Premier League
West Ham United 1-0 Tottenham Hotspur 

Wednesday, 2nd March 2016
by Staff Writer

West Ham denied their North London neighbours the chance to go top of the Premier League at the Boleyn Ground tonight as Michail Antonio's early strike secured a vital three points for Slaven Bilic's side.

The on-fire Antonio added yet another important goal to his growing catalogue by scoring the only goal of a lively and last-ever Boleyn derby after just seven minutes, when beating Hugo Lloris with a deft near-post header.

The win takes the Hammers to within a point of the Champions League spots, after Manchester City and Arsenal were both beaten tonight.

Player Ratings

Adrian San Miguel Del Castillo
Little chance with any of the four goals - but did make a couple of great saves to prevent further embarrassment.

Carl Jenkinson
Pretty woeful. Responsible for at least one goal.

Aaron Cresswell
I'll just copy last week's match notes - "A bit off the pace all afternoon".

Winston Reid
Unusually poor and lost Toby Alderweireld for Spurs' second goal.

James Tomkins
Terrible error for Tottenham's third goal when he received the ball from Adrian and passed it straight to Christian Eriksen. Surely facing being dropped after his Watford error too.

Cheikhou Kouyate
Unusually ineffective in the centre of the park. Nearly scored with a crafty bicycle kick that crashed back off the bar.

Mark Noble
A fifth yellow card of the season means he'll miss next week's clash with Albion. Which is probably a good thing right now.

Victor Moses
Barely involved, a very quiet game.

Manuel Lanzini
Found it tough as Dimitri Payet's replacement in the centre of the park. Still managed to do what none of our strikers did though and found the back of the net late on.

Diafra Sakho
Anonymous out wide on the irhgt in order to accomodate Andy Carroll. A poor tactical choice from Slaven Bilic.

Andy Carroll
Not in the races at all. Still looking less than fully match fit and probably better employed as an impact sub right now.


Mauro Zarate
(Replaced Moses, 62) About as effeective as the man he replaced.

Nikica Jelavic
(Replaced Carroll, 62) Utterly anonymous. One wonders what Michail Antonio has to do to get a game.

Alex Song
(Replaced Noble, 79) Great to see him back. Tidy enough for the final few minutes.

Raphael Spiegel
Did not play.

Angelo Ogbonna
Did not play.

Reece Oxford
Did not play.

Michael Antonio
Did not play.
