West Bromwich Albion v Tottenham Hotspur - Premier League
West Bromwich Albion beat Tottenham Hotspur at the Hawthorns

Tottenham Hotspur travelled to the Hawthorns to take on relegation-threatened West Brom side hours after Stoke City were relegated from England's top flight after getting beaten at home by Crystal Palace.

The Baggies were rock bottom before the start of play and needed to win both their games and hope those around them fail to do the same if they were to have any chance of surviving in the Premier League for another campaign.

They did their bit on the night as they managed to steal all three points against the side from London owing to a late injury-time winner from the former Spurs man Jake Livermore.

Here are the major takeaways:

Jake Livermore scored the winner.

Jake Livermore had a forgettable time at White Hart Lane in the white for Tottenham and failed to make any kind of impact on the fans or the management.

The Englishman started his career with the North London outfit for their U-18 side and made his way through the ranks to finally get a call-up to the senior side. But he failed to nail down a starting spot in the team and was sent out on a series of loan moves to Championship sides before finally settling down at Hull City.

Following their exit from the toughest league in the world, Livermore found himself at The Hawthorns who themselves are under the threat of relegation this season.

But the night belonged to the former Spurs man as he won, what could be, a vital 3 points in West Brom's pursuit towards safety.
