    McManaman in West Brom squad

    New signing Callum McManaman goes straight into the squad for West Brom's Barclays Premier League game with Tottenham at The Hawthorns following his arrival from Wigan this week.

    McManaman has vowed to be remembered for all the right reasons to finally remove a two-year-old stigma that continues to hang over him.

    Following boss Tony Pulis' arrival at The Hawthorns earlier this month, talented winger McManaman became the Welshman's first signing.

    Pulis has hailed the 23-year-old as a player with "so much talent", and who "on his day is unplayable", ensuring McManaman has plenty to live up to.

    There is one major blot on his copybook, however, as there are many who have not forgotten McManaman's first Premier League start for Wigan in March 2013 at home to Newcastle.

    McManaman perpetrated a horror tackle on Massadio Haidara that was fortunate not to break the left leg of the Frenchman.

    It was a challenge missed by referee Mark Halsey, while the Football Association were powerless to act at the time due to FIFA-enforced regulations that prevented a retrospective three-game ban.

    "There are some people that still go on about that tackle," said McManaman.

    "It was my first start, I was just excited. I'd waited for my chance for so long and I felt I was ready, and then that happened.

    "It's nothing to be proud of, but it was one of those things.

    "Now I just want to be talked about for the good things I do, and hopefully I can do that and change people's minds."

    Goalkeeper Boaz Myhill damaged his finger in last weekend's FA Cup win at Birmingham and is now out along with midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu (African Nations Cup) and defender Jonas Olsson (Achilles).

    Olsson is back in training after four months on the sidelines, but Pulis has conceded the Swede is not yet ready to be included in the squad.

    Tottenham reached the Capital One Cup final after a 2-2 draw at Sheffield United sealed a tight 3-2 aggregate victory over the League One side - but boss Mauricio Pochettino is wary of his players losing focus on the games to come before their Wembley confrontation, starting with the tricky trip on Saturday.

    "We feel good to get to the final and it is a good moment for the club," he said.

    "But we need to stop thinking about the final because we need to be focused on the game tomorrow, it is a tough game against West Brom. We need to realise it is an important thing to get to the final against Chelsea.

    "For us, the danger is how we take the game. We need to play our game and be focused and this is my worry.

    "It is true that our worry now is to stop thinking about Wembley - we need to plan the strategy because we know for the club, supporters and players it is an important game - but we also need to be ready to play tomorrow and prepare for the next game.

    "This is our challenge now. To keep the mentality and stay focused. The most important game is tomorrow. We need to keep fighting and this is the best way to keep our level and arrive in the best condition in the final."

    West Bromwich Albion 0-3 Tottenham Hotspur

    Tottenham's Harry Kane further enhanced his growing reputation with two goals in a convincing-looking 3-0 win over West Brom in the Barclays Premier League.

    The 21-year-old, whose form reportedly has Spurs ready to rip up a contract signed just five months ago to offer an improved one, took his season's tally to 20 after Christian Eriksen opened the scoring at The Hawthorns.

    Eriksen struck after just six minutes with a trademark free-kick, maintaining his fine recent form for the Capital One Cup finalists. Kane doubled the lead after 15 minutes and grabbed the third from the penalty spot after 66, condemning Tony Pulis to his first defeat at West Brom boss.

    Between the second and thirds goals, however, West Brom had been the better side and Pulis will have seen plenty to encourage him, despite a low-key debut from new signing Callum McManaman.

    A touch of razzmatazz was brought to the occasion by a visit from the cheerleaders of the Kansas City Chiefs, who are in the UK on Super Bowl weekend for NFL publicity reasons.

    The players came out to a guard of honour from the cheerleaders but any sparkle initially seemed lost on West Brom, who started sluggishly.

    The hosts put up little resistance as Spurs carved through them at will in the early stages, getting their first chance after Mousa Dembele was brought down outside the area by Claudio Yacob.

    There was little doubt Eriksen would shoot after his stunning set-piece against Sheffield United in midweek and further fuelling his confidence with a late goal in that League Cup semi-final.

    But Foster still seemed slow to move and could not keep out the in-form Dane's well-struck effort.

    It was the first goal the Baggies had conceded in three Premier League games since Pulis took charge and they were reeling from another soon after.

    This time Kane applied the finish after picking up a defence-splitting pass from Dembele. Kane turned inside Andre Wisdom and smashed the ball home before Foster had chance to react.

    It looked like being a long and sobering afternoon for Pulis but his side responded positively to the double setback.

    Saido Berahino and Victor Anichebe combined well before Chris Brunt shot straight at Hugo Lloris from long range.

    That gave Lloris a welcome first taste of the action before he was called upon to tip over a fine effort from James Morrison.

    Spurs' goalkeeping captain, back in the side after missing their three successive cup games in the past fortnight, then did even better to deny Yacob from close range following an elaborate free-kick routine.

    Joleon Lescott headed over, Anichebe shot just wide and Craig Dawson went even closer, heading against the bar, as West Brom stepped up the pressure. Morrison also wanted a free-kick for a foul by Danny Rose just outside the area but nothing was given.

    West Brom could not carry their momentum into the second half and Eriksen went close to scoring his second with a low left-footed drive across goal.

    Spurs got the chance to increase their lead just after the hour as Lescott slid in to block a cross from Kyle Walker and the ball struck his arm.

    It was unfortunate for Lescott but referee Kevin Friend clearly felt he had no option other than to award a penalty.

    Kane was emphatic from the spot, sending Foster the wrong way with a perfect shot just inside the left post.

    West Brom's response will again at least have pleased Pulis as Anichebe headed over and Berahino drove wide.

    But Spurs retained the upper hand and Foster denied Kane a hat-trick when he touched over his free-kick.
