Tottenham Hotspur lost 2-1 against London rivals West Ham United in the Premier League on Sunday – their fifth defeat in their last six matches.

Goals early in each half from Michail Antonio and Jesse Lingard gave the Hammers a 2-0 lead. Lucas Moura pulled one back with a header with Gareth Bale being the provider.

Spurs showed urgency and a positive approach in the second half when Bale came on for Erik Lamela. In the first half, they were lacklustre and very slow with their movement.

Former Spurs player, Graham Roberts, took to Twitter to express his reaction on the London derby. He claims that Spurs must be the ‘slowest playing team’ in the league.

Spurs are now struggling badly in the league, and Jose Mourinho has admitted that it will be difficult for them to get into the top four.

Mourinho was furious with some of the errors made by the players during the game.

For instance, Eric Dier failed to clear Jarrod Bowen’s in-swinging delivery, and Hugo Lloris made a fumble that allowed Michail Antonio to score the opening goal.

Lingard’s goal left the visitors with a huge task but even before that Tottenham players looked completely bereft of ideas and lacked confidence going forward.

The introduction of Bale paid dividends but it wasn’t enough in the end.

Spurs are now nine points behind the fourth-placed Hammers, although Mourinho’s side do have a game in hand on their London rivals.
