West Brom v Tottenham Betting Preview
Venue: The Hawthorns
Darren Moore’s battling West Brom side host top four chasing Tottenham this weekend in what is another must win for the Baggies if they are to stay in the Premier League.
West Brom have taken eight points from a possible 12 since Darren Moore took caretaker charge of the Albion and after looking destined for the Championship, they are still in with a small chance of pulling off the ‘Great Escape’.
They still sit five points adrift of 17th placed Swansea and would need to win both of their remaining two games and rely on Swansea to slip up to save West Brom. Regardless of whether they manage it or not, Darren Moore deserves great credit for the way his side has played in the last few games, including away wins against Newcastle and Manchester United and a home draw to Liverpool.
As for the away side, Spurs are still battling to hold onto their 4th placed position and have Chelsea breathing heavily down their necks. This game represents a good chance to pick up a vital three points, which would go a long way to securing their place in the Champions League next season.
Spurs’ win over Watford last time out helped get their top 4 ambitions back on track after their defeat to City and their frustrating draw to Brighton. Spurs’ record against West Brom makes for good reading also, having been beaten by them just once in their last 16 meetings and the Baggies have not beaten Spurs at home since 2008. They will be confident of scoring goals here as well, given West Brom’s home defensive record is so poor, conceding 14 goals in their last six home games.
Gareth Barry and James Morisson are both out of the game here and Nacer Chadli remains a doubt due to his match fitness.
Spurs are without the likes of Harry Winks, Moussa Dembele and Danny Rose, whilst Keiran Trippier is hopeful of being fit enough, despite taking a knock on Monday.
Potential West Brom Starting XI: Foster; Nyom, Dawson, Hegazi, Gibbs; Phillips, Livermore, Brunt, McClean; Rodriguez; Rondon
Potential Spurs Starting XI: Lloris; Trippier, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Davies; Dier, Wanyama; Lamela, Alli, Eriksen; Kane
