Tottenham Vs West Ham – Premier League: Live Score, Team News And Updates


Spurs back into the top four

That win takes them above Newcastle United into fourth for the first time in 2023 – albeit having played a game more.

West Ham’s defeat leaves them inside the relegation zone.


FULL-TIME: Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 West Ham United


Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 West Ham United

90+3min: Ivan Perisic is booked for a really poor challenge to give West Ham a free-kick out wide. It’s getting a bit heated between the players but more importantly this is a final chance for West Ham and the initial set-piece is headed clear.


Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 West Ham United

90+1min: We are into four added minutes as West Ham try to salvage something in stoppage time.


Tottenham Hotspur double substitution

90min: It’s been a comfortable 90 minutes in total for Spurs, who make two more changes as Pape Sarr and Lucas Moura come on for Oliver Skipp and Kulusevski.


Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 West Ham United

88min: That sums West Ham up. Declan Rice curling a cross through the box out for a goal kick.

More Spurs chants for ‘West Ham going down’, this time to the tune of KC and the Sunshine Band’s hit ‘Give it Up.’


Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 West Ham United

85min: Spurs fans in good voice. Not only is their side on course to end the day inside the top four, but it piles on more relegation worries for West Ham.

To the tune of ‘Football’s coming home’ they sing: ‘West Ham’s going down’.


Double West Ham United substitution

82min: West Ham make a double switch, sending on Ben Johnson and Pablo Fornals for Angelo Ogbonna and Emerson Palmieri.


Son rises to the occasion…


Tottenham Hotspur substitution

78min: Some veteran legs sent on for Spurs, as Ivan Perisic replaces Clement Lenglet.

Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 West Ham United

Given West Ham drew 3-3 here a couple of seasons back after being 3-0 down with nine minutes to go, we can’t rule them out just yet as they win a free-kick on the edge of the box.

Benrahma’s strike though is over the bar.



72min: Of course he had to score. Son Heung-min makes an instant impact to race off the bench and double Spurs’ lead after running on to a Harry Kane pass. How many times have we seen that over the years?


Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 West Ham United

71min: Spurs have been in control of this match since going in front and are now pushing for a second goal. David Moyes really needs to change this up.

And he does with a double change, Flynn Downes and Antonio being replaced by Said Benrahma and Danny Ings.


Tottenham Hotspur substitution

68min: First change for Tottenham and a rather disappointed Richarlison trudges off to be replaced by Son Heung-min who was given a warm cheer onto the pitch having been dropped to the bench for today.


Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 West Ham United

65min: Royal has been heavily criticised during his time at Spurs for his apparent poor forward play, but the effort has always been there at the Brazilian, and fans are now singing ‘Emerson Royal, he’s one of our own’ in the same fashion they would for Kane. You know the ‘jingle’.

Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 West Ham United

64min: Into the book goes Michail Antonio for West Ham after a lunge on Kane. Looks a bit harsh though as he seemed to win the ball.


By Royal approval of the Tottenham supporters

Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 West Ham United

60min: And yet West Ham nearly hit straight back! Jarrod Bowen shows Romero a clean pair of heels as he skates past him only for his low near post effort to be well beaten away by Fraser Forster.



57min: Of all the people to open the scoring for Tottenham – it’s much maligned full-back Emerson Royal with the opener!

It’s the second Premier League goal of the season for the right-back, played through by Ben Davies, whose slotted finish into the bottom corner was what you would expect from a clinical striker.

Tottenham Hotspur 0-0 West Ham United

54min: Close but not close enough. Spurs counter through Kulusevski but his final ball into the box is neither a shot nor a cross as it evades Harry Kane’s head at the back post and fails to get within a couple of yards of the target.

Tottenham Hotspur 0-0 West Ham United

52min: West Ham have woken up a bit, winning two consecutive corners well defended by the head of Cristian Romero, before a final throw in is also dealt with.

Spurs look to directly counter with a long ball but Fabianski is quick out of his box to intercept.

