Jake Livermore’s last-gasp goal give West Brom survival hopes

Jake Livermore’s last-gasp goal gave West Brom a victory against Tottenham which ensures they still have a chance of avoiding Premier League relegation.

Livermore forced the ball over the line in the 91st minute with relegation certain had they lost or drawn at The Hawthorns.

Just hours later, the Baggies were seconds from relegation again when Southampton were denied victory over Everton by a 96th-minute Tom Davies’ equaliser.

A Saints win would have sent West Brom down but they can still stay up if a series of results go their way.

In a first half of few clear-cut chances, Harry Kane had the best of Spurs’ opportunities and his header from Erik Lamela’s cross was saved by Ben Foster.

West Brom’s Jay Rodriguez went close as half-time approached, sneaking in behind Victor Wanyama only for his header to be cleared off the line.

Kane nearly became the Baggies’ hero when a mis-hit clearance almost flew into the back of his own net with Hugo Lloris acrobatically keeping it out.

Tottenham’s Danny Rose and West Brom’s Allan Nyom were both booked following a second-half altercation, with Nyom’s team-mates desperately trying to keep the defender calm to avoid a red card in the aftermath.

And The Hawthorns exploded when Livermore found the back of the net after a scramble from a corner.
