    • KICK OFF
    • 45'
      What was I saying about West Brom not looking at all dangerous? McLean dances inside Ben Davies from the right wing before hitting a shot that bobbled up in front of Lloris who spilt it, almost to the feet of Rondon but Vertonghen was on hand to mop up.
    • PENALTY SHOOTOUT
    • 90'
      FULL-TIME! West Bromwich Albion 1-1 Tottenham Hotspur.
    • 90'
      SAVE! Wonderful reactions from Ben Foster, who tips over Eriksen's brilliant curling effort that looked destined for the top corner. It is almost the final action of the game as the resulting corner is hacked away at the near post.
    • 90'
      Eriksen plays in Son, who is then cynically taken out by Jonny Evans - as clear a foul and yellow card as you are likely to see.
    • HALF TIME
    • 45'
      And that's half time here at The Hawthorns. West Bromwich Albion 0-0 Tottenham Hotspur.
    • 90'
      Tottenham certainly aren't settling for a point here - they are chucking the kitchen sink at West Bromwich Albion, who now look fairly content to run the clock down and earn what would be a very respectable draw.

      Thanks very much for joining us this afternoon. It took a little while to truly get going but it was worth it when it did! Enjoy the rest of your weekend and we hope you can join us again soon.

      Tottenham's unbeaten record remains in tact but this will still feel like a missed opportunity with Manchester City dropping points at home against Everton. The Spurs faithful will be concerned about the injury to defensive lynchpin Toby Alderweireld and will hope it is nothing too serious with so m

      Mauricio Pochettino must be sick of the sight of Tony Pulis and his teams. The West Brom manager seems to have the measure of his Argentinian counterpart. That said, Nacer Chadli's goal was a bonus for a typically gritty and determined Baggies performance. However, the Spurs boss will be very please
    • 0'
      Yet another 1-1 draw between these sides. And there will be mixed emotions for both camps at full time here. On the face of it is a better point for the Baggies than it is Tottenham Hotspur yet the Baggies will reflect on what might have been - having taken the lead with just eight minutes remaining
    • 0'
      It is difficult to see the pattern of the game changing much in the second half. These are two sides that have very clear footballing philosophies and very little is going to happen that will change their approach. If Spurs score first it will be interesting to see if the Baggies come out of their d
    • 0'
      Pochettino on the other hand will be quite happy but cursing some poor finishing, most notably from Dele Alli and Erik Lamela and some inspired goalkeeping from the West Brom number one. The Spurs manager will believe that if his team keep creating chances in the second half then the goal will come
    • 0'
      You would imagine that Tony Pulis would be the more satisified of two managers at half-time. They are looking to fo a job on Tottenham here and they are 50% of the way towards completing it. They have also shown in brief moments that they have enough about them going forward to perhaps nick this gam
    • 0'
      The teams are out on the pitch which is bathed in sunlight here in the Midlands. Kick off is just a couple of minutes away now. Spurs will be in their away kit of all gold while the Baggies are in their traditional kit of white and blue striped shirts with white shorts and socks.
    • 0'
      The smart money today would be on a draw. 45% of the last twenty Premier League encounters have ended all square. West Brom have only conceded one first half goal this season while the visitors Tottenham have only conceded one second half goal. All these factors would lead you to believe that this i

      As for high flying Tottenham, still the only Premier League that are yet to taste defeat this season, Pochettino makes a couple of changes with Tuesday's Champions League game away at Bayer Leverkusen in mind. Danny Rose misses out on the eighteen altogether after playing the majority of the two Eng

      So the headline news from Tony Pulis' team selection is that skipper Darren Fletcher is fit to play after picking up a dead leg whilst on international duty with Scotland. Salomon Rondon also starts after his exertions with Venezuela and there is a welcome return to the Baggies squad for Chris Brunt

    • 0'
      Good afternoon and welcome along to this Premier League clash here at The Hawthorns between West Bromwich Albion and Tottenham Hotspur. We'll be describing all the action for you as it happens today.
