Victor Moses played for just over an hour for West Ham on Sunday but he had a poor game and made little impact as Tottenhan ran out 4-1 winners of their Premier League clash at White Hart Lane.
Nikica Jelavic replaced the Nigerian forward in the 62nd minute as first-half goals from Harry Kane and Toby Alderweireld gave Spurs a deserved two-goal lead at the break, before Kane fired home a second to continue his fine individual form ahead of Kyle Walker adding a fourth.
West Ham, who headed into this match on the back of their best ever start to a top-flight campaign after 12 games, pulled one back late on through Manuel Lanzini but this was an evening to forget for Moses and his teammates.
The Hammers started slowly and, soon after Adrian had tipped Christian Eriksen’s well-taken drive to safety, Kane latched on to Dele Alli’s deflected shot to turn inside the box and fire home his opening goal.
It could have been a different story had Diafra Sakho’s overhead kick not crashed back off the crossbar with the scoreline still slender, but Spurs – who have now lost just two of their last 20 matches at home – doubled their tally through Alderweireld’s front-post header.
