Predicted Tottenham Line-up To Face West Bromwich Albion In The Premier League

Tottenham Hotspur will look to bounce back from last weekend’s disappointment, when they face off against a manager-less West Bromwich Albion, on Saturday, at the Wembley Stadium.

We were handed a 2-0 defeat by local rivals Arsenal in the North London derby last weekend, which saw us slip down to 4th place in the Premier League standings. The boys managed to put the result behind when we beat Borussia Dortmund 2-1 in the UEFA Champions League during the midweek and Mauricio Pochettino’s side will be hoping to carry the momentum from that victory to this game against the Baggies.

Team News

Toby Alderweireld remains out for Spurs with a hamstring injury and it is unlikely that he’d return before the New Year. Midfielder Victor Wanyama continues to recover from his knee injury and won’t be involved.

Here’s how Tottenham might take the field against West Brom:

Manager: Mauricio Pochettino

Formation: 3-4-2-1

Hugo Lloris (GK)

The club captain should continue between the sticks when the Baggies visit the Wembley. A sure starter, isn’t he?

Davinson Sanchez (CB)

The Colombian centre-half has been brilliant for us since arriving in the summer. A definite starter in the three-man backline.

Davinson Sanchez

Eric Dier (CB)

With Toby Alderweireld unavailable once again, Eric Dier should continue to feature in the backline.

Jan Vertonghen (CB)

The Belgian centre-half hasn’t been all that convincing in the past couple of games and will be keen on putting in a strong shift against the Baggies.

Kieran Trippier (RWB)

With Serge Aurier getting the nod for the midweek win over Dortmund, Kieran Trippier should come back to the starting XI for this Premier League match.

Harry Winks

Moussa Sissoko (CM)

The former Newcastle United man has been putting in some positive displays in recent games and might start in the middle of the park on Saturday, in place of Christian Eriksen, who’s had a couple of disappointing games.

Harry Winks (CM)

The academy graduate has developed into a key cog for the Lilywhites this season. Should get the nod ahead of Mousa Dembele.

Ben Davies (LWB)

Having started Rose in the midweek game, Poch might look to switch things up on the left flank, bringing back Ben Davies into the playing XI.

Dele Alli (RAM)

The 21-year-old had a very good game against the German side on Tuesday night and he will be looking to carry on from there against West Brom.

Harry Kane

Son Heung-Min (LAM)

Was exceptional in the European game and deserves to keep his spot in the playing XI for the weekend encounter.

Harry Kane (ST)

And at the top, it will be the phenomenal Harry Kane. Will look to snatch his PL top-scorer position back from Mohamed Salah, after having not scored last weekend.