    • 1'
      Tottenham Hotspur get the match underway!
    • 2'
      Spurs as you might expect have started with plenty of confidence and conviction. Getting on the ball and looking to dominate proceedings. West Brom are quite happy to sit deep and allow their visitors to have possession in non-threatening areas.
    • 4'
      Alderweireld sprays a lovely ball out wide and finds Lamela in space but his cross is easily cleared. Spurs regain possession through Kyle Walker who supplies Sissoko but again his delivery from the flank is comfortably headed away.
    • 6'
      Lamela is perhaps fortunate not to be in the book already. He puts in an honest albeit late tackle on Darren Fletcher as he cleared the ball but the referee felt that a free-kick was sufficient punishment on this occasion. Lenient.
    • 7'
      West Brom exert some pressure for the first time this afternoon and do well to keep the ball alive on a few occasions. First Chadli in the inside left position and then Phillips wide on the right. The crosses however aren't quite accurate enough and Spurs are able to hack the ball away. Signs of enc
    • 9'
      With both teams effectively playing 4-5-1 at times it is very congested in midfield with time and space at a premium. Wanyama has continued on his good form so far and is breaking up things well.
    • 11'
      CHANCE! Tottenham could and maybe should be ahead. Janssen did really well to hold the ball up with his back to goal before rolling it into the path of Lamela, who's cross shot was dragged wide of the far post. The Argentinian will be disappointed there - he really should have hit the target and giv
    • 13'
      Sissoko shows all his pace and power down the right wing before being rather unceremoniously upended by James McLean but to the Frenchman's dismay nothing is given. The referee clearly adjudged that the former Newcastle midfielder ran into the Irishman rather than being obstructed.
    • 15'
      A collector's item here, a misplaced diagonal ball from Toby Alderweireld, who was looking to pick out Erik Lamela on the left but the pass was overhit and runs out of play for a goal kick. Before the start of play today no other player in the Premier League had successfully completed from long ball
    • 17'
      It has been a reasonably tentative opening here from both teams. Christian Eriksen stung the palms of Ben Foster from distance just a few moments ago but other than that neither goalkeeper has been called into serious action. Perhaps quite typical for a game just after the international break?
    • 19'
      A rather robust challenge from Nyom on Eriksen is penalised by the referee and gives Spurs the chance to put some pressure on by bringing up the big lads from the back. Eriksen's initial set piece is poor - straight onto the head of a West Brom man but it breaks to Ben Davies who hits a rasping half
    • 21'
      Eriksen's corner is off the mark and West Brom are able to deal with the cross with ease. Chadli is looking to drop a little bit deeper to get on the ball more and start attacks off for the Baggies at the moment.
    • 23'
      Neither striker for either team has seen enough of the ball for their liking so far. Rondon has had nothing to work with while Janssen putting a good shift in without any reward so far. Both manager's will want to see better supply into their respect number nines.
    • 25'
      OVER! Nyom steps inside on the overlap from his left back position and hangs up a decent cross with his favoured right foot which is met by Matt Phillips but he can't keep his header down and the ball loops up harmlessly over Lloris' crossbar.
    • 27'
      WIDE! Janssen and Eriksen combine nicely on the edge of the box with the latter's shot deflected away for a corner. The Dutchman is so strong that he gives Spurs a real platform to build from when he gets the ball into feet. This time Lamela takes the resulting set piece but the result is the same -
    • 29'
      SHOT! This time Toby Alderweireld chances his arm from distance and he isn't too far away but the ball was always swerving away from Ben Foster's goal. Pulis will be reasonably pleased if his side can restrict the visitors to their defenders having potshots from range.
