West Ham 1-1 Tottenham LIVE! Premier League result, match stream, latest reaction and updates today

West Ham vs Tottenham - LIVE!

West Ham continued their upturn in form as they earned a well-deserved point against Tottenham after a 1-1 draw at the London Stadium. Antonio Conte’s side remain unbeaten and they took the lead through an own goal from Thilo Kehrer, but as has been the case for much of this season they were unable to get any sort of control in the match.

Sloppiness from Spurs allowed West Ham to equalise after the break, as Tomas Soucek was found by Michail Antonio and hammered home to equalise. Both sides had chances to snatch all three points but it finished level, Jarrod Bowen flicking a ball agonisingly across the face of goal in the dying seconds and neither Michail Antonio or Soucek could catch up with it.

David Moyes’ team were probably the more frustrated not to have won it but they they backed up their victory over Aston Villa with another positive result, getting their season back on track after a disastrous start.

Match analysis

22:20 , Matt Verri

It is not easy, when the Premier League’s new best thing is already racking up the hat-tricks the way normal people accumulate supermarket bags for life.

But with English football’s biannual festival of mind-losing just a few hours away, and with many clubs lining up the proverbial late trolley dash, it is worth each of them taking a moment to appreciate whatever might already be sat in the cupboard at home.

Tottenham and West Ham have made 15 additions between them so far this summer, with the possibility of more to come on deadline day, and, understandably, so much of the analysis of their respective potential this season has been framed through the prism of what those newcomers might bring.

But this was a night for old dogs and old tricks.

FT: West Ham 1-1 Tottenham

21:45 , Matt Verri

WEST HAM INCHES AWAY FROM WINNING IT! Bowen flicks it across the face of goal, Antonio and Soucek both so close to having a tap in. Incredible.

And that’ll do it - honours even at the London Stadium.

Spurs well off their best again, West Ham probably with their best display of the season by a margin. A point each!

21:43 , Matt Verri

90+3 mins: Perisic the latest in the box, referee now dishing out yellow cards to anybody who even looks at him.

Frustrations threatening to boil over on both sides - shame there’s not a bit longer to go!

21:41 , Matt Verri

90+1 mins: Paqueta earns a debut yellow card, late challenge. Richarlison as ever is quickly on the scene to cause some more trouble. Would you believe it?

He and Emerson both earn yellow cards for their involvement in the shoving that followed.

Four minutes added on.

21:39 , Matt Verri

88 mins: Bowen picks up the ball and runs at Dier, before feeding it to Coufal on the overlap.

It’s a lovely cut back into the box, seemingly straight at Paqueta but he doesn’t make contact! Emerson and Paqueta left it for each other - they were both in a brilliant position.

Huge moment.

21:35 , Matt Verri

85 mins: Emerson on for the hosts for the final five minutes and he’s immediately involved to keep the ball in play.

Ball whipped into the box from deep, Antonio gets across his man but it just sails over his head. Kehrer with the cross and it was a brilliant one.

21:32 , Matt Verri

82 mins: Fabianski with a big save to keep West Ham on terms.

Ball fell for Kane on the edge of the box, didn’t catch the strike particularly cleanly but still forced Fabianski into action. He was up to the task.

Zouma has stayed down in the box, took a knock as he challenged Richarlison in the air.

Malik Ouzia at the London Stadium

21:30 , Matt Verri

Does Conte consider Doherty and Spence legitimate options from the bench? If so, it’s strange he hasn’t introduced them to liven up a Spurs right flank which has been very turgid.

21:29 , Matt Verri

79 mins: Both sides will still feel they are well capable of winning this - who wants to risk it though?

Tottenham continue to look shaky playing out from the back but they’re sticking with it. Just about pays off this time.

21:25 , Matt Verri

75 mins: Rice wins the ball back and West Ham charge forward on the left wing.

Worked out to Coufal on the right, his cross falls for Fornals and he hammers over when free in the box. HUGE CHANCE.

Meanwhile, Kulusevski off. Richarlison on.

21:22 , Matt Verri

72 mins: Cresswell forced off, Ogbonna on to replace him.

Looks like he’ll be playing at left-back too. Don’t expect him to be bombing forward on the overlap!

21:21 , Matt Verri

70 mins: Paqueta on for Benrahma and he’s already had a couple of nice touches.

