It was a moment of hot-headedness on a night when Tottenham's title challenge was seriously dented by the 1-1 draw.
Dele Alli provided the wrong sort of punch when Tottenham Hotspur last faced West Bromwich Albion at White Hart Lane.
The Baggies arrive at Spurs off the back of a two-game winning run after beating Southampton and Hull in their last two league games.
West Brom's Northern Irish worldwide defender Gareth McAuley will make his 200th appearance for the club at the age of 37.
Spurs' struggles with West Brom have been purely coincidental, says Mauricio Pochettino.
West Brom manager Tony Pulis is set to be without four players for the trip to Spurs.
"If you saw the games West Brom played against Chelsea or Arsenal, they were very well organised".
Spurs have no fresh injury concerns to deal with so Erik Lamela remains Pochettino's only absentee as the attacker continues to work on his fitness in Italy following over two months out with a hip problem. On those numbers, the [1.34] is predictable even though it does look short on first glance against such an obstinate rival, and one that has been somewhat of a bogey team in recent years. West Brom are always a hard working side but they'll be no match for Tottenham's quality. "If you remember we drop our performance after a fantastic victory and now after Chelsea it's a great opportunity to show we deserve and keep the momentum for us will be key". The striker, who arrived from AZ Alkmaar for £17m last summer, has scored only three times for the club - all of them penalties.
Tottenham have won six home matches on the spin, but they face a test of their title credentials with the visit of West Brom. He recently reached 20 Premier League goals after only 52 games, faster than Paul Scholes (74), David Beckham (90), Frank Lampard (140) and Steven Gerrard (165) met the same landmark.
Anthony Taylor takes charge of Spurs for the first time since their thumping 4-0 win at Stoke in September. I do think West Brom have a real chance of scoring though - Spurs have conceded their last two goals to set plays and that is where West Brom are most unsafe!
A big part of the latest discussion concerned how Pochettino has sought to harness Alli's threat by getting him into the six-yard box as much as possible.
