Striker Harry Kane scored his first goal since returning from injury as Tottenham secured a 2-0 win over West Ham to boost their hopes of securing a top-four spot.
Spurs’ victory over West Ham on Tuesday evening Keeps the Hammers deep in the relegation zone.
Tomas Soucek’s own goal in the 64th minute gave Jose Mourinho’s Lilywhites the lead before England international Kane brilliantly finished off Heung-min Son's through-ball with eight minutes left to play.
It was Kane’s 200th Premier League appearance for the north London club and following the match, the 26-year-old told Sky Sports: "As a striker you want to score goals and help win the game. It was a tough game, we had a few chances and it was nice to finish it off at the end.
"When you've been out for over six months it's about getting that feeling back on the pitch. I should've scored one other but it's nice to put that one away.
"I'm in good shape. I've been working very hard. I feel as good as I've ever done."
On going a long time without a goal: "I'm someone, whether I score or not, I'm ready for the next one, it doesn't bother me too much. Scoring is the best feeling in the world."
On reaching 137 goals in 200 Premier League games for Spurs: "It's good but it can always be better. 200 games it goes so quickly. The years fly by and you have to make the most of it. I'm still only 26 so hopefully I can get to that 200 mark sooner rather than later and go from there."
