October 15, 2016 15:00pm - The Hawthorns

Premier League

West Bromwich Albion will seek to extend their unbeaten run to four games on Saturday when second-ranked Tottenham Hotspur pay a visit to the Hawthorns in the Premier League.

West Brom proving tough to beat

With just seven games gone, West Brom are sitting comfortably in the Premier Leagues top 10 with a total of nine points. Tony Pulis’ men may not set the world on fire with their performances but they set the benchmark for efficiency and doggedness amongst the mid-table set.

The Baggies have lost just once in their last five games, having drawn three and won the other. They come into this game on the back of a two 1-1 draws away to basement clubs Stoke City and Sunderland. They have the joint-fourth tightest defence in the league and five of their seven matches have finished with a total of two goals or less.

Tottenham Hotspur are one of only three teams that have a better defensive record than West Brom. They are also the only side yet to have beaten in the Premier League.

Mauricio Pochettino`s men will be coming into this match full of confidence after beating title favourites Manchester City 2-0 at home last time out. That result moved them to within a point of the leaders with seven games played. No other team has taken a point off Pep Guardiola’s men his season.

The North Londoners have won their last four matches in a row and have scored in every away match they have played this season.

Team news

The home side should have a full strength squad to choose from.

Meanwhile, the visitors will have to make do with out Moussa Dembele and Harry Kane.
