Tottenham travel to the Hawthorns to take on West Bromwich Albion on Saturday aiming to strengthen their grip on a place in the top four.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side have an opportunity to increase their chances of qualifying for next season’s Champions League ahead of Chelsea’s meeting with Liverpool on Sunday.

West Brom will be relegated if they fail to win, and Pochettino has warned his players to expect a difficult battle.

With nothing else to play for this season following last month’s FA Cup semi-final defeat, a strong team will be expected from now until the end of the Premier League campaign.

I think Pochettino will make just one change from the side that beat Watford 2-0 at Wembley on Monday night.

Mousa Dembele has been struggling with a twisted ankle, so Victor Wanyama will almost certainly come into the midfield to partner Eric Dier.

There’s a chance Pochettino will rotate his full-backs too, although he is perhaps more likely to do that in the home game against Newcastle United on Wednesday.

Here’s our predicted XI to face West Brom – what’s yours? Let us know in the comments.

    Big changes but Give Kane a rest. Let Son play upfront.
    We scored 4 against Bournemouth when we had to take Kane off. Let’s get pace going forward. Early goals !

  3. Wouldn’t be surprised if he selects sissy instead of Victor as he appears not to like playing both ED and VW.
    Would still like to see Toby back – but that is the triumph of hope over experience!!!
