In-form striker Harry Kane scored twice as 10-man Tottenham survived a late fightback from West Ham to move up to third in the Premier League. But he loves Tottenham and wants to play here for a long time.

However, the goal threat by West Ham was not enough as Tottenham held strong to collect all three points from the home side in an entertaining Premier League encounter.

To say Bolton Wanderers' 3-0 defeat at West Ham United was far from inspiring would be one hell of an understatement.

Michail Antonio has earned plaudits in his outings this season, and with Manuel Lanzini injured will likely represent West Ham's primary creative outlet.

West Ham lost their opening three successive League games, though they did improve during their last two matches by claiming a win against Huddersfield and following that up with a draw against West Brom.

But Javier Hernandez pulled one back before Serge Aurier marked his full league debut with a needless red card.

"We had a dinner in a restaurant in London with all the staff and players that I invite of course".

There's no guarantee that Tottenham can go to West Ham and secure a victory on Saturday.

Sherwood replaced Andre Villas-Boas as Spurs boss in the 2013-14 Premier League season, giving Kane his first Premier League start at White Hart Lane.

DF Jan Vertonghen, 8 - Turned defence into a goal in the first half, dispossessing Carroll, carrying the ball forward and playing Alli in for a chance that resulted in Kane's second.

Carroll has struggled with injuries throughout his career and the nine-time England worldwide last made at least 20 league starts in 2012-13.

The visiting side took the lead through a sloppy play by West Ham in the middle of the pitch, allowing Tottenham to counter quickly.

"To play in different positions adds more value to the player and that is why we are so happy with him". I'd prefer to see him deployed at left-back with a winger to support him than this wing-back nonsense, but he looks relatively good defensively and a threat going forwards.

The odds on West Ham completing a great comeback shortened when Kouyate headed in, however a late melee in the closing seconds sucked the impetus out of West Ham. To offset their poor home form, Spurs must win a disproportionate amount of away games, none of which are more important than contests against fellow London sides.
