WEST BROMWICH ALBION FC vs TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR FC Match Preview & Analysis

Jose Mourinho has done a good job of deflecting questions surrounding Tottenham’s chances of winning the Premier League this season, but should they win on Sunday, they will go top of the league if only briefly.

Liverpool and Leicester can re-overtake them with wins of their own later, but it will mark a significant improvement should Spurs go into 1st, as well as setting down a marker of their intentions this season.

They are not the perfect team, but while they have players like Kane and Son in the form of their lives, and a manager in Mourinho who knows what it takes to win, then they can always challenge.

This certainly cannot be said for West Brom, who continue to struggle in picking up points since returning to the Premier League. 

They will need a huge improvement from all over in order to survive this season, but at the moment it looks unlikely.

Spurs are huge favourites here.

Teams Preview

West Bromwich Albion FC Preview

Form Guide (all comps): DLDDL

Reasons to be cheerful:

     Are playing well in patches, if not the whole game

     All three draws have come in last five games

Reasons to be fearful:

     Conceded a league-high 16 goals this season

     Show little sign of the quality needed to survive

West Brom certainly can’t pick and choose which teams they perform well against, but it is not games against the big sides like Tottenham which will define how their season shapes up.

They must pick up as many points as possible from the teams around them, however they failed to do just that against Fulham last weekend, losing 2-0 in a poor performance.

They just don’t seem to have the quality to play well throughout an entire match, rather 20 or 30 minutes at a time, as we saw in the first half against Chelsea, or late on against Brighton.

Manager Slaven Bilic admitted he is “worried” with the performances that his side are putting in, and it won’t get any easier against a Tottenham side who are as good as any in the league at the moment.

Star Man – Callum Robinson

Must surely come into this side, with three goals this season and two more than anyone else available

Reasons to be cheerful

     Longest unbeaten run in the league

     Are winning matches even when not playing at their best

Reasons to be fearful 

     Gareth Bale has still not really clicked since return

     Several injury doubts this weekend

There is a growing momentum behind Tottenham that often leads to clubs winning trophies come the end of the season.

After losing their opening match to Everton (who Spurs have since overtaken in the league), Mourinho’s men have gone on an unstoppable run of six matches unbeaten, winning four of those.

One characteristic of a top side is the ability to win matches even when not playing at their best, something which showed last weekend in narrowly beating Brighton thanks to Gareth Bale’s first goal of the season.

Bale is showing a slow but steady return to fitness, though he will be expected to contribute more as the season continues. 

When the likes of Son and Kane, who recently scored his 200th Spurs goal, are in such good form, others have the luxury of taking their time to get back to their best.

They should have far too much for West Brom here.

Star Man – Harry Kane

Reaching 200 Tottenham goals is a mammoth achievement, though has many years left ahead of him.

WEST BROMWICH ALBION FC vs TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR FC Winning Prediction

     Spurs are clear favourites to claim three points here

     Harry Kane to continue his fine goal scoring form

     West Brom unlikely to trouble the scorers

The chances are that Tottenham will be top of the table after their clash against West Brom this weekend, albeit briefly as Leicester and Liverpool play afterwards.

Tottenham certainly look capable of challenging for the league title, not to mention other trophies, this season, but they must continue to win these types of games to keep up the pressure on Liverpool.

West Brom will likely be overpowered by Spurs’ fantastic forward line – Kane, Son, Bale and Lucas can all find the back of the net consistently and will fancy their chances of scoring a few this weekend.
