Tottenham has won two straight Premier League games for the first time since October, and Romero is back on the field, partnering the interim Ben Davies. They have something to build upon after their 4-1 thumping of Newcastle and 2-0 triumph over Nottingham Forest on the road last weekend, even without important players like van de Ven.