    • 31'
      CHANCE! Dele Alli almost capitalises on Lamela's deflected shot falling into his path but Foster was bright and alert to come out and smother the danger. There were some appeals, mostly from the Spurs fans behind the goal for handball after Lamela's shot was blocked but nothing doing from the refere
    • 33'
      Finally a Spurs free-kick that unsettles the West Brom backline. Lamela whips it into a good area from the left wing and the ball drops to Dele Alli who tees himself up before trying to overhead kick the ball into the bottom corner. His volley is just wide but it wouldn't have counted in any case as
    • 35'
      Tony Pulis will be pleased with the way his side are defending and restricting space for their opponents but they are finding it more and more difficult to relieve the pressure. They need an out ball and an outlet that is sadly lacking at the moment.
    • 37'
      SAVE! Ben Foster keeps the scores level but he really shouldn't have been given a chance. Dele Alli broke clear of the West Brom defence down the left hand channel and drove into the box. The England international looked to open his body up and curl it home with right foot but his shot was completel
    • 39'
      West Brom you suspect are starting to look towards the half-time interval and if they can get in there at 0-0 it will be a job well done. They haven't threatened Hugo Lloris in the Tottenham goal at all and they are being pushed further and further back.
    • 41'
      SAVE! And this time it is a great stop rather than a poor miss on this occasion. Dele Alli takes the ball from Janssen before teeing up Eriksen, who has one touch to set himself before hitting a fizzing low drive that looked destined for the bottom corner but was denied by a brilliant fingertip save
    • 44'
      James McLean is in need of some treatment but it was his own late and wild tackle on Ben Davies that did the damage there. The Republic of Ireland international rightly becomes the first player to be booked. He wasn't in control there at all but it looked like a genuine attempt to play the ball.
    • 45'
      West Bromwich Albion get the second half started!
    • 45'
      There will be two minutes of added time at the end of this first half.
    • 46'
      Tottenham Hotspur straight onto the attack. Alli and Sissoko exchanging passes before Janssen releases Eriksen through the centre. The Danish playmaker pokes the ball into the path of Lamela who rather gets caught in about eight minds and the move breaks down and West Brom breathe again.
    • 48'
      Janssen certainly afraid of putting himself about and this time he goes a little over the top and bundles into Craig Dawson, much to the displeasure of the howling Tony Pulis on the touchline. One slight tactical alteration for Spurs sees Lamela go out onto the right wing and Sissoko come out to the
    • 50'
      A good, positive driving run from James McLean forces a corner for West Brom. Matt Phillips' inswinging cross is a good one and it almost drops at the feet of McAuley inside the six-yard box but Wanyama is alive enough to see the danger and get his foot in.
    • 52'
      No team has scored more goals direct from corners than the Baggies this season (three) and that looks to be their best route to goal this afternoon. McLean and Phillips' deliveries have been very good at times.
    • 54'
      A rather ugly and clumsy, if unintentional foul from Jan Vertonghen rightly earns him a booking for a high foot on his friend and compatriot Nacer Chadli.
    • 56'
      SHOT! McLean's deep cross is towards Rondon, who is well marshalled by Vertonghen the ball does loop up at the back post for Matt Phillips to volley but he can keep his head over the ball and ends up slicing his shot into the grateful arms of Hugo Lloris. Much better start to the second half from We
    • 58'
      Major concern here for Tottenham Hotspur as Toby Alderweireld has remained down for some time now and it doesn't look like he can continue. Vertonghen landed on his teammate and he has come off worse. Probably the one player Spurs can't afford to be without. Eric Dier will come on in his place. Neve
    • 60'
      SI E. Dier SO T. Alderweireld
    • 60'
      England international Eric Dier does indeed come on to replace the injured Alderweireld.
    • 62'
      You wondered how that stoppage would effect both teams. In all honesty it probably came at a better time for Spurs than it did for the Baggies. Tottenham almost creare a glorious chance with Janssen and Eriksen playing a delightful one two before playing in Sissoko, who did well to step inside onto
    • 65'
      SI M. Dembélé SO T. Alderweireld
    • 65'
      That chance was indeed Moussa Sissoko last involvement of the match as he is replaced by fans favourite Mousa Dembele, who was so indispensible to this Tottenham team last season.
