MATCH PREVIEW: Spurs v Albion

13 January 2017

Everything you need to know ahead of the Baggies' trip to White Hart Lane

Albion are back in Premier League action on Saturday as they travel to north London to face Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane (ko 12.30pm).

The opposition

After last season's agony, Mauricio Pochettino's side have come back stronger. Sitting third in the Premier League, seven points behind leaders Chelsea, Spurs have won six games in a row in all competitions. That recent period of success is partly down to Dele Alli. The England international has scored two goals in each of his last three games and plays a key role in a side who average 1.95 goals per game.

Last time out

Craig Dawson's towering header dented Spurs' title dreams in a 1-1 draw at White Hart Lane last season.

Team news

Jonny Evans will miss the trip to north London through injury. Chris Brunt and Erik Lamela will face late fitness tests.

Stats

Despite defeat in the FA Cup last weekend, Albion are making great strides in the most competitive league in the world. The Baggies have occupied a top-ten position in the Premier League since the 2-1 win at Leicester on November 6 and currently sit eighth on 29 points.

Since Albion's return to the top flight in 2010, eight out of 13 meetings between the sides have ended in a draw. The last three games have finished 1-1, including the reverse fixture at The Hawthorns in October which saw former Spurs man Nacer Chadli hit the opener.
