West Ham Down Spurs

Three goals in the space of 13 minutes in the second half saw West Ham United down London rivals Tottenham Hotspur 3-0 in a Barclays Premiership match at White Hart Lane on Sunday.

Goals from Winston Reid, Ricardo Vaz Te and Ravel Morrison handed West Ham the win.

Spurs started the brighter of the two sides and had an effort on goal in the 15th minute as Gylfi Sigurdsson let loose from 25-yards out, but the keeper made a good save.

In the 33rd minute Andros Townsend created another scoring chance for the home side as he drove down the right before squaring the ball for Paulinho on the edge of the box, but his shot sailed narrowly over the crossbar.

West Ham’s best chance of the half came two minutes before the break as Kevin Nolan sent a powerful volley inches wide of the upright with the keeper well-beaten.

The second 45 saw a lapse of concentration within a period of 13 minutes which resulted in Spurs downfall.

In the 66th minute West Ham took the lead as Reid met a Stewart Downing corner-kick with his head, but saw his initial effort blocked. Reid, though, was quickest to react, pouncing on the rebound and slotting it home, 1-0.

Six minutes later and the visitors found their second goal as Vaz Te broke through on goal, but he also saw his initial shot blocked before latching onto the rebound to double his side’s lead, 2-0

The match was over as a contest in the 79th minute as Morrison burst from his own half, skipping past the challenges of numerous defenders to break into the penalty area and clip the ball over the goalkeeper, 3-0.

The loss was Spurs second of the league season which leaves them on 14 points while West Ham register only their second win and sit on nine points.