Tottenham Hotspur 0-0 West Ham United

49min: Spurs on top right now. Declan Rice is robbed of the ball by Kulusevski but despite the forward finding an unmarked Harry Kane inside the box, the striker very poorly fires well wide with a first time strike.

Tottenham Hotspur 0-0 West Ham United

48min: Big chance for Spurs, Kulusevski cuts inside from the right but after cutting it back to Richarlison on the edge of the box the No 9 can only weakly sidefoot a shot straight at Fabianski. Should do better.


SECOND HALF: Spurs get us underway again – no changes


So should it have been a penalty for Tottenham?

Robbie Keane thinks so in the Sky Sports studio – but then he would say that because A) he is a Tottenham icon and B) he’s a card carrying member of the striker’s union.

Yet, former Chelsea hitman Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink said it too, although Graeme Souness offered the case for the defence argueing that Kehrer’s arm was in a natural position giving he was looking to break his fall on the way to ground.


HALF-TIME: Tottenham Hotspur 0-0 West Ham United

It’s not been great has it?

Tottenham Hotspur 0-0 West Ham United

45+2min: From the resulting corner, Cristian Romero nods just over the bar.

Tottenham Hotspur 0-0 West Ham United

45+1min: Tottenham’s best chance of the half. Harry Kane picks Richarlison over the top, but after being forced wide by Fabianski, his effort from a narrow angle is blocked wide.


Tottenham Hotspur 0-0 West Ham United

44min: Thankfully, Lenglet is ok to get back to his feet where he will now be checked for a concussion.

He passes it, and we we are back to 11 v 11 with three minutes to be added on.


Tottenham Hotspur 0-0 West Ham United

42min: Romero is ok to continue, as West Ham look to apply some late pressure.

Play has stopped again though following a Hammers’ free-kick into the box, with an apparent head injury to Clement Lenglet inside the box after what appears to be an awkward looking fall.

Tottenham Hotspur 0-0 West Ham United

40min: More injury news for Tottenham? Surely not? Cristian Romero makes an excellent sliding tackle on Soucek – winning a goal kick in the process- but shortly after getting to his feet he has gone down, and is needing treatment to his lower leg.

Tottenham Hotspur 0-0 West Ham United

37min: Ironic cheers all around the stadium as we have our first shot on target. Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s harmless low effort easy enough for Fabianski to get down low to gather.

Tottenham Hotspur 0-0 West Ham United

34min: Normally if these teams are lacking quality against each other, there is at least some ‘blood and thunder’ to coin a phrase to keep it interesting.

But this is really lacklustre, I don’t think I have ever seen a Spurs vs West Ham fixture this lethargic.

Tottenham Hotspur 0-0 West Ham United

31min: While nothing at all is happening it is perhaps worth noting Oliver Skipp is on a booking – he was cautioned for a poor challenge earlier in the game.

Tottenham Hotspur 0-0 West Ham United

28min: West Ham back on the ball and applying a bit of pressure to Spurs now. Much like the hosts though, there is not a lot of adventure about their play. We are rather going through the motions here.

Tottenham Hotspur 0-0 West Ham United

25min: It’s not been that much of a bad game but the quality has been poor. Can’t say I’m surprised to see that we are still waiting for our first shot on target…

Tottenham Hotspur 0-0 West Ham United

22min: Cameras turn to a grim looking Son Heung-min on the bench. His replacement Richarlison hasn’t done too much so far, although it was his pass that led to the penalty claim.

Still, he’s been no more anonymous than the Korean forward in recent times.

Tottenham Hotspur 0-0 West Ham United

19min: Spurs just starting to see more of the ball now as West Ham drop deep but you do feel it is part of the Hammers’ gameplan. Especially with Lukasz Fabianski yet to make a save in the visitors’ goal.

Tottenham Hotspur 0-0 West Ham United

16min: Lots of caution out there but not without chances. Bowen threads a through ball into the Spurs box that Tomas Soucek only misses out on diverting towards the target with a slide. To be fair he may have been offside but I think David Moyes will be happy with his side’s start here.

