By Harvey Byrne
Tottenham have made nine changes to their side which will face West Brom in the Premier League at White Hart Lane on Saturday.
Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has decided to bring Hugo Lloris, Kyle Walker, Jan Vertonghen, Danny Rose, Victor Wanyama, Mousa Dembele, Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli and Harry Kane back into his starting line-up.
This has resulted in 22-year-old Vincent Janssen dropping out of the side alongside Michel Vorm, Cameron Carter-Vickers, Kevin Wimmer, Kieran Trippier, Harry Winks, Ben Davies, Moussa Sissoko and Son Heung-min after the 2-0 victory over Aston Villa in the FA Cup on Sunday.
Tottenham announced the team on their official Twitter page ahead of the league encounter.

The good run has seen them move within seven points of league leaders Chelsea and they will be keen to mount a challenge for their first Premier League title.
However, West Brom in eighth will provide a stern test to the north London club, as expected of a Tony Pulis side.
The top flight duo last met in October at the Hawthorns Stadium in the league with late goals from Nacer Chadli and Dele Alli cancelling each other out in a 1-1 draw.
