Tottenham vs West Brom – Premier League preview and team news

Tottenham will aiming to return to winning ways against a West Bromwich Albion which has struggled in the early weeks of the season and has failed to score in three matches.

Following the crushing defeat to Liverpool before the international break, Tottenham responded with the ideal performance at Sunderland, but not with the result they wanted, or their dominance deserved.

They have since earned a goalless draw at Partizan Belgrade in the Europa League, but the Premier League is their primary focus and Mauricio Pochettino will be hoping to put the frustration of taking one point from the last six behind him.

It has been a difficult start to life as a Premier League manager for Alan Irvine, who has to look back to Saido Berahino’s double on opening day for the last time they hit the net. Last time out, he was let down by two of his most experienced players, as Jonas Olsson and Ben Foster made mistakes for both Everton goals in a game in which the Baggies offered little in the way of resistance.

Kyle Walker is the only confirmed absentee for Tottenham, but Andros Townsend is a doubt after picking up a thigh injury in the Serbian capital.

West Brom have concerns over Stephane Sessegnon, Victor Anichebe and Youssouf Mulumbu, while a lack of match fitness continues to keep out Silvestre Varela.
