Tottenham missed the chance to move into the top four when they were held to a 1-1 draw at West Ham after Brennan Johnson’s early strike was cancelled out by Kurt Zouma’s header in their Premier League clash.

Ange Postecoglou’s Spurs looked up for the battle from the start and went in front after five minutes through Johnson, who scored from close range when he connected with a low cross from Timo Werner following a slick counter-attack down the left.

West Ham were soon level with the ball going in off Kurt Zouma’s back a from a Jarrod Bowen corner in the 19th as the central defender rose amongst a crowd of players inside the six-yard box with the Spurs defence failing to snuff out the danger.

The hosts had a great chance to take the lead on the hour when Michail Antonio raced through having shrugged off Micky van de Ven but he shot tamely at goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario.

West Ham 1-1 Tottenham

65 mins: A rare sighting of goal for Son this game but it’s a tight angle for the Spurs captain who blazes over the bar from the right side of the box.

West Ham 1-1 Tottenham

60 mins: HUGE CHANCE! Two massive moments at both ends. Spurs think they should have a foul on the edge of the box when Paqueta bundles over Maddison but the ref waves play on.

The ball is lumped forward by West Ham and it’s Antonio that surges through one-on-one with Vicario but gets the finish all wrong as he fires straight at the Spurs keeper.

Amidst all that, Bentancur is also shown a yellow.

54 mins: A better spell from Tottenham as Maddison sees his effort blocked on the edge of the box after no-one was on hand to turn Johnson’s cross home.

West Ham 1-1 Tottenham

50 mins: Another chance goes begging for West Ham as Paqueta strikes an effort wide from range. A superb start to the second half from the hosts who have got the London Stadium right behind them.

West Ham 1-1 Tottenham

49 mins: CLOSE! So close to a another set-piece goal for West Ham. Mavrapanos rises highest to head on target but Vicario makes a huge stop on the line to deny the centre-back.

The goal would not have stood anyway as the flag goes up on Antonio who was impeding the Spurs keeper from an offside position.

West Ham 1-1 Tottenham

48 mins: A real good chance early in the second half for West Ham as Spurs make a meal of clearing the ball on the edge of their own box. The loose ball drops to Antonio but his effort is palmed clear by Vicario.

KICK-OFF! West Ham 1-1 Tottenham

46 mins: And we’re back underway for the second half.

HALF-TIME: West Ham 1-1 Tottenham

West Ham are unbeaten in their last six Premier League matches when drawing at half-time (W 4, D2). A somewhat perculiar record but one Moyes’ side would be more than happy to extend come the end of this match.
