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

GOAL! West Ham 1-1 Tottenham (Zouma, 19 mins)

The hosts equalise! Bowen whips in an enticing delivery and the centre-back rises highest to divert it into the far corner. It doesn’t quite come off his head but he won’t care one bit.

A roar of delight from Moyes on the touchline.

West Ham 0-1 Tottenham

17 mins: Udogie makes another positive run down the left and wins a free-kick for Spurs after he’s bundled over by Paqueta.

Maddison whips in the ball from the left but it’s cleared away well by the West Ham defence.

West Ham 0-1 Tottenham

13 mins: It’s all Tottenham since that goal as Son is the latest to try his luck from the edge of the box. It’s well struck but Fabianski gets across well to his left to hold onto the ball.

West Ham 0-1 Tottenham

10 mins: So close to a second for Spurs! Udogie wins the ball high up on the left and gives it to Son. He switches it to Porro and the Spaniard’s low drive is just wide of the right post with Fabianski beaten.

West Ham 0-1 Tottenham

7 mins: West Ham look for an immediate response from a corner but Romero does well to block Kudus’ hacked effort over the bar for another set-piece.

This time the visitors clear it at the first time of asking.

GOAL! West Ham 0-1 Tottenham (Johnson, 5 mins)

The visitors take the lead!

The first real Spurs attack of the game and Johnson has the ball in the back of the net. Werner is released down the left and flashes a fierce low ball across the six-yard box which the Welshman diverts past Fabianski and into the back of the net.

He was rewarded with a start after his great cameo appearance against Luton on the weekend and is certainly making the most of it.

West Ham 0-0 Tottenham

3 min: A slow start to this one as the rain continues to pour down on the players but the game almost springs into life as Kudus flashes a low cross into the box.

Bowen isn’t quite expecting the ball to fall to him and he ends up shinning it wide of the post. A great early chance for the Hammers, that.

KICK-OFF! West Ham 0-0 Tottenham

1 min: And we are underway in the first half here in London.
