Full time: Tottenham 4-0 West Brom

Tottenham pile the pressure on Chelsea and go second in the Premier League after thrashing a woeful West Brom. Harry Kane marks the week in which he became a father for the first time with a hat-trick, in between Gareth McAuley's own goal. The Baggies have been dreadful and they must go again in an effort to cement their top half status.

GOAL! Tottenham 4-0 West Brom (Harry Kane)

Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant from Tottenham and Harry Kane gets the hat-trick that he deserves. Dele Alli flicks the ball into his path and on the volley he diverts the ball beyond Foster. Fabulous goal to cap a fine display.

Another horror show from West Brom as Gareth McAuley fails to clear and with Ben Foster out of position, Kyle Walker crosses for Kane who converts with aplomb. Too easy.


Injury to Jan Vertonghen has deflated the atmosphere somewhat.

Ben Davies come on for Vertionghen, who appears to have suffered a recurrence of the injury which kept him out of Euro 2016. Horrible for him.


Jan Vertonghen in trouble on the far touchline as he goes over on his left ankle trying to keep the ball in play. The Belgian looks distraught as the realisation of the situation hits him.


Nacer Chadli's miserable afternoon is over, as he is replaced by Hal Robson Kanu.


Foster doing his status as the England number three no harm here and he once again saves from Harry Kane from a shot from outside the penalty area. the third goal is a matter of time surely?


Ben Foster called into action not once, but twice as West Brom claw on hope they can stage a comeback. Toby Alderweireld is first denied by an outstretched leg before Foster parries from Kane. Tottenham back into their stride.


Penalty for Tottenham? Nothing doing as Craig Dawson gets himself in a mess and hauls down Dele Alli, but the referee waves away the appeals. Looks nailed on, for me.


Better from West Brom at the start of this second half. Matt Phillips has already gone close and now cross from the left causes problems, but Rondon can't make anything of it.


Second half underway at White Hart Lane. Meanwhile, the tweet of the year competition may be over.


Half time: Tottenham 2-0 West Brom

Spurs look to be closing the gap to Chelsea after cruising into a two-goal lead against West Brom. Harry Kane's opener has been added to by Gareth McAuley's own goal to give Mauricio Pochettino's side complete control at the break. The Baggies have been dreadful, inexplicably bad and failed to have a shot on goal. The game looks gone for them, so now it is a case of how many Spurs can get.

West Brom fans are often derided for wanting rid of Tony Pulis, but on this evidence you can understand why. The visitors set themselves up for the draw from the outset and clearly have no plan B. Those couple of thousand who made the trip down from the Midlands to north London will be wondering why they bothered. No attempts on goal in the first half....


Ben Foster to the rescue again as he turns Kane's shot onto the post. The Baggies 'keeper in inspired form, to retain some of West Brom's dignity.


Ben Foster keeps out Kane, who could have had a hat-trick in this first half. Tottenham have totally dominated this halve, and they should be out of sight.


Christian Eriksen wheels away as Tottenham double their lead.

Almost a third goal for Tottenham. Eriksen clips a beautiful ball over the top for Alli, and despite toe-poking beyond Foster he was in an offside position. Sumptuous football from the hosts, and West Brom can't live with them.


GOAL! Tottenham 2-0 West Brom (Gareth McAuley own goal)

Tottenham are running riot right now and the second comes before the half hour. Christian Eriksen's shot is deflected twice, the second touch coming off Gareth McAuley and wrong-footing Ben Foster.


How are Tottenham not two-up? Wanyama's cross finds Kane completely unmarked, six yards out, but somehow he can't make proper contact and West Brom escape.


Kane celebrates putting Tottenham into an early lead.

A glimmer of a chance for West Brom as Olsson heads the ball across the face of goal for Rondon, who is denied by Lloris, but the linesman's flag had already gone up from the original cross. The Baggies' game plan has been torn up here and they're going to have to stat showing more going forward.
