Tottenham Hotspur's setback reignites Premier League top-four battle

West Bromwich Albion's caretaker manager Darren Moore gestures on the touchline during the English Premier League football match between Newcastle United and West Bromwich Albion at St

The Baggies score their last-gasp victor.

Albion must hope Swansea and Southampton draw on Tuesday to take their fight to the final day, and Livermore hailed the squad and coaches after Saturday's late show.

Jake Livermore's scrambled goal in second-half stoppage time kept Albion's improbable hopes of Premier League survival flickering but the result at the Hawthorns could also have ramifications at the other end of the table.

Brighton secured English Premier League football for another season by beating Manchester United 1-0 on Friday.

Victory for Southampton at Everton will still send West Brom down to the Championship along with already-relegated Stoke City but Moore is not concerning himself with events at Goodison Park.

West Brom took their unbeaten run under caretaker manager Darren Moore to five matches with a stoppage-time victor from Jake Livermore.

Moore, with Albion two points from safety with a game left, said: "I really do hope so. We've come together and there's been some pride restored and the feelgood factor within the community and within the supporters", he told reporters.

"The important thing for me is that we come together for the importance of the club, if we do that we'll make the right decisions for the future".

She was said to have told passengers in an on board announcement: "If your seatbelt isn't tight, you f-- up". Her tweet also said police and an ambulance were waiting for the plane when they landed Thursday afternoon.

Remarkably, Moore has now picked up three wins and two draws in his five games in charge - pitting his wits against Jose Mourinho, Jurgen Klopp, Rafa Benitez and Mauricio Pochettino in the process. "It could've been anybody out there".

Chelsea can close the gap to two points with a home win over Champions League finalists Liverpool on Sunday, and they face Huddersfield Town and Newcastle United next week, with Spurs hosting Newcastle and Leicester City.

Spurs carried the greater threat and Ben Foster needed to be alert when Erik Lamela threatened before he palmed away Christian Eriksen's free kick after 62 minutes.

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

"I don't believe it's a wake-up call", he said.

Here are some of the best stats from the penultimate weekend of the Premier League campaign.

"The key is to be more aggressive and to be clinical in front of goal is our challenge, because I think this type of game, with the chances, possession, the possibility to play in the last third or in the opposite, half, we need to create more - more one-on-ones, be more aggressive, run forward in behind their defence".

"We didn't create enough chances, maybe we created more (than West Brom) but we're a team who need to create more to have the capacity and then to score".
