West Brom - The Hawthorns

Tottenham Hotspur have scraped a 3-3 draw against West Brom this afternoon.

What a weekend at The Hawthorns once again - as West Brom threw away a 3-0 lead against Tottenham to draw 3-3 at home for the second time in a row.

The picture above is of Emmanuel Adebayor and Harry Kane, shoulders slumped and dejected faces after The Baggies took an astonishing 2-0 lead after just four minutes.

It took Matej Vydra less than 30 seconds to give his side the lead - and then it was the work of Chris Brunt, smashing in a half-volley at the far post that did the damage.

Tottenham soon found themselves 3-0 down after Stephane Sessegnon scored - but that was not before Adebayor had one of those moments from 12 yards out.

You would think Christian Eriksen has the mind-set for such a circumstance - but instead it was the Togolese striker who stepped up - before rolling the ball back to Ben Foster.

Overall it was a woeful defensive performance from Spurs - and somehow they got away with it.

Goals from Kane and Eriksen added to the earlier own goal and Spurs clawed away a barely deserved point.

But the performance would certainly have done no favours to Tim Sherwood in his pursuit of the job permanently.
