West Bromwich Albion: Fans recall Jake Livermore’s last-gasp winner against Tottenham in 2018

West Bromwich Albion: Fans recall Jake Livermore’s last-gasp winner against Tottenham in 2018 - West Brom

Plenty of West Brom fans have been fondly recalling a dramatic victory from two years ago yesterday after a post on the club’s Twitter channel @WBA.

On 5 May 2018, the Baggies kept their slim Premier League survival hopes alive with a 1-0 win at home to Tottenham after Jake Livermore scrambled the ball over the line from a corner in the second minute of stoppage time. [via BBC]

A last-gasp Everton equaliser against Southampton later that day also preserved West Brom’s chances of beating the drop before the Saints’ win at relegation rivals Swansea the following Tuesday consigned the Baggies to the Championship.

That was the season in which Darren Moore gave a valiant attempt at keeping the club in the Premier League following a five-game unbeaten run, which included three wins, towards the end of the campaign. Prior to that, a sequence of nine consecutive defeats meant that the Baggies were all but relegated by the time Moore took caretaker charge after the sacking of Alan Pardew.

Should West Brom bring Dwight Gayle back to the club?

Yes

Yes

No

No

While Livermore’s winner against Spurs wasn’t enough to keep West Brom in the top flight, these Baggies fans on Twitter still have very fond memories of the day on which their improbable fight against the drop kept going that little bit longer:
