West Ham 1-0 Tottenham: Antonio shoots just one goal as Hammers claim vital victory in race for Europe

It was the Hammers who had the upper hand over the previous game, with Pablo Fornals forcing Lloris into more competent action, before Spurs got a foot on the ball and killed the atmosphere quite effectively with long spells of possession.

There was still a threat to the visitors, with Son Heung-min making a weak effort on Lukasz Fabianski and the Pole refusing a point blank lead from Harry Kane. Although, like the Fornals effort, all of them were relatively easy trades for goalies at this level.

Tottenham started the second half brighter but, despite everything, Fabianski was never called upon to act properly and West Ham made the breakthrough with 72 minutes on the clock.

Sergio Reguilon unnecessarily gave the ball over to his 18-yard line and a desperate defense put Fornals in an effort for a corner. Aaron Cresswell’s delivery was on the money so Antonio could go home and break the deadlock.
