The Hawthorns will host the encounter between West Bromwich Albion and Tottenham Hotspur for Sunday’s midday kickoff.
Slaven Bilic’s side are looking to bounce back from Monday’s disappointing loss to Fulham with a positive result against Jose Mourinho’s men. The Baggies will be targeting their first win of the season as they sit in 18th place on the league table.
Mourinho and his charges come to the Hawthorns on the back of 18 goals in their first seven games. Spurs have won two games on the bounce after their capitulation against West Ham United, drawing 3-3 after taking a 3-0 lead early in the game.
The Baggies have no new injury concerns with Sam Field and Hal Robson-Kanu still ruled out of this game.
For Spurs, Erik Lamela is ruled out of this game while Sergio Regulion and Serge Aurier are doubts with illness and a knock respectively.
PLAYERS TO WATCH
Harry Kane and Son-Heung Min are expected to combine again on Sunday and that would bring them level with David Silva and Sergio Aguero on 29 goals created and finished off by each other
Connor Gallagher is gradually bedding in at West Brom and his high press can be key in stifling Spurs passing from the back. Against Fulham, he pressed a lot and rushed players who couldn’t deal with his intensity. Bilic will want more of the same from the Chelsea loanee and would hope that his teammates pick some positives and take the game to Spurs on Sunday
Spurs come into this game with hopes of a third consecutive Premier League and more of the same from Son and Kane. The partnership between the two has yielded devastating effects in seven games this season. Spurs have scored 18 goals already this season and 14 of those goals have been netted by Harry Kane and Son-Heung Min. The clash at the Hawthorns will give Spurs a chance to include their record of three wins from their last eight visits to the ground.
For West Brom, will look to improve in front of goal after the loss to Fulham on matchday seven. The Baggies have scored only six goals all season but have shown in some games that they can score. Slaven Bilic will be hoping that his players can turn up and make a statement against an in-form Spurs team.
A win for West Bromwich will definitely take them out of the relegation zone and for Spurs a win would almost definitely raise the debate about their title credentials.
