Tottenham's hopes of running down Leicester to win the English Premier League title were dealt a huge blow today following a 1-1 draw against West Bromwich Albion.

West Brom defender Craig Dawson scored both goals in the game after opening the scoring for Tottenham with an own goal in the 33rd minute. He then headed home an equaliser midway through the second half.

Leicester now sit seven points clear of Tottenham with three games remaining after the Foxes beat Swansea City 4-0 yesterday.

Leicester can win their first ever title on Monday with a victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Spurs now need to win their final three matches at Chelsea, home against Southampton and their final fixture at Newcastle to have any hope of winning their title.

They would also need Leicester to go winless in their final three games against United, Everton and Chelsea.

More to come...
