    • 90'
      Tottenham continue to pepper the West Brom box with crosses but Lescott and Dawson are in no mood to concede a late equaliser and they head clear for the umpteenth time. Eriksen then delivers a corner from the left but Dier's header deflects narrowly wide of the target. Time is running out for the h

    • 90'
      Tottenham launch another attack on the West Brom goal in the first minute of four added on. Lamela picks out Lennon with a clever pass on the right but the former England winger's cross is well cleared by Brunt. Lennon then has a second chance to pick out a teammate as he bursts beyond Pocognoli and

      Joleon Lescott was terrific on his West Brom debut and he epitomised the Baggies' performance with his determination and organisation in defence. Alan Irvine's side will look to make it successive league wins when they take on Burnley at home next weekend while Tottenham will aim for their first vic

      FT: Tottenham 0-1 West Brom. The boos ring out for Mauricio Pochettino's side as they suffer back-to-back home league defeats for the first time since November 2012. James Morrison's second-half header was the difference and on the balance of play, you have to say that the visitors deserved it. The

      HT: Tottenham 0-0 West Brom. It's been a frustrating first half for Mauricio Pochettino's side who have looked sluggish in possession and who have been second-best for large periods. West Brom have been well-organised and have enjoyed the best chances of the game, with Saido Berahino a lively presen

      As for West Brom, they currently sit bottom of the Premier League and are one of five teams - alongside Burnley, Sunderland, Crystal Palace and Newcastle - yet to win a game this season. Alan Irvine signed 11 players in the summer but the Baggies are yet to gel and only Saido Berahino has scored for

      Tottenham currently sit seventh in the Premier League but a win today could take them up to as high as second. Mauricio Pochettino has enjoyed a respectable start as Spurs coach though a heavy 3-0 home defeat to Liverpool followed up by a 2-2 draw at Sunderland has raised a few eyebrows. Can they re

