West Ham rallies from two down to edge Tottenham

West Ham United produced a scintillating display to rally from two goals down to beat Tottenham by 3-2 and reach the quarter-finals of the League Cup.

Things started in the worst possible way for them at Wembley, with the Hammers conceding after just five minutes as a high defensive line was exploited by Son Heung-min’s pass through to Moussa Sissoko to stroke home for Spurs.

Dele Alli then doubled the lead for Spurs just before half-time through a deflected shot to put West Ham’s London rivals in a comfortable position.

But the interval seemed to be what West Ham needed to rally from their awkward position, with striker Andre Ayew beginning the turnaround by converting after stand-in keeper Michel Vorm parried Edimilson Fernandes’ thunderous drive and the Ghanaian poked home the second following Manuel Lanzini’s cutback.

It was also the Argentine’s whipped corner into the box that was another important contribution which completed the recovery as Angelo Ogbonna rose highest to flick in towards the far post.

West Ham manager Slaven Bilic, who had been under close scrutiny after a drubbing by Brighton in the Premier League last Friday, lauded his team’s performance.

“To score three goals against them (Tottenham) — who do not concede goals — then be brave and compact and good on the ball, we deserved it and it is a big boost for us,” he said.

“The mood was down at half-time, but not as down as against Brighton. That result was bad but we played good football. We did not penetrate Spurs enough, were not good in the final third and we said things about what we should do when they and ourselves have the ball.”
