Vela in Baggies contention

On-loan West Brom striker Carlos Vela is under serious consideration for a rare start this weekend.Vela joined Albion in January from Arsenal on a loan deal until the end of the season, but has started just one game.His other four appearances have been as a sub, with the latest a 15-minute cameo in Saturday's 3-1 defeat at home to Chelsea.Vela, however, has scored vital goals in coming off the bench in the 1-1 draws with Wolves and Stoke, and could now figure from the off at Spurs on Saturday.Assistant manager Michael Appleton said: "Tottenham is going to be a slightly different test to Chelsea, albeit they are a team who like to have a lot of possession."So when we do win back the ball, I'd like to think we can be a little more clever than we were in the first half against Chelsea - and Carlos comes into that category."I'm sure he will be in the gaffer's thoughts quite heavily after his appearance on Saturday."