      Hello and welcome to this live Premier League commentary between Tottenham Hotspur and West Bromwich Albion. The Baggies are yet to win in the league since Alan Irvine took charge and today they will be attempting to earn their first victory at White Hart Lane since 1984. I'm Max Bentley and I'll be
    • 1'
      The referee blows his whistle and Tottenham, in their traditional white shirts, get the game underway. West Brom are in their alternative red strip.
    • 2'
      CHANCE FOR WEST BROM! The Baggies win the first corner of the game after sloppy play between Chiriches and Kaboul. Morrison delivers the set-piece from the left but it is headed clear at the front post by Rose. The danger is not over for Tottenham as Pocognoli marauds down the left and his teasing c
    • 4'
      Alan Irvine will be delighted at how his side have settled into this game and they continue to do the early pressing. Berahino latches onto a long ball over the top of the Spurs centre-backs but the England youth international can only fire into the side netting. Early warning signs for the hosts.
    • 6'
      Tottenham threaten for the first time in the game when Rose gets forward from left back. He delivers a dangerous cross into the box but Adebayor cannot direct a header towards goal and Brunt concedes a corner. West Brom defend well from the resulting set-piece and Foster is then called into action f
    • 8'
      Chadli has enjoyed a bright start to the season, scoring three times already. The Belgian cuts inside from the left and floats a teasing cross towards the back post, but it is too high for Lamela and the move breaks down. Tottenham are beginning to stamp their authority on this contest now.
    • 10'
      Berahino is causing Tottenham plenty of early problems with his clever movement and quick runs into wide areas. He once again gets in behind Chiriches but he has no support in attack and a promising attack breaks down. Lescott then goes close to scoring on his Baggies debut as he executes a half vol
    • 12'
      Lamela has made a lively start for Tottenham and he shows his fancy footwork before delivering a teasing cross from the right. However, Dawson anticipates the danger excellently and gets ahead of Adebayor to head clear.
    • 13'
      Rose marauds forward excellently from left-back, playing a neat one-two with Chadli. The England international curls an inviting low cross into the box but Lescott does superbly to clear on the stretch, with Foster nowhere to be seen.
    • 15'
      GOOD SAVE FROM LLORIS! It's end-to-end stuff at White Hart Lane and this time it is the Baggies' turn to attack. Gardner latches onto a loose ball outside the box before letting fly with a powerful effort and Lloris reacts superbly to palm the ball away from safety. That's the best effort of the mat
    • 17'
      STAT: Last season Tottenham lost six of 12 Premier League games immediately after Europa League matches. Will they suffer from a continental hangover today?
    • 19'
      Tottenham are struggling to penetrate the West Brom defence at the moment, with Adebayor and Eriksen both losing possession on the edge of the box. Mauricio Pochettino is up from the bench and barking instructions to his players - he clearly wants to see more from his side in the final third.
    • 21'
      Tottenham enjoy a patient build-up but once again the move breaks down in the final third as West Brom regain possession. Spurs are finding it difficult to break down the opposition's organised banks of four and Adebayor has hardly been involved. Alan Irvine will be very happy with his side's perfor
    • 23'
      STAT: The Baggies' most recent win against Spurs was a 2-0 victory at The Hawthorns on 28 December 2008 thanks to goals from Roman Bednar and Craig Beattie. Can they bring their nine-game winless streak to an end today?
    • 25'
      Chiriches has looked shaky in the Tottenham defence today and Berahino once again nips in behind the Romanian defender but cannot divert an effort on target. That partnership of Chiriches and Kaboul looks far from solid.
    • 27'
      West Brom enjoy an impressive spell of passing inside the Tottenham half but Sessegnon misplaces a pass to Morrison, allowing the hosts the chance to regain possession. The home crowd are starting to become a little restless here as it is West Brom who look the most likely to break the deadlock.
    • 29'
      STAT ATTACK: West Brom have failed to score in their last three top-flight matches and have now gone 315 minutes without scoring. The only previous time they failed to score in four successive Premier League matches was between March and April 2003.
    • 31'
      We've played just over half an hour at White Hart Lane and you have to say that it is West Brom who have enjoyed the best of the game so far. The visitors scream for a penalty when Dawson's header appears to strike a Tottenham arm, but the referee waves play on. Adebayor certainly had his hand raise
    • 33'
      Tottenham are looking sluggish in possession, with their midfielders taking too many touches in the opposition half. West Brom's pressing game has worked to perfection so far and Alan Irvine might be feeling that his team deserve to be in the lead.
    • 34'
      EXCELLENT DEFENDING FROM LESCOTT! The former Manchester City and Everton centre-back has been superb on his Baggies debut so far and he produces another last-ditch clearance to prevent Adebayor from meeting Dier's cross from the right.
    • 35'
      Eriksen finally makes an impact on the game as he threads an incisive pass through for Adebayor. The Togo striker has just Foster to beat, but Lescott races back to make another timely challenge.
    • 37'
      West Brom have the ball in the net but it won't count. Berahino is the danger man again as he peels off Chiriches to control Dorrans' pass before coolly slotting past Lloris. However, the England youth international is denied his third league goal of the season as the linesman adjudges that he was m
    • 39'
      Rose has been a good outlet for Tottenham on the overlap but on this occasion he fails to beat the first man with his cross and it goes behind for a corner. Eriksen delivers the resulting set-piece into the box but Lescott is again in the right place to head clear.
    • 41'
      Lamela has endured a frustrating afternoon for Tottenham so far and he attempts to burst his way beyond Lescott down the right, only to see the centre-half outmuscle him and regain possession for his team. Mauricio Pochettino has plenty to ponder with half time fast approaching.
    • 43'
      Both sides have been disappointing from set-pieces today and Brunt sees his delivery easily plucked out of the air by Lloris. Tottenham then attack down the other end as Dier feeds a pass down the right for Chadli who in turn finds Eriksen on the edge of the box. However, the Dane's effort is deflec
    • 45'
      CHANCE FOR TOTTENHAM! Eriksen is slowly starting to grow into this game and he delivers a peach of a cross into the box which Adebayor somehow fails to get his head on. That really should have been the opening goal for the hosts.
    • 46'
      The teams re-emerge from the tunnel for the second half, unchanged. West Bromwich Albion, looking for their first win of the season and their first goals since the opening day, get the game back underway.
    • 48'
      Tottenham make a bright start to the second half, with Rose steaming forward down the left. The full-back delivers a deep cross into the box but Lescott is there to beat Chadli in the air and clear the immediate danger. Lamela picks up the ball on the right-hand side but a series of stepovers cannot
    • 50'
      Christian Eriksen scored in both of Spurs' games against West Brom last season but he cannot provide the opening goal here as his incisive pass is just too heavy for Lamela who had a made a clever run infield from the right.
    • 52'
      Tottenham have started this second half the brighter of the two sides but they are still lacking that cutting edge in the final third. Lamela escapes from his marker down the right but his cross is too close to Foster who makes an easy catch.
    • 53'
      West Brom threaten for the first time in the second half when Brunt's corner is headed towards the edge of the box to Kaboul. Gardner is there to meet it on the half volley but his effort slices wide of the target.
    • 55'
      WEST BROM GO CLOSE! Berahino is involved once again as he latches onto Morrison's slipped pass down the right before easily jinking past Chiriches. The 21-year-old lets fly with a left-footed effort from just outside the area but Lloris gets across his goal quickly to punch it clear. Another warning
    • 57'
      Tottenham continue to enjoy plenty of possession in the opposition half but they cannot find that killer pass, with Adebayor easily contained by Dawson and Lescott. Mauricio Pochettino must be thinking of shaking things up here, with an injection of pace needed from the bench.
    • 59'
      West Brom threaten when Pocognoli makes a clever run down the left to advance into the box unmarked. However, Brunt cannot execute the pass to perfection and Kaboul makes a vital interception.

