Late Kane Strike Seals Spurs' Third Straight League Win

Premier League

Result: West Bromwich Albion 0-1 Tottenham Hotspur

Date: 08 November 2020

Venue: The Hawthornes

Harry Kane's late goal sent Tottenham Hotspur top of the Premier League after defeating West Bromwich Albion on Sunday afternoon.

For the first time in the league this season, Jose Mourinho started with Harry Kane, Heung-min Son and Gareth Bale in the attack.

Son should have opened the scoring on 13 minutes after picked out by Tanguy Ndombele, but the South Korean took too many touches before seeing shot blocked.

West Brom had a couple openings of their own as the first half dragged on, with Karlan Grant going closest with a glancing header that sailed wide of Hugo Lloris' post.

Despite Spurs' dominance in the first half, they were unable to find a way past a stubborn West Brom defence in the opening 45 minutes.

Dara O'Shea went close for West Brom shortly after the break with a header that sailed just wide of the upright while Kane sent a header wide at the other end.

The hosts went agonisingly close on 69 minutes when Connor Gallagher skipped past two players before rattling the woodwork with a strike from distance.

With the game looked to be headed for a draw, Kane popped up with the winning goal in the 88th minute after flicking the ball over the advancing Sam Johnstone.
