Dembele vs Sandro And Other Key Battles That Will Decide Tottenham’s Game vs West Bromwich Albion

Published

on

The race for the Premier League title is hitting its final stretch and Tottenham actually have a decent chance thanks to their win over Stoke City and Leicester’s draw against West Ham. Spurs have now an easier game with West Brom coming to face them at the Lane and this should be an easy three points for Tottenham.

West Brom have gone off the boil and have picked up just one point from their last five games. The side were woeful in their last game against Arsenal and with the attack ranked 19th in the league, scoring goals has been a problem for tony Pulis’ side.

Tottenham on the other hand are on fire and with many Spurs players making the PFA team of the season, they will want to show that the list isn’t a fluke and a win over West Brom could give them the edge needed for the final games of the season.

Pulis will set his team out to defend and ensure that Tottenham don’t have it all easy. We look ahead to the game and list the three key battles from the game.

Mousa Dembele vs. Sandro

Mousa Dembele

A battle of the two midfielders who both have had contrasting fortunes at Tottenham. While Mousa Dembele has picked up the slack and become the most important player in the midfield for the London side, Sandro left Tottenham but he turned his career somewhat around at West Bromwich Albion.

Dembele is the heartbeat of the team and will be looking to be the driving force in the game and could be stopped by the 27-year-old Brazilian. Sandro will have a point to prove to his old-side but will it end up costing Tottenham all the points?

Toby Alderweireld vs. Salomon Rondon

Toby Alderweireld has been one of the most impressive defenders this season and well have gotten better than his time with Southampton last season. His partnership with Jan Vertonghen is back to its best as the other Belgian is fit to play games.

The Tottenham centre-back pairing might have a tough task at hand with Rondon. The West Brom striker has done pretty well with eight goals this season and his physicality would be something that Tony Pulis will count on. Alderweireld and Vertonghen will have a tough time dealing with him but if the South American gets his act right, he could be the one celebrating a goal.

Danny Rose vs. Stephane Sessegnon

Rose

This would be a battle to keep an eye out for. Two of the fastest players in the Premier League go head to head. Danny Rose has been excellent for Tottenham at left-back and should be in the England squad for the Euros while Sessegnon hasn’t had the greatest season but on his day he can be a real pain for any defender.

Sessegnon is a tricky customer to deal with and his pace could trouble the best but Rose is no slouch and this battle could be incredible as two speedsters try to outdo each other.
