Baggies entertain visitors from North London at the Hawthorns.
After the soap opera surrounding Peter Odemwingie’s future, Albion will be glad to get back to playing football. They could also do with a decent result after a poor run. Steve Clarke’s side have won two out of their past 13 fixtures in all competitions and picked up one point from a possible 15. Tottenham, in contrast, are unbeaten in their last eight Premier League matches, although The Hawthorns has unhappy memories for André Villas-Boas, who lost his job as Chelsea manager after a 1-0 defeat here last year.
