WBA occupy ninth place with 34 points and want to stay in the top 10 while Spurs are fourth with 46, and will be aiming to hold on to their Champions League spot.

England striker Jermaine Defoe is Spurs only recognised striker as Emmanuel Adebayor continues his quest for Africa Cup of Nations glory in South Africa.

Lewis Holtby, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Clint Dempsey are all challenging for an attacking role, giving manager Andre Villas-Boas a selection headache, while defender William Gallas is also expected to play some part in the clash.

In their last fixture against Norwich they drew 1-1 as Gareth Bale scored late while the Baggies lost 2-1 to Everton.

Striker Shane Long scored in that loss and should start while midfielder George Thorne is out after injuring his knee.

Want-away winger Peter Odemwingie is not expected to play after foolishly seeking employment at Queens Park Rangers.

Youssouf Mulumbu is back after DR Congo was knocked out of the Africa Cup and Liam Ridgewell is certain to start in defence.
