West Ham defeated Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday to go fourth on the Premier League table, boosting their hopes of a Champions League qualification.
The Hammers’ quest for a chance in next season’s European competition got to a good start as they took an early lead at the London Stadium on Sunday.
Tottenham’s defence were caught napping in the third minute as Antonio was allowed to roam in the 18-yard box, leaving him with Hugo Lloris to beat.
Antonio’s shot from a Jarrod Bowen’s cross was blocked by Lloris who couldn’t stop the rebound as the Englishman gave the Hammers the lead after five minutes.
Manchester United loanee, Jesse Lingard scored his third goal for the Hammers with a left-footed shot two minutes into the second half.
Lucas Moura then pegged one back for Mourinho’s men with a 64th-minute header from a Gareth Bale corner to take the game to 2-1.
Spurs would later strike the bar twice but the attempts were not enough to deny David Moyes his first-ever win over Jose Mourinho on his 16th attempt (previously P15 W0 D6 L9).
Jose Mourinho’s men have now lost five of their last six Premier League matches, six out of eight in all competitions.
Match stats via Sky Sports:
- West Ham’s Michail Antonio has scored 42 Premier League goals and they have all come from inside the box – in the competition’s history, only Tim Cahill (56), Chicharito (53) and Gabriel Jesus (45) have scored more with all of them coming from inside the box.
- Tottenham have eight total league defeats this season – José Mourinho’s most since 2015-16 with Chelsea when he was sacked after nine league defeats.
- José Mourinho took charge of his 50th Premier League game with Tottenham today (W23 D12 L15), whilst the 81 points Spurs have picked up under the Portuguese is 14 fewer than he’s managed with any other side throughout his first 50 league games in charge (Man Utd, 95).
- West Ham will spend a night within the top four places in a top-flight campaign after at least 25 matches have been played for the first time since 1985-86 when they finished the season in third.
