West Brom vs Tottenham Preview:
On February 3rd West Brom welcomes Tottenham at the Hawthorns in West Bromwich. Champions League-placed Spurs will try to get three points against stuttering Baggies. Andre Villas-Boas’ team has not lost in their last eight EPL games, while WBA are loosing their great early-season form.
West Brom are ninth in the Premier League with thirty four points from twenty four matches. The Baggies have ten wins, four draws and ten losses so far this season. They are now eight points behind the last Champions League place. Their early season hopes of a European zone are flying away. Their present form has been awful with three defeats and two draws in their last five games. Last five home matches WBA have finished with one win, two draws and two defeats. Buggies were defeated by Everton with the score 2-1 in midweek. West Brom had a remarkable start of this season, but now they are seven games without a win. Their best striker Romelu Lukaku has scored seven goals and assisted one goal.
Tottenham still goes fourth in the EPL table with forty two points from twenty four games, having won twelve, drawn six and lost six so far this season. The Spurs now have just one point lead over fifth-placed Everton. Their present form has been very poor with three straight EPL draws, one win and one FA Cup defeat from their last five matches. Last five games away from home have seen two wins, two draws and one loss. They have managed to play a 1-1 draw with Norwich, thanks to pretty late equalizer of G. Bale. They need a win here, or it could cause them to fall outside of the Champions League zone.Tottenham have eight EPL matches undefeated run, but they have drawn half of those games.
Head coach Steve Clarke has no fresh injury worries. Midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu is ready after DR Congo had been knocked out of the AFCON. Liam Ridgewell could also return instead of Goran Popov. Shane Long has all chances to start from the beginning after his goal against Everton. But Romelu Lukaku’s is in a good form. Marc-Antoine Fortune, Steven Reid and Claudio Yacob are all in contention.Peter Odemwingie still remains a WBA player even after that he travelled to QPR without permission. He is available, but it is unlikely that he will play on Sunday.
Andre Villas-Boas will play without Emmanuel Adebayor. He failed on signing another forward in the January transfer window, so Jermain Defoe will act up front.Lewis Holtby was impressive against Norwich, but Gylfi Sigurdsson and Clint Dempsey also could appear in an attacking midfield zone. William Gallas has returned after injury from the bench in the game with Norwich, so he could start from first minutes.
