Spurs turn around to hold West Brom 3-3

London: Tottenham Hotspur came back from a three-goal deficit against West Bromwich Albion to record a 3-3 draw in a thrilling game, at the Hawthorns, on Saturday.

West Brom started off with a bang earning a 2-0 lead by just the fourth minute with goals from Morgan Amalfitano. They made it 3-0 by the 31st minute as Chris Brunt found the target.

But as it appeared that Spurs were heading for a humiliating defeat, an own goal from West Brom’s Jonas Olssen gave them hope. They worked hard thereafter and goals from Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen allowed them to split points. West Brom manager Pepe Mel was far from pleased after watching his side squander a three-goal lead.

Everton won 1-0 at bottom club Sunderland to leapfrog Arsenal into fourth place in the League on Saturday while the relegation battle intensified with wins for three clubs in danger of the drop.

The only goal at the Stadium of Light came after 75 minutes when Sunderland defender Wes Brown chested a cross into his own net to give Everton a seventh successive victory and move them into the Champions League places.

With five matches to play Everton have 66 points, two more than Arsenal. Emmanuel Adebayaor then missed with a soft penalty for Spurs before Stephane Sessegnon seemed to have wrapped up the points for the Baggies, scoring after a great solo run in the 31st minute.

Second-from-bottom Cardiff City won 1-0 at Southampton with defender Juan Cala scoring after 65 minutes and Fulham, who are 18th, beat fourth-from-bottom Norwich City 1-0 at Craven Cottage.
