West Brom manager Tony Pulis is the toast of Tottenham’s London rivals tonight after his side put a massive dent into Spurs’ title challenge.
Fans of Chelsea, West Ham, Crystal Palace and especially Arsenal have been seriously worried for a number of months now about the prospect of Tottenham claiming their first league title since 1961.
Going into tonight’s Premier League match against West Brom at White Hart Lane, Mauricio Pochettino’s were eight points behind leaders Leicester and knew anything short of victory against the Baggies would mean the Foxes need just three more points to clinch the championship.
West Brom equalise at Tottenham! If there's anyone who'd love wrecking their title bid, it's this guy… https://t.co/9Ab4ybG7w7

Tottenham dominated for the majority of the match, as you’d expect and took the lead in the first half through a comical Craig Dawson own goal.
But as they struggled to find a second and the same player atoned for his error by nicking an equaliser.
It now looks like Leicester will claim their first-ever English league title with just one victory required from matches against Manchester United, Everton and Chelsea.
There are some seriously relived supporters in the capital tonight:
I love Tony Pulis. Just for a minute, but… I do.
