From Tottenham Hotspur Stadium – Spurs secured back-to-back wins in the Premier League for the first time in 2022 as they beat London rivals West Ham 3-1.

Antonio Conte’s men held their nerve to leapfrog their top-four rivals into fifth place and are now only three points behind Arsenal.

After a cagey opening nine minutes, Kurt Zouma turned the ball into his own net to give Spurs the lead. Matt Doherty robbed Arthur Masuaku of possession and slipped through Harry Kane, who squared the ball into the path of Son Heung-min, and the challenging Zouma was caught in a tangle and ended up converting past Lukasz Fabianski.

But West Ham almost immediately hit back when Kane lazily played it back towards Eric Dier, only for Michail Antonio to intercept and sit the defender on his backside, but his shot trickled narrowly wide.

Tottenham went straight back down the other end and should have doubled their advantage when Dejan Kulusevski rolled the ball just behind the run of Son, and the South Korean struck the post.
