Late goals from Roman Bednar and Craig Beattie gave West Brom a deserved 2-0 victory over 10-man Tottenham at The Hawthorns.
Albion had dominated the opening exchanges but Spurs were reduced to 10 men on 35 minutes when Benoit Assou-Ekotto was shown a red card after seeming to go over the top in a challenge on Gianni Zuiverloon.
Didier Zokora dropped back to fill the hole with playmaker Luka Modric forced to play a more withdrawn role, leaving Darren Bent up front on his own.
Chris Brunt's curling left-footed effort was finger-tipped over by Heurelho Gomes after the break as Spurs sat deeper and deeper.
But the breakthrough finally came on 83 when Bednar rose above the Spurs defence to head a long punt into the box past Gomes.
Beattie added a second in injury time when he stabbed home after a swift break from Marek Cech.
