WBA vs SPURS
As we know pundits only state the blindingly obvious and two former Liverpool men, centre-back Mark Lawrenson and striker Michal Owen, are getting paid for doing just that. Former Arsenal man Paul Merson is bold and goes for a 3-0 Spurs away win at what is normally a tough ground for us.
“For most of last season, people were asking how Spurs would do if Harry Kane got injured but now we know, and they can definitely cope without him. West Brom have made a solid start to the season but this Tottenham team look very convincing at the moment, and they are going to be hard to stop.”
“The last time Tottenham made a better start to the season in top-flight English football was back in the 1960/61 season when they won the title!
“Former Spurs player Nacer Chadli has made a good start to his Albion career and he could be the main threat to a Spurs side who continue to impress.”
"Tottenham are playing very well at the moment and while the Man City result was brilliant, these are the types of games that win you Premier League titles.
"If Harry Kane got injured last season you couldn't see Spurs winning a game for toffee. Now it seems like nothing has changed despite his absence, which is a massive compliment to the other players.
"West Brom have turned the corner but I have been majorly impressed by Tottenham."
