Tottenham’s 1-1 draw against West Brom at White Hart Lane means Leicester need just three more points to be crowned Premier League champions.
Spurs took the lead in the first half through a Craig Dawson own goal, but the Baggies defender grabbed an equaliser late on to all but end the hosts’ title hopes.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side huffed and puffed but it simply wasn’t to be. West Brom played well, particularly in the second half, and deserved their well-earned point in the end.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to the result and performance.
Not going to get into negatives. Congratulate Leicester, focus on the numerous positives from our own season

We've chocked but never mind. I still love you Spurs. The best Spurs team in years. Immensely proud. Thank you for a great season. #COYS

Whole ground sings We Love You Tottenham. Wasn't to be tonight but to be frankly the league isn't won or lost in one game.

If it is the end of our title bid, hats off to Leicester. The league table doesn't lie. Not been pretty, but no rule saying it should be.

The sight of Sandro consoling a tearful Kyle Walker will stay with me for years to come.

There is still a ton to play for, even if the title is gone. 2nd, Champs League, beating the Arsenal. Twitter best turned off. #COYS

Ah well. Given my prediction of 5th at the start of the season, 2nd is pretty damn good. #COYS

Goes without saying tonight is massively disappointing but Spurs finishing behind the winners of the league is hardly bottling it.

Anyway, expected Spurs to launch press for top-4, not currently sit 5 points clear of Arsenal/Manchester City with 3 games to go
