Tony Pulis declared himself “very happy” with West Brom’s performance as they earned a 1-1 draw with title-chasing Tottenham on Monday night.
The result put a huge dent in Spurs’ title hopes and Leicester can now win the Premier League with victory at Manchester United on Sunday as they sit seven points clear with just three games remaining.
Craig Dawson headed the Baggies level after his first-half own goal had put Spurs ahead – with Tottenham hitting the woodwork on three occasions.
But West Brom were much more resolute in their defensive approach than in last Thursday’s defeat at Arsenal.
Tony Pulis was bellowing and instructing his players from his technical box for much of the contest and the Baggies boss was delighted with the outcome – backing Tottenham to develop their recent title-winning credentials in the coming years.
“I was disappointed at Arsenal but very happy with how we have played away at the big clubs this season,” said Pulis.
“Against all the bigger clubs we have played well, Arsenal was the only ground we have been disappointed at.
“Tottenham are a fantastic team and their future is bright. Something that has not been said is that Tottenham have played a lot of games on a Thursday night and playing Thursday then Sunday is difficult and where they are now is a fantastic achievement.
“I know they will be disappointed but they still have a chance, Leicester still have to get the points and Tottenham are capable of winning all three games.”
