Final-Time: West Ham United 2-3 Tottenham Hotspur

Angelo Ogbonna's goal came a little too late for West Ham.

Very good performance from the Hammers in the last 25-30 minutes, after an abysmal previous 75. Pablo Fornals, Carlos Sanchez and specifically Michail Antonio transformed the game but it just wasn't enough.

Jose Mourinho got his Premier League career back underway, and he could've dreamt of a better one. All three points, Spurs back into TOP 6 and a very good performance from his new side.

GOAL!: West Ham United 2-3 Tottenham Hotspur


Angelo Ogbonna volleys the ball into the low corner from a corner!

Oh what could've been if VAR didn't overrule Rice's tap in.
15:2410 months ago

90+4' Two minutes to go but the hosts have been pushed by a little.

Nothing should change there in the upcoming minutes.
15:1910 months ago

89' GOA... NO!

VAR reverses Declan Rice's tap in for offside after Sebastien Haller brought it down from a corner.

Hammers still pushing for that chance of an equaliser.
15:1710 months ago

86' Kane and Snodgrass go into Michael Oliver's book with yellow cards after the first of them decided to hack the other, who reacted angrily.

Meanwhile, Moussa Sissoko has been treated for some sort of an injury.
15:1510 months ago

81' Kane tried his luck from long-range, but Roberto catches easily.

GOAL!: West Ham United 1-3 Tottenham Hotspur

73' West Ham are back in it!

Michail Antonio scores in his first game after the injury with a brilliant strike from the edge of the area.

Surely not?
14:5810 months ago

70' Good run from Antonio won the Hammers a free kick in a dangerous area.

Cresswell put it straight into Kane's forehead, though.
14:5310 months ago

60' An hour gone, with a slight improvement of West Ham's play after the introduction of Pablo Fornals.

But what is Pellegrini thinking? Bringing off Anderson, the only player who could actually create something out of nothing while giving a defensive cover to the very poor Cresswell while keeping Snodgrass on the pitch who's been only fouling Spurs' players and misplacing free-kicks.

Where's Arthur Masuaku, the club's best performer in the opening seven Premier League games? Since the introduction of Cresswell, the Hammers have won one game. In September.

Questions are being asked right now, and rightly so with most of West Ham fans, including myself, absolutely furious.

GOAL!: West Ham United 0-3 Tottenham Hotspur

49' Harry Kane, game over.

A beautiful cross from Serge Aurier found the Spurs captain inside the box, and his header went through Roberto and into the back of the net.
14:3510 months ago

45' And we're back underway!

Only one change for the Hammers - Felipe Anderson has been replaced by Michail Antonio.

Half-Time: West Ham United 0-2 Tottenham Hotspur

After 35 minutes the game was fairly even, but a lapse of concentration allowed Spurs to capitalise, and extend their lead shortly after.

A very poor performance from West Ham so far, excluding Declan Rice who's been arguably the best player on the pitch.

The Hammers will need a miracle to get even a point out of this game, which in itself looks very unlikely given how well Spurs have been playing.
14:2010 months ago

47' Great stop from Roberto to deny Sanchez's header.

14:1610 months ago

GOAL!: West Ham United 0-2 Tottenham Hotspur

And there's the two!

Dele Alli does brilliantly to keep the ball in play, gets it off to Son who's seen Lucas's run at the back post and the Brazillian managed to poke it into the back of the net.

Very poor from Aaron Cresswell.
14:1210 months ago

GOAL!: West Ham United 0-1 Tottenham Hotspur

And there's the opening!

Heung-Min Son got the best of Issa Diop and fired it past Roberto to give the visitors the lead.
14:0610 months ago

33' Fantastic build-up from Spurs.

Kane flicked it on to Alli who released Son with a great through ball, but Declan Rice was there to clear.

Great defensive vision from the England international.
13:5910 months ago

26' Tremendous ball from Mark Noble to find Felipe Anderson, but his pass to Haller was inaccurate.

Good opportunity wasted by the Brazilian.
13:5310 months ago

20' Heung-Min Son tried his luck from distance, but Roberto managed to get it away with a very good save.

Even matchup between the two teams, so far.
13:4410 months ago

11' Yellow card for Issa Diop for handling the ball.

The Frenchman thought that he was dragged down by Kane. Now he'll face suspension for the game against Chelsea.

Poor decision from Michael Oliver.
13:4110 months ago

8' Great chance for West Ham!

A beautiful cross from Ryan Fredericks found Sebastien Haller but his header was deflected off Davinson Sanchez's back and fell straight into Paulo Gazzaniga's hands.
13:3810 months ago

5' Another good chance for Kane, another offside.

Spurs so far looking the much better side.
13:3710 months ago

4' Nearly a perfect start from Spurs!

Harry Kane puts the ball into the back of the net with a brilliant finish, but the flag goes up.

Very good defensive structure from West Ham to keep him offside.
13:3310 months ago


Jose Mourinho's first game back in the Premier League is underway.
13:2810 months ago

Just under five minutes until the kick-off and the teams are being led onto the pitch by Michael Oliver.

West Ham in their claret and blue kit, Tottenham in all white.

Talking team news

Although it's been clear in recent weeks that this West Ham side lacks pace, Manuel Pellegrini has yet again decided to stick with Aaron Cresswell, and his direct replacement, Arthur Masuaku, has yet again been left out of the matchday squad.

In my eyes, a very baffling decision, considering that to bring the best out of Felipe Anderson you have to focus him solely on offensive duties, and with Cresswell at left-back, he's more often than not tracking back to cover for the lack of Englishman's pace.

Angelo Ogbonna is also back in the squad following a spell on the bench for an unknown reason as Fabian Balbuena hasn't proved himself to be on form.

Jose Mourinho decided to make three changes - Harry Winks comes back to the starting XI in place of injured Tanguy Ndombele, Eric Dier moves into the midfield with Toby Alderweireld replacing him at centre-back and Lucas Moura replaces Giovanni Lo Celso.

Tottenham Hotspur: Team news

For his first match in charge Jose Mourinho will be without the services of Erik Lamela, Hugo Lloris and Michel Vorm while Tanguy Ndombele and Jan Vertonghen will be assessed ahead of Saturday’s match.

West Ham United: Team news

There will certainly be changes to the Hammers' starting XI considering Michail Antonio's comeback from a muscle injury and the poor form of multiple first-team players.

Alongside Antonio, Mark Noble, Winston Reid and Jack Wilshere are also available for selection.

Will the recent managerial save Spurs' season?

After managing only 14 points out of 12 Premier League games while suffering a 7-1 humiliation from the hands of FC Bayern Munchen in the UEFA Champions League, Tottenham have sacked Mauricio Pochettino and replaced him with Jose Mourinho. And that might bring the low-balling Spurs team the spirit and the hunger needed to get them back on the right track.

Hammers looking for a must needed win

After a very good start to the season, Manuel Pellegrini's West Ham have recently hit a bad patch of performances that seen them sit 16th in the league, only five points away from European places. But a loss might potentially see them drop into the relegation zone soon with Watford and Southampton actively looking to climb up the league standings.
13:4410 months ago

This will be the first game after the two-week international break as both teams are in their respective downs of form and looking to climb up the table.
