Confirmed West Brom v Tottenham lineups: Lamela starts, Son on the bench

West Brom The Hawthorns

Here is how West Bromwich Albion and Tottenham will line up for today's game...

West Brom will be looking to claim another North London scalp as they host Tottenham at The Hawthorns this afternoon.

The Baggies beat Arsenal 2-1 last month, and Tony Pulis will be looking for a repeat performance today.

Pulis has again left former Spurs transfer target Saido Berahino on the bench, with Salomon Rondon leading the line on his own, though he will be supported by Chris Brunt, Stephane Sessegnon and James McClean.

With the likes of Berahino, Callum McManaman and Rickie Lambert on the bench, Pulis has plenty of firepower at his disposal as he searches for another win.

Tottenham are currently on a 13-game unbeaten run in the Premier League, and Mauricio Pochettino will be hoping for another positive result having performed well in the 0-0 draw with Chelsea last weekend.

Dele Alli returns from suspension to take his place in the Tottenham midfield, whilst Pochettino has surprisingly handed a start to Erik Lamela, dropping recent signing Son Heung-min to the substitutes bench.

Youngsters Harry Winks and Josh Onomah are on the bench too, along with other summer signings Kieran Trippier, Kevin Wimmer and Clinton N'Jie.
