LONDON, Sporting Alert – Follow live updates and scores from the English Premier League game between Tottenham and West Ham United at White Hart Lane on Sunday.
UPDATED 5: GOAL! SPURS 4-1 WEST HAM (Lanzini, 86)
Lanzini fires high into the roof of the net past Hugo Lloris after taking advantage of some loose defending by Walker, who was apparently still high after scoring.
UPDATED 4: GOAL! SPURS 4-0 WEST HAM (Walker, 84)
Kyle Walker fired home from 18 yards out to confirmed Tottenham’s dominance.
UPDATED 3: GOAL! SPURS 3-0 WEST HAM (Kane, 49)
A very poor pass by Tomkins was picked off deep inside his own half by Eriksen who found Kane, who blasted home from 20 yards out as the moment on the ball made lift difficult for goalkeeper Adrian, who could handle it as it slips in under his body.
UPDATED 2: GOAL! SPURS 2-0 WEST HAM (Alderweireld, 32)
Defender Toby Alderweireld got away from his marker and then caught Andy Carroll off guard to head home a corner kick taken by playmaker Eriksen. Uphill task now for the Hammers who haven’t shown anything going forward as yet.
UPDATED: GOAL! SPURS 1-0 WEST HAM (Kane, 22)
Harry Kane continues his scoring touch with another wonderful strike, after firing home from close range.
Both clubs are hoping to break into the top four this season and know that a three points here today would help to keep the pressure on the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal and even Leicester City, which currently leads the EPL standings.
Andy Carroll comes into the starting lineup for West Ham United and will play alongside Diafra Sakho in this London derby.
Liverpool target Manuel Lanzini, Victor Moses, Mark Noble and Cheikhou Kouyate start in the midfield, with Carl Jenkinson, James Tomkins, Winston Reid and Aaron Cresswell starting at the back.
Alex Song, Mauro Zarate and Nikica Jelavic are all among the substitutes.
Meanwhile, Harry Kane will be looking to keep up his recent goalscoring form when he leads the attacking line for Tottenham.
Dele Alli, who was impressive when scoring in the friendly victory over France last week at Wembley, starts in the midfield alongside Eric Dier, Heung-Min Son, Mousa Dembele and playmaker Christian Eriksen.
England manager Roy Hodgson is in the stands at White Hart Lane where he will be keeping a close eye on the likes of Kane, Ali and Dier, with Carroll’s progression also on his agenda.
Tottenham currently sit fifth in the EPL standings on with 21 points, the same amount of points as West Ham, which occupy sixth in the league place at the moment.
A win for either team today wouldn’t take them into the top four, but it would certainly take them closer to doing so.
