Albion made it three 1-1 draws in a row against Spurs, a result that was tinged with disappointment although most Baggies fans would’ve taken a draw before the game.
Welcome to jonwant.com! I’m a lifelong Albion fan, an England fan and a lover of the beautiful game in general, as well as being a former referee.
I’ll be posting my thoughts on these subjects, and a few others on occasion, so feel free to get involved and tell me what you think.
The first of Albion’s tricky trio of successive games against three of the Premier League’s top four is against Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham Hotspur at the Hawthorns on Saturday. The Argentine has guided Spurs to an impressive unbeaten league start culminating in an impressive victory over leaders, Manchester City, before the international break.
Albion’s draw at the Stadium of Light saw them cling on to a spot in the top half of the Premier League, but with unbeaten Spurs up next after the international break, they will do well to hang on into the second half of October.
As can be seen from below, eight points from the first six games has become pretty standard for Albion of late, for the last four seasons at least. Only in 2010 and 2012 have Albion bettered that start in the Premier League.
