Spurs will check on the availability of Mousa Dembele ahead of the trip to West Brom after the Belgian was forced off with an ankle sprain in the 2-0 win over Watford. If he isn’t risked at The Hawthorns, Victor Wanyama is set to earn a recall in central midfield, with Moussa Sissoko another option. In the attacking midfield positions in Mauricio Pochettino’s favoured 4-2-3-1 formation, Erik Lamela and Lucas Moura provide alternatives to Son Heung-min who could make way with the midweek fixture with Newcastle United in mind. Kieran Trippier was on the receiving end of some robust challenges against the Hornets, so Serge Aurier will push for a recall at right-back, while if he’s available following a calf complaint, Danny Rose is a possible alternative to Ben Davies at left-back. Toby Alderweireld provides cover in central defence. Harry Winks remains sidelined.
Aurier – Sanchez – Vertonghen – Davies
Dier – Wanyama
Eriksen – Alli – Lamela
