West Brom vs Tottenham – Preview and prediction

Two of the most experienced managers in the Premier League go head-to-head at the Hawthorns as West Brom take on Tottenham.

Roy Hodgson’s Baggies are in their highest spot in the Premier League for almost 12 months and the former Liverpool boss has been praised for the work he has done with the club. West Brom won 2-1 at home to Bolton last week and could see the return of Paul Scharner from a three week lay-off after a knee problem. Strikers Shane Long and Peter Odemwingie will shake off their problems and be ready to play.

Harry Redknapp returned to the dugout after his heart procedure and saw his Tottenham side dismantle a poor Aston Villa 2-0. Spurs are on fire at the moment and striker Emmanuel Adebayor will regain his place following his brace on Monday night. Russian forward Roman Pavyluchenko could make his first start in a league game this season due to doubts over Jermain Defoe and Rafael van der Vaart’s fitness.

West Brom have not lost to Spurs at the Hawthorns since 2003 and will be brimming with confidence following their start to the season. Redknapp’s side are in magnificent form though and look set to pick up another three points to extend their unbeaten run.
