team to frustrate them and goals have to be conjured with patience.
WEST BROMWICH ALBION- 9/2
TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR- 8/11
