West Bromwich Albion host Tottenham Hotspur at the Hawthorns on Saturday (Watch live online via NBC Sports Live Extra) as the Baggies are still embroiled in a relegation battle.
Pepe Mel’s side bagged a huge win away at rivals Norwich City last week and they’d love to build on that by beating Spurs.
Tim Sherwood’s time at White Hart Lane could well be coming to an end but he does have the best winning percentage of any Spurs manager in the PL. They battered Sunderland 5-1 on Monday, as Sherwood’s side are still in the hunt for a top four spot.
Spurs are unbeaten in their last eight PL games vs. West Brom, while the Baggies have only beaten Tottenham twice in their last 15 meetings.
