Spurs’ Under 18 side face West Bromwich Albion on Saturday (the game starts at 12:00pm at Hotspur Way), in their first home Under 18 Premier League South fixture of the season. Stuart Lewis’ side impressively won 1-0 away to Leicester City on the opening day of the Premier League South season. Last season they won two and lost one of their fixtures against West Brom, at this level. This included an impressive 6-1 win over them at Hotspur Way, in the fourth round of the 2021/22 FA Youth Cup. Last season West Brom finished in tenth place in the Premier League South, two points behind Spurs in ninth place. This will be an interesting game, and I’m looking forward to covering the match, especially as I was unable to go to the opening game of the season against Leicester City, last Saturday. I would like to wish Spurs all the very best of luck for the match.
My predicted lineup: (4-2-3-1) Gunter (c), Abbott, Dorrington, Andiyapan, Linton, Hall, Heaps, McKnight, Kyerematen, Bloxham, Williams.
Subs from: Krasniqi, Bryan-Waugh, Akhamrich, Ajayi, Olusesi.
Previous meeting: Spurs 2-1.
My score prediction: Spurs 3-1.
My one to watch: Fenton Heard (17). The second year scholar and West Bromwich Albion player scored five goals and provided six assists last season for the West Bromwich Albion Under 18 side, in the Premier League South.
