Spurs are held but set new record


(McClean 39)


(Alli 15)

Tottenham extended their unbeaten run to 14 games to set a new club record in the Premier League as they were held at West Brom.

Spurs have not lost in the league since the opening day, and it is now their longest run without defeat in the top flight since a 14-game streak in 1985.

Dele Alli enhanced his growing reputation when he volleyed in after 15 minutes in front of watching England boss Roy Hodgson.

But James McClean levelled with his first goal since February and Spurs were indebted to Hugo Lloris for a wonderful reaction stop to deny Jonas Olsson.

The Baggies silenced Harry Kane as the striker was restricted to just one second-half chance which he failed to convert.
