That is all for this particular live blog, but stick with IBTimes UK for live coverage of this afternoon's six 15.00 BST kick-offs including Southampton vs Manchester United and Stoke vs Chelsea.

Leicester vs Liverpool also on the way at 17.30. Goodbye for now.


What should have been the most routine of derby victories eventually turned into a really nervy affair for 10-man Spurs, but they eventually hold on to equal a club record of five consecutive Premier League away victories.

It is the first time they have won each of their first three road games since the 1991-92 seasons.



West Ham 2-3 Tottenham


Tempers flare after a war of words between Reid and Llorente. Both sets of players become embroiled in a heated melee before Oliver hands out a flurry of cautions.

West Ham vs Tottenham


Ayew flies in on Davies and is rightfully booked. The Welsh defender also scuffs a shot just wide of Hart's far post.


Lloris cannot prevent a late West Ham corner and Carroll feels he was pushed by Sanchez as he tried to connect with a header. Nothing given.

Noble drives the rebound well over.


Reid picks out row z after Lloris gets his fingertips to a searching cross from Cresswell.

Four minutes of added time signalled.


Fernando Llorente for Kane is Pochettino's third and final substitution.


Masuaku's left-wing cross is powerfully headed home by Kouyate in the 87th minute to set up a grandstand finish.

10-man Spurs are rocking. Can they hold on?

Cheikhou Kouyate


Goal: West Ham 2-3 Tottenham (Cheikhou Kouyate)


West Ham cannot get a shot away as Carroll tries to find Noble or Masuaku at the back post.

Less than five minutes remaining for the hosts to rescue something from this London derby.


Hernandez brings down Trippier and, much to his disbelief, is shown a yellow card for his troubles.


Appeals for a West Ham penalty turned down as Hernandez's flick strikes Sanchez. Chicharito continues undeterred and fires a powerful shot straight at Lloris.


Carroll shoots wide before Pochettino replaces Sissoko with Trippier.


Pochettino looks to his bench for the first time today, withdrawing Eriksen in favour of Harry Winks.

Bilic's final change sees Arthur Masuaku replace Fonte. The French left-back scored a belter against Bolton in midweek.



Aurier, whose decision-making has been erratic all afternoon, brings down Carroll from behind and is swiftly shown a second yellow card by referee Michael Oliver.

Tottenham down to 10 men as they look to hold off a West Ham side that will be growing in confidence.

Serge Aurier


Red card: Serge Aurier (Tottenham)


Bilic sends on Andre Ayew in place of Arnautovic as Aurier is cautioned for a foul on Carroll.


Hernandez reduces the arrears with a simple close-range header through the legs of Lloris after Fonte flicks on a corner at the near post.

Genuine hope or a mere consolation goal for West Ham with 25 minutes still to play?

Javier Hernandez


Goal: West Ham 1-3 Tottenham (Javier Hernandez)


Kane beats Reid and sees his latest shot deflected onto the post by Hart. He wants that hat-trick.


After Jose Fonte fouls Alli, Kane steps up to crash a free-kick against the post. Aurier's subsequent cross is then deflected into the path of Eriksen, who drives home from just inside the area.

Spurs in complete control.

Christian Eriksen
