Spurs suffered a painful 2-0 defeat at the hands of North London rivals Arsenal last weekend but Mauricio Pochettino's charges showed terrific character to come from behind to beat Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League in midweek, and the former Southampton boss will be hoping for more of the same from his side when they take on the beleaguered Baggies.
The 27-year-old is quoted by Sky Sports News as saying: "There was no falling out". I was angry about not being involved in the squad, but at the same time, I understand and I respect his views'. However, he did say he hadn't fallen out with his manager over the decision.
The Lilywhites welcome a now managerless Baggies side to Wembley after beating Borussia Dortmund in Germany on Tuesday night, with Harry Kane and Heung-min Son scoring to secure the win after going into the half time break 1-0 down. He was normal in his behaviour.
"You can ask me about all the players involved". In fact, Marc Williams of the Daily Star says "United are confident they will sign Rose for £45m next summer". Of course they are "fuming". "I told him he wouldn't play against Stuttgart and afterwards I talked to him again and the team". That is the problem for the players.
Pochettino has to decide whether to stick with Rose or restore Davies to the starting line-up for Saturday's game at home to West Bromwich Albion.
Rose returned to Tottenham's starting XI in Germany, and the England worldwide put in a super performance.

"I don't know [if he will be selected]", Pocchetino said.
"There's still a chance".
Pochettino sympathised with Tony Pulis, sacked by West Brom this week, and admits a change in the opposing dugout could affect their game plan.
"West Brom is a team that is aggressive, physically strong. We are going to be ready to fight", he said.
"If you want to win the Europa League and the Premier League or the Champions League and the Premier League, you need to be right how you rotate and manage your squad". We are happy with him because it's important.
