Tottenham Hotspur v West Brom – History and Statistics

All but two of the fixtures between Albion and Spurs have taken place at either White Hart Lane or the Hawthorns. One exception was the very first meeting between the sides and in April 1901. That was an FA Cup semi final at Villa Park that the Londoners won 4-0 on their way to becoming the only non-league side to win the trophy since the Football League was founded.

The other exception was the Baggies’ last away game at Tottenham which took place at Wembley Stadium in November 2017 and was one of the two games for which Gary Megson took the reins after the dismissal of Tony Pulis. That game finished all square with Salomón Rondón scoring an early goal for the Baggies (pictured).

This Sunday sees a new venue for this fixture as the Baggies visit the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for the first time, and it is a great shame that there will be no fans to witness that historic occasion.

Albion have just one Premier League game away to Spurs, a 1-0 win in September 2014 thanks to a goal from current Baggies first team coach, James Morrison, but they have also drawn six of their other eleven visits to Tottenham and their overall record against Spurs is better than that against any of the other “big six”. The Baggies have lost only one of their last six away matches against Spurs, although that was a convincing 4-0 thumping in January 2017.

That Harry Kane is out injured is a boost in that he is the only Spurs player to have scored against Albion since October 2016 – he got a hat trick in the 4-0 win with the other goal put into his own net by Gareth McAuley.

Going back to the pre-Premier League era, Albion’s biggest win at White Hart Lane was way back in 1909 when they won a Division Two fixture 3-1 thanks to a goal from Billy Garraty and a brace from Charlie Hewitt. Only once that Albion scored four away to Spurs – in August 1952, the Baggies won by the odd goal in seven in a fantastic opening day fixture with Ronnie Allen (2), George Lee and a Harry Clarke own goal doing the damage for the visitors.

Tottenham’s biggest win over Albion is 5-0, something they have managed to do on four occasions, the most recent in the 1985/86 season that I have mentioned quite frequently recently. Gary Mabbutt, Mark Falco (2), Tony Galvin and Chris Waddle were the goalscorers that day.

There were a few more memorable visits for the Baggies in the eighties, however. In November 1984, Derek Statham, David Cross and Steve MacKenzie were on the scoresheet in a 3-2 win while in November 1980 it was Ally Brown, Bryan Robson and Peter Barnes with the goals in another 3-2 victory. In between those two games, the Baggies recorded two more wins at the Lane, 2-1 in November 1981 (Hughton o.g. and Martin Jol) and 1-0 (Regis) in March 1984.
