Tottenham vs West Brom predictions & preview
Tottenham managed to put North London derby disappoint behind them in midweek as they defeated Dortmund to top Champions League Group H.
Having lost last time out in the league, Spurs cannot afford to lose any more ground if their ambitions remain on winning the title.
They currently trail league leaders Manchester City by 12 points.
Following a heavy defeat at the hands of Chelsea last Saturday, West Brom relinquished Tony Pulis of his duties.
In his place, for now, steps in Gary Megson, who has the tricky task of overcoming a Spurs side who are back full of confidence.
Tottenham’s fortunes at Wembley have also begun to pick up, making this an unideal start to life as caretaker head coach.
Question marks have been raised over the fitness levels of both Harry Kane and Dele Alli.
The pair have recently overcome injuries, both looking far from their dazzling best on their returns.
Kane particularly appears to be playing with a sense of trepidation, suggesting he is not 100 percent.
At the Emirates, Spurs’ deadly duo were hoisted off after 75 minutes, as they both failed to make an impact.
Kane and Dele both also started at the Westfalenstadion, despite Spurs already having qualified.
Mauricio Pochetino’s gamble paid off, however, as they both played a big part in Tottenham’s two goals.
The Argentine, therefore, may opt to hand either a rest, with the likes of Heung-min Son and Fernando Llorente at his disposal.
Tottenham must be wary of the usual high a change of scenery in the dugout brings about.
Along with this being West Brom’s trip to Wembley, this should be a strong test for Spurs.
The players at West Brom will know Gary Megson well, having been Pulis’ assistant at the Hawthorns.
It is more than likely that Saturday will, therefore, bring about a spirited performance by the Baggies.
