West Ham staged a stunning second-half comeback to inflict a third successive Premier League home defeat on Tottenham following their 2-1 victory on Thursday night.

Ange Postecoglou didn’t compromise on his adventurous footballing philosophy – and his side were rewarded for their bright start when Cristian Romero – on his return to the side following suspension – headed in Pedro Porro’s cross after just 11 minutes.

But it would unravel for the hosts in the second period as Jarrod Bowen notched his seventh away league goal in as many games following a mix-up between Romero and Ben Davies (52).

James Ward-Prowse completed the turnaround when he pounced on another defensive error from Destiny Udogie to tuck home after his initial shot had rebounded back into his own path off the post (74).

The Hammers stay in ninth place but move just three points behind Tottenham in fifth following their fourth Premier League away win of the season.
