West Ham 1-1 Tottenham LIVE REACTION: Spurs miss chance to move into Premier League’s top four after frantic draw in derby

Tottenham were held to a 1-1 draw by West Ham at the London Stadium as they dropped points in the Champions League race.

Spurs had the chance to overtake Aston Villa ahead of their match against Manchester City tomorrow, but they were unable to take advantage.

Brennan Johnson gave Ange Postecoglou’s side an early lead by tapping home from close range after Timo Werner’s low cross.

The goal rewarded the visitors for their positive start, but they were pegged back soon after.

Against the run of play, Kurt Zouma equalized from a corner, which invigorated the Hammers after a slow opening 15 minutes.

Their threat from set pieces scared Tottenhan all evening and they piled on the pressure towards the end of the first half.

This pressure would disappear after the break, however, with Spurs dominating.

However, David Moyes’ men would have the best chance of scoring a winner through Michail Antonio.

Antonio ignored Micky van de Ven, leaving him one-on-one with Guglielmo Vicario from six yards out, but he shot straight at the goalkeeper.

This chance was the only major opportunity for both teams in the second half and neither team could find a winner as the match ended tied.
