Tottenham dropped more points at home as Mauricio Pochettino‘s men drew 1-1 with West Brom on Saturday at Wembley.

With just one win in their last four PL games, Spurs fell behind early with Salomon Rondon on target for managerless West Brom.

Harry Kane equalized with 15 minutes to go but Spurs’ title hopes appear all but over after another disappointing draw at home following draws with Burnley and Swansea earlier this season at Wembley.

The Baggies had an incredible start as Rondon stunned Wembley after a bad giveaway from Dele Alli saw him played in and he finished calmly to make it 1-0.

Spurs struggled to recover from that early blow.

Harry Kane dragged a shot wide as Spurs pushed hard for an equalizer but, predictably, West Brom sat back and soaked up pressure for most of the first half.

They were dangerous on the break but Spurs almost went level right on half time as Heung-Min Son‘s deflected shot landed on top of the net.

In the second half West Brom had to deal with wave after wave of Tottenham attack and eventually they conceded.

Dele Alli picked up the ball on the right and sent in a precise cross which Kane flicked home at the near post 15 minutes from time. 1-1. Game on.

Spurs were inches away from taking the lead with less than 10 minutes to go as Kane rose highest but his header flew just over the bar.

That was as close as Spurs would come to winning it as Pochettino cut a frustrated figure on the sidelines.
