Tottenham 4-1 West Ham
West Ham have had done pretty strong performances against upper table opposition this season, but today was not the latest addition to that list.
The usual suspects were at it for Spurs as it was their local hero Harry Kane doing most of the damage. Kane scored his first of the afternoon in the 23rd minute by collecting a Delle Alli poss and evading cask Jenkinson. His second came from a powerful effort from the edge of the penalty area in the 50th.
In between Kane's strokes, Toby Alderweireld headed home a corner in the 33rd to double the Tottenham lead at the time.
The three goal lead was enough to send the home team into their defensive shell for the final 35 minutes. Kyle Walker pot the exclamation point on this one on a give and go move with Ryan Mason in the 83rd. West Ham did break the clean sheet eventually. Manuel Lanzini gave them a consolation goal in the 87th, but it was far from anything useful for them.
These two entered the day level for fifth place with 21 points. The win puts Spurs ahead and a pair of points behind fourth place Arsenal. West Ham remains in sixth, five back of a Champions League spot.
