Dejan Kulusevski had to be held back by his Tottenham teammates as he angrily tried to confront referee Michael Salisbury.

The midfielder was left furious at full-time after seeing Spurs fall to a 2-1 defeat to rivals West Ham, despite holding a 1-0 lead at the break.

In fact, it’s the fifth game in a row that Ange Postecoglou‘s side have failed to win, with all of those games seeing Tottenham throw away a 1-0 lead.

His fury seemingly came after he was caught by an elbow of Lucas Paqueta during a challenge with the Brazilian, a moment that saw Kulusevski booked and the West Ham Man escape punishment.

Salisbury’s decision not to punish Paqueta left Kulusevski furious, with teammates Destiny Udogie and Richarlison physically restraining him to stop him getting into the referee’s face.

Thankfully for the Swedish star, he escaped further punishment and probably has his teammates to thank for that.

For Tottenham, it wasn’t a night that went to plan.

Despite dominating the first half and taking the lead through Cristian Romero, they let their 1-0 lead slip in the second period.

Goals from Jarrod Bowen and James Ward Prowse were enough to secure the three points for David Moyes‘ side and make it five games without a win for Spurs.
