Tottenham striker, Harry Kane scored a late equaliser to deny West Brom a vital win in a matchday 13 Premier League encounter at Wembley on Saturday.
West Brom, without manager Tony Pulis, got ahead of the game when Jake Livermore played in Salomon Rondon, who nudged off Davinson Sanchez and scored.
The visitors led from four minutes till the 74th minute when England forward Kane finally broke their resistance by tapping a Dele Alli cross through Ben Foster’s legs to level both sides.
Kane’s equaliser denied West Brom a first win in any competition since August as they are now 12 games without a win, a point ahead of 18th placed West Ham.
Spurs are now 10 points behind leaders Manchester City, and five points behind second-placed Manchester United, who edged battling Brighton and Hove Albion at Old Trafford also on Saturday.
Brighton had been the better team up until the 66th minute when Ashley Young’s shot from the edge of the area was hugely deflected by Lewis Dunk before looping over the goalkeeper into the net.
The Red Devils’ win cuts City’s lead at the top of the Premier League table to five points at least till the Pep Guardiola’s side play at Huddersfield on Sunday.
In the other Premier League games on Saturday, Crystal Palace came from behind to secure a 2-1 win over Stoke City; Watford thumped Newcastle 3-0, while Swansea City drew goalless at home with Bournemouth.
Liverpool play champions Chelsea later in the day.
