Tottenham v West Brom team news & stats

Date published: Friday 22nd April 2016 4:06

Tottenham have won only one of their last five Premier League home games against West Brom going into Monday night’s crucial clash at White Hart Lane.

Team news

Tottenham have no fresh injury worries and so could start with the same side that thrashed Stoke on Monday as they look to pile more pressure on Leicester in the title race.

Clinton Njie has recovered from a knee injury but may not make the squad, while Nabil Bentaleb remains out with a knee problem.

West Brom boss Tony Pulis also has no new injury worries ahead of the game but could make changes anyway after admitting he made mistakes in preparation for Thursday’s defeat at Arsenal.

The likes of Salomon Rondon and Jonas Olsson will be hoping for involvement after coming off the bench at Emirates Stadium, while Alex Pritchard could return following an ankle injury.

James Morrison, however, misses out with a hamstring problem.

Kick-off at White Hart Lane on Monday is at 8pm.

  • Tottenham Hotspur have won 11 of their last 18 Premier League matches at White Hart Lane (W11 D5 L2).
  • West Bromwich Albion have won just one of their last 12 Premier League games against Spurs (W1 D6 L5), but that victory came in the last visit to White Hart Lane.
  • In fact, the Baggies have lost just once in their last five Premier League visits to White Hart Lane (W1 D3 L1).
  • Harry Kane has scored three goals in three Premier League games against West Brom.
  • Kane is two goals away from scoring 50 Premier League goals – if he does it in this game then he’ll be the joint sixth quickest player to reach 50 goals in the competition (in his 83rd app).
  • Christian Eriksen has 12 Premier League assists this season for Spurs, two more than in 2013-14 (8) and 2014-15 (2) combined.
  • Eriksen has had a hand in five goals in his last four Spurs league appearances (one goal, four assists).
  • Dele Alli has provided three goals and four assists in his last six Premier League appearances for the Lilywhites.
  • Coming in to this matchday, Spurs have the best attack (64 goals scored) and the best defence (25 goals conceded) in the Premier League.
  • Just five days will separate West Brom’s trip to Arsenal (on Thursday night) and Spurs (Monday night) – only two clubs have made the trip to north London in successive Premier League games quicker: Swansea (three days) earlier this season and Leeds (four days) in 1992-93.
