Join us on Monday evening for all of the action at Selhurst Park - but for now why not check out Federer v Djokovic in the tennis?

Good night.

'Young, exciting Spurs'

Totetnham 4-1 West Ham

Tottenham defender Kyle Walker, speaking to BBC Sport: "It's always good to get a win over your rivals and to get on the scoresheet was even better. My little boy was mascot today as well, so scoring a goal meant a little bit more, too.

"It’s exciting. We've got a young squad, and you can see they are full of confidence and can play football. For English football it’s even better. Full credit to the gaffer, he has come in here and put his stamp on things, and it's rubbing off on us.

"At the start of the season top four was the aim. But we need to keep doing what we are doing, to keep the unbeaten run going would be nice."

On Harry Kane: "It was only a matter of time. H is a proven goalscorer and was always going to continue his form into this year. We all had faith in him but most importantly he had faith in himself. When he is playing well he is unstoppable."

Tottenham 4-1 West Ham

Still one more game to come in another unpredictable Premier League weekend.

Crystal Palace face Sunderland in Monday's night game. Even a win would not be enough to lift the Black Cats out of the relegation zone. 

'They were better than us'

Tottenham 4-1 West Ham

West Ham manager Slaven Bilic, speaking to BBC Sport: "The performance matches the result to be fair. They were better than us. Up until the first goal they were pressing but we also had some chances. After the first goal it lifted them, we went in a bit of shock. But I said this to the guys, 2-0 down at half-time, we were still in it and needed to score a goal, to raise our game, be more hungry, but the third goal, which came out out of our mistake, it just killed us, and it could have been worse.

"We just couldn’t produce on the pitch. They were more a team. They were, especially physically, quicker and stronger and better in transitions. To be fair of course we played a really bad game but they played a really good game and we have to give some credit for this.

"They wanted it more today than in a normal game, but we simply were not good enough to get anything out of that game, other than being defeated."

Slaven Bilic says that the third goal killed the game and 'to be fair it could have been more.'

The West Ham boss looks thoroughly cheesed off after that display. Write it off Slaven, and go again.

West Ham's next test is at home to West Brom next weekend. 

'An amazing show'

Tottenham 4-1 West Ham

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino, speaking to BBC Sport: "I am very pleased with the performance and with the players. Congratulations to them. It was an amazing show and I feel very proud. We all feel very proud. 

"The most important thing is that the players believe in the way we play and we share the same philosophy. Today was a big step forward because it was a very good example of how we want to play, and how we want to play in the future.

"I think it is one of the best performances and results this season. It was a fantastic game. But the next game is always the challenge. Our objective is step by step. We are still very young and need to improve but it is important to keep the same mentality. 

"We are the youngest team in the Premier League but it is not about your age but belief. When you see a performance like that, it is because the team believes." 

On Harry Kane: "When you are a striker, there are always tough periods but I never had doubts about Harry Kane. He is a top player. He is one of the best strikers in the Premier League."

Tottenham 4-1 West Ham

Nobody in a Spurs shirt seems prepared to say that they can challenge for a top-four spot. But how far can this young side go?

'Fantastic'

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino, speaking to Sky Sports: "It was a high level performance. It was fantastic and we feel very proud. It was a brilliant effort. We showed how we can play and we need to keep the whole season the performance that we showed. Fantastic, fantastic show against a very good team like West Ham.

"Our plan was always to press the opponent and this is our way, our philosophy. We try to build from the back with the ball and we share all together that philosophy now – this is the most important thing. I never doubted Harry Kane.

"Always a striker has difficult periods but Harry is top. We have a very good squad and are happy in the way we work every day.

"Dele Alli can play like a number 10 or central midfielder, he feels comfortable in both positions, depending on the plan that we have. For us the table is not important. The way that we play is important, to develop our philosophy. Today we shared that and believed in the way that we worked."

Here is Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino.

He says that his side need to play like that all season - it was a 'fantastic' display.

Full reaction from the boss to come.

Here comes John with his 'calm down' message

Calm down Tottenham fans. Best start to a season for ages, playing fabulous football, wonder kids who will all play for England, long unbeaten run, blah blah blah, and all for what? Still in the Europa league places and still only the second best in North London. Reality - a dish best served cold.

