Mauricio Pochettino rages at wasteful Tottenham after West Brom defeat

West Bromwich Albion kept their slim survival hopes alive after Jake Livemore's dramatic injury time goal earned a 1-0 win against Tottenham Hotspur.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino is pleased that the Premier League's top four teams are guaranteed a Champions League group stage spot next season following Arsenal's Europa League exit on Thursday. However, anything other than a win will doom to the Championship.

West Brom 1-0 Tottenham Roberto Pereyra scored the opener and turned provider for Andre Gray as Watford hung on to edge Newcastle, 2-1 at Vicarage Road.

Moore, with Albion two points from safety with a game left, said: "I really do hope so".

West Brom came from 2-0 down to rescue a point in a 2-2 draw with Liverpool FC at The Hawthorns last month. Ahead of their latest meeting on Saturday, The Hard Tackle takes a closer look at the encounter.

And the boss' reaction to Livermore's goal was quite astounding, with Moore remaining the calmest man in the stadium.

Gareth Barry (knee) and James Morrison (achilles) will not play another game this season due to their respective problems.

And just a few minutes later some more pressure from West Brom led to a corner and Ahmed Hegazi nearly headed in Matt Phillips' whipped cross, but it went just wide.

Tottenham began to find joy behind Albion's defence and Foster saved with his face when Kane escaped onto Kieran Trippier's pass. The mental side is 50-50 with the fitness.

Spurs dominated at The Hawthorns, having 75 percent of possession and 18 shots to West Brom's nine, but they squandered a host of chances, with Ben Foster saving well from Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen.

Darren Moore has already won more Premier League games in four matches (2) than Alan Pardew did in 18 in charge of the Baggies (1), though both victories have been away from home.

Kane's penalty box instincts nearly spectacularly backfired on Tottenham when he sliced Hegazi's header goalwards in the 74th minute - Hugo Lloris' lightning reactions sparing his team-mate.

Hustling for a win.

Substitute Grzegorz Krychowiak thrashed over at the back post in the 89th minute but West Brom would not be denied.

Xherdan Shaqiri put the home side in front with a free-kick after 43 minutes of Saturday's lunchtime game. Jay Rodriguez is likely to be a big factor going forward for West Brom, and it won't be a surprise to see him on the score sheet once again.
