  • It's all over at White Hart Lane, and Tottenhan are clear and deserved winners here. 3-1 the final score and that result sees Spurs swap league positions with West Ham, moving up to seventh.

  • Final sub for Spurs as Sigurdsson replaces two-goal Defoe.

  • The corner comes to nothing for The Hammers, and Spurs counter, with Jaaskelainen saving Bale's low effort.

  • West Ham go close to pulling another back but Reid's header from Tomkins' flick on is deflected over for a corner.

  • Vertonghen tries to blast it at goal but the wall does its job and the shot is blocked.

  • Noble fouls to give Spurs a free kick in a dangerous position.

  • Jaaskelainen makes an impressive double save, first denying Defoe his hattrick and then Bale's bootom corner bound strike.

  • Cole tries to square it to Carroll but his low cross is too soft and Lloris can easily hold.

  • After a delay, Sandro is stretchered off, with Livermore replacing him.

  • Sandro is in a lot of pain and looks like he will have to come off after hurting himself tackling Diame.

  • West Ham pull one back and as Spurs fail to clear their lines. A miscommunication between Lloris and Caulker results in O'Brien chipping in a nice cross for Carroll, who beats Walker in the air and heads across goal.

  • GOAL - Carroll scores for West Ham!

  • Spurs continuing to stride forward, but their next attack comes to an end with Walker's effort from the right hitting the side netting.

  • Spurs make a substitution - Dembele on for Lennon.

  • Bale runs towards the West Ham box, before passing to Defoe and continuing his run. Defoe tries to play it back into his path but doesn't connect properly.

  • They may be three up but the hosts aren't holding back and come close again with Dempsey's cross/shot ending just wide of Jaaskelainen's right post.

  • Bale threatens again with a powerful run into the box, but he takes one touch too many and loses possession.

  • Cole makes a promising run on the right wing for the visitors, but loses control of the ball and Spurs pick up the loose ball.

  • Carroll turns and has a shot for The Hammers but it is close down and Spurs counter. Lennon runs with the ball at great pace but his ball through to Defoe is poor and West Ham are able to recover.

  • McCartney hoofs the ball forward for Carroll, who claims, but the referee blows his whistle for an off the ball challenge by Cole on Caulker.