'We're not getting excited'

Tottenham midfielder Eric Dier, speaking to Sky Sports: "Hopefully I've adapted to this new position. Hopefully I can keep playing well, the team can keep playing well and Harry can keep scoring goals. I'm happy there but it's up to the manager. If he said to play anywhere else then I would. 

"We are going game by game. We're not getting excited. We know that if we can perform like we did today we'll get wins and will be pushing right up to the top, so we'll just keep on doing that."

'We came out flying'

Tottenham 4-1 West Ham

Tottenham striker Harry Kane, speaking to Sky Sports: "That was probably the best performance we have had this season. The whole week training has been incredible and we just tried to put that out on the pitch. We came out of the traps flying. 

"As a striker when your confidence is high you feel like you're going to score every game. Today I could have had a couple more, but the most important thing is we're winning by playing well. 

[On his missed chance] "I tried to put my foot through it and probably got a bit excited. I'll be punching myself that I didn't get the hat-trick."

If you had told me that Spurs would be unlucky to lose the opening game of the season and then go on an unbeaten run through to November, including a thrashing of Man City and an unlucky draw at the Emirates I'd have been delighted. If you'd then told me we'd be 10 points above last year's champions with the 2nd best goal difference in the league I'd probably have laughed at your optimism. Try and convince me, however, that we'd only be 5th and Leicester top of the league I'd have called then men in white coats! Best league in the world. COYS, it's there for the taking this year!

"Spurs dominated once they figured out West Ham's tactics after a scrappy opening. This is one for Slaven Bilic and his players to forget, but Spurs keep on going from strength to strength. 

"There is so much to sing and dance about for Mauricio Pochettino and his players."

HITS THE WOODWORK

Tottenham 4-1 West Ham

It's been the Premier League's usual intoxicating brew of great goals, awful defending and individual clangers this afternoon. Textbook stuff.

Ryan Mason is a coat of paint away from a sixth goal as his shot from 22 yards beats Adrian for pace and kisses the outside of the post.

"Brilliant finish! I've been praising Kyle Walker but this goal came from his mistake. It was a brilliant bit of skill by Manuel Lanzini though.

"When we saw Mauricio Pochettino waving his arms around on the touchline, it's because of moments like those - earlier in the game they can cost you." 

GOAL - Tottenham 4-1 West Ham

Manuel Lanzini (87 mins)

It's no consolation really but the few West Ham fans who remain inside the Lane do at least see a goal. Nikica Jelavic holds it up well before finding Manuel Lanzini overlapping on his left. The angle is tight but Lanzini lashes home left-footed at the near post. Right into the roof of the net. Think Giggs, FA Cup semi.

A force?

Tottenham 4-0 West Ham

Spurs have scored three or more goals in three of their last four home Premier League games.  How far can this young side go?

The graphic below doesn't do Kyle Walker's curled finished justice.

"Kyle Walker is back to his best now. That epitomises what he was all about three years ago, when he won the Young Player of the Year award. 

"How about that for composure? Outside of the right boot into the far corner? It's a striker's finish. West Ham have kind of capitulated."

GOAL - Tottenham 4-0 West Ham

Kyle Walker (83 mins)

And it is now four as Spurs walk through a snoozing West Ham defence. Christian Eriksen finds Kyle Walker overlapping on the right, West Ham don't offer even token resistance and the former Sheffield United man carries the ball to the edge of the area.

He plays it to Son Heung-min, he lays it back to the full-back and the England man provides a superb finish, outside of the boot, 16 yards out, top corner. Thrashing.

GREAT SAVE!

Tottenham 3-0 West Ham

Should be four! Aaron Creswell loses his bearings and heads the ball straight to Ryan Mason inside the penalty area, his volley is saved by Adrian and Mason then can only shovel the rebound straight back at the Hammers keeper. 

SUBSTITUTION

Former Arsenal midfielder Alex Song is on for West Ham for the final 12 minutes or so, he's back from an ankle injury.

It's not West Ham's day. Mauro Zarate overhits a pass clean out of play when Nikica Jelavic had done well to keep it alive originally. Spurs are going fifth and look like a very useful side indeed.

A sorry old afternoon for the West Ham faithful this afternoon, especially considering their excellent away record. Perhaps the first goal was always going to be crucial to their chances today. They have hardly threatened at all this evening.

At the other end Kyle Walker skims a cross right across the goalmouth - inches away from Son.
