Tottenham Hotspur are on the road in the Premier League this weekend, as they take on West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns on Sunday.

Spurs are sitting third in the table, having won 10 of their 14 matches this season across all competitions. They will be looking to add to their confidence and momentum, and also keep the pressure on champions Liverpool.

A loss to Everton was followed by a disappointing 3-3 draw against West Ham, but Spurs have since collected back-to-back wins.

The form Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min sends chills down the spines of opposition defenders. The duo have scored 14 of Tottenham's 18 goals so far, and Jose Mourinho will hope for them to continue their excellent form.

The Baggies are struggling as they lie in 18th place with only three points.

Although they did beat Spurs in their previous encounter back in May 2018, West Brom have never recorded consecutive league victories against the same opposition since 1984.

No team has conceded as many goals (16) as West Brom this season either, a statistic Slaven Bilic would like to forget.
