Tottenham Hotspur continued their quest for the Barclays Premier League title with a nervy victory over West Bromwich Albion at White Hart Lane.

A succession of first-half corner couldn’t help breach The Baggies’ resolve, and it wasn’t until an hour gone that Spurs made the breakthrough.

Following Rafael Van der Vaart’s pass, Gareth Bale’s cross found Defoe, whose quick turn in a congested West Brom saw allowing him to slide the ball past Ben Foster.

The win was marred by injuries to Williams Gallas and then substitute Jake Livermore.

But Tottenham hung to give the rest of the Premier League evidence that among their stylish performances, they do have the steel and patience required to challenge for the title.
