Full time: Tottenham 4-1 West Ham

Tottenham extend their unbeaten record in the Premier League to 12 matches with a fine win over West Ham. Harry Kane was he chief architect with two goals to down a Hammers side who failed to recapture their best form on the road. A nice way to warm-up for the visit of Chelsea next weekend for Spurs.

Well that is all we have time for on this Premier League live text. We're back with the Champions League in mid-week but until then goodbye.

17:48

Three added minutes at White Hart Lane.

17:44

Tottenham 4-1 West Ham (Manuel Lanzini)

Kyle Walker in a nutshell in the last five minutes. He curls a beauty in as one end, but in the defensive third he is a mess. He overplays the ball, is disposed and Lanzini glides in from the left and thumps the ball high past Hugo Lloris. Fabulously irrelevant finish and a consolation West Ham barely deserve.

17:40

Goal: Tottenham 4-0 West Ham (Kyle Walker)

Fine goal to end a comfortable win for Spurs. Kyle Walker marauds forward like only he knows, exchange passes with Son and on his 250th league appearance he curls beyond Adrian with the inside of his right foot. Lovely finish and that is the cherry on top for the home side.

17:33

More handbags as this games descends into a scrappy affair. Sakho and Kyle Waker the guilty men this time. Really needless stuff but say much about how competitive this game has been. Was done after an hour.

17:25

Not much of note to mention in the last 20 minutes bar a needless yellow card for Dele Alli and Mark Noble, who will miss their club's respective games against Chelsea and West Brom. Big blow for both sides.

17:10

Adrian comes to West Ham's rescue to prevent this certain defeat turn into a rout - for now. First he saves from Son's effort from the angle before keeping out Eriksen's follow-up volley. Spurs have been all over West Ham since the mid-way point in the first half.

17:07

Goal: Tottenham 3-0 West Ham (Harry Kane)

Game over at White Hart Lane you feel with just under 40 minutes remaining. James Tomkins gives the ball away from a goal-kick and after Eriksen feeds Kane the England striker takes aim and the ball flies under Adrian.

17:02

Back under way at White Hart Lane. No changes at the break.

16:47

Half time: Tottenham 2-0 West Ham

Harry Kane and Toby Alderweireld have Tottenham ahead at the break but it could have been so much better for the hosts. West Ham have toiled after a tight opening and their threat has been as rare as it has been ineffectual. More needed from them to maintain their impressive away form, but they will take solace from the host of missed chances.

16:40

What a miss from Harry Kane. Again Alli is able to smuggle the ball though to him and he goes through on goal but gets his feet in a mess and drags horribly wide. Will these missed chances come back to haunt Tottenham?

16:37

West Ham are being carved open at will now and twice they could and should have gone three behind. Heung-min Son makes space for himself on the edge of the box and tests Adrian, who pushes out the effort on as far as Alli who hits the bar with the follow-up header. The rebound then evades Harry Kane. Tottenham could have been out of sight.

16:34

Goal: Tottenham 2-0 West Ham (Toby Alderweireld)

Easy as you like for the home side as they double their lead after 33 minutes. Christian Eriksen swings a corner in from the left and Alderweireld makes a dart towards the near post and glances a header beyond Adrian.

16:26

West Ham almost level straight away as this game comes to life. Mark Noble's shot is deflected and the ball flies in the direction of Kouyate who goes for the spectacular overhead kick and strikes the bar. From a subsequent corner, Kouyate almost gets on the end of an Andy Carroll header.

16:23

Goal: Tottenham 1-0 West Ham (Harry Kane)

I said earlier that Tottenham had worked the ball nicely to create an opportunity, well there next foray sees them take the lead via the same means. Dele Alli shoots goalwards the ball bounces through to Kane, who spins and lashes the ball past Adrian. Five goals in as many club games for the England forward.

16:22

First effort on target in the game comes after 21 minutes and it comes from the home side. Spurs work it patiently until it comes through to Eriksen and from 25 yards the Dane forced Adrian into pushing the ball away for a corner.

16:16

Tight opening quarter of an hour at the Lane, with attacks, let alone chances few and far between so far. Neither team really able to string together enough passes to built a decent offensive. Not got going tis one.

16:01

The French anthem is once again observed impeccably at a Premier League ground this weekend. We're now under way at White Hart Lane.

15:59

Worth mentioning that Andros Townsend is back in the Tottenham squad after apologising to Tottenham fitness coach Nathan Gardiner following their falling out after the win over Aston Villa.

15:56

Teams coming out at White Hart Lane. Really looking forward to this one. Could be a real pre-Christmas cracker.

15:47

Slaven Bilic on Sky Sports: "It is one of the options we can still be with two up front when we have the ball especially when you have a played like Sakho when he is fit. It is not problem to be around or close to the box. I expect a result every week but so does Tottenham and so does every manager or club who is strong and ambitious and believes in their team."

15:45

In reference to Mauricio Pochettino saying that the game can pay tribute to the victims of the Paris terror attacks, the French national anthem La Marseillaise will be played before kick-off, as it has been across the country in the Premier League and beyond, is a display of unity.

15:39

Mauricio Pochettino on Sky Sports: "It has been a difficult period for them and for us and for all. We need to deal with that and the best way to show respect for the people in Paris is to try and play and perform."

15:28

So are Tottenham and West Ham the real deal? It might not be a question we get a direct answer for this afternoon but it is no doubt a burning concern at the back of the minds of supporters on both sides. Tottenham are unbeaten in the league since the opening day and have slowly moved themselves into the top five with little or no attention. West Ham have been far more dramatic with fine away wins at Anfield, the Etihad Stadium and the Emirates Stadium on the opening weekend, but their home form has been scratchy? Will either side enhance their European credentials this afternoon?
