    • KICK OFF
    • 45'
      Another corner now for the visitors, as we enter the allotted stoppage time of one minute… McClean delivers it, but his cross is a poor one, and the hosts are able to smuggle it clear with ease.
    • PENALTY SHOOTOUT
    • 90'
      We’re into the final minute of added time now, as Tottenham win a free-kick just over the half-way line. Eriksen lofts it in, but again West Brom manage to smuggle it clear and out for throw-in down on the left wing...
    • EXTRA TIME
    • 90'
      Great play by Rose, who does excellent to lose Gardner and drive into the penalty area. He attempts to pick out Kane with a venomous cross, but Dawson again gets across to make the block. Eriksen delivers the resulting corner, but despite the presence of both Alderweireld and Vertonghen, Myhill is a

      Well, that’s all we have time for this evening. What a match it was at White Hart Lane, and what a result it turned out to be… for Leicester City and Claudio Ranieri, that is, as the Italian finds himself within a victory of his first-ever league title. However, if the rest of this is incredible sea
    • 0'
      Tottenham got off to a positive start and looked set to be on their way to a convincing victory once Eriksen’s free-kick was inadvertently nudged over the line by Dawson. But West Brom came out a different side after the interval, and, after Lamela had clipped the woodwork at the other end, Dawson a

      The atmosphere at White Hart Lane is one of desolate frustration, as the Tottenham faithful have seen their side fail to close the gap between themselves and Leicester, who now need to take just three points from their remaining fixtures against Manchester United, Everton and Chelsea in order to cla

      FULL TIME! IT’S ALL OVER HERE AT WHITE HART LANE! And is that Tottenham’s title challenge over? They have been held here by West Brom to a 1-1 draw, with Craig Dawson cancelling out his earlier own goal with a header midway through the second half. It means that, for Leicester, a victory at Old Traf
    • 0'
      Nevertheless, all that will concern the former Southampton manager is that his side do indeed harbour the lead at the interval. They created several chances with some inspired build-up play in the early stages, with Kane particularly unlucky not to have netted thanks to a super save by Boaz Myhill.
    • 0'
      HALF-TIME! We’ve reached the interval at White Hart Lane, then, and it is Tottenham who have a 1-0 lead courtesy of an own-goal from Craig Dawson. The hosts had hit the upright twice before their breakthrough, though West Brom have certainly shown some signs of being able to trouble Pochettino’s sid

      We are just moments away from kick-off now at a packed-to-capacity White Hart Lane. Tottenham are undoubtedly the favourites this evening, and with their recent form - combined with the fact that they have won five out of their last five Premier League fixtures on Monday nights, scoring 17 goals in
    • 0'
      An interesting stat to note, as today’s fixture marks the league’s youngest team - Tottenham, with an average age of 25 - taking on the top flight’s oldest in the shape of West Brom, whose average age is just over 30. Will youth or experience triumph this evening?

      As mentioned, Tottenham’s young star Alli was rewarded for his stunning debut season in the Premier League with one of the mosts prestigious awards at the PFA event on Sunday evening, with Leicester’s Riyad Mahrez having scooped the Player of the Season gong. The 20-year-old England midfielder, sign

      As for the visitors, Pulis has made four changes in total. With Ben Foster ruled out through injury, Boaz Myhill comes back in to start between the sticks, while Jonas Olsson and Craig Gardner also return.

      The team news is in from White Hart Lane and, unsurprisingly, Pochettino has made no alterations to the Tottenham side that hammered Stoke 4-0 at the Britannia Stadium this time last week. That means that it is the third-successive game he has retained the same line-up, which includes the newly-crow

      Though their overall record against Tottenham is poor, West Brom have only suffered one defeat in their last five Premier League visits to White Hart Lane. They sit in 14th on 40 points, and can almost certainly count themselves secure in terms of their immediate future in the top-flight. However, t

      Based on the respective fixtures remaining for the two title challengers in this truly incredible season, Pochettino’s men certainly appear to have the toughest set.

      While this weekend’s results have guaranteed a new name on the Premier League trophy – with both Arsenal and Manchester City now mathematically out of the hunt – the run-in is still set to be wracked with drama.

