By Joe,


All bets must be on West Brom to go to White Hart Lane and surprise a few. This tie is supposedly to be a vital one for West Brom survival in the Premiership. Having said that, West Brom needs a miracle in order to escape relegation this season. They are currently last in the Premier League and 3 points away from the other strugglers only 4 games with potential 12 points to play, there is still chance it could happen. It has to happen first at White Hart Lane.

West Brom is fighting for their lives to stay in the Premiership. They have 4 games to get themselves out of the relegation zone and they are currently 6 points adrift from making it possible. Last weekend, Wes Brom showed that they can do it and capable of winning games. They beat Sunderland 3-0 at home with top scorer C. Brunt scoring goals for them. He has been one of the positive notes in the West Brom season and many clubs will be eyeing for his signature in the post season. If West Brom wants to continue their fine form then they will have to win again. They will be hoping that the other fellow relegation strugglers will drop points on the day.

Currently holding on to the 10th place, Tottenham has nothing to play for and nothing to fear as they prepare to host West Brom. Spurs won’t be going down nor will they go anywhere far up the league. Spurs showed both their strength as well as their weakness in their last weekend game at Old Trafford. They were 2-0 up at half time against Manchester United, but they totally fell apart in the second half, conceding five goals. Their compliancy has really followed them this season and Harry Redknapp will want to see that mentality change for next season. Redknapp has been experimenting with an attacking formation . With the likes of Keane, Bent, Lennon and Defoe, they have given Redknapp the options to play more forward attacking, exploiting the width of the pitch. There is no doubt that Redknapp will put forward his strongest 11 if available.

West Brom will not go down to the Championship quietly or without a shout. Effectively, West Brom can realistically confirm their place next season in the Championship if they lose on Saturday and other strugglers pick up points. Spurs will be hard to beat but if Spurs turns out like they did in the 2nd half against Manchester United then West Brom could win and mybet is offering 5.00 for an away win.
