Tottenham – West Brom: Jose Mourinho and Co., will be hoping for a brief respite from their ongoing free fall when they host the soon-to-be-relegated Baggies at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday (Watch live at 7am ET, on NBCSN and online via NBCSports.com).
Having lost three straight Premier League games (and five out of 10 — 2W-3D-5L), Tottenham are tumbling down the table and are now just as close to 14th place (seven points clear) as they are to 4th. Mourinho’s dreaded third-year syndrome appears to have arrived 12 months early, as reports emerge of players’ unhappiness over his ultra-defensive and rigid tactical setup and over-reliance on one player — Harry Kane, who will likely miss Sunday’s game — for scoring opportunities. The countdown to Mourinho’s unceremonious departure has begun, and a loss to West Brom would only serve to speed up Daniel Levy’s inevitable mea culpa.
As for West Brom, the Sam Allardyce experience isn’t going quite as well as Baggies fans might have hoped when he was appointed — seven points from 13 games (0.54 per game) before his arrival, compared to five points from nine games (0.56) under his guidance.
