Tottenham Hotspur play host to managerless West Bromwich Albion on Saturday hoping to get back to winning ways in the Premier League. Mauricio Pochettino and his team responded well to the defeat to Arsenal last weekend by coming from behind to beat Borussia Dortmund in the Westfalenstadion.
It’s a result which should have restored confidence and Spurs should now be back into the swing of things. They could really put on a show for an expectant Wembley crowd.
There are no fresh injury concerns for the home side. They’re still without the services of Toby Alderweireld (hamstring) and Victor Waynama (knee) but their mini injury crisis just before the international break is now a thing of the past.
Pochettino does have a few big calls to make with Danny Rose, Ben Davies, Serge Aurier and Kieran Tripper all battling it out for the wing-back berths. It’s a similar story in centre-midfield with Spurs having an embarrassment of riches there.
The Spurs boss can choose from Harry Winks, Moussa Sissoko, Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli. If Eriksen gets a start in midfield then Heung-Min Son, the match winner from Tuesday, will likely get a start alongside Harry Kane in attack.
