West Bromwich Albion suffered a crushing late defeat against Tottenham Hotspur at the Hawthorns on Sunday in the Premier League.
The Baggies went into the game with just three points so far this term, with this billed as a make or break clash for the future of Slaven Bilic by John Percy. For much of the match, West Brom went toe to toe with their opponents and looked like they would come away with a valuable point.
However, Harry Kane, unfortunately, scored late on to break the Midlands outfit’s hearts. As a result, Bilic and co will remain in the bottom three in the top flight.
Despite the defeat, though, Conor Gallagher, on loan from Chelsea, put in an impressive display. His shot almost put West Brom ahead, and his three completed dribbles from four attempts caused Spurs problems.
Will this be Bilic's last match?
The fans were delighted with his display, and they took to Twitter to share their thoughts.
