Mauricio Pochettino Calms Nerves After Spurs Lose At West Brom

West Brom remarkably kept their slim Premier League survival hopes alive as Jake Livermore scrambled a stoppage-time victor to sink former club Tottenham 1-0 at the Hawthorns.

Soccer Football - Premier League - West Bromwich Albion vs Tottenham Hotspur - The Hawthorns, West Bromwich, Britain - May 5, 2018 West Bromwich Albion's Jake Livermore celebrates scoring their first goal with Chris Brunt.

Who will come out on top in the battle of the managers Darren Moore or Mauricio Pochettino?

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.

Phillips was the provider again two minutes into the second half as Davinson Sanchez lost his footing when confronted with a low cross but West Brom striker Salomon Rondon missed his kick and the danger passed.

Stoke's 10-year stay in the Premier League, though, came to an end following a 2-1 defeat by Crystal Palace at the bet365 Stadium. The Baggies enter Saturday's match on a four-game unbeaten streak.

Harry Kane nearly scored a spectacular own-goal until Lloris turned his sliced clearance over with 17 minutes left.

Tottenham have alternated between winning and not winning in their last seven final away matches of a Premier League campaign (W4 D1 L2), beating Hull 7-1 last season.

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

On the other end of the pitch, the Egyptian will pose a big threat during set-piece situations, something Hugo Lloris will have to be wary of.

He explained: "West Brom are showing great character in their last few games - the capacity to beat Manchester United at Old Trafford and draw with Liverpool".

The Potters enjoyed a relentless run of mid-table finishes during their decade in the top-flight and there was little reason to doubt their ability to repeat this season, so much so that they were backed at a high of [16.0] to go down.

Xherdan Shaqiri put the home side in front with a free-kick after 43 minutes of Saturday's lunchtime game.

It is not in their own hands going into the final day of the season as West Brom must rely on a couple of things. The Hard Tackle though, predicts a share of the spoils that will see the Baggies drop down to the Championship after a valiant fight.
