Tottenham Hotspurs returned to winning ways in the Premier League following their 2-0 win over West Bromwich Albion.

The Lily Whites mounted much pressure from the blast of the whistle but could not find a way through West Brom's resolute defence.

The Baggies' real chance in the first period was a header from Mbaye Diagne but was expertly saved on the line by Hugo Lloris.

Tottenham continued from where they left off as Kane's through ball found Son whose left-foot shot was saved by Sam Johnstone.

But the breakthrough finally came in the 54th minute as Pierre-Emile Hoejbjerg's brilliant through ball found Kane who opened up his bod and made no mistake with the finish to make it 1-0.

Two minutes later, Spurs were 2-0 up as a lovely counter-attacking move saw Lucas Moura's pass found Son and the Korean tucked home the ball to make his side sit comfortably on the two-goal cushion.

Diagne scored twice but was spotted in an offside position in the same number of times as Sam Allardyce were beaten at the Tottenham Hotspurs Stadium.
