Venue: White Hart Lane
Date: Saturday 14 January KO: 12:30pm
Live: Sky Sports 1
Head2Heads: 1-1, 1-1, 1-1, 3-0 Spurs, 1-0 West Brom.
Referee: Anthony Taylor.
This afternoon Spurs face West Brom in a 12:30pm kick off at the Lane, Pochettino’s side have been in great form of late playing some great football, as well as they were during their peak last season. We’ve won our last six matches in all competitions and the squad are brimming with confidence. However, we face West Brom who have become a bit of a bogey team to us over the past few seasons, we’ve only beaten the Baggies once in our last five meetings, and our last three matches have all ended in 1-1 draws. I think West Brom are one of the most structured sides in the league and also one of the most underrated. There doing well in the league this season and are going to be very tough to break down, expect a long game. COYS⚽️
