Craig Dawson’s header cancelled out his earlier own goal and left Spurs seven points behind leaders Leicester City with three games left.

“It’s not gone,” Tottenham’s Harry Kane told Sky Sports. “We need to keep fighting.

“We had enough chances in the first half to put it to bed. But we weren’t good enough in the second half. All we can do is keep fighting.”

West Brom, who had lost three straight, moved 10 points above the relegation places to 14th.

“You come to places like this and you can be on the back foot before the game even starts,” West Brom manager Tony Pulis said.

Noting that the team came in 1-0 down at half-time, he said the match became more open in the second half “and I am really pleased with the players.”

With Leicester having won Sunday, victory was a must for Tottenham and they raced out of the blocks at White Hart Lane.

West Brom keeper Boaz Myhill made a one-handed save of Christian Eriksen’s free-kick and deflected Kane’s shot onto the post.

Eriksen then grazed the crossbar with another free-kick and Kane was once against denied by Myhill.

The Spurs took the lead in the 33rd minute when Eriksen’s free-kick hit Dawson and went between Myhill’s legs for an own goal.

Tottenham hit the woodwork again early in the second half as Erik Lamela side-footed a ball off the post.

West Brom started to get into the game and eventually equalized when Dawson headed in a corner in the 73rd minute to leave Tottenham’s title hopes hanging by a thread.

“If you give teams like West Brom a bit of a sniff they come back,” Kane said. “We just weren’t good enough in the second half.”

Tottenham’s next game is against Chelsea.
