Andros Townsend only Spurs doubt for WBA clash

Published 1 Comments

Andros Townsend is Mauricio Pochettino's only fresh injury concern as Tottenham host West Brom on Sunday afternoon, according to the club's official website.

Townsend's injury

The winger picked up a dead leg in a tough game against Partizan Belgrade on Thursday evening and is doubtful for the game against the Baggies.

With Nottingham Forest coming up in the Carling Cup during midweek, plus league and Europa League games coming thick and fast, Townsend may have to sit out this match.

Returning figures

Younes Kaboul, Danny Rose, Nacer Chadli, Mousa Dembele and Emmanuel Adebayor - who were all rested for the trip to Serbia - are set to return, and will expect to start after the pleasing performance in the 2-2 draw at Sunderland last weekend.

Having made ten changes to the starting line-up for the Europa League Group C opener, wholesale changes are on the cards again, although Federico Fazio could be set for his Premier League debut after impressing on Thursday.

Kyle Walker remains a long term absentee as he recovers from lower abdominal surgery, so Eric Dier should start at right back again.
