Preview: Tottenham Hotspur vs. West Bromwich Albion

Sports Mole previews West Bromwich Albion's trip to White Hart Lane to play Tottenham Hotspur.

Tottenham Hotspur head coach Mauricio Pochettino will recall his first-team regulars for the visit of West Bromwich Albion.

Pochettino made sweeping changes for the club's Europa League clash with Partizan, but the likes of Christian Eriksen, Erik Lamela and Emmanuel Adebayor are all expected to find themselves back in the team.

After Spurs kept a clean sheet in Serbia, Pochettino has decisions to make with Jan Vertonghen and Federico Fazio pushing for inclusion in the Premier League.

West Brom have endured a poor start under the leadership of Alan Irvine, and the former Everton academy coach is under pressure to deliver his first win at The Hawthorns.

Cristian Gamboa and Giorgios Samaras could be given their first starts for the Baggies after both signed before the end of the summer transfer window.

Fellow newcomer Joleon Lescott is nearing a return to full fitness and could be included in the 18-man squad.
