Graham Roberts has called on Tottenham to keep their “incredible run going” against West Brom on Saturday.
Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs are currently sitting in second place in the Premier League, just one point behind leaders Manchester City, following their 2-0 victory over Pep Guardiola’s men prior to the international break.
Posting on his personal Twitter account, Spurs legend Roberts called on the north London side to continue their impressive form against Tony Pulis’ side, and leapfrog City into first place.
Tony Pulis’ side are seen as Tottenham’s bogey team, after Spurs have beaten West Brom just twice in their last eight domestic encounters. Last season, the two sides drew 1-1 in both premier League matches.
Pochettino’s side come into the game in emphatic form though, with just one loss in 10 league and cup encounters this season, and they remain unbeaten in England’s top flight.
Tottenham are without star striker Harry Kane, while Belgium international Moussa Dembele also looks to recover from injury.
The title contenders will also have one eye on the Champions League, as they travel to Germany to face Bayer Leverkusen on Tuesday night.
Saturday’s clash will see attacker Nacer Chadli face his old side for the first time, after starting his West Brom career in sparkling form with three goals in four games.
In other Tottenham news, Spurs could join their north London rivals Arsenal with this £10million-plus deal.
