West Bromwich Albion vs Tottenham Hotspur
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 5 May 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: The Hawthorns (West Bromwich).
West Bromwich Albion finally managed to find the right momentum, but sadly, it came a bit too late given they literally need a miracle to pull off the escape in the remaining games of the campaign. The Baggies are five points behind Swansea City at 17th, but the South Wales outfit has a game in hand on Moore’s side and matches against the likes of Southampton and Stoke City upcoming.
WBA, on the other hand, need to play the Champions League chasers Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday afternoon. Can they extend their elite class life to one more week, something they successfully did last four weekends? Looking at how the team plays under the caretaker manager Darren Moore, it’s far from the impossible scenario even though they are to play the likes of Spurs.
West Brom vs Tottenham: Head-to-head
- West Brom used to be a tricky opposition to Tottenham Hotspur in the history.
- The Spurs only lead the head to head tie by three wins ahead of 116th meeting with the Baggies.
- Interestingly, four of last five head to head affairs between these two teams ended with the same 1-1 scoreline.
- WBA were much more successful in home matches against the Spurs (28 wins and 16 losses so far).
West Brom vs Tottenham: Prediction
Tottenham will also come into the game in a somewhat better mood after ending the run of three straight games without a win on Monday. Dele Alli and Harry Kane bagged goals in the easy straightforward affair with Watford at Wembley. The win kept the Spurs five points adrift of Chelsea in fifth.
Nonetheless, Kane & company might struggle to create in the final third here given WBA’s impressive spell of form of late. The hosts kept their net untouched in two of last three league games and they held the likes of Liverpool to a 2-2 draw win the previous match at The Hawthorns.
Since Tottenham have generally struggled for results in away matches against WBA, we have to see the value in backing the home win or draw double chance at the odds of 3.00. Punters who fancy big longshots will love the 10.00 odds offered for the 1-1 draw, a scenario which happened in four of last five head to head games.
