West Bromwich Albion won 1-0 against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon.

West Bromwich Albion won 1-0 against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane as Spurs' Europa League hangovers showed no signs of ending.

A goal from James Morrison in the 74th minute gave the Baggies their first win of the season, and eased the pressure on Alan Irvine after he had seen his side drop to the bottom of the Premier League table following Saturday's results.

West Brom had other chances to score, and Tottenham will be disappointed with their efforts after their early season form began to look like a distant memory.

Mauricio Pochettino's side have now taken just a single point from their last three league matches, and the most damning statistic from Sunday's game is that the home side had just a single attempt on target in the entire match.

The result means West Brom climb up to 15th in the table, while Spurs drop to ninth.
