Tottenham expected 4-2-3-1 v West Brom: Midfield ace returns in nine changes
By Amir Mir
Tottenham could make nine changes to the side that beat Aston Villa in the FA Cup last Sunday.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side take on West Brom at White Hart Lane looking to win their seventh consecutive game in all competitions.
Midfield ace Dele Alli, Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen, Mousa Dembele, Victor Wanyama, Danny Rose, Jan Vertonghen, Kyle Walker and Hugo Lloris might all come back into the starting fold.
That means Harry Winks, Vincent Janssen, Moussa Sissoko, Eric Dier, Kevin Wimmer, Ben Davies, Cameron Carter-Vickers, Kieran Tripper and Michel Vorm could all make way.
England international Alli has been in fine form recently, scoring six goals in his last three league games so he might slot in behind Kane.

Therefore, Eriksen and Son might be tasked to provide the service out wide with Dembele and Wanyama possibly protecting the back four.
Pochettino is likely to rotate his full-backs as the first choice duo of Walker and Rose could replace Trippier and Davies.
They will most likely be tasked to break down a stubborn and rigid Baggies side as Vertonghen and Alderweireld might start in central defence.
The ever reliable Lloris might replace Vorm in goal as the Frenchman has been used between the sticks in every Premier League game bar two where he was injured.
