West Brom beat Spurs to keep hopes alive

Premier League - West Bromwich Albion vs Tottenham Hotspur

Jake Livermore bundles in late winner to give the Baggies vital 1-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur

West Bromwich Albion kept alive their hopes of a dramatic escape from relegation with a last-gasp 1-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur

Jake Livermore got the winner at The Hawthorns in the second minute of stoppage time to lift West Brom to 19th, two points behind 17th-placed Swansea City who lost at AFC Bournemouth.

In the first half Ben Foster saved well from Victor Wanyama and Harry Kane, who nearly scored an own goal after the break. 

Knowing only a win would prevent them from going down, the hosts went on the front foot and were rewarded.

In a goalmouth scramble from a corner, Livermore pounced to extend Darren Moore's unbeaten run as caretaker manager to five matches. 

Spurs remain fourth, five points ahead of Chelsea, who host Liverpool on Sunday.
