Dele Alli rescued a deserved point as we drew 1-1 at West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.
It looked like we might have been ‘Pulis-ed’ again as the Baggies soaked up what we had to throw at them and then scored from a set-piece just eight minutes from time – Nacer Chadli, who else, the scorer.
But we dug in to find an equaliser in the 89th minute. Substitute Heung-Min Son weaved a path down the left, Vincent Janssen’s shot was blocked, Christian Eriksen tried his luck and the ball eventually landed at the feet of Alli, who poked low into the corner.
We had 20 efforts at goal but were denied time and again by home custodian Ben Foster. The pick of his saves thwarted Eriksen, who pulled the strings throughout. The first was low down to his right to touch the Dane’s 25-yarder away and then came a full-stretch tip over to keep out a free-kick bound for the top corner in the final one of five added minutes.
We lost defender Toby Alderweireld to injury midway through the second period but our unbeaten record in the Premier League remains intact after eight games and now it’s full steam ahead to Bayer Leverkusen for our UEFA Champions League clash on Tuesday!
