The last meeting between the sides culminated in a dramatic stoppage time winner from Jake Livermore that kept Albion up, if only for a few days, but that was the Baggies first home win over Spurs for ten years.
The previous home Baggies win had two late goals as Roman Bednár and Craig Beattie gave Tony Mowbray’s side a 2-0 victory, matching the result from three years earlier famous for Nwankwo Kanu celebrating his brace with a Hawthorns ball boy.
Those are Albion’s only home wins over Spurs in the Premier League era, and you have to go back to 1982 for the previous occurrence when Cyrille Regis scored the only goal of a First Division fixture to extract some sort of revenge for the Baggies defeat to the north Londoners’ victory in the League Cup semi final the previous month.
The first ever meeting between the sides was at Villa Park in the 1901 FA Cup semi final. Tottenham, then in the Southern League, won 4-0 to progress to the final where the defeated Sheffield United in a replay to become the only side to win the world’s most famous cup competition as a non-league side (since the league was formed).
Albion’s biggest win over the Lilywhites was in February 1927 when a brace apiece from Stan Davies and Joe Carter, plus another goal from Sammy Short gave Albion a 5-0 victory in a Division One fixture at the Hawthorns.
Spurs’ biggest win at Albion is actually their last – a goal from Christian Eriksen and a brace from Harry Kane in January 2015 giving Mauricio Pochettino’s side a 3-0 victory.
