The furore that followed the 3-3 draw with Cardiff when there was rumours of a players bust-up, Mel’s men responded with a 1-0 win over Norwich and the Spanish coach has revealed that he would be happy for more arguments if it meant his side staying up.

“The dressing room is very good,” he said. “I don’t mind if there are fights if in the following match we win.

“No (I wouldn’t encourage it) but it’s something that’s normal among players and young players who are ambitious.

“The most important thing is what happens on May 12. I’m certain West Bromwich Albion will still be in the Premier League on that date.

“We are now getting towards the end. When I came on January 14, I had a very difficult job ahead of me.

“I had to learn a language as quickly as I could and learn my players. Together we are achieving this. When I did I said I was sure West Bromwich Albion would stay in the Premier League.”

Mel is sweating on the fitness of James Morrison. The former Middlesbrough man is facing a late fitness test on an ankle injury and if he fails to make it Chris Brunt will come in.

Billy Jones and Claudio Yacob are both fit after recent injuries however Zoltan Gera misses out.

Spurs meanwhile will be without Kyle Walker (groin), Erik Lamela (thigh) and Etienne Capoue (ankle) for the clash with Roberto Soldado (hamstring) and Jan Vertonghen (calf) both doubts.

Under-pressure Tim Sherwood saw his side beat Sunderland 5-1 last time out, the club’s 2nd win in their last 3 games. The club are currently 6th in the table, four points behind Everton and just two ahead of Manchester United.
