Spurs aim to keep their Champions League hopes alive, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the Baggies. Key attacker Harry Kane remains in the recovery room, as well as midfielder Lo Celso, but Spanish full-back Reguilon should be fit to face WBA. In Kane’s absence, a man to watch in the home team will be Korea international Son, who has netted 12 goals in the Premier League so far this term.
The Baggies, on the other hand, are fighting hard to avoid relegation to the English second tier. WBA are ten points behind the safe zone, and seeing that Spurs aim to move closer to the Champions League berth, a home win should be considered. Sam Allardyce should have a full squad to choose from.

West Brom have a surprisingly strong record against Tottenham in recent seasons, losing just one of the last six meetings between the two teams, as reported by Squawka.
Perhaps the most famous of those meetings was the 1-1 draw played out in April 2016, which put a huge dent in Spurs’ title hopes as they looked to chase Leicester City down at the top of the table.
Betting prediction: Tottenham Hotspur 0-1 West Bromwich Albion
Jose Mourinho is under huge pressure to deliver a result on Sunday as his side produced yet another awful display to lose to Chelsea, says 101 Great Goals.
Spurs are now struggling to keep up in the race for the top four as they trail Liverpool by seven points.
West Bromwich Albion’s hopes of survival took a major dent on Tuesday as they slipped to a 2-1 defeat to Sheffield United.
The Baggies are now just a point above the bottom spot having dropped points against the other two sides in the drop zone in their previous outings.
A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds
Mutterings about Jose Mourinho’s negative tactics have grown and grown during Tottenham’s current troubles, Sports Bwin cites.
Since losing Harry Kane to injury during a 3-1 defeat by Liverpool, the Spurs have been toothless upfront in 1-0 reversals versus Brighton and Chelsea.
Having been top of the table in mid-December, they are down in eighth place and simply must stop the rot here before visiting Manchester City and West Ham.
Jorginho’s first-half penalty proved decisive against Chelsea, but Mourinho insists he is seeing a togetherness in his squad.
He said: “It’s not easy to see togetherness with bad results, defeats, difficulties, injuries.
“Togetherness is very easy to show when you’re on a high and winning match when everything is amazing.
“In difficult moments, it’s more difficult to see that togetherness, but I saw that in the second half. No doubts for me.”
Being without Kane is an obvious blow, while Giovani Lo Celso and Dele Alli were also sidelined on Thursday night.
However, the likes of Son Heung-min, Steven Bergwijn, Carlos Vinicius, Eric Lamela, Lucas Moura and possibly even Gareth Bale should be good enough to get the job done here.
Looking at the Tottenham vs West Brom odds, we like 13/2 for a 2-0 home victory.
Last Spurs line-up: Lloris, Alderweireld, Aurier, Davies, Hojbjerg, Dier, Sissoko, Ndombele, Son, Bergwijn, Vinicius.

A Look At West Bromwich Albion’s Betting Odds
West Brom have the worst away record in the Premier League following Tuesday’s 2-1 defeat at basement dwellers Sheffield United.
Matt Phillips gave Albion a half-time lead at Bramall Lane, but Jayden Bogle and Billy Sharp hit back for the Blades.
Sam Allardyce is pinning his hopes on fresh reinforcements helping to turn things around, having strengthened his squad with four new players during the transfer window.
Robert Snodgrass arrived in mid-January and Mbaye Diagne was brought in last week, while Okay Yokuslu and Ainsley Maitland-Niles were signed on deadline day.
Allardyce said: “I’ve done my best to help the squad. The club has done the best to help the squad that’s already here. We’ve done all we can possibly do in terms of improving the squad.
“We hope that the players who have come along to join the fight can make a big contribution as quickly as possible. We have to turn the corner and start picking up points.
“That might not be as easy for Okay from Spain and obviously with Mbaye catching up with the pace of the Premier League.
“Certainly, with Robert Snodgrass’ experience and Ainsley, an England international, will hopefully lift the players and show the quality we know they’ve got.”
The feeling is that this tough test and next week’s clash with Manchester United may come too soon, before a better run of fixtures versus Burnley, Brighton, Newcastle and Palace.
Carlos Vinicius went closest for the Spurs against Chelsea and 16/5 for him to break the deadlock here completes our Tottenham vs West Brom betting tips.
Last West Brom line-up: Johnstone, Bartley, Ajayi, Townsend, O’Shea, Livermore, Phillips, Snodgrass, Robinson, Pereira, Diagne.

Both teams have adopted a similar approach this season in terms of setting up to defend for large periods of matches.
With both sides so heavily focused on their defense and struggling to create chances, a low scoring game can be expected.
