By Harvey Byrne
Stan Collymore has tipped Tottenham to earn a victory in Saturday afternoon’s Premier League clash against West Brom.
The north London side are preparing to welcome the Midlands club to White Hart Lane in the 12.30pm kick off.
The two sides have already met at the Hawthorns this campaign, playing out a 1-1 draw with late goals from Nacer Chadli and Dele Alli.
But, outspoken pundit Collymore believes that Spurs will do better this time and has backed the third placed side to win 2-0.

In this run includes a vital 2-0 victory over Chelsea with seven points currently separating Spurs from the top.
Pochettino’s men will be keen to challenge for their first Premier League title and they will see a match against West Brom as a fixture they need to win if they are to do so.
But, Tony Pulis’ side have proved that they aren’t pushovers this season and they will provide a stern test for Tottenham in Sky’s afternoon kick off.
