The Spurs captain had missed the previous two defeats against Brighton and Chelsea but made a surprise start against Sam Allarydce’s side.

The win sees Spurs leapfrog Chelsea into seventh place while West Brom remain 19th in the table.

The hosts dominated possession from the start and Kane almost opened the scoring after 15 minutes but his strike hit the bar.

Kane also saw a shot go just past the post before West Brom goalkeeper Sam Johnstone denied Serge Aurier with a brilliant save.

Just before the break, West Brom were close to taking a shock lead but Mbaye Diagne’s close range effort was saved by Hugo Lloris.

Spurs finally broke the deadlock after 54 minutes when Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg found Kane inside the box to finish.

Kane becomes the joint-second highest scorer alongside Bobby Smith in the club’s history with 208 goals behind Jimmy Greaves.

Son doubled Spurs’ lead after he was on the end of a swift counter attack started from Lucas Moura.

West Brom posed a threat late on and Diagne then had two goals ruled out for offside. Spurs held on for the clean sheet and crucial three points.
