    West Ham 1-0 Spurs

    All over. Spurs miss out on going top of the Premier League table after a deserved West Ham win. Thanks and good night.

    West Ham 1-0 Spurs

    Slaven Bilic is roaring his side forward. West Ham have the ball deep in the Spurs half as they eat up more seconds.

    Harry Kane heads towards goal

    Four additional minutes.

    West Ham 1-0 Spurs

    Dimitri Payet is clear on the edge of the Spurs area but terrific back tracking by Son Heung-min prevents the West Ham forward from getting his shot away. 

  5. Post update

    West Ham 1-0 Spurs

    Lots of noise coming from West Ham fans in the closing stages. They will be loving this in Leicester. Tottenham's next match is the north London derby at home to Arsenal on Saturday.

    Eric Dier looks dejected

    Just who wants to win this Premier League title?

    Spurs had won their previous six league games but they have just five minutes to save themselves from defeat. 

    West Ham are currently one point behind fourth-placed Manchester City in the 'as it stands' table. 

  7. 'Frantic football'

    West Ham 1-0 Spurs

    BBC Radio 5 Live

    Leicester goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer at Upton Park:

    “At the moment it’s very frantic football being played by both teams. Spurs are still waiting to get a proper grip on this game, but there’s still 15 minutes to go.

    “After all, we showed last week that you can win with almost the last kick of the game.”


    West Ham 1-0 Spurs

    Andy Carroll is on for West Ham. How he would love to kill off Spurs.

  9. Post update

    West Ham 1-0 Spurs

    No sign of a Spurs equaliser. Mauricio Pochettino is off his seat pacing his technical area. This has been an improved second-half showing from the visitors but West Ham look capable of getting a second goal.

  10. Unfamiliar position

    West Ham 1-0 Tottenham

    Tottenham have spent the grand total of 33 days at the top of the table since the Premier League started in 1992-93 - that's five days fewer than Bolton Wanderers. Norwich City, Leeds United and Blackburn Rovers have all enjoyed more time at top than Spurs.

    Unless Spurs score twice in the next 20 minutes or so then they won't be going top tonight.


    West Ham 1-0 Spurs

    James Collins is consoled by Mark Noble

    A flurry of changes as the game enters its final quarter.

    West Ham defender James Collins gets a standing ovation as he hobbles off injured to be replaced by young Reece Oxford.

    Meanwhile, Spurs have brought on forward Son Heung-min for Erik Lamela.

    Kevin Wimmer reacts

    Should Spurs be down to 10 men?

    Kevin Wimmer, who has already been booked, appears to bring down the lively Emmanuel Emenike but Andre Marriner gives it the other way.

  13. 'Great club'

    West Ham 1-0 Spurs

    Paul Ince

    Former MK Dons manager on BBC Radio 5 live

    "Team spirit is about the whole club. I was at West Ham as a kid and it was a family club with a great atmosphere right down to the tea ladies."


    West Ham 1-0 Spurs

    Deli Alli is on for Nacer Chadli, who has frankly had a poor game.

  15. CLOSE!

    West Ham 1-0 Spurs

    So close to a Spurs equaliser.

    A long-range shot by Toby Alderweireld from 30 yards is parried by Adrian into the path of Harry Kane who looks certain to score but the England man scuffs his attempt.

  16. Now or never

    West Ham 1-0 Spurs

    Paul Ince

    Former MK Dons manager on BBC Radio 5 live

    "Every year the season starts and you look at teams like Manchester City and Chelsea, just like you do with Real and Barcelona in Spain.

    “But it’s great to have the likes of Leicester and Tottenham in the mix this year. This is a great opportunity for both of those teams because it won’t come again next season.”

  17. Post update

    West Ham 1-0 Spurs

    Movement on the Tottenham bench. Deli Alli is getting ready to come on."

  18. Spurs showing signs of life

    West Ham 1-0 Spurs

    Phil McNulty

    BBC Sport chief football writer at The Boleyn Ground

    Manuel Lanzini takes on Kevin Wimme

    "Not much but at least Spurs are spending time in West Ham United's half.

    "You have to think Mauricio Pochettino had some very clear - and very short - messages for his players at half-time.

    "And while we can criticise Spurs, let's give credit to West Ham United, who have been outstanding so far. How the home fans are loving it."

  19. Post update

    West Ham 1-0 Spurs

    Hesitant defending by Kieran Trippier allows Aaron Cresswell to get a header in - the West Ham man heads it into the ground and the ball bounces over the bar.

  20. Post update

    West Ham 1-0 Spurs

    That's more like it from Spurs.

    Kieran Trippier whips in a teasing cross which Erik Lamela gets his head to but the Argentine can't direct his header on target.

    Spurs have come out with a lot more purpose but they are not working West Ham's keeper.
