Tottenham Hotspur vs West Ham United Full Match Reports
In a thrilling second-half comeback, West Ham United secured a narrow 2-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur, extending their unbeaten run to six matches across all competitions (W5, D1).
Despite recent defensive struggles, Tottenham welcomed back Cristian Romero from a three-match suspension. Surprisingly, it was in the West Ham box where Romero left a lasting impact in the 11th minute. The Argentine center-back soared to meet Pedro Porro’s out-swinging corner, directing a looping header beyond the helpless Łukasz Fabiański, standing in for the injured Alphonse Areola. Empowered by Romero’s third goal of the season, Spurs pressed for a second throughout the first half. Giovani Lo Celso tested Fabiański with a routine stop, and just before halftime, West Ham’s Kurt Zouma inadvertently struck the post.
Having shown little before the break, West Ham rejuvenated themselves, gaining a crucial foothold seven minutes into the second half. Mohammed Kudus’s long-range strike rebounded to Jarrod Bowen, who confidently slotted home with his weaker right foot, securing his ninth league goal of the season. With Tottenham’s slim lead erased, Ange Postecoglou brought on Richarlison and Oliver Skipp to shift momentum. Richarlison had an immediate chance but glanced his header wide from Porro’s inviting delivery. The full-back then attempted a shot, only for Fabiański to make a smart save.
Failing to capitalize on these opportunities proved costly, as West Ham exploited a defensive error to complete the turnaround. Guglielmo Vicario could only parry Destiny Udogie’s weak backpass into the path of the grateful James Ward-Prowse, who hit the post with his initial effort before tapping into an empty net from the rebound. The ninth-placed Hammers frustrated Spurs for the rest of the match, leaving the hosts in sixth position without a win in five matches.
Man of the Match: Jarrod Bowen (West Ham United).
