The English Premier League returns on Saturday with the early kick off between Tottenham and West Brom. Tottenham are set to recall a number of players rested for last weekend’s FA Cup victory, with Harry Kane available following the birth of his first child.
West Brom defender Jonny Evans is absent with a calf injury, while Chris Brunt and Jonathan Leko are doubts.
Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino: “It will be a difficult game. If you saw the games West Brom played against Chelsea and Arsenal, they were very well organised.
“They will put us in a very difficult situation without space to play – it will be difficult to find space to create a lot of chances.”
West Brom head coach Tony Pulis: “When you play against a top team like Spurs, anything you get is a bonus.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte will reassess his attacking options following Diego Costa’s omission after a dispute.
Defender Nathan Ake is available after being recalled from his loan spell at Bournemouth, but John Terry is suspended after his red card last week.
Leicester’s Leonardo Ulloa is out with a thigh injury but Jamie Vardy returns.
Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri: “Chelsea lost to Tottenham after 13 [consecutive wins] – amazing achievement. We expect a lot from them but we are ready to fight and win.
Chelsea coach Antonio Conte: “The Leicester game is very important for us to restart to win.
