Posted by

The Republic of Ireland international headed home after 39 minutes of Saturday’s Premier League encounter, to cancel out Dele Alli’s opener.

West Brom – in typical Tony Pulis style – started the game very defensively, but they came out of their shell following Alli’s third club goal of the season, which came courtesy of a 15th-minute volley.

The hosts deserve their half-time parity on what is an extremely windy December day in the Black Country.

Spurs like to play beautiful football, but these conditions are making it tough. Do Mauricio Pochettino’s men have what it takes to scrap out an ugly victory?

Three points for Tottenham would take them to within one point of Manchester City, who lost 2-0 at Stoke City earlier today.
