Tottenham extend winless run to FIVE games as West Ham come from behind to win

Tottenham are searching for their first win since October as they fell to a 2-1 defeat at home to West Ham.

Spurs enjoyed a hugely successful start to the season under Ange Postecoglou, who guided them to the top of the Premier League earlier this season.

The north London outfit were unbeaten in their opening ten games of the season but have since experienced a slump in form.

A 4-1 defeat at home to Chelsea would prove to be the start of their downturn, with West Ham the latest side to claim points from them.

Spurs took the lead at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Thursday night, a towering header from Cristian Romero.

The centre-back made his first appearance for the club since he was sent off against Chelsea, but was unable to prove key at the back.

West Ham found their equaliser seven minutes into the second-half as Jarrod Bowen capitalised on a stroke of luck to fire in.

David Moyes’s side then made it 2-1 on 74 minutes as Spurs caused their own problems yet again.

Destiny Udogie’s short back-pass had to be punched away by Guglielmo Vicario, but it fell into the path of James Ward-Prowse.

The midfielder hit the post with his initial effort but was on hand to score from the rebound to send the away fans wild.

Spurs pushed for late second but the visitors were able to hold on and seal their seventh Premier League win of the season.

On the other hand, the hosts are now winless in five matches, a stark contrast from the opening weeks of the campaign.

The result at home to Chelsea was followed by defeats against Wolves and Aston Villa either side of the international break.

Spurs then secured a dramatic point at Manchester City as Dejan Kulusevski’s header made it 3-3 at the reigning champions.

However, West Ham’s victory means Postecoglou and co. are still seeking their next win since the beat Crystal Palace 2-1 in October.
