Lescott set for Albion bow at Spurs

Two changes from defeat to Everton

JOLEON Lescott has been handed his debut this afternoon as Albion make the trip to Tottenham (ko 1.30pm).

The influential centre-back has been sidelined with calf and knee injuries since joining from Manchester City in the summer but the two-time Barclays Premier League winner makes his Baggies bow at White Hart Lane.

Lescott is one of two changes from last weekend, with Stephane Sessegnon also fit again after an eye problem and replacing Brown Ideye, who drops to the bench.

Albion: Foster, Wisdom, Dawson, Lescott, Pocognoli, Dorrans, Morrison, Gardner, Brunt, Sessegnon, Berahino.
Subs: Myhill, Baird, McAuley, Mulumbu, Gamboa, Anichebe, Ideye.

Tottenham: Lloris, Dier, Kaboul, Chiriches, Rose; Capoue, Dembele; Chadli, Eriksen, Lamela; Adebayor.
Subs: Vorm, Naughton, Vertonghen, Bentaleb, Lennon, Paulinho, Soldado.

Referee: Kevin Friend (Leicestershire)