Tottenham Hotspur 0-0 West Ham United

13min: Should Spurs have a penalty? They certainly have a case here. Spurs play the ball low inside the box, but Thilo Kehrer reaches low to effectively block it with his hand. Play on is the call and VAR don’t feel there is enough to overturn it.

I think West Ham have got away with one there…

Tottenham Hotspur 0-0 West Ham United

11min: Dejan Kulusevski delivers a cross that is only partially cleared to the edge of the box by a West Ham header but Oliver Skipp’s volley is deflected wide for a Spurs corner. One that West Ham clear.

Harry Kane of Tottenham Hotspur runs with the ball whilst under pressure from Declan Rice

Tottenham Hotspur 0-0 West Ham United

8min: Minor improvements for Tottenham. I stress the word minor though. They are at least asking West Ham a few questions at the back now but it’s still the Hammers looking the more dangerous side in attacking situations.

Tottenham Hotspur 0-0 West Ham United

5min: Five minutes into the game and I don’t think Spurs have had a passing passage of play yet. It’s been all West Ham as they apply the early pressure.

Tottenham Hotspur 0-0 West Ham United

1min: And yet on Kane’s big day it’s West Ham who go very close to opening the scoring in the opening minute.

Jarrod Bowen is found unmarked on the edge of the box but his powerfully struck shot flies narrowly wide.

Spurs fans pay tribute to their new record goalscorer

Tottenham fans unveil a mosaic with the words ‘HARRY’ for Kane, who overtook Jimmy Greaves as the club’s top scorer recently.

The striker met members of Greaves’ family at the end of the warm up on the pitch as he was presented with yet another personal accolade.


Out come the players at the ground

Here is how the Premier League table stands ahead of this London derby…

…an important match at both ends of the table.


Can we have a thought for these fans at this moment?

Son Heung-min’s popularity in South Korea draws supporters to Spurs so imaging booking this trip only to see him on the bench!

I’m sure he will make his way onto the pitch at some point though.


Tottenham are in the house…


David Moyes share his thoughts on West Ham’s future…

David Moyes has said that he would be ‘kidding himself’ if he expected West Ham to be competing at the top for six or seven years.

The Scot, 59, made the comments while discussing facing pressure as a Premier League manager on Mike Calvin’s Football People.

Despite an outstanding run to the Europa League semi-final last season, concern is growing behind the scenes over West Ham’s domestic form with the Hammers lying perilously close to the drop zone.



Inside Tottenham’s changing room…


Tottenham fan pleads guilty to assaulting Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsdale…

A 35-year-old man has pleaded guilty to assaulting Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale after their north London derby against Tottenham last month.

Joseph Watts of Hackney was charged by police after Ramsdale was kicked by a supporter following Arsenal’s 2-0 win over Tottenham on January 15.

On Friday Watts appeared at Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court, where he pleaded guilty to assault by beating.



Why Spurs are in desperate need of a takeover…

The past month has underlined both Tottenham’s potential and shortcomings in the club’s ongoing battle to end its trophy drought, which stretches back to 2008.

Their 1-0 victory over champions Manchester City illustrated the potential, with the club boasting one of the game’s world class forwards in Harry Kane and a packed 62,850-capacity stadium to match.

A dismal 4-1 defeat to Leicester followed by a meek 1-0 loss to an out-of-form AC Milan side on Tuesday showed the very worst, exposing a lack of quality in defence and depth across the side. Allied to the ongoing uncertainty over Antonio Conte’s future, the club appears to be drifting listlessly towards the end of the season.



Antonio Conte has been ‘impatient’ in his return from his surgery…

Antonio Conte is missing Tottenham’s derby against West Ham and could be out for longer after a setback in his recovery from an operation to remove his gallbladder.

Spurs boss Conte stayed in Italy and did not fly back to London with the team after Tuesday’s Champions League defeat at AC Milan to meet his surgeon for a scheduled appointment.

He was advised to step away from work and focus on his recovery and will remain in Turin with his family until fully fit to return. His assistant Cristian Stellini will resume control ahead of this afternoon’s game.
