West Brom 0-3 Tottenham: Spurs' last win without Eriksen or Kane scoring was...?
Tottenham's familiar combination came up trumps once again to help sink West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns, and condemn Tony Pulis to his first defeat in charge of the Baggies.
Christian Eriksen curled home a superb free-kick after just six minutes, before Harry Kane added a second to double Spurs' lead inside a quarter of an hour. Then the England under-21 international converted a second-half penalty, his 20th goal of the season in all competitions, after Joleon Lescott had been penalised for handball.
Victory means the north Londoners remain just three points behind third-placed Manchester United, while West Brom stay perilously close to the drop zone with a three-point advantage over Hull.
