MATCH PREVIEW: Albion v Spurs

Everything you need to know ahead of Saturday's clash with Tottenham

ALBION's Premier League season continues on Saturday as they welcome Tottenham Hotspur to The Hawthorns (ko 3pm).

The opposition

After impressing last season and coming agonisingly close to winning the Premier League, Spurs have started this campaign in similar fashion. Unbeaten, with 17 points from their first seven games, Mauricio Pochettino's side travel to West Bromwich in search of their fifth straight league victory. Their tally of four clean sheets is a league high.

Last time out

It was Craig Dawson who all but ended Spurs' hopes of a first Premier League title with a late equaliser at White Hart Lane in April. The match finished 1-1, just as it did in the corresponding fixture at The Hawthorns the previous December. James McClean scored his first Albion goal that day.

Team news

There are no new injury concerns for Albion.

Harry Kane is still unavailable for the visitors after he injured his ankle in Spurs' 1-0 win against Sunderland in September.


Albion have not beaten Tottenham at The Hawthorns since 2008 when Roman Bednar and Craig Beattie were on target in a 2-0 win. At White Hart Lane, however, the Baggies are unbeaten in four.

Nacer Chadli could make his first appearance against his old club since joining Albion in August. The Belgian has three goals and two assists in his last three games, a feat matched by Tottenham's Son Heung Min.

From the archive

Two goals from former Arsenal striker Nwankwo Kanu gave Albion a 2-0 victory against Tottenham at The Hawthorns in December 2005.

Head to Head

It's been pretty well balanced between the two sides since their first fixture in 1901. The Baggies have won 52, drawn 34 and lost 55 of their 141 meetings with Spurs.
