West Ham 1-0 Tottenham LIVE! Antonio goal – Premier League result, match stream and latest updates today – Evening Standard

West Ham United handed Tottenham Hotspur their fourth defeat in a Premier League London derby this season as Michail Antonio scored a second-half goal to earn his side a 1-0 win on Sunday.

West Ham moved up to fourth with 17 points while Spurs — who also lost to Crystal Palace, Chelsea and Arsenal — fell to sixth as Nuno Espirito Santo’s side failed to test the home side’s goal in the second half.

Both teams had plenty of chances in the first half, with West Ham dominating but failing to convert their opportunities while Spurs’ best shots on goal were hit straight at goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski.

Antonio was rewarded for his hard work when he scored from a corner in the 72nd minute. The striker was marked by Harry Kane who failed to deal with Antonio as he stuck a foot out to divert Aaron Cresswell’s pinpoint cross into the net.

A dour day for Spurs, who didn’t have a shot in the second-half. They had 62 per cent of possession, though. That’s something.

90+1 mins: Johnson with another strong rush down the right, again keeping Spurs well at bay.

90 mins: More changes as Bowen is replaced by Dawson. An attacking change for Spurs meanwhile as Bergwijn is on for Moura.

Only three minutes added on.

89 mins: Antonio now takes the ball to the corner to fend off Gil – who is roughly half the width of the Hammers front man (it’s all muscle, don’t worry…).

Not long left for Spurs to build some momentum but, with Kane and Son in the team they may only need one chance.

88 mins: Johnson robs Gil and West Ham bring the ball away really nicely, Antonio opting to sit on it rather than rush the Spurs box. Smart play.
