Team news and stats ahead of Tottenham vs West Brom in the Premier League on Sunday; kick-off 12pm.

Team news

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho is still likely to be without Harry Kane for the game against West Brom.

The England captain has missed the last two games with an ankle injury but is back in training.

Dele Alli (tendon), Giovani Lo Celso (hamstring) and Sergio Reguilon (muscle) will all miss out as Spurs try and arrest a three-game losing run.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles, signed on loan from Arsenal on deadline day, makes a swift return to north London for his West Brom debut.

Turkey midfielder Okay Yokuslu, another loan arrival from Celta Vigo, could be on the bench after his work visa was processed and he arrived at the Albion training ground on Friday.

Grady Diangana is closing in on a return to the matchday squad after being out for five weeks with hamstring trouble.

Jones Knows' prediction

Like many Premier League matches, the match result and correct score market represent no strong betting angles in this one. For the purposes of a prediction, a home win is obviously the most likely result as the Baggies will wilt under significant attacking pressure, like they've done all season. But you already knew that.

However, West Brom to get caught offside three or more times at 9/4 with Sky Bet does appeal for those looking for an angle in.

A switch to an unashamedly direct approach under Sam Allardyce has seen an upturn in the amount of times West Brom are getting caught offside. In four of the last 10 games in all competitions, the Baggies have been caught offside three or more times. And with Spurs happy to allow opposition plenty of territory - only Liverpool have caught more players offside this season than Jose Mourinho's side - then West Brom's long-ball approach can yield three offsides.

JONES KNOWS PREDICTS: 2-0

BETTING ANGLE: West Brom to have three or more offsides (9/4 with Sky Bet)
