It wasn’t Big Sam Allardyce.
After a few performances that fell below his usual high standards, our man PEH shook off the MEH and served up a performance to be proud of. The Spurs were in bad need of a pick me up, after a run of three losses on the bounce, a fourth would have triggered some of the darkest online abuse yet.
Beating an admittedly tough West Brom side is to be celebrated, but the hard yards are still very much ahead of us. The sooner Sergio Reguilon and Giovani Lo Celso return to training, the better.
Pierre’s passing was on point, there was a key pass, and that assist. The Dane won 7 duels as well as making more attacking third passes (18) than any other Tottenham or West Bromwich Albion player.
Hojbjerg also made more passes than another player on the park.
