Just 5 points separate Spurs from Leicester. With no doubt as to how importance this game against West Brom is regarding the title race, Spurs will not look to experiment this weekend or in any of the remaining games. Pochetino knows his best 11 and the squad chemistry is set that he wouldn’t want to disrespect it and lead to any unfortunate fallings.
Hugo Lloris is the obvious choice between the sticks. Two clean sheets back to back, he will be looking to make it three.
Kyle Walker, Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen and Danny Rose will be the back line that Spurs will go with. The four players have contributed immensely in both saving goals and creating, scoring as well. Alderweireld is arguably the best CB in the league this season, was quite unfortunate he missed out on a PFA player of the year nomination.
Dembele and Dier will be the duo shielding the back four. Dier often plays as a 3rd CB when either of the two wing backs storm forward and that has been the key success point of Pochetino’s system this season.
Dells Alli scored a double last game week and will look to end the first season in the PL with a trophy. He will want to help with the goals while he also isn’t selfish and creates umpteen opportunities too. Eriksen and Lamela will be tasked in helping out Alli and his partner in crime, the strike force of Spurs – Harry Kane. Leading the race for the golden boot and being in scintillating form, he should score a couple more this game week too!
Should be a hard game against Pulis’s West Brom, but Spurs should get 3 points if they want to mount a last minute challenge for the title. I predict a 3-0 win for the North Londoners.
