West Bromwich Albion 1-1 Tottenham Hotspur: Points split at the Hawthorns

1 Comment

You’ll read the score line and imagine another bore draw engineered by Tony Pulis‘ Baggies, but the Hawthorns was the scene for an entertaining match on Saturday morning.

Spurs failed in their quest to invade the Top Four after a 1-1 draw against West Brom, with Dele Alli scoring for the visitors before James McClean evened things up.

Tottenham stays fifth, with 26 points. West Brom has 18 points and sits 13th in the Premier League.

Spurs took the lead when Alli got on the end of a tremendous long ball from Toby Alderweireld to slap a one-touch shot past Boaz Myhill.

But the Baggies came back to equalize after Darren Fletcher carried a ball to the end line and cut back a great cross for McClean to head home.
