STAR PLAYER

Boaz Myhill: Came in for the injured Ben Foster but was superb in keeping out a number of Tottenham efforts, most notably Harry Kane’s one-on-one chance in the early stages which he managed to push onto a post. A couple of other stops frustrated Spurs and ultimately cost them a valuable three points in the title race.

MOMENT OF THE MATCH

Craig Dawson: Having unknowingly steered the ball past the impressive Myhill to give Spurs the lead, it would be defender Dawson who would then go on to silence White Hart Lane with West Brom’s sucker-punch of an equaliser. It may have been scrappy but it was enough for the Baggies to leave north London with a point and could help hand the title to Leicester in just six days’ time.

VIEW FROM THE BENCH

Mauricio Pochettino took the ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’ approach by sending out an unchanged side bursting with momentum. They laboured at times against a defensive outfit but deserved their win. Tony Pulis spent much of the game bellowing to his players and they responded with an unlikely point.

MOAN OF THE MATCH

Tottenham struggled to break down a strong defensive unit and toiled for much of the evening. They may have hit the woodwork on three occasions but, especially in the second half, they just lacked the creativity to truly worry a West Brom side set up to get the point they duly departed with.
