West Brom hope of remaining in the Premier League got a huge boost with a hard-fought 1-0 victory against Tottenham at the Hawthorn on Saturday.

The Baggies needed to beat fourth-place Spurs to stand any chance of staying up and left it late when Livermore turned the ball past Hugo Lloris.

Stoke has been relegated from the English Premier League after a 10-year stay.

If Chelsea beat third-placed Liverpool on Sunday they would move on to 69 points, two behind Spurs and three behind Juergen Klopp's side, while also enjoying a game in hand over the Reds, going into the final set of matches next week.

West Brom will now ensure they win against Crystal Palace in their next game to avoid relegation.

Tottenham had scored in each of their last 23 Premier League games but this time even their totemic marksman Harry Kane came closer to scoring an own goal than filling the opposition net.

The hosts absorbed plenty of pressure at the Hawthorns but posed a set-piece threat throughout, with their reward a scrambled victor from England midfielder Livermore in the 92nd minute.

Ryan Fraser blasted home with a quick free-kick from the edge of the area in the 37th minute.

Two Seismic Events At Mine Where Miners Are Trapped
Rescue operations have entered their second day at Sibanye-Stillwater's Driefontein mine in Carletonville‚ near Johannesburg. A week later at the Kloof Ikamva shaft, two mineworkers were found dead after a fall of ground caused by a seismic event.


Puel's team went into the match having won just twice in its last 11 league games.

It was Swansea's seventh game without a win, and third in a row without a goal.

Crucially, he produced a spectacular stop in the dying seconds after Livermore had scored to keep alive West Brom's dream of pulling off what would be a great escape. Some have speculated whether he is one of the best players to be relegated from the competition.

Fellaini had the ball in the net after only three minutes but he was offside when he turned home Rashford's free kick. "So maybe now you understand why some players play more than others".

That was about as good as it got in a horribly disjointed display from United.

Southampton broke the deadlock 11 minutes into the second half when Redmond directed a far-post header between Pickford's legs from Cedric Soares' cross, his first goal since May 13.

It could have been a comfortable win for Watford but Troy Deeney missed a penalty in the first half.

Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka spared Rafael Benitez's blushes when denying Andre Gray who had raced clean through.

Anonymous until the hour, Dwight Gayle then spurned two fine Newcastle chances, first unable to turn in the box, then failing to glance a header on target.