Cresswell the latest player to go down in pain - everybody else who’s gone down has made it back up and he’s no different.

No sign of Conte turning to his bench yet.

21:16 , Matt Verri

66 mins: Areola alongside Nolan in the West Ham dugout, translating the instructions for Paqueta. Not sure how much attention the new man is giving to what he’s being told.

Hammers press right up as Tottenham play out from the back, Bowen slides in on Lloris.

They win it back, played across goal and Bowen almost turns it in at the near post! Couldn’t get there on the slide.

Malik Ouzia at the London Stadium

21:14 , Matt Verri

You’d think West Ham had just made it 2-1. Lucas Paqueta trots back to the dug-out, whips his bib off and the London Stadium erupts.

21:13 , Matt Verri

63 mins: West Ham sitting really deep and it’s allowing Tottenham to dominate possession now.

Davies getting forward at will, he drills a low cross into the six-yard box and it’s just about turned over his own bar by Zouma. Kane wasn’t far away.

Dan Kilpatrick at the London Stadium

21:10 , Matt Verri

The goal was made by a sublime flick by Antonio but Spurs only have themselves to blame. Lloris invited pressure by sending a kick straight out of play and Spurs were asleep for the quick throw.

21:10 , Matt Verri

60 mins: Davies whips a dangerous cross into the box, Emerson wins the header at the back post but it’s straight into a mass of bodies.

Spurs starting to bring a bit of calm to proceedings after that frantic few minutes.

21:07 , Matt Verri

57 mins: Tottenham look rattled now, West Ham all over them.

Rice tries his luck from distance, flicks off Soucek and fortunately for Spurs it goes well wide of Lloris’ goal.

GOAL! West Ham 1-1 Tottenham | Tomas Soucek 55'

21:05 , Matt Verri

WEST HAM LEVEL THINGS UP!

The London Stadium erupts. Antonio holds the ball up brilliantly, and flicks it into the path of Soucek who has made a run into the box.

He takes it in his stride and hammers past Lloris. Great finish.

21:04 , Matt Verri

54 mins: Hojbjerg is spending most of his time signalling towards the bench - it’s like they’re refusing to let him come off.

Pointing to his boot, looks to have problems with it. So he falls over in the middle of the pitch, much to the anger of the home fans.

Change of boots and once again he’s back on!

21:01 , Matt Verri

51 mins: Kane in behind Zouma and he drives into the box, stumbles as the West Ham man challenges from behind. Opts not to go down though and his ball towards Kulusevski is cut out.

He wishes he had toppled over now.

20:59 , Matt Verri

49 mins: Well he’s going to carry on at least for now. Skipp warming up for Spurs though.

Bissouma catches Soucek late, free-kick Spurs. Can’t afford too many more of those, already on a yellow card.

Spurs win it back and break quickly. Kulusevski cuts it back into the box, Soucek pokes it away just before Son can get a shot away.

20:57 , Matt Verri

47 mins: Hojbjerg back out at the start of the half but he’s not moving particularly well, definite limp after that challenge from Rice just before the break.

He’s just pointed to the bench - will be coming off it looks like.

Back underway!

20:55 , Matt Verri

Up and running at the London Stadium for the second-half.

20:53 , Matt Verri

Seven shots for West Ham in the opening 45 minutes, six for Spurs. Visitors have had 60% of the ball.

Would expect Tottenham to sit back in the second-half and just pick their moments on the counter, when they look by far at their most dangerous.

Game situation suits them perfectly.

At Anfield, meanwhile...

20:49 , Matt Verri

Conte-ball?

20:46 , Matt Verri

Spurs not at their best. Again. But they’re on course for another result. Again.

Still a long way to go though.

Nasty one for Hojbjerg...

20:41 , Matt Verri

HT: West Ham 0-1 Tottenham

20:39 , Matt Verri

Spurs lead at the break, through Kehrer’s own goal. Hojbjerg down late in the half under a challenge from Rice, looked in a fair bit of pain.

Very little to split the teams apart from that, both sides have had decent chances. West Ham probably more fluid going forward, with Antonio striking the woodwork.

Still all to play for in the second-half.

20:36 , Matt Verri

45+3 mins: Spurs taking an age over every free-kick and throw-in, doing whatever it takes to get to half-time.

Very uneventful last ten minutes or so. Tottenham getting exactly what they want.

