West Ham United Extend Tottenham's Winless Run.

Updated: Dec 9, 2023

West Ham Extend Fine Form with Comeback Win Against Struggling Tottenham

West Ham showcased their resilience and determination as the East London side secured a 2-1 victory over a struggling Spurs side at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. The Lilywhites, managed by Ange Postecoglou, suffered their third consecutive home defeat as David Moyes' Hammers continued their impressive run of form.

The early stages of the match saw Tottenham take the lead in the 11th minute, courtesy of a well-executed set-piece. Argentine defender Cristian Romero rose above the defence to meet Pedro Porro's corner kick with a header, putting the home side ahead and raising hopes among the Spurs faithful.

However, the Hammers responded emphatically in the 52nd minute when Jarrod Bowen capitalised on a defensive lapse. Pouncing on a loose ball in the penalty box, Bowen showcased clinical finishing, slotting the ball into the net to draw West Ham level.

The turning point of the game occurred in the 74th minute when a costly mistake from Tottenham's Destiny Udogie proved decisive. A poorly executed back pass gifted possession to West Ham, allowing James Ward-Prowse to capitalise on the opportunity. The English midfielder struck the ball onto the post before calmly tapping in the rebound, securing a 2-1 lead for the visitors.

The victory marked West Ham United's continued ascent up the table, highlighting their ability to capitalise on opponents' errors. On the flip side, it deepened Tottenham's woes, with the Lilywhites now enduring their fourth defeat in five matches and failing to secure a victory since October 27 when they beat Crystal Palace.

The match also emphasised Tottenham's struggle to maintain leads, as they surrendered points from a winning position for the fifth consecutive game.