      Hello and welcome, football fans, to our LIVE coverage of this vital clash in the Premier League title race, as second-placed Tottenham host West Brom at White Hart Lane. With Leicester City’s victory over Swansea City on Sunday lifting Claudio Ranieri’s side eight points clear at the top, Mauricio
    • 1'
      KICK-OFF! We are under way here in north London, with West Brom - donning their black and red away strip - getting proceedings off to a start following at the sound of Mike Jones' whistle! Can Tottenham close the gap between themselves and Leicester back to five points?
    • 2'
      That’s a crisp, incisive start from the hosts, as Alderweireld gets a swift attack started with a neat lob into the path of Walker. The full-back switches the play, with Rose threading it into Kane - the England forward in turn spreading it out to Lamela. The winger cuts back inside onto his preferr
    • 4'
      It really is superb to watch from the hosts, who knock the ball around with such confidence and precision - but all the while retaining the shape that makes them so solid defensively. And they now have an opportunity to create something to trouble Myhill, as Eriksen stands over a free-kick 30 yards
    • 5'
      CLOSE! That’s a sublime, curling strike from Eriksen, who gets his effort up and over the wall and towards the bottom-left corner, but Myhill scrambles across to get a vital fingertip to the ball and parry it out of play.
    • 7'
      HOW DID THAT NOT GO IN!? What a move by the hosts, who - after going short from a set-piece - carved their way through the tightly-knit West Brom defence with some sublime link-up play that culminated in Alli teeing up Kane in the area. The forward looked all set to notch his 25th league goal of the
    • 9'
      More pressure from the home side, as they continue to work their way through West Brom’s midfield with ease. Twice, Lamela delivers two delightful crosses from the left, but both times, the visitors’ defenders somehow manage to get across to make vital blocks from Alderweireld and Dier respectively.
    • 12'
      Free kick! Great play by Rose, who reacts sharply to a rather sloppy pass from Lamela to nip in ahead of Sessegnon, who can only bring the England full-back down right on the edge of West Brom’s area. Eeriness again stands over the set-piece...
    • 13'
      CROSSBAR! As always, Eriksen’s set-piece is unerringly accurate as the young Denmark playmaker curls a terrific effort towards the top-right corner. It beats Myhill, and looks set to dip in under the woodwork but, agonisingly for the Tottenham supporters, it only clips the frame of the goal as it wh
    • 15'
      A first foray forward from West Brom, as Rondon drops deep and looks to play a ball over the top into Fletcher, who had made a penetrating run in-behind Tottenham’s backline, but Lloris comes out swiftly to smother the danger.
    • 17'
      Neat play from the visitors, as they manage to work a counter-attack forward thanks to good hold-up play from Gardner and Rondon, who had combined to thread a throughball out wide to McClean, but the Republic of Ireland winger’s eventual cross is a poor one and Alderweireld is able to clear it with
    • 19'
      Tottenham have, as expected, dominated proceedings so far, and can consider themselves mightily unlucky not to have taken the lead after Kane was put through on goal. However, the visitors are hanging in, for now, and space is at a bit more of a premium now for the hosts compared to what they had be
    • 20'
      GOOD SAVE! Well, it was almost the curse of the commentator then for the visitors, as Kane manages to manufacture half-a-yard for himself on the edge of the 18-yard box. The 22-year-old thumps a low effort on target, but Myhill again reacts well to get down low to his right and parry it wide.
    • 21'
      That’s good defending from West Brom, with Evans doing well to keep touch-tight to Lamela after the Argentine had latched onto Eriksen’s in-swinging delivery from the resulting corner. Though the Argentine got there first, Evans’ presence prevented the former Roma winger from being able to direct hi
    • 24'
      That’s unlucky! Smart, improvised play from Alli on the edge of West Brom’s area, as the youngster twists and turns to shirk off his marker before attempting to thread-in Kane with a delicate lob. Unfortunately for the hosts, however, their No.10 had strayed offside in the build-up, and Myhill is ab
    • 26'
      The frustration is just starting to ebb in to the Tottenham faithful, you feel, as their side continue to dominate but are finding it increasingly difficult to break through West Brom’s lines. The visitors manage to forge a counter-attack following a sloppy Eriksen pass, with only a well-timed tackl
    • 28'
      Top-class play from Tottenham, as Rose, Alli, Kane and Lamela combine in wonderful fashion to kick-start a counter-attack with an intricate, one-touch passing move. The ball is swiftly worked along to Eriksen down the left but, for once, the Dane’s final ball is a poor one and his cross floats harml
    • 30'
      CHANCE! Gardner should be hitting the target there! It was a well-worked move by the visitors, as Fletcher managed to engineer some space on the right flank and drill in a low cross towards the cusp of Tottenham’s penalty area. The aforementioned ex-Birmingham City midfielder was there to meet it wi
    • 32'
      Some half-hearted appeals for a penalty now, mainly from the Tottenham fans, after Rose goes down in the area under slight pressure from McClean. All in all, though, it was good defensive work from the Irishman, and Mr Jones duly waves away the claims of the hosts’ full-back.
    • 33'
      GOOOOOAAAAAALLLL!!! DAWSON PUTS IT INTO HIS OWN NET! Tottenham finally have their lead here at White Hart Lane, then, as a wicked cross by Eriksen drops horribly in front of Myhill on the edge of the six-yard box. Dawson was tussling with Vertonghen, who looked set to nudge in his first Premier Leag
    • 35'
      Great defending from Olsson, who gets across at the vital moment to prevent Kane, who had been slipped in by Lamela’s neat reverse pass, hammering in an effort from close-range as the hosts look to swiftly extend their advantage and put this game beyond all doubt...
