Hammers fight back to seal 2-1 win at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

Tottenham Hotspur's inability to convert leads into Premier League points returned with a vengeance in a 2-1 home defeat by West Ham United.

A lacklustre West Ham were completely outplayed in the opening half in which the returning Cristian Romero's header was scant reward for Tottenham's domination.

But the Hammers were much improved after the break and Jarrod Bowen's equaliser in the 52nd minute changed the complexion of the London derby as Tottenham's early confidence ebbed away.

Spurs then self-destructed in the 74th minute when Destiny Udogie's under-hit back pass caused chaos and James Ward-Prowse tucked in a rebound after his initial shot rebounded back to him off the post.

West Ham comfortably soaked up some late Tottenham pressure and held on for a victory that moved them within three points of their rivals.

The Hammers have won five of their past six fixtures across all competitions while Tottenham suffered their fourth defeat in five and dropped points from a winning position for a fifth consecutive game.

“I think it is a huge win to come here and win against this side,” Hammers manager David Moyes told BBC Radio 5 Live. “I'm pleased with how we were resilient and diligent in our work, organised, defensively structured and we were always a threat as well.”
