Tottenham Hotspur 2-3 West Ham United 

Tuesday, 18th July 2023

West Ham United's solid start to their pre-season campaign continued in Perth this morning as David Moyes' side beat London neighbours Tottenham 3-2.

Danny Ings and Divin Mubama put the Hammers two goals ahead with headers on 18 minutes and 23 minutes respectively - a lead they were to maintain until the half-time interval, in front of a crowd of 46,000.

However the Hammers were to find themselves pegged back to 2-2 following goals from Giovani Lo Celso (68 minutes) and a Destiny Udogie header.

But the game was won 12 minutes from time when substitute Gianluca Scamacca latched ontot Pablo Fornals' through ball before depatching it beyond goalkeeper Austin to secure a morale-boosting victory for the Hammers.

The game - the highlights from which you may see below - was described as "intense" by watching Hammers boss Moyes, who was naturally delighted with his team's performance.

"It wouldn?EUR(TM)t have been one we?EUR(TM)d have wanted to have so early and wouldn?EUR(TM)t have been one we chose, but the boys did a great job," he said.

"We had a weak squad in comparison [to Tottenham] with all our international players are back home at Rush Green at the moment. The squad of players they had out here was ridiculous compared to what we had.

"It really was a mismatch, but I have to say we made it look much better than that. I?EUR(TM)m really pleased the young boys got some playing time and the senior boys who have been out here have done very well."

And there was additional praise for Academy striker Divin Mubama, who was recently voted as's Young Player of the Year.

"Divin does deserve a mention because he makes us different," he added. "He makes us a completely different side with his running, his pressure and the work he does off the ball for the team and we needed it."

And even though he has questioned to wisdom of making his players travel half wa around the globe for two friendly matches, Moyes admitted the tour of Australia had been a success.

""e?EUR(TM)ve enjoyed the people and they?EUR(TM)ve been great," he continued. "There were a lot of West ham supporters. There was a great West Ham following here and at the Perth game, and at least they have seen their team win a couple of games.

"It is part of the job for football clubs [to come overseas] and you only get it when you are a big club and we need to start making sure we project ourselves in different parts of the world.

"It?EUR(TM)s just that this year we went all the way to 7 June and it?EUR(TM)s made it a really short break. We?EUR(TM)ve not been able to bring all our players with us and we?EUR(TM)re looking forward to getting back and getting all the squad back together now."
