West Brom Dramatically Defeat Spurs To Keep Survival Hopes Alive

Southampton have 32 points, with three games to play, while Swansea have 33 with two games left, including a home match against Southampton on Tuesday.

Elsewhere, a resurgent West Brom rallied to pull off a stonking 1-0 win over Tottenham at the Hawthorns to keep their slim chances of avoiding the drop alive going into their final game of the season.

Victory for Southampton at Everton will still send West Brom down to the Championship along with already-relegated Stoke City but Moore is not concerning himself with events at Goodison Park.

A 92nd-minute victor from Jake Livermore ensures that Darren Moore's rejuvenated mob will live to fight another day - though only because Southampton conceded a 94th-minute equaliser against Everton in the late kick-off.

"We've come together and I know I get to speak on behalf of the football club but it's not me, it's we and we've come together at the end of the season and shown what can be achieved with hard work and commitment".

"I really do hope so". If we don't score, OK, next, next, next.' I think we need to realise we need to be more aggressive from the beginning and don't wait, and to score if we have the chances, and then manage the game.

"The important thing for me is that we come together for the importance of the club, if we do that we'll make the right decisions for the future".

"I won't be watching the games", he told BBC Sport.

Spurs carried the greater threat and Ben Foster needed to be alert when Erik Lamela threatened before he palmed away Christian Eriksen's free kick after 62 minutes.

Their relegation after weeks of defying the prophets of doom seemed assured as the game against Spurs went into added time but Livermore forced the ball over the line from close range in a manic finish.

"I don't believe it's a wake-up call", he said.

"Everyone can see that we dominated the game but, if you are not clinical in front of goal, it's always open".

Meanwhile Pochettino will now assess the fitness of Jan Vertonghen, who limped off with an ankle injury as he denied suggestions Saturday's surprise result could help stir his side.

The win for West Brom means that the Baggies are now second from bottom in the Premier League table with 31 points from 37 matches, while Tottenham are currently fourth in the standings with 71 points from 36 games.
