West-Brom-Albion--The-Hawthorns

Premier League football returns from the international break this weekend and Tottenham will be looking to continue their excellent form when they take on West Brom at the Hawthorns on Saturday afternoon.

Spurs enhanced their reputation as title contenders with an impressive 2-0 victory over Manchester City before the international break with goals from Alexandre Kalarov [O.G] and Dele Alli securing the three points.

The victory saw second-placed Spurs cut the gap on leaders City to just a single point so another win tomorrow will ensure Mauricio Pochettino’s men keep the pressure on their rivals.

West Brom head in to the game in decent form as they sit ninth in the Premier League table having taken nine points from their opening seven games and another win tomorrow would make it their best start since 2012.

Team news

Spurs will continue to be without star striker Harry Kane as he is still nursing an ankle ligament injury so Heung-min Son could once again start up front ahead of Vincent Janssen.

Pochettino has confirmed that Mousa Dembele has been ruled out after aggravating a foot injury but Eric Dier is expected to get a recall to the starting eleven after being a substitute last time out.

West Brom will hand a late fitness test to striker Salomon Rondon after he returned late from international duty while Darren Fletcher is also a minor doubt with a dead leg.

Nacer Chadli will be hoping to continue his excellent early-season form with West Brom against his old club.

Likely Line-Ups

Predicted Score

West Brom 1-2 Tottenham: West Brom look a far more dangerous side with Chadli in the team but I think Spurs are going to edge this one. The north Londoners were excellent against City before the international break and if they can reproduce that kind of form, they’ll take home the three points.

    great to catch up with chadli again – apart from that WBA very ordinary team. chadli’s goal will just be a consolation – 4-1 to spurs with lamella, toby and son on scoresheet.