    • 61'
      Mauricio Pochettino has seen enough of his side's performance and he decides to make two changes, with Roberto Soldado and Paulinho replacing Nacer Chadli and Moussa Dembele. Can the Argentine's substitutions make the desired impact?
    • 63'
      Eriksen nearly unlocks the West Brom defence when he clips a clever ball over the top for Adebayor. The Dane's pass ricochets off of Foster but he reacts well to prevent Soldado poking in the rebound. The West Brom goalkeeper picked up a knock but he should be alright to continue.
    • 65'
      Play finally resumes after a brief spell of treatment to Foster. Eriksen is looking the most likely to make things happen for Tottenham and with Soldado now up alongside Adebayor, he may have more joy picking his passes.
    • 67'
      West Brom are on the back foot at the moment and they are struggling to earn possession in the final third. It's all gone flat for the visitors in attack and I suspect Alan Irvine may be contemplating some changes of his own.
    • 69'
      STAT: West Brom are winless in their last 13 Premier League games on a Sunday (D6, L7) since beating Liverpool in April 2012.
    • 70'
      CHANCE FOR WEST BROM! Sessegnon has worked hard for the Baggies today and he cuts infield from the left before picking out Morrison outside the box with an accurate pass. The Scotland midfielder looks to drive his shot into the bottom left corner but Lloris dives down low to make a good stop.
    • 72'
      West Brom have stepped up a gear in the last couple of minutes but there is no red shirt to meet Wisdom's low cross into the box. Tottenham then break down the other end but Soldado's pass to Lamela is too heavy and a good opportunity breaks down, much to the frustration of the home support.

    • 74'
      WEST BROM TAKE THE LEAD! James Morrison is the goalscorer as he is in the right place to head in Brunt's teasing corner from the right. The Scotland midfielder had all the time in the world to finish from close range but where was the Spurs marking?
    • 75'
      STAT: That was West Brom's third league goal of the season and their first in 360 minutes.

      West Brom look to put the game beyond Tottenham as Sessegnon produces a splendid turn to get away from Chiriches before driving towards the opposition box. The former Sunderland attacker shapes to shoot and is tugged to the ground by the Romanian defender. However, the referee somehow decides to wav
    • 79'
      Tottenham are frantically searching for an equaliser but Eriksen's through pass, intended for Soldado, is well intercepted by Lescott. It's been a common feature of Spurs' game today and as it stands, they are staring at back-to-back home league defeats for the first time since October-November 2012
    • 81'
      Soldado has certainly given Tottenham more of a focal point up front but the service to the Spaniard has not been good enough and it has all been too easy for West Brom. Adebayor clips a cross towards the back post for his strike partner but it is too high and the ball goes out of play.
    • 83'
      S. Sessègnon is yellow-carded.
    • 83'
      As I mentioned earlier, Tottenham's deliveries from set-pieces have been poor today and Eriksen is the latest to frustrate the White Hart Lane faithful as his free kick goes wastefully into the gloves of Foster. Mauricio Pochettino is pacing up and down the touchline and he does not look happy.
    • 85'
      Tottenham have just five minutes to find an equaliser to deny Alan Irvine his first league win as West Brom manager. A Spurs goal would be harsh on the Baggies who have defended magnificently and who have proved a threat to the opposition goal on numerous occasions.
    • 87'
      Lennon has struggled to make the desired impact since coming off the Tottenham bench and he fails to pick out a white shirt in the box after bamboozling Pocognoli down the right. Alan Irvine is looking at his watch, can the Baggies hold on for their first victory at White Hart Lane since 1984?
    • 89'
      The West Brom midfield have worked tirelessly all game and they continue to force Tottenham into mistakes high up the pitch with their intense pressing game. Victor Anichebe is preparing to come on for the visitors, presumably to hold the ball up in the closing stages and assist with defending late
