West Ham's Slaven Bilic disappointed with Tottenham defeat but praises fighting spirit

West Ham's Slaven Bilic disappointed with Tottenham defeat but praises fighting spirit

West Ham may have been unable to match Tottenham's progress in recent years, but they have had the edge over their London rivals on home turf.

Before West Ham United lost 3-2 to Tottenham Hotspur at the London Stadium, Hammers CEO Karren Brady went online on Saturday morning to share her opinions on the Premier League.

It ended with heavy tension and some fraying tempers, as West Ham made a stirring comeback that had looked improbable when 3-0 down to a strutting, strolling Spurs.

Kane doubled the lead in the 38th minute through a rebound effort, as he was in the right place at the right time to tap in a rebound shot from Deli Ali.

Kane scored his first in the 35th minute.

Andy Carroll had only been on the pitch for a couple of minutes, replacing the injured Michail Antonio, when his misplaced pass inadvertently helped set up the opener for Kane.

It certainly had the desired effect on Kane, who had virtually polished off West Ham before half-time in the lunchtime kick-off. Alli, a player who has developed from being a central midfielder at MK Dons into perhaps English football's most elusive locator of space, continued his prolific level of involvement in Spurs goals.

BSF jawan killed in Pakistani firing
India's Border Security Force (BSF) said that Pakistani soldiers fired at several positions along the volatile global border. He said three cattle died, three others were injured and three houses and a temple were damaged in the firing.

They extended their lead on the hour when Eriksen stroked in the third after Kane had struck the post from a free-kick.

But West Ham were handed a lifeline in the 65th minute when Hernandez headed in a reply after Jose Fonte had flicked on Aaron Cresswell's corner. We deserved to win the game. Then came Kouyate's crashing header from Arthur Masuaku's cross, and it was Tottenham's turn to be on the ropes.

Cheikhou Kouyate gave the Hammer a glimpse of hope as he rose above Davies to beating Hugo Lloris with a bullet header to make it 2-3.

West Ham's first defeat in four keeps them on the brink of the bottom three, with Slaven Bilic left to lament his side's inability to capitalise on a dominant early period of the game. Having been booked in the 64th minute, his foul on Carroll six minutes later was rash and there had been warning signs of his vulnerability.

Kane said: 'We know we just have to improve our home form and we should be right up there.

However, Dembele's absence will always weaken Tottenham since few players possess such strength and skill to hold and carry the ball like the Belgian, though Sissoko did a decent enough job.

But Pochettino added: "I think the first yellow wasn't yellow".