    • 38'
      It was a cruel way for West Brom to concede, especially considering they had established something of a foothold in proceedings following that whirlwind start from the hosts, but the lead is, overall, the least that Pochettino’s men deserve.
    • 40'
      Brilliant defending once again from McClean, who tracks the run of Rose and recovers some distance in order to prevent the full-back, who had been played through by Dembele's pass, getting a cross into West Brom’s area.
    • 41'
      That’s a blatant dive by Lamela as he takes a tumble in the West Brom area following a slight collision with McAuley. There was certainly contact, but nowhere near enough to warrant that reaction from the winger, and the referee correctly waves play on.
    • 43'
      Rondon really should be doing better there! It was smart and strong hold-up play from the burly forward, who held off two Tottenham markers before slipping a pass into the channel for Gardner to race onto. The former Sunderland man drives forward and looks to pick out the Venezuelan with a low cross
    • 44'
      Some good luck there for the hosts as, after they fail to clear a corner, Yacob’s deflected strike trickles into the arms of Lloris. There was plenty of pace on the strike, however, and the deflection - which came off Rose - may easily have taken it past the Frenchman.
    • 46'
      Welcome back! We are back up and running at White Hart Lane, as Tottenham get the second half under way...
    • 47'
      An early opportunity now for West Brom, as Sessegnon’s hopeful strike takes a knick off a Tottenham defender and goes out for a corner to the visitors. Gardner whips in the cross, which Olsson meets under pressure from Vertonghen, and that challenge is enough to mean the Swedish centre-back can only
    • 50'
      There is certainly a slight air of nervousness around White Hart Lane in the early moments of this second half, and you feel that it is vital that Tottenham get that second goal in order to gain the phycological edge they need to see out this game. However, at this moment, it is West Brom who are ap
    • 52'
      A chance now for the visitors, as Gardner is clipped by Lamela about 30 yards out from goal. The West Brom No.8, whose last goal came from a free-kick against Leicester, will take it...
    • 53'
      It’s a fair enough effort from Gardner, as his strike gets up over the wall with the help of a slight deflection. Fortunately for the hosts, the knick again falls kindly for Lloris, who is able to make a comfortable stop.
    • 55'
      CHANCE! That’s a wonderful cross by Dawson from the right, but it proves in vein as none of the West Brom attackers had made a run into the six-yard box. The visitors are certainly making life difficult for Tottenham as it stands...
    • 57'
      Finally, an opportunity for Tottenham to mount their own pressure as Kane gets a slice of fortune with a favourable bounce and manages to drive towards West Brom’s penalty area. Olsson gets back to make the tackle, but can only clear as far as the onrushing Alli, who turns it on to Eriksen. The form
    • 58'
      POST! That’s so unlucky! It was a superb counter-attack by Tottenham, as Eriksen burst past Yacob before laying it off to Lamela. The Argentine adjusted his feet brilliantly to direct a low strike towards goal, but it clatters agonisingly off of the woodwork and, despite Kane almost getting to the r
    • 60'
      A first booking of the game now, as Jonny Evans picks up a yellow card after he had hauled down Erik Lamela down on the right flank, providing another chance for Eriksen to deliver some quality into the penalty area...
    • 61'
      CHANCE! As it so often is, Eriksen’s delivery is of world-class quality. The cross is hit with venom, and dips wickedly as it nears Myhill’s goal. Vertonghen tussles with Evans on the edge of the six-yard box in an attempt to get to the ball first, but he can just not stretch out far enough to get h
    • 64'
      CLOSE! That’s a bad miss form Rondon, and a real let off for Tottenham! It was nothing more than a hopeful punt into the area from the left by Gardner, but the West Brom striker makes the ball his with a towering leap. He gets a powerful header to it, but somehow he can only turn his effort inches w
    • 65'
      What an effort by Eriksen! Inspired stuff from the Dane, who charges through towards goal and, with little else on, looks to toe-poke a dipping strike into the bottom-right corner. The shot leaves Myhill stranded in the centre of the goal, but it is not to be yet again for the hosts as the ball sail
    • 67'
      That’s superb defending from Evans, who utilises all of his experience to track the run of Lamela and prevent Walker’s excellent cross reaching the Argentina midfielder. The Northern Irishman turns from hero to villain in a matter of moments, however, as he recklessly dives in on Kane and allows Eri
    • 68'
      SO CLOSE! This time, Eriksen’s delivery is a poor one, and West Brom manage to clear it. However, Dembele quickly recovers possession and looks to surprise Myhill with a driven strike from range that whistles just wide of the target.
    • 70'
      Great goalkeeping from Myhill! The Welshman had to get his timing spot-on there, and thankfully for Pulis’ side he did just that as he came out to head it away from danger after Alli had played in Eriksen with a sumptuous diagonal pass after the hosts had broke clear following a West Brom corner at
    • 71'
      WHAT A SAVE! That’s a quality stop by Lloris, who gets his fingertips to Rondon’s powerful effort - which looked set to hammer into the back of the net - and parry it over for a corner.
    • 73'
      G C. Dawson Assist C. Gardner
    • 73'
      Gardner’s delivery has been top-quality all evening, and that assist is no less than he deserves. He has really put in a shift tonight!
    • 73'
      GOOOOOAAAAALLLL!!! WEST BROM ARE LEVEL! And it is that man Dawson, who gave Tottenham the lead with his own-goal, who has headed the Baggies back into this game! It was a terrific corner from Gardner, delivered into a dangerous area, but in all truth the fault must lay with Lloris who, after making

