Thottenham vs West Ham Highlights
As the Premier League match between Spurs and West ham Highlights resulted in the victory of spurs, who lost their last two matches in all competitions, as their manager is not there for the match as he’s undergoing on surgery.
Tottenham have never seemed far from crisis during an season that has seen fans protest against the owners, while an expiring contract and surgery have clouded Conte’s future, but they once again find themselves in the Champions League qualification places.
Newcastle’s stuttering form has been key, with the Magpies now fifth, but Spurs and caretaker manager Cristian Stellini, who has now won all three games he has taken charge of – deserve praise after comfortably taking care of business against West Ham.
David Moyes spoke optimistically before kick-off of the momentum a four-game unbeaten run had generated for his side, but their performance told a different story, with just one shot on target across 90 minutes against a Spurs side coming off back-to-back defeats at Leicester last weekend (when Conte temporarily returned) and AC Milan in midweek.

West Ham journey on League
West Ham’s best chance of the game came just a minute into the contest when Jarrod Bowen flashed a volley just wide of Fraser Forster’s goal from the edge of the box.
But the Hammers were lucky to avoid conceding a penalty in the 14th minute when – for the second game in succession – the officials failed to punish a clear handball in their area.
Thilo Kehrer was the lucky defender on this occasion, with the Germany international getting away with slapping down the ball as Richarlison tried to turn, and the Brazilian was then denied a goal on his first start since the World Cup as Lukasz Fabianski blocked his effort from a tight angle.
Cristian Romero then headed just over as a drab first half drew to a close, but Spurs showed far more intent after half-time, with Richarlison again having a shot saved before Harry Kane uncharacteristically blasted wide after Declan Rice’s error.
Spurs’ goal eventually came from an unlikely source, with Ben Davies latching onto Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s excellent pass to square for Emerson, who slid his shot past Fabianski with impeccable composure (56).
Son – who had been dropped to the bench – then came on to score the second after being set up by Kane (72), with Spurs easily seeing out what remained of the game to give themselves a much-needed win ahead of another huge London derby next weekend at home to Chelsea.

Moyes put West Ham’s defeat down to defensive errors and urged his players to show they are “up for the fight” against relegation.
“We didn’t defend well enough on a couple of occasions and gave them too much encouragement at the start of the second half,” said Moyes. “We had a bit of control but we played it square and back which let Tottenham come on.
“I think we gave them encouragement. We made a couple of really poor defensive mistakes for goals. At this level, we can’t afford it.”
West Ham’s next game is at home to Nottingham Forest on Saturday, and Moyes admitted the fixture is “very big” given his side’s predicament.
The Hammers are now one point from safety with 15 matches still to play, but Moyes said of his players: “They’ve been here before so I think a lot of them know how to handle it.
“I’ll be looking to see the colour of the players’ eyes in the next week. You can imagine what the colour of mine will be.”
When asked what the key to avoiding relegation will be, the West Ham boss said: “Our results, not their results.
“We keep going. We’ve been feeling a bit better about our performances. They’ve been challenged, now let’s see who’s up for the fight.” Watch Thottenham Vs West ham Highlights on Uksports.
