Tottenham fans react on Twitter to Foster display for West Brom
By Harvey Byrne
Ben Foster pulled off a number of saves for West Brom on Saturday, despite his side’s defeat – and Tottenham fans were full of praise for the goalkeeper on Twitter.
The 33-year-old experienced goalkeeper was tested numerous times by the Spurs attack and it was through no fault of his own that he conceded four goals in the 4-0 defeat.
A Harry Kane hat-trick alongside a Gareth McAuley own goal ensured Tottenham all three points at White Hart Lane.
It was a match which Spurs dominated and very few Baggies players could say they finished with a good performance in north London.
However, Tottenham fans believe Foster impressed against their side and many were keen to recall that he usually puts in a good performance against Spurs.
