Match Timings: Nov 08, 5:30 PM
Spurs are in a strong position to finish this season higher after an impressive start to their 2020-21 season. After winning 10 from their previous 14 matches in all competition, Spurs are arguably one of the best sides amongst all the top sides in the world’s top five leagues. After walking away with one point in a 3-3 draw with West Ham United, Tottenham didn’t look back and added two straight victories to march into the top four. Spurs are now unbeaten in six league matches since their loss to Everton in the season opener.
Jose Mourinho's side notched up the highest goals (18) this season, which shows their positive side in attack, and the credit goes to their two most prolific players Harry Kane and Son Heung-min. The duo netted 14 goals together out of 18. In Europa League, they edged past Ludogorets Razgrad 3-1, couresty of Harry Kane’s 200th goal for the club. The Lilywhites have won all three away games, and they can make it four in a row.
Meanwhile, West Brom desperately need points here as they are winless from eight games in the top-flight and sitting in the bottom three. If the poor show continues, the relegation zone can scar them. Slaven Bilic’s men lost to out-of-form Fulham 2-0 last time out. They picked up only three points from 7 matches this season, conceding 18 goals during this losing run. They can find inspiration from their last meeting when West Brom ran out the winners by 1-0.
