Premier League: West Brom v Tottenham match preview
A look ahead to this weekend's Premier League match at The Hawthorns
Friday 01 February 2013
Peter Odemwingie’s transfer mix-up on Thursday night is likely to go down as one of the great Deadline Day stories and the striker has since admitted his behaviour was ‘a little unprofessional’. As such, West Brom have said he will play no role this weekend.
The attention on Odemwingie and West Brom cannot have come at a worse time this season for Steve Clarke, who has seen his side fail to win any of their last seven games. The Baggies now sit in ninth position having previously been as high as third in November.
Spurs are unbeaten in eight Premier League games but have drawn their last three and were arguably lucky to leave Norwich with a point on Wednesday night as it took a superb individual effort from Garth Bale to bring them level. With Everton and Arsenal both facing ‘winnable’ fixtures on Saturday, the pressure could well be on for Andre Villas-Boas’s side.
