(Tottenham-West Ham 1-2) Tottenham made a complete mess of themselves in the London derby against West Ham. A terrible blunder meant that the whites suffered their third straight home loss.

With victory, Tottenham had come level with Manchester City in points – only the goal difference from a Champions League place.
But despite having the ball 75 percent of the time and playing at home, Tottenham squandered their 1–0 lead and lost 1–2. Spurs have taken just one point in their last five league games.
– I have never scored a goal like that before, says match winner James Ward-Prowse in an interview shown on Viaplay.

The first West Ham goal was scored by Jarrod Bowen, who also contributed to the winning goal:
– I am inspired by Haaland and Salah because they always see what is going to happen, Bowen says to Amazon Prime and is therefore talking about Manchester City’s Erling Braut Haaland and Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah.
– We should have killed the match earlier, says a disappointed Son Heung-min to Viaplay.
– This was not supposed to happen. As captain, I take responsibility, says the Tottenham profile.
Tottenham took an early lead. Pedro Porro took a corner, and Cristian Romero stepped between two West Ham players and headed the ball in a fine arc into the far corner, with no chance for West Ham goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski.
Romero received a straight red card before half an hour had passed in the match against Chelsea a month ago. That resulted in three games in the stands. On Thursday evening he was finally back.

– This is a traditional corner, and then West Ham loses the duel, states Petter Veland as Viaplay expert about the Romero goal.
West Ham should have equalized when Mohammed Kudus crossed for Lucas Paqueta, who chose to dive head when he probably should have used his legs.
– He has plenty of time and could have used his foot. It looks strange, says Sigrid Heien Hansen as a Viaplay expert.
Tottenham dominated before the break and led 1-0 when the teams changed sides.
– West Ham have laid down and accepted, says Petter Veland about the guests’ first half, when Tottenham had 76 percent possession.
1–1: Early in the 2nd half, West Ham hit back. Jarrod Bowen scored his ninth of the season. It happened after a shot attempt from Mohammed Kudus. The ball hit two Tottenham players before falling in front of Bowen. He didn’t let himself be asked twice, but thundered the ball into the goal. 1-2: In the 74th minute, West Ham then took the lead with a strange goal. Destiny Udogie suffered a heavy fate. He was supposed to play the ball back to his own goalkeeper, but the pass was not hard enough and Vicario had to throw himself forward to get the ball away in front of Jarrod Bowen, who came on a four-run. But the goalkeeper could not hit the ball further than into the legs of James Ward-Prowse, who had an open goal. His first attempt hit the post, but he could easily put the rebound into the net.
– The most bizarre goal I have seen, says former Tottenham player Michael Brown on BBC Radio.
– Big mistakes from Tottenham, and James Ward-Prowse can’t believe how lucky he is.
– Tottenham have shot themselves in the foot, says BBC commentator Jonathan Pearce on Radio 5 Live.
Spurs pushed for an equalizer at the end. There was also a VAR check for possible handball, but there was no penalty kick.
West Ham picked up their fourth away win of the season.
– An impressive turnaround by West Ham, states Viaplay expert Sigrid Heien Hansen.
– We were in control, but as long as we don’t take advantage of the chances and concede two easy goals, this will happen, says Spurs manager Ange Postecoglou to Viaplay.
