West Brom - The Hawthorns

West Brom pegged Tottenham back to draw 1-1 at The Hawthorns.

Tottenham missed the opportunity to move in to the top four after drawing 1-1 with West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns this afternoon.

After watching Manchester City lose at Stoke City earlier in the day, many noted that Tottenham could in fact win the Premier League if they continued their impressive form.

And it looked like Mauricio Pochettino's men could be on course for yet another win, as Toby Alderweireld's raking long pass was turned in to the net by teenage midfielder Dele Alli.

In an end-to-end game at times, West Brom hit back before half time as James McClean headed home from close range following neat interplay down the right hand side.

After the break, both teams searched for a winner, and Harry Kane's shot from inside the six yards box trickled towards the goal but was hacked off the line.

For the Baggies, Jonas Olsson forced an outstanding save from Hugo Lloris, before the Frenchman was called in to action again to stop a low drive from Salomon Rondon.

The game finished 1-1 though, and that is now Tottenham's eighth draw of the season - by far the most in the Premier League. Meanwhile, West Brom remain in 13th place after a second 1-1 draw in a row.
