Tony Pulis was pleased with the work rate and organisation of his West Brom side as they held Tottenham to a 1-1 draw

West Brom manager Tony Pulis thinks Tottenham have a bright future, despite slipping up in the title race.

Craig Dawson scored at both ends as West Brom put a major dent in Tottenham's Premier League title hopes with a 1-1 draw at White Hart Lane on Monday Night Football.

The result means league leaders Leicester are just one win from the title, with three games left, and can clinch the trophy with victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford on Super Sunday.

West Brom were much more resolute in their defensive approach than in last Thursday's defeat at Arsenal.

Pulis was bellowing and instructing his players from his technical box for much of the contest and the Baggies boss was delighted with the outcome - backing Tottenham to develop their recent title-winning credentials in the coming years.

"I was disappointed at Arsenal but very happy with how we have played away at the big clubs this season," he said.

"Against all the bigger clubs, we have played well. Arsenal was the only ground we have been disappointed at.

Craig Gardner and Darren Fletcher give their reactions after West Brom drew 1-1 with Tottenham at White Hart Lane

"Tottenham are a fantastic team and their future is bright. Something that has not been said is that Tottenham have played a lot of games on a Thursday night and playing Thursday then Sunday is difficult and where they are now is a fantastic achievement.

"I know they will be disappointed but they still have a chance, Leicester still have to get the points and Tottenham are capable of winning all three games."
