EPL Week 8 – West Brom Vs Tottenham Hotspur

West Brom will not be looking forward to an inform Spur team visiting the Hawthorns. Tottenham is unbeaten and the betting tips favorite. They have the best defense in the league and are one point from top place after beating the leader 2 – 0 last week. The Baggies are turning into the league specialist drawers of games having drawn three out of their six matches so far and winning just one. They are not a team build of superstars though so a return of nine points from 7 games is the type of return that will help them finish around mid table. It is hard to soccer predict but if the team keep up the same levels of energy per match they should be comfortably safe.

West Brom

What is surprising is that West Brom is the team in the league that covers the most distance. If you had asked the average fan who they thought covered the large distance, most would have said, Leicester, Spurs or Liverpool. There is zero chance of the Baggie winning the league or reaching the top four but on their day they have the capacity to beat the top teams. Tony Pulis has done an excellent job at getting his players to their highest possible fitness levels and with him, in charge, they are safe from the threat of relegation. Not many fans would offer betting tips on the Baggies beating Spurs but you never know in football.

Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham remains the only unbeaten side in the league after beating Manchester City 2 – 0 at White Hart lane over the weekend. Spurs are genuine title contenders this year, they had the best defense last season and have continued that this campaign. They also have the most shots of goals and if they can increase their conversion rate they should win their first league title in over 50 years.

Mauricio Pochettino has turned Spurs from a team with no leaders and little aggression into a force to be reckoned with. They out run most teams in the league but do so as a team forcing errors from their opponents. Tottenham will not have it all their own way though as the top of the ground covered by players in match play are West Brom. It will make for a fast-paced game and should be an exciting spectacle.

West Brom Vs Tottenham Hotspur Prediction

Tottenham has one if not the strongest squad in the Premier League after the summer acquisitions they made. Soccer predict experts are all backing Spurs to come out on top in this encounter and if they win and Man City lose, they will become the leaders of the league. With the consistency they have gained since Mauricio Pochettino took over as manager, they will be a very hard team for the other to catch if they can gain a points advantage. West Brom will be set up to counter attack and keep compact to try to stop Spurs from scoring. I think that Tottenham will be too strong for the Baggies to handle and expect Spurs to score at least a couple of goals.