      SI R. Mason SO C. Gardner
    • 75'
      And matters have swiftly got worse for Tottenham as, following that West Brom equaliser, Eric Dier has to receive some treatment before hobbling off the field with what appears to be a nasty-looking ankle injury. Ryan Mason is his replacement.
    • 78'
      Well, we are set for a truly monumental last 10 minutes or so at White Hart Lane, as the hosts must surely go all-out for the victory in order to maintain the pressure on the league leaders, who will be salivating at the thought of being able to clinch the title at Old Trafford on Sunday should this
    • 80'
      That’s extremely unlucky for West Brom, as Mr Jones deems that Yacob had felled Dembele 30 yards out from goal when, in fact, it appears that the Belgian had lunged in dangerously on the Baggies midfielder who, to add insult to injury, now has to make his way off the pitch while this free-kick is ta
    • 82'
      HIGH AND WIDE! Well, just when Tottenham most needed the Dane to deliver a quality effort, he loses his nerve and thumps a shanked strike well off target and into the crowd.
    • 84'
      It has been an entirely rejuvenated performance from the visitors since the interval, and they are showing no signs of sitting back on their laurels for the remainder of this game, with Rondon, Sessegnon and Gardner all continuing to press high up the pitch.
    • 85'
      SI Heung-Min Son SO C. Gardner
    • 85'
      A second change of the night now from Pochettino, as he gives Heung-Min Son five minutes - plus whatever amount of stoppage time is allotted - to try and be a hero for the hosts. The South Korea forward has replaced Erik Lamela.
    • 88'
      CLOSE! Almost for West Brom, as another brilliant corner from Garden finds McAuley at the back post, but Vertonghen does well to stick with his man and get a header to it ahead of the veteran Baggies defender.
    • 90'
      SI N. Chadli SO C. Gardner
    • 90'
      SI Sandro SO C. Gardner
    • 90'
      In the meantime, Pulis has also made a change, introducing the former Tottenham midfielder Sandro in place of Stephane Sessegnon, as the fourth official indicates a minimum of five minutes of added time...
    • 90'
      A third and final substitution of the game now for Tottenham, as Dele Alli - who has been well-marshalled this evening - makes way for Nacer Chadli.
