Confirmed Tottenham v West Brom lineups: Janssen not even on the bench, Chadli starts

Tottenham Hotspur take on West Bromwich Albion at White Hart Lane this afternoon.

Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to make it six Premier League wins in a row as they take on West Bromwich Albion.

With wins over Hull City, Burnley, Watford, Southampton and Chelsea, Tottenham are flying right now, and have put themselves right back into contention for the Premier League title again.

Unsurprisingly, manager Mauricio Pochettino has gone with the same team that beat Chelsea 2-0 earlier this month, with Eric Dier, Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen forming a three-man defence in front of goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

Kyle Walker and Danny Rose will serve as wing backs with Victor Wanyama and Moussa Dembele in the centre of midfield, whilst Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen will hover around striker Harry Kane.

The likes of Georges-Kevin Nkoudou, Son Heung-min and Harry Winks are all on the bench, but there is no place for struggling striker Vincent Janssen, who has failed to make an impact since his summer move from AZ Alkmaar.

For West Brom, manager Tony Pulis saw his side lose 2-1 at home to Derby Couny in the FA Cup last weekend, and he'll be looking for a response having enjoyed a fine Premier League campaign so far.

Chris Brunt has been passed fit to play and starts at left back, with Allan Nyom still out given that Cameroon have get to give him international clearance to play having pulled out of the Africa Cup of Nations.

With Jonny Evans out, Jonas Olsson starts alongside Gareth McAuley at centre back, with Craig Dawson on the right, whilst Claudio Yacob and Darren Fletcher will protect the back four.

James Morrison, Matt Phillips and Nacer Chadli all start behind Salomon Rondon, whilst Hal Robson-Kanu, James McClean and Everton loanee Brendan Galloway join youngsters Kane Wilson, Sam Field and Jonathan Leko on the bench.
