90' 

West Brom have huffed and puffed but they've never looked like getting anything from this game.

89' 

This is just what the doctor ordered for Spurs with a crucial FA Cup clash at Everton in midweek, followed by a trip to PL leaders Man City next Sunday.

87' 
85' 

West Brom are looking pretty doomed. They will be 11 points off safety having played a game more than most of their rivals. It'll also be just one win in 13 league outings.

83' 

More frustration for Diagne. He chests down a right-wing ball and fires beyond Lloris - but he's offside again!

82' 

As it stands, Spurs will move up to seventh, although Chelsea will play later and how close they edge towards the top four will depend on results for Liverpool and Leicester.

West Brom are trying to apply some pressure and find a way back into this - but it's leaving gaps that Spurs are very capable of exploiting on the break.

West Brom think they have one back - but the flag is up! Diagne nods in Snodgrass' cross, but he is a yard or two offside.

A bit more on what goal number 208 means in terms of Spurs' history.

55' 

That's Kane's 208th goal for Spurs - and boy did they need it. He makes such a difference to this side.

  • Harry Kane

GOAL! Kane is left in too much space on the left of the WBA box. Højbjerg threads it through for him and the striker makes no mistake this time with a low shot into the far corner.

53' 
51' 

Aurier horribly miscues a 20-yard volley and West Brom are able to clear after Lamela's delivery from the resulting free kick was only nodded to the edge of the area.

50' 

Sawyers is cautioned for fouling the lively Lamela on the right wing.

49' 
48' 

Lamela dances beyond two challenges on a foray into the box. He darts to his right to take on a third defender, but then lacks any conviction with his tame shot across goal.

47' 

CLOSE! Johnstone is immediately called into action as he denies Son with his left boot after Kane had sent his strike partner charging clear.

  • 2nd Half

KICK OFF! West Brom restart the contest.

  • End of 1st Half
45+1' 

HT: Spurs 0-0 WBA.

45' 

BRILLIANT STOP! Snodgrass leads a counter down the right. He cuts inside and crosses for Diagne, but his firm header is superbly saved by Lloris.

43' 
41' 

Johnstone makes another fine stop. This time he keeps out Aurier at the far post after a left-wing corner was flicked on.

39' 

West Brom's kit is getting some humorous comments on social - but they won't care if they end up earning something from this game. All hands to the pump at present though. Spurs are well on top.

37' 

Kane takes Lucas Moura's pass on the right side of the area and wastes little time in rasping in a thumping attempt that Johnstone does well to palm away at his near post.

36' 

A sensational diagonal ball from deep from Kane threatens to unlock the Baggies defence. Davies and then Son work it back for NDombele, but his low effort towards the far corner is blocked.

34' 
32' 
31' 

RANDOM STAT: Mourinho has not come up against West Brom in a home match since his then-Manchester United team were defeated 1-0 in 2018.

29' 
27' 

Spurs have looked very sharp down that right flank. Aurier is surging forward for fun, while Lamela is drifting in from that touchline to prompt and pose a threat.

25' 

Spurs have a large number of players forward. Kane drops deep and tries to outfox two defenders. He's easily tackled and his teammates are forced to scamper back. He's looked a tad rusty so far, even though he's not been out too long.

23' 
22' 

Spurs have had 66 per cent of possession and have managed to get one of their four efforts on target. They've been bright and Jose would have probably expected Kane to have taken one of the opportunities he's had.

20' 

West Brom are creaking. Diagne makes a vital last-ditch challenge to deny Lamela a tap-in after the visitors struggled to deal with a right-wing corner.

19' 

Aurier wins the ball high up the pitch. Lamela takes over and lays it through for Kane again, but he has to check and sees his eventual attempt deflect away.

18' 

NDombele's purposeful ball forward misses Son but falls perfectly for Kane. The Spurs talisman looks to be in but drags wide of the far post from a good position on the left side of the box.

17' 

STAT: The Baggies have not kept an away clean sheet in 2020-21.

15' 

WOODWORK! Lamela and Aurier do well down the right and feed the ball across to Kane. The striker takes aim from 20 yards but sees his firm strike clip the bar and fly wide.

13' 

JOSE v SAM: Allardyce has not managed to defeat Mourinho in their 12 Premier League meetings. He has drawn three and lost on nine occasions.

11' 

Lamela drags Aurier's pass on to his left foot and curls a decent effort just over the top.

10' 

Son tries his luck from distance but it's food and drink for Johnstone.

9' 

Another lovely move down the left from the visitors. This time a delightful cross from Townsend is floated into the middle, but Diagne can't quite crane his neck enough to direct a header under the bar.

8' 

Will the Big Sam effect eventually kick in? It hasn't so far...

7' 

Conor Townsend finds himself in plenty of space on the left. He makes the most of it and whips in a dangerous cross that Maitland-Niles is a whisker away from getting a foot on at the far post.

6' 
4' 

Spurs have been lively from the off. Mourinho clearly wants a fast start, but so far West Brom have had plenty of bodies back defending that 18-yard line.

3' 
2' 

H2H: Given West Brom’s record at Spurs, Mourinho’s men will be hopeful of completing a first league double over the Baggies since 2011-12. The Midlands outfit have picked up just one victory in their past 14 visits to Tottenham in all competitions (D6, L7). That solitary success came in the top-flight and was by a 1-0 scoreline in September 2014.

KICK OFF! Spurs get us up and running.

11.55 

DID YOU KNOW? Baggies keeper, Sam Johnstone has let in 50 Premier League goals in his first 21 games. That's the joint-quickest a stopper has ever conceded that total in the competition's history.

Mourinho on Kane's return to the Spurs side: "We had immediately good news after the injury, knowing it was not as difficult as initially feared. He recovered very, very well. He's confident and feels absolutely fine and, of course, he's a fundamental player for us."

There's no Dele Alli for Tottenham. Mourinho says they now have common ground, so it'll be interesting to see if we do get a 'good Dele Alli' (in Jose's words) in the weeks and months ahead.

Super Son will no doubt be delighted to be back in tandem with a certain Mr Kane today. Will the South Korean star continue his love of facing newly promoted sides?

11.35 

Mourinho: "I put pressure on myself every day. I don’t need others to put pressure on me. I put pressure on myself every day. Every day. So since 2012 without three defeats in a row? But since when without a title? Maybe I can give one.”

Sam Allardyce on facing old foe, Jose: "Sometimes when you're the underdog and it pays off there's some obvious delight in that. But the big thing is not what I'm doing against Jose, or what Jose's doing against me. The big thing is the concentration of the team and getting a result, that's the ultimate focus and saying to the players this is the best way.”

The transfer window may have shut, but the rumour mill never stops! Amongst this week's Euro Papers videos, Spurs have been linked with an ex-Arsenal man.

Hugo Loris: “It’s been three games in a row with the taste of defeat, but I think we are close to being back. We have to bring consistency into our performances.”

11.15 

Maitland-Niles: “We’re in a tough situation at the moment. I wanted to be a part of the fight. I wanted to grit my teeth and get down and dirty and see I come out of it. I want to come out on top of it and I want the club to come out on top of it. Hopefully I’m a player who can help this club survive in the Premier League.”

So, Kane's early return is a MASSIVE boost for Spurs. Meanwhile, WBA make five changes with Ainsley Maitland-Niles making his bow following his loan move from Arsenal. Romaine Sawyers, Karlan Grant, Conor Gallagher and Lee Peltier also feature while another loan recruit, Okay Yokuslu will hope to make an appearance from the bench.
