This afternoon Spurs return to action as Mauricio Pochettino’s side face West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns. The lads will be looking to continue their excellent form of late in to today’s game after a two week international break. However, today’s game will be one of our toughest away games of the season against Tony Pulis’s incredibly well structured and defensive side. It is vital that we take an early lead against the Baggies as in doing so we can catch West Brom on the break and take control of the game. West Brom’s striker and joint top scorer Salomon Rondón is a doubt whilst the Spurs players will be reunited against inform former team mate Nacer Chadli who will as we know cause a constant goal threat. In addition West Brom’s winger James McClean is also a player to watch, the Irish man scored in this fixture last season and McClean recently netted a brace on international duty. Moussa Dembele is a doubt for Spurs with a foot injury whilst Harry Kane is again sidelined through injury. COYS⚽️
My predicted lineup: (4-2-3-1) Lloris, Walker, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Rose, Dier, Wanyama, Sissoko, Alli, Son, Janssen.
My predicted scoreline: 2-0 Spurs courtesy of goals from Sissoko and Son.
One to watch: Former Spurs man Nacer Chadli.
