Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham need to react quickly in the Premier League to minimise the damage done by the defeat to Arsenal in last week’s North London Derby. Nothing can be done to mend the emotional scars from losing to their bitterest rivals, especially when they were expected to win, but a win this weekend will keep them in touching distance with the other sides at the top of the league. Chelsea overtook them and they are now in fourth.

There could hardly be a better opponent to face this weekend than West Brom, whom the Blues beat 4-0 to leapfrog Spurs. That result, their tenth game without a win, left them just one point and one place above the relegation zone. It cost Tony Pulis his job, too, just weeks after he signed a new contract with the Baggies. While it was unlikely he’d have taken them down, the fans were growing restless with the poor performances and style of play under the Welshman.

Life at Wembley, their temporary home, has been mixed for Spurs this season, but we think they’ll have too much for the managerless Midlanders.

Form

There have been two rather unwelcome blotches on Spurs’ recent Premier League record; the defeat at Arsenal and a loss at Manchester United. Pochettino has done a lot of great things for Spurs, but he has not made them competitive against direct rivals away from home with only one win in eight against the top six on the road. But they will look to channel the kind of performance which got them an impressive home win over Real Madrid in the Champions League recently.

PADDY POWER HAS YOU COVERED

Obviously, the whole reason West Brom parted with Pulis is because results have not been good enough. They have now gone ten games without a win, dating back to August, and it was the manner of their loss to Chelsea which truly brought the end for Pulis. As a man who has never been relegated, he has built his reputation on building teams that work hard with organisation. It didn’t seem like he was getting that out of his players in recent weeks, so the decision was taken to let him go. It is a huge task for them to begin their recovery against a team as talented as Tottenham, though.

Team News

Tottenham continue to be without midfielder Victot Wanyama, although Mousa Dembele has now fully recovered from a long injury layoff. Harry Kane did not look 100% fit last week after recently coming back along with Dele Alli and Harry Winks. Danny Rose continues to be left out of the team by Pochettino despite his return to fitness, with Ben Davies seemingly making the left-back spot his own.
