Full time: Tottenham 1-1 West Brom

Leicester City will win the Premier League title if they beat Manchester United on Sunday. Tottenham Hotspur are held by West Brom and fall seven points behind with three games left. Leicester need three points from their final three games to secure their first ever league title. Incredible thing to think, ever after all that has occurred this season. Craig Dawson scored for both teams, putting Spurs ahead in the first half before capitalising on Hugo Lloris' error to level. The look on the faces of the Spurs players tells you all you need to know, they feel it has gone.

Well, that is all we have time for on this Premier League live text. we'll be back tomorrow will live coverage of Man City vs Real Madrid from the Etihad Stadium, but as for tonight it is goodbye.


Now a free-kick for West Brom. Less than two minutes left. Leicester are nearly 90 minutes from the title.


Which comes to nothing. Myhill comes out and takes an easy catch. it has been that sort of second half for the hosts.


Corner for Tottenham.......


Five minutes added on at White Hart Lane. Not long for Tottenham to breathe new life into their title challenge.


Alli off and Chadli on for Spurs. A minute plus stoppage time left at the Lane.


No doubt that the best chances to win this game have come for West Brom, since the equaliser. Sessegnon has the latest, hitting the side-netting. The Baggies are restricting Tottenham for room around the penalty area, suffocating them in pursuit of a second.


Atmosphere is very tense around White Hart Lane, and as well it might be with Tottenham's title challenge threatening to be snuffed out. They may as well go all out to win this game, knowing avoiding to win would open the door for Leicester. Free-kick for Tottenham but Eriksen skies it over.


Goal: Tottenham 1-1 West Brom (Craig Dawson)

Tottenham's title bid extinguished? Lloris tips over Rondon's shot and from the subsequent corner the Frenchman comes to claim the ball, gets nowhere near it and Dawson nods into the empty net. Just 18 minutes remaining and it looks as though Eric Dier is coming off too.


West Brom win a corner and from it Spurs break. Alli sends a raking ball towards the onrushing Eriksen, but Myhill comes out to meet it and heads to relative safety. That second goal just won't come for Spurs as we enter the final quarter.


Mousa Dembele is the latest Spurs player to take aim, shooting wide from 25 yards. Lots of praise of the Belgian tonight, who has really been a real presence in midfield this season.


A West Brom equaliser here and coupled with a imminent ban for Dele Alli you could go ahead and etch Leicester's name on that Premier League title. That leveller almost comes as Rondon nods wide. Best chance of the night for the Baggies and their dominance has swelled since the hour mark.


The woodwork denies Tottenham for a third time as Eriksen scampers past Yacob and tees up Lamela who hits the inside of the post. Spurs just can't put this game to bed; can West Brom take advantage?


You would expect The FA will take another look at that Alli incident, if indeed referee Mike Jones did not see the episode. A three-game ban would see Alli ruled out for the rest of the season., and the rest of the title run-in.


Could Dele Alli face action over this? Looks like a punch on Claudio Yacob.


Back underway at White Hart Lane.


Half time: Tottenham 1-0 West Brom

Spurs are going to within five points of Leicester after easing into a one-goal half time lead against a lifeless West Brom. Craig Dawson's own goal separates the two sides, but their is a major chasm between the two sides in terms of intent, with West Brom very happy to sit back and soak up pressure. Will their game plan change as they pursue an equaliser? For all of our sakes, I hope it does.


Kyle Walker perhaps a tad fortunate to escape punishment after flicking out at Rondon on the touchlne after a clash between thee two players. West Brom have gradually improved as this half as progressed [though it could hardly have got worse] but their first corner of the game only ends with a Yacob shots which is deflected on its way through to Lloris.


The hosts again contribute to their own problems as Dier gives the ball away to Rondon inaside his own half, but West Brom can't test Lloris. Only thing that can cost Spurs now is complacency, with the Baggies offering nothing.


Tottenham take a real chance inside their own penalty area as Vertonghen and then Alderweireld attempt to play their way out from the back. Kyle Walker uses his pace to run the ball out as West Brom pressed hard in an attempt to win the ball back.


Goal: Tottenham 1-0 West Brom (Craig Dawson own goal)

Finally the deadlock is broken and there hasn't been a messier goal all season. Eriksen's free-kick is perfectly weighted and as Vertonghen closed in, Craig Dawson slipped and the ball squirmed past Myhill. Will surely go down as an own goal.


A sign if there ever needed to be one that West Brom are very happy with what they have already is that they are wasting time over ever set piece AFTER JUST 29 MINUTES. This really is a team with eyes on their holidays. Craig Gardner does fashion one chance however, lashing the ball high over the bar.


Harry Kane attempts to make amends for his earlier miss and forces a good low save from Myhill, who you fancy will be kept very busy tonight. West Brom flooding their own half.


West Brom were admirably enterprising when they held Leicester at the King Power Stadium a couple of weeks ago but they are offering very little as an attacking force this evening. tony Pulis demanded more from his team after the defeat to Arsenal, but hard to argue he is getting it so far.
