Spurs’ Under 18 side face West Brom at Hotspur Way on Saturday (the game starts at 12:00pm), in a Premier League South fixture. Stuart Lewis’ side were unlucky to lose 3-2 to Chelsea in their most recent league game, but that was in my opinion a good performance from Spurs. Spurs won 6-1 against West Brom in the fourth round of the FA Youth Cup, earlier on this season. However, Spurs lost 4-3 to West Brom in the reverse league fixture last October, a game well remembered for a spectacular goal that was scored by Jamie Donley. West Brom are in 11th place in the Premier League South, two places and four points behind Spurs. They are a good team with talented players, and I was impressed by their top scorer this season (Reyes Cleary) in the FA Youth Cup game at Hotspur Way earlier this season. This will be another good game of football, but it is one that Spurs will be hoping to win, as they will look to finish the season well. I would like to wish the Spurs side all the very best of luck for the game.
My predicted lineup: (4-2-3-1) Hayton, Bryan-Waugh, Dorrington, Sayers (c), Hackett, Abbott, Davies, McKnight, Kyerematen, Heaps, Williams.
Subs from: Maguire, Andiyapan, Hall, Bloxham, Owen.
Previous meeting: Spurs 6-1.
My score prediction: Spurs 2-1.
My one to watch: Reyes Cleary. The West Brom forward impressed with his movement off the ball in the FA Youth Cup tie against Spurs earlier this year. Cleary has scored 16 goals and provided two assists from 11 Premier League South appearances this season. He is also a regular for the West Brom Under 23 side.
