Date: 21 February 2021
Venue: London Stadium
West Ham United leapfrogged Chelsea into fourth spot on the Premier League standings after defeating Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 on Sunday afternoon.
Hugo Lloris, Eric Dier, Lucas Moura and Son Heung-min were the only players retained from Thursday's Europa League encounter while David Moyes handed recalls to Michail Antonio and Pablo Fornals.
The hosts were ahead inside seven minutes when the returning Antonio poked the ball beyond Lloris after getting on the end of Jarrod Bowen's teasing cross.
Spurs went close to pulling level after 13 minutes as Eril Lamela played in Harry Kane, who sent a swerving effort past Hammers shot-stopper Lukasz Fabianski.
While Spurs struggled to carve out chances after that, Lloris came to their rescue seven minutes before the break when the Frenchman tipped Craig Dawson's header over the crossbar.
Jose Mourinho opted for a double change at the start of the second half, with Gareth Bale and Matt Doherty replacing Lamela and Japhet Tanganga.

However, it was the Hammers who got the next goal as Jesse Lingard bagged his third goal of the season with a neat finish, with the Video Assistant Referee approving the strike after it was flagged for offside.
The North London outfit pulled a goal back after 63 minutes when Bale's in-swinging corner was tucked away by Lucas Moura's neat header at the near post.
Bale nearly completed the comeback with 10 minutes left on the clock but his powerful first-time volley crashed against the crossbar with Fabianski well beaten.
The woodwork came to West Ham's rescue in second-half stoppage as Kane's pass to Heung-min Son deflected onto the upright, with the Hammers holding on for the win.
