Writers Prediction League: Tottenham Hotspur at West Brom

Steve Bardens

The writers at Cartilage Free Captain predict the result for Tottenham Hotspur's match at West Brom.

Resurgence. Tottenham Hotspur beat up a struggling Sunderland side 5-1 last weekend, rebounding well after a miserable loss to Liverpool. The win helped reinforce Spurs' top-6 hopes, which would enable Spurs to play in Europa League in 2014-15. Adebayor, Eriksen, and Kane were rampant, but can Spurs continue their renewed attack on the road?

In the way today is a struggling West Brom side that sits 16th in the table. On the bright side, The Baggies are five points clear of relegation with a game in hand, so every point helps West Brom stay in the Barclay's Premier League. Morgan Amalfitano, Stephane Sessegnon, and Matej Vydra are mainstays of the attack, while Gareth McAuley, Steven Reid, an goalkeeper Ben Foster have created a fairly formidable defense. Can West Brom make The Hawthorns a fortress to stop Spurs?

As for the Prediction League, nearly all foresaw last week's win. The rules remain the same in the Prediction League -- one point for a correct prediction and a bonus point for getting the score correct. Here are the current standings:
