West Brom host Tottenham Hotspur this Saturday, as they aim to keep their ever so slight hopes of a great escape alive.
West Brom have been in great form since caretaker Darren Moore took over from Alan Pardew last month.
Moore has guided the Midlands side to two wins and one draw, one of those wins coming away to Manchester United.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men travel to the Hawthorns knowing a win will take them above Liverpool, and into third place.
The North London side are unbeaten in their last seven visits to the Hawthorns, and striker Harry Kane will be chasing Kevin Phillips’ record of most away goals in one campaign.
Former Spurs winger Nacer Chadli has a chance of returning to the team after returning to fitness, however, Gareth Barry is still out with a knee problem.
We’ve taken a look at some of the key battles which will help decide the outcome of the affair…
Harry Kane vs Craig Dawson
Kane is still hoping for a Golden Boot win so will be desperate to get on the scoresheet. Baggies centre-back Craig Dawson will have to be on his toes to make sure Kane is not given too much space in the box. However, it will be difficult to stop a striker of Kane’s quality.
Moussa Dembele vs Jake Livermore
This will be an interesting battle in the middle. Both are powerful players who like to get on the ball and make things happen. Livermore still needs to prove to Gareth Southgate that he is worth a spot on the plane, however, there are not many tougher competitors you can come up against in the Premier League.
Dembele is almost a complete central midfielder, so the Englishman will have a job on his hands to impose himself on the game.
Matt Phillips vs Ben Davies
Phillips scored last time out in West Brom’s 1-0 win away at Newcastle, and he will be looking to add to his tally this Saturday.
The pacy winger will aim to run at Welsh full-back and get to the byline, so Davies will have to be switched on from the outset.
Christian Eriksen vs Kieran Gibbs
Eriksen is one of the most talented players on the pitch, and the Baggies will be hoping to keep him quiet. Usually deployed on the right-hand side, Kieran Gibbs will have to job of containing the Dane, although he will look to roam around the pitch when he can.
Eriksen is deadly from around the edge of the box, with the ability to score and create from pretty much anywhere. Gibbs will have to make sure that the attacker is never given the time and space to get shots away.
