Albion v Tottenham Hotspur match preview

4 May 2018

ALBION will be looking to make it five games unbeaten when they host Tottenham Hotspur at The Hawthorns on Saturday (ko 3pm).

The opposition 

Spurs currently sit fourth in the Premier League table have accumulated 71 points from their 35 games so far this season.

The North London side have won three, drawn one and lost one of their last five PL fixtures.

They are five points clear of fifth-placed Chelsea and come into the match off the back of a 2-0 triumph over Watford.

Last time out 

The most recent fixture between the two sides was a 1-1 draw at Wembley back in November.

Salomon Rondon opened the scoring for Albion inside four minutes before Harry Kane’s strike with just over quarter of an hour to go meant the points were shared.

Stats

Albion

  • Albion went unbeaten throughout the whole of April (P4, W2, D2).
  • The good run of form prompted Darren Moore to be nominated for the Barclay’s PL Manager of the Month award and Jake Livermore to be shortlisted as the EA Sports PL Player of the Month.
  • Four of the last five meetings between the Baggies and Spurs have ended 1-1.

Spurs

  • Mauricio Pochettino’s side have scored in each of their past 23 PL matches, their longest scoring run in the top division since April 1987.
  • Dele Alli has been involved in seven goals in his last seven games for Spurs in all competitions (five goals, two assists).
  • Harry Kane is currently second in the race for the PL Golden Boot on 27 goals - four behind Mohamed Salah (31).

Here are the highlights from the clash at Wembley earlier in the season…

Head to head 

The overall head-to-head record sees Spurs just about come out on top.

Of the 145 matches that have been played, Albion have won 53 times, there have been 36 draws and Spurs have been victorious on 56 occasions.

The Baggies have actually recorded more league wins in this fixture (49) than Spurs have (47).

The referee for Saturday’s game is Mike Jones, and he’ll be assisted by Ian Hussin and Mark Scholes - with Andre Marriner as the fourth official.

This match will be the fifth time that Jones has refereed Albion across all competitions this season, and he was also in the middle for the reverse clash with Spurs at Wembley.

Match Reports

Albion 1 Tottenham Hotspur 0

5 May 2018

ALBION continued their unlikely Premier League survival mission with a dramatic 1-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur at The Hawthorns.

The Baggies went into the game knowing that nothing less than three points would keep alive their hopes of top-flight survival.

It looked as though a battling point against Mauricio Pochettino's side would not be enough to secure safety. But, incredibly, Jake Livermore bundled the ball home deep into injury time to send The Hawthorns crowd, who had stayed with their team throughout, into raptures. 

It means all eyes now turn to Southampton's clash with Everton at Goodison Park. Should the Saints be defeated, Albion's Premier League status will remain at least until Tuesday evening, when Mark Hughes' side travel to fellow strugglers Swansea.

Darren Moore, having guided the club to impressive victories over Manchester United and Newcastle United and draws against Liverpool and Swansea City since taking charge, kept faith with an unchanged starting XI for his fifth match at the helm.

Spurs dominated possession in the opening quarter of the encounter although Ben Foster remained largely untroubled, tipping over from Victor Wanyama in the 24th minute.

Yet the Baggies keeper was called upon to make a superb save to deny Harry Kane on the half-hour mark, with the England striker heading wide from the resulting corner.

Albion enjoyed a spell of pressure just before the break, Jay Rodriguez seeing his effort headed over the crossbar and away to safety by Toby Alderweireld before Ahmed Hegazi nodded a Chris Brunt corner narrowly wide.

Salomon Rondon could not connect with Matt Phillips' low cross at the start of the second half.

Foster was on hand again to thwart Spurs either side of the hour mark, first blocking from Erik Lamela before then palming away Christian Eriksen's free-kick.

Hugo Lloris reacted quickly to tip over Kane's sliced clearance as Mooro turned to both Daniel Sturridge and Nacer Chadli off the bench as the encounter entered the latter stages.

The atmosphere built as Matt Phillips stood over a late, late corner. And, after a scramble in the Spurs area, the ball was bundled home by Livermore. With the goal timed at 92 minutes, there was no opportunity for the visitors to respond.

For now, the Baggies keep fighting.

ALBION: Foster, Nyom, Dawson, Hegazi, Gibbs, Phillips, Livermore, Brunt (c), McClean (Krychowiak 87), Rodriguez (Chadli 79), Rondon (Sturridge 74).

Subs: Myhill, Evans, Yacob, Robson-Kanu.