    • 67'
      You suspect it won't be much longer before Heung-Min Son is introduced into proceedings. Perhaps a more defensive minded player like Wanyama may be sacrificed? It might also be Vincent Janssen, who has once again worked very hard for the team for little personal reward and that first Premier League
    • 69'
      SI C. Brunt SO T. Alderweireld
    • 69'
      Nice moment here as loyal West Bromwich Albion servant Chris Brunt makes his long awaited return to first team action here in place of Matt Phillips and gets a warm welcome from the Baggies faithful.
    • 71'
      Into the final twenty minutes here - will either side be able to find a precious goal that will surely settle this contest? Tottenham are looking to turn the screw but the Baggies are standing firm and will feel that they may be able to pinch a goal on the break if they play their cards right. Fasci
    • 72'
      SI Heung-Min Son SO T. Alderweireld
    • 72'
      Lamela leaves the field quicker than your average player to allow Heung-Min Son to come on. Will he prove to be the match winner again for Spurs?
    • 73'
      Son is immediately involved as Janssen intelligently heads the ball into his path and he goes straight at his man, Craig Dawson. He beats him on the oustide but his left footed cross is too strong and none of his teammates can get on the end of it.
    • 75'
      Chris Brunt thinks about taking a free-kick but instead leaves it to Nacer Chadli, who whips in an excellent ball that is headed back across the goal by McAuley but there are too many Tottenham bodies in defence and they are able to nod it to safety.
    • 77'
      SHOT! West Brom are dropping even deeper now, which seems like a risky policy with some many minutes left. They invite Christian Eriksen onto them and the Spurs attacking midfielder hits a left foot shot that is deflected onto the top of Ben Foster's goal. Close there for Tottenham.
    • 79'
      West Brom just building up a little ahead of steam here. Throwing the ball into the box more regularly and keeping the bits and pieces alive to keep Spurs under pressure. Darren Fletcher plays a one-two with Rondon but the momentum of the attack is limited by Wanyama.
    • 81'
      With West Brom committing a decent number of players forward for the first real time in the match Spurs have an opportunity to break but Eriksen's flighted through ball is slightly off and Nyom can sweep up.
    • 82'
      G N. Chadli Assist T. Alderweireld
    • 82'
      GOAL! It had to be didn't it?! Nacer Chadli rifles the ball into the roof of the net from close range against his old club. Brunt's deep corner finds James McLean free at the back post who's half volley is tipped onto the post by Lloris but the rebound falls perfectly for Chadli.
    • 84'
      CHANCES! As you might expect, Spurs haven't taken going behind lying down and have been straight on the attack in an attempt to draw themselves level. First Ben Davies has a shot well charged down by Dawson. Then Janssen's speculative shot is almost fumbled into the back of the net by Ben Foster but
    • 86'
      Not Dembélé's finest moment here. After embarking on a trademark dribble he gets to the edge of the box and anticipates contact but throws himself to fall deservedly getting booked. Not cool.
    • 88'
      SI C. Gardner SO T. Alderweireld
    • 88'
      Chadli who looks like being the match winner comes off to a standing ovation and is replaced by Craig Gardner who will look to shore up the West Brom midfield.
    • 89'
      G D. Alli Assist T. Alderweireld
    • 89'
      Heung-Min Son is inevitably involved driving down the left putting in a teasing cross that found Eriksen, who couldn't find the net himself but did enough to fashion a chance for Alli who made no mistake.
    • 89'
      1-1! Alli pops up with yet another vital goal away from home for Spurs. Eriksen looked set to hit the back of the net but his shot was blocked but Dele was on hand to expertly steer the ball home past Chris Brunt on the goalline. Late drama here at The Hawthorns!
    • 90'
      There will be five minutes of time to be added on here. Will we see a winner?
