Tottenham vs West Brom: Predictions
Tottenham have slipped down to eighth in the Premier League table following a limp 1-0 defeat to Chelsea in midweek, creating a 14-point gap between themselves and Manchester City in first. It was Jose Mourinho’s third defeat on the spin, and he will be hoping to avoid another banana skin when West Brom travel south.
The Portuguese oversaw a debilitating 1-0 defeat to Brighton last month, which followed on from a comprehensive 3-1 loss at home to Liverpool. However, their latest setback against Chelsea has perhaps hurt Mourinho the most as it is the first time in his managerial career that he has lost two Premier League home games in succession.
The Baggies meanwhile have hit patchy form under escapologist Sam Allardyce, who recently watched his side surrender a one-goal lead to lose 2-1 to basement club Sheffield United, who have finally restored parity with their fellow relegation candidates after a woeful start to the campaign.
There is now a 10-point gap between West Brom and Burnley in 17th, so Allardyce can no longer afford to watch further points full by the wayside if he is to retain the club’s top-flight status and maintain his own record of never getting relegated from the Premier League.

Tottenham vs West Brom: Match Stats
Spurs looked incredibly out of sorts against Chelsea on Thursday. The difference in style between the fluidity of Thomas Tuchel’s system and Mourinho’s was day and night, and the Portuguese must now look to get Son Heung-min back among the goals if they are to get through this spell without Harry Kane.
The South Korean has failed to hit the back of the net in each of the past six games across all competitions, but he will be licking his lips at the prospect of facing West Brom. He has been directly involved in 16 goals in his last 15 Premier League appearances against newly-promoted sides, scoring nine and assisting seven.

During West Brom’s last stint in the Premier League they mustered just six wins and one of those was against Spurs in the penultimate game of the campaign. It was a game in which academy graduate Jake Livermore netted against his former club in the dying embers to give a raucous Hawthorns crowd one final hurrah before they bowed out of the division.
