Spurs’ Under 18 side will face West Bromwich Albion, tomorrow afternoon (the game starts at 13:00pm on Friday), at Hotspur Way, in the fourth round of the FA Youth Cup. Spurs defeated Ipswich Town to reach round four of the prestigious competition. West Brom actually beat Spurs 5-0 in the fifth round of this competition, last season, and have already beaten Spurs 4-3 in the league already during the 2021/22 season. This will be a very tough game for Spurs, who will already know how difficult West Brom can be to play against at this level, although Spurs are currently four points and three places above them in the Premier League South table. I would like to wish Spurs all the very best of luck for the game on Friday. If they do progress past West Brom, then they will face Wolverhampton Wanderers in the fifth round of the competition.
My predicted lineup: (4-2-3-1) Gunter, Bryan-Waugh, Dorrington, Sayers, Hackett, Willhoft-King, Kyerematen, McKnight, Devine (c), Amo-Ameyaw, Williams.
Subs from: Hayton, Andiyapan, Abbott, Linton, Davies, Bloxham, Donley.
Previous meeting: Spurs 3-4.
My score prediction: Spurs 3-2.
My one to watch: Reyes Cleary. The forward (17) has been in excellent form for West Brom, at Academy level this season. Cleary has scored seven Premie League 2 goals from 11 appearances for West Brom’s Under 23 side this season, plus an additional ten league goals for the club’s Under 18 side.
