As Andre Villas-Boas revealed in his press conference yesterday, Younes Kaboul has been ruled out of this clash but otherwise, there are no new injury concerns.
“Unfortunately, Younes had some discomfort in his patella tendon, so he went to see a specialist to analyse his knee. We’re not looking at anything serious,” AVB said.
That could conceivably give a chance for Michael Dawson to prove his worth to the club while a more likely option could be to bring in Jan Vertonghen to partner William Gallas.
Last weekend, Spurs played Lennon, Sandro, Livermore, Sigurdsson and Bale across the middle in a 4-2-3-1 and there’s no suggestion that this will change unless the coach switches to 4-4-2. Van der Vaart will be desperate to play but is likely to have to settle for the bench once again. Tottenham are favourites to beat West Brom via Bwin and other bookmakers, but they still need to start scoring goals in order to win any games.
Up front, will AVB keep Defoe after scoring last weekend or will Ade move straight back into the side?
Here’s our team to face West Brom but what’s yours?
