Premier League Review: Tottenham Hotspur v West Ham United

Tottenham Hotspur 2 – 0 West Ham United Match Review:

Tottenham Hotspur strengthened their hopes of European Football with a comfortable 2-0 Premier League win against West Ham United at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday.

It was West Ham who had the first opportunity to open the scoring when Tomas Soucek found Jarrod Bowen, whose shot went wide of the target (1’).

The home side soon had an opportunity of their own to break the deadlock through Oliver Skipp, who saw his close range effort blocked well by the Hammers’ defence as Tottenham continued their search for the opening goal (11’).

Controversy then came just a few moments later. Following a corner, Richarlison’s effort on goal seemed to strike the hand of Thilo Kehrer. The possibility of penalty kick for Spurs was the ruled out by VAR (13’).

Dejan Kulusevski then created yet another chance, this time for Harry Kane only for the effort from range to be blocked by a resilient West Ham (18’).

Spurs were definitely in control of the contest and they were looking the more likely of the two teams to open the scoring. They had another opportunity just before the half hour mark when Brazilian right back Emerson Royal had a powerful shot blocked (27’).

The home team were piling on the pressure and it was Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg who was next to test the Hammers’ resolve. The visitors were eventually able to deal with it, but only after goalkeeper Alphonse Areola was forced into a great save (36’).

Tottenham were very unlucky not be ahead at half time, having great opportunities in first half stoppage time. Richarlison had an effort saved from a tight angle before Cristian Romero saw his header fly agonisingly over the crossbar (45+2’).

Spurs began the second half as they ended the first. Richarlison had a shot saved (47’), before the club’s all time leading scorer, Harry Kane, had an effort go narrowly wide of the far post (49’).

The deadlock was then finally broken by the Lilywhites who took a deserved lead. It was Emerson Royal with the goal who slotted the ball into the left corner (56’).

Bowen came close to restoring parity when he forced a save from Fraser Forster (58’), before Spurs came close to doubling their advantage through Kulusevski, who forced Areola into a save (59’).

Heung-Min Son then doubled Tottenham’s advantage with a composed finish after a fantastic pass into him from Kane (72’).

Spurs were able to comfortably see the game out and the win was confirmed by the final whistle, seeing them climb into the top four ahead of Newcastle.

It was a deserved victory for Tottenham, who had more possession (57%) and shots on target with 6 compared to just 1 for the visitors.
