Tottenham Hotspur v Albion match preview

24 November 2017

ALBION make their first trip to Wembley since 2008 when they take on Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday (ko 3pm)

The opposition  

Despite a difficult start to their spell at the national stadium, Spurs have now recorded three Premier League victories in a row at Wembley - as well as a Champions League triumph over Real Madrid at the start of this month.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side currently sit fourth in the table on 23 points having won seven, drawn two and lost three of their 12 league matches.

They finished second in the Premier League last campaign, and strengthened their squad over the summer by signing the likes of Davinson Sanchez, Serge Aurier and Fernando Llorente.

Last time out

The last fixture between the two sides was in January, when Spurs ran out 4-0 winners at White Hart Lane thanks to Harry Kane’s hat-trick and a Gareth McAuley own goal.

The return game was a 1-1 draw at The Hawthorns, when Nacer Chadli put Albion ahead before Dele Alli equalised with just a minute to go.

Stats

Albion

  • Three of the Baggies’ last four results against Spurs have been 1-1 draws.
  • Gary Megson will be taking charge of an Albion game for the first time since 2004 on Saturday.
  • Should he play, the match at Wembley will be Gareth McAuley’s 200th Premier League appearance.

Spurs

  • Tottenham have won just one of their last five home games against the Baggies.
  • There hasn’t been a goalless draw between Spurs and Albion since January 1982 - a run stretching back 34 games.
  • Harry Kane has had by far the most shots out of anyone in the Premier League so far this season (64), and has also hit the woodwork the most times (five).

From the archive

Craig Dawson dented Spurs' title hopes in a 1-1 draw at White Hart Lane in April 2016.

Head to head

In terms of league matches, the head-to-head record is slightly in favour of Albion.

Across the divisions there have been a total of 128 league meetings between the sides, with the Baggies winning 49 times, Spurs coming out on top on 47 occasions and the other 32 matches ending in draws.

Man in the middle

Mike Jones will be the referee for Saturday’s fixture, and he will be assisted by Scott Ledger and Derek Eaton - with Peter Bankes as the fourth official.

Jones was in the middle for both of Albion’s defeats to Manchester City in the Premier League and Carabao Cup, handing out five yellow cards in each.

Match Reports

Tottenham Hotspur 1 Albion 1

25 November 2017

ALBION claimed a impressive Premier League point as they secured a 1-1 Wembley draw against Tottenham Hotspur.

Salomon Rondon's composed finish across the face of goal in just the fourth minute handed the Baggies a dream start and looked to have ultimately proved the difference until Harry Kane's 74th-minute leveller.

The creditable 1-1 draw, a fourth in the last five meetings between the two sides, ended Albion's run of four successive defeats - in front of 3,500 travelling supporters in what was the club's first return to the national stadium since 2008.

Assistant Head Coach Gary Megson took charge of Albion for the first time since 2004 following the departure of Tony Pulis earlier this week.

And he made two changes as he recalled 19-year-old Academy graduate Sam Field - who enjoyed a superb return in the middle of the park - along with defender Allan Nyom.

And it was Albion who stunned the home faithful early on when Jake Livermore fed Rondon, who shrugged off Davinson Sanchez to coolly slot home low into the far corner past a stationary Hugo Lloris.

Kane fired narrowly wide in the 27th minute before Heung-Min Son tested Foster with low strike shortly after.

Yet Albion's lead remained intact at the break, Foster safely collecting an Eric Dier header while Son flashed a ball across the face of goal and looped an effort on to the roof of the net before the interval.

Matt Phillips rifled a shot just wide of the of the far post in the 55th minute while Dele Alli came close to latching on to Kieran Trippier's drive at the other end.

Yet Kane poked home Dele's low cross with 16 minutes remaining to ensure Albion were forced to settle for a share of the spoils.

Rondon could have stolen it at the end for the Baggies, but he diverted Phillips' low cross wide of the mark with seconds to play.

ALBION: Foster, Nyom, Hegazi, Evans (c), Gibbs, Phillips, Livermore, Barry (Yacob 79), Field (McClean 67), Rodriguez (Robson-Kanu 67), Rondon.

Subs: Myhill, McAuley, Krychowiak, Burke.
