West Ham Dent Tottenham Hopes Of Dislodging Leicester

Tottenham missed the opportunity to go top of the Premier League as they lost to an outstanding West Ham United performance at Upton Park.

Michail Antonio’s seventh-minute header from Dimitri Payet’s corner gave Slaven Bilic’s side a narrow victory margin – but the Hammers were vastly superior to a disappointing Spurs, who never threatened the victory they required to overhaul Leicester at the top of the table.

Spurs were second best in all departments and when they did threaten, West Ham keeper Adrian saved from Toby Alderweireld’s shot and Harry Kane’s rebound, the England striker also failing with a good chance at the far post late on.

And how West Ham’s fans lapped it up as they relished putting the skids under Spurs while only leaving themselves one point off the top four in this most unpredictable of seasons.
