Yes , Yarmolenko has just gone out injured but sometimes a turnaround in fortune can come from a set back such as this , perhaps Pellegrini will be forced to play Arnautovic as a winger with Antonio or Perez on the right and Hernandez or Carroll up front - stick Anderson behind them and we still have a potent force , all is not lost .

I haven't really looked at the general opinion on the match but as i went, i honestly thought we didn't deserve anything and we were second to spurs. Not that they were excellent but we were just not good ourselves. It's not enough to nearly be good enough, we were second rate, too much hit and hope and clearances out to the opposition. I will put it partially down to our continued injuries but also just lacking in quality and relying on Arnie too much.

But i am genuinely worried about who we think we can beat because we seem to be not quite good enough against everybody, top, middle or bottom.

As a rival supporter, I disagree. I thought we were fortunate to get away with all three points. Hugo was called into action loads in the second half. I would have been pleased with a point in all honesty. I think West Ham have the makings of a decent side.

I think we had two thirds of a good side.

Sp*rs were excelling in breaking from deep but our defense generally snuffed out their final ball. Although not as good our midfield was getting lots of good ball to our wide attackers, and that's where we were lacking the necessary quality.. Very similar to the Brighton game.

I'm away this week so didn't catch the game although I did see a picture of us throwing smoke bombs on the pitch and the bubble machine going for a disallowed goal...

Really sums our season up
