You’re the Boss: Pick your Spurs team vs West Brom

We’ll be looking to make it fourteen matches unbeaten in the Premier League when we travel to West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

We all know that Tony Pulis likes to play a regimental style which will be looking to snuff out our attacking flair and I really hope that we can continue to put pressure on the top four with a win. After all, on paper these are the matches we have to win if we are to have any chance of Champions League football.

Many now say that the team picks itself. Do you think that’s the case? Have a look at the line-up below and let us know your thoughts by leaving a comment

Lloris

Walker Vertonghen Alderweireld Rose

Dier Alli

Lamela Dembele Eriksen

Kane

Have something to tell us about this article?

  1. I think I would play Son instead of Lamela. Son would give his all for 60minutes then bring on Lamela who will give his all to prove that he should start ahead of Son.Subs could be important if its a tight game.

  2. Lamela is ineffective and holds on to the ball too long- I would prefer any of the available midfielders/forwards over him. I guess my first choice would be to include Son instead of Lamela. He has decent speed, good vision and can create plenty of trouble for the defense. Not sure about Townsend's availability, but he would be my second choice.

  3. As WBA have Brunt at lb I would play Son who is quicker. Brunt is not a natural defender and struggles when in a 1v1 situation or against pace. This way we would have Son and Walker running at him. Both of these have the beating of him across the ground. Likewise at rb they have Craig Dawson who is a cb playing out of position. Rose and Alli could seek to capitalise down that flank in the same way. What we will need to do is get players in the box should we get round the back. Often Walker/Rose look up to cross and see only Kane flanked by 3 or 4 defenders in the area. Then of course they are slated for a poor cross when the defence win the ball. We have 4 attacking players, a box to box mf and 2 fb's available to go forward in any given attack, why do we not see them attack the box more often?
