Stoke relegated from EPL, Spurs beaten

Stoke relegated from EPL, Spurs beaten

West Brom hope of remaining in the Premier League got a huge boost with a hard-fought 1-0 victory against Tottenham at the Hawthorn on Saturday.

Worryingly for Leicester manager Claude Puel, the last time that the Foxes went three Premier League games without scoring a goal came in February 2017. Joao Mario's free kick was cleared by Aleksandar Dragovic as far as Noble, who struck the ball first time from 25 yards (meters) out and his shot flew into the bottom corner of the net.

"The key is to be more aggressive and to be clinical in front of goal is our challenge, because I think this type of game, with the chances, possession, the possibility to play in the last third or in the opposite, half, we need to create more - more one-on-ones, be more aggressive, run forward in behind their defence".

The outstretched Ayoze Perez expertly redirected Javier Manquillo's whipped cross for his sixth league goal to get his side back into the match in the 55th minute.

The hosts absorbed plenty of pressure at the Hawthorns but posed a set-piece threat throughout, with their reward a scrambled victor from England midfielder Livermore in the 92nd minute.

The Baggies needed to beat Spurs to stand a chance of staying in the Premier League and left it late at The Hawthorns.

West Brom are still two points from safety and need to rely on their relegation rivals slipping up, but Moore senses that the mood around the club has changed. 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.

Harry Kane went closest for the visitors in the first half and nearly scored an own goal after the break.

Tottenham, losing 1-0 to the league's bottom feeders, continued their run of poor form with one of the worst performances of the season.

Tottenham's defeat left them fourth on 71 points and gave Chelsea new hope that they might steal the fourth Champions league spot if they can move on 69 points by beating Liverpool at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

In the first half of few clear-cut chances, Kane had the best of Spurs' opportunities and his header from Erik Lamela's cross was saved by Ben Foster. "The club asked me to take charge for the six games".

Alfie Mawson fouled Wilson on the edge of the area and Andrew Surman squared the free kick to Fraser, whose first-time effort took a slight nick off Mawson and sailed past Lukasz Fabianski. The unlikeliest is a Stoke win over Swansea, with the Potters already relegated.

The first of Swansea's two remaining games is against Southampton, in a clash which could decide the fates of both teams.

Substitute Nathan Redmond's first goal in nearly a year appeared to put the fight very much back in Saints' hands as it would have left them needing a win at fellow struggler Swansea on Tuesday to guarantee safety.
