Tick-tock, tick-tock... time is running out for both sides. Jonny Evans has been booked for a professional foul, by the way.


Five additional minutes. Time for a winner? We're about to find out...

GOAL: West Bromwich Albion 1-1 Tottenham Hotspur (Alli)

Spurs have an equaliser and it's Dele Alli who shows incredible composure under pressure in the box to toe-poke the ball into the far corner.

That was mature stuff from the 20-year-old star, who was determined not to be rushed despite being surrounded by defenders. Brilliant, that.

Another change for the hosts, who are intent on protecting what they've got now. You can't blame them, either.


Spurs have five minutes to save their unbeaten record. More importantly, they have five minutes to ensure they don't drop three precious points in the Premier League title race.

GOAL: West Bromwich Albion 1-0 Tottenham Hotspur (Chadli)

The hosts hit the front! Nacer Chadli has scored against his former club, ramming the ball home from close range after a brilliant save at his near post from Hugo Lloris.

The keeper does amazingly well to keep a headed effort out of his net, but Chadli is there to sweep the ball home. What an incredible game this has been.

Brunt drills a low, hard cross into the six-yard box that is turned behind for another corner. Suddenly, the hosts are on top in this game.


The home fans are roaring the WBA players on. They're desperate for a late goal at The Hawthorns.

West Brom win a free-kick in a dangerous position. Chadli loops it around the back to find McClean, but his headed centre is easily cleared by the Tottenham defenders.

Time is running out for a winning goal. Less than 15 minutes remaining in the Midlands.


Less than 20 minutes left at The Hawthorns. There has not been a scoreless draw in the league between these two since the 1960s - is that about to change?

More subs now. Chris Brunt comes on for Matt Phillips. He gets a terrific reception on his return from injury.

Son is introduced by Spurs, too. He has been brilliant of late - and has replaced Erik Lamela, who squandered a decent opening early on.

Speaking of subs, Dembele is introduced in place of Sissoko, who has run his race for the day. Spurs have less than 30 minutes to find a deserved winner.

Tottenham are camped on the edge of the West Brom box for a few minutes - but they're really struggling to fashion any openings.

Here's a reminder of the Spurs bench at the start of the game...


Nope. Looks like they'll need to make a substitution. A stretcher is coming on, which is never a good sign.

Eric Dier is poised to replace him.

Another semi-opening for WBA, which falls to Matty Phillips, but he gets his effort all wrong at the vital moment.

Meanwhile, Toby Alderweireld has gone down with a worrying-looking injury. He appears to run into Jan Vertonghen. Can he continue?


WBA are looking to be a bit more positive in the opening minutes of the half. They are launching the occasional counter-attack, which would've been an alien thought in the first period.

Jan Vertonghen has gone into the book, meanwhile, for a high tackle against Chadli. He can have no complaints.


James McClean wins a corner for the hosts. The cross is slung into the middle of the box but no-one can poke the loose ball home and Tottenham survive.

WBA look a real threat from setpieces, it has to be said.

We're back under way at The Hawthorns. Forty-five minutes for Tottenham (or WBA) to find a goal. Here we go...

Half-time: West Bromwich Albion 0-0 Tottenham Hotspur

Goalless at the break, then, but goodness knows how. Spurs have been very good in spots, but have been wasteful in front of goal.

Ben Foster, meanwhile, is half way towards winning the man of the match crown. Back for more in a bit...

Out of nowhere, WBA almost take a shock lead at The Hawthorns. The hosts appeared certain to score through Rondon after Lloris spilled an effort from McClean. The Frenchman made amends with a subsequent save, though.


Two additional minutes to come, in what's been a very, very one-sided opening 45 minutes.

Ben Foster comes to WBA's rescue. Again. This time, the keeper saves a low, powerful effort from Christian Eriksen expertly.

A minute later, James McClean commits a very naughty-looking tackle against Ben Davies, who does well to avoid the challenge. The WBA man is lucky to escape any punishment for that.

Tottenham have made a little tactical change for the last five minutes of the half, with Lamela and Sissoko swapping wings.
