Tottenham suffered a bitter defeat, this Thursday (7/12) in the 15th round of the English Championship. After all, playing at home against fellow Londoner West Ham, they completely dominated in the first half. They had 80% possession, 12 shots to 4 and took the lead with a goal from Romero. But another team returned in the final stage. In this way, it was the turnaround: 2-1. The Hammers’ goals came from Bowen and Ward-Prowse.

Thus, Tottenham have their fifth game without winning (four defeats and a draw) and are falling down the table. The team that was vying for first place now has 27 points, in fifth place, nine behind leaders Arsenal. West Ham is recovering. It has 24 points, in ninth place.

Tottenham only gave away in the first half

West Ham entered a closed field, leaving the ball with the home team. A single shot on target and a dangerous attack, with a header from Paquetá. Tottenham had at least four chances. One came in. After a corner, Romero rose above the mark and scored a header in the 11th minute. In the others, Lo Celso kicked one that stopped at goalkeeper Fabianski, Son was not happy with one of them and Porro isolated his. However, such superiority did not make the team go into the break with a greater advantage.

West Ham turns in the final stage

The second half came and Tottenham returned drowsily, letting West Ham enjoy the game and equalizing after six minutes when top scorer Bowen won a ball dispute on the left and appeared to finish off a ball splashed into the defense after a shot by Kudus. Tottenham continued slowly and Paquetá almost turned the ball around on the counterattack. Only after 15 minutes did Spurs return to the game. But without offensive power. At 22, Richarlison joined. Two minutes later, he missed a chance, with a header that skimmed Fabianski’s right post.

But, at 28, West Ham turned around following an incredible mistake by Tottenham. Italian full-back Udogie delayed a ball into the fire for goalkeeper Vicário, not seeing that Bowen was in the shot. The Italian goalkeeper still managed to block it, but the ball went to Prowse. The first shot hit the post, but the ball came back for the Hammers midfielder to put into the goal. Only after 15 minutes did Tottenham return to the game. But it didn’t end well. At 22, Richarlison joined. But, two minutes later, he missed Spurs’ big chance, a header that skimmed Fabianski’s right post.

However, an incredible mistake by Tottenham’s defense, in the 29th minute, gave West Ham the chance to turn things around. Italian left-back Udogie missed a ball for goalkeeper Vicário. But he didn’t see that Bowen was in the play. The Italian goalkeeper still managed to block it, but the ball went to Ward-Prowse. The midfielder shot the first time at the post. However, it came back to him, who scored and gave final numbers to the game.
