Tottenham Hotspur boss Tim Sherwood has dubbed his team's defending "horrendous" after they drew 3-3 away at West Brom in a Premier League clash this afternoon.

Watching on, Sherwood saw his side fall behind in the very first minute at the Hawthornes when Matej Vydra volleyed the ball home.

West Brom quickly doubled their advantage after Chris Brunt followed Vydra's example by volleying into the net just three minutes later.

Things then got even worse for Spurs when Stephane Sessegnon scored in the 31st minute; Emmanuel Adebayor had missed a penalty earlier for Tottenham, meaning the midfielder's goal looked a killer blow.


But an own goal from Jonas Olsson in the 34th minute gave Spurs a foothold heading into half-time and further goals from Harry Kane (70th minute) and Christian Eriksen (94th minute) handed the visitors a point.

And Sherwood pulled no punches over his side's defending, despite believing his team dominated the match.

"It was crazy. We might as well put 1-0 up on scoreboard before we start. At 3-0 I thought we were going to win the game. We totally dominated this football match", he told the BBC.

"We were disappointed with their third goal, we thought it was a foul, I'm trying to think of as many excuses for our defending, which was horrendous.

"I thought our supporters got us back in the game. They never left us, they are knowledgeable and knew we were battering West Brom.

"They never had a shot on goal in the second half Hugo [Lloris] was getting frostbite out there."
