Tottenham took the victory against West Bromwich Albion in the closing minutes thanks to a header from Harry Kane in a game in which the Baggies deserved more (0-1).
The Spurs, who started with Gareth Bale as a starter on the left wing, struggled to contain the onslaught of West Brom, who was able to get ahead in the first half when Tottenham had to take a ball under sticks after a call from Callum Robinson.
Despite the dominance of the locals, Tottenham had a very clear chance from Heung-min Son in the first 45 minutes.
The South Korean planted himself in front of the goalkeeper, but it took him a long time to decide and when he hooked the shot, the defense was already on him.
Mourinho’s men managed to reach the end of the match alive and got rid of a goal from Gallagher, whose shot from the front brushed the stick of Hugo Lloris.
In the twilight of the match and without Bale on the field, Tottenham found his way to victory when Kane combed a cross from Matt Doherty, anticipating the goalkeeper, and sending the ball into the net.
With this result, Tottenham is placed provisional leader of the Premier League with 17 points, waiting for what happens between Manchester City-Liverpool.
West Brom remains in the relegation places, eighteenth, with three points in eight games.