20:34 , Matt Verri

45 mins: Lloris flies off his line to flap at a cross just as Bowen was lurking. Did enought to get it away.

Four minutes added on - could easily have been more for that VAR check alone.

20:31 , Matt Verri

43 mins: Antonio vs Dier... Dier wins.

West Ham man ran at him and tried to knock it past him into the box, but the defender sticks a toe out and pokes the ball away.

After a good spell for West Ham following the goal, Tottenham have managed to kill the mood and take control.

20:28 , Matt Verri

40 mins: That sums up Son’s season so far.

Ball fired into Kane on the halfway line and on the turn he lifts a brilliant ball over the top for Son to run onto.

Decent touch and he’s clean through - it’s anything but. Tries to cushion it with his head but instead knocks it on straight to Fabianski.

Dan Kilpatrick at the London Stadium

20:26 , Matt Verri

A goal in keeping with Spurs this season. They’ve been poor in possession but remain lethal on the counter-attack.

20:25 , Matt Verri

37 mins: West Ham dominating possession since falling behind, been a decent response. Benrahma’s deflected strike rolled straight to Lloris.

Fornals puts a ball into the box, charged down and it will be a corner for the hosts.

Malik Ouzia at the London Stadium

20:24 , Matt Verri

How ruthless was that? From the moment Rice played his pass, charged into the Spurs box and didn’t get a return, you just knew the home side were exposed.

GOAL! West Ham 0-1 Tottenham | Thilo Kehrer OG 34’

20:22 , Matt Verri

Rice looks for the one-two with Benrahma, doesn’t come off and Spurs can break.

Kulusevski plays in Kane on the overlap, he plays the ball across the face of goal and Kehrer turns it into his own goal with Son lurking behind.

Spurs take the lead!

Dan Kilpatrick at the London Stadium

20:19 , Matt Verri

It hasn’t been a great start for Yves Bissouma, who is seeing a lot of the ball but struggling to make his mark, and has already been booked for a petulantly throwing the ball away.

Spurs need a bit more dynamism from the debutant.

20:18 , Matt Verri

30 mins: Hammers fans furious as Son gets a free-kick just inside his own half. Kehrer got a combination of ball and man - Spurs maybe fortunate to get the decision.

Really competitive first half an hour at the London Stadium, it’s flown by after that delayed start.

20:16 , Matt Verri

28 mins: Perisic has been a real threat down the left wing for Spurs.

He skips past Coufal, who offers minimal resistance as he stumbles to the ground. Decent cross in from Perisic too, but it’s well defended and West Ham clear the danger.

20:13 , Matt Verri

25 mins: File that under ‘tame’. Very tame.

Kulusevski plays the ball inside to Hojbjerg, who is running onto it from about 30 yards out. He decided to side-foot an effort at goal, barely reaches Fabianski. The easiest of saves.

By the way Sanchez has joined Bissouma in the book, for an earlier foul.

Malik Ouzia at the London Stadium

20:12 , Matt Verri

It’s perhaps not saying a great deal, and they’ve had a VAR let-off, but this is the best 20 minutes of West Ham have produced in the League this season by some way.

20:11 , Matt Verri

22 mins: ALMOST!

Wow that’s so close for West Ham. Benrahma feeds Antonio and he runs at Dier. Curls an effort at goal from the edge of the box, coming back towards the far corner... flicks off the post.

Inches away from giving West Ham the lead.

20:09 , Matt Verri

21 mins: Bissouma earns an entirely pointless yellow card.

Catches Bowen late, clear free-kick and he then punches the ball away. Like he wanted a yellow card.

Dan Kilpatrick at the London Stadium

20:09 , Matt Verri

Fans in the ground cannot have had much of an idea why that decision was made or overturned since there were no replays on the big screen. Surely match-going supporters deserve better.

20:06 , Matt Verri

18 mins: Great effort from Rice!

Ball bobbles around, falls to him 20 yards out and he just hammers an effort at goal. Straight at Lloris so a comfortable save, but Rice caught that nicely. Gets the crowd up again.

NO PENALTY!

20:04 , Matt Verri

Conte and Tottenham less than impressed.

Every angle of the incident seemed to make it more difficult to work out what had happened. Looked to have actually bounced off Cresswell and then onto his arm.

Decision overturned.

20:02 , Matt Verri

VAR having a long look. Kane’s header was blocked by Cresswell’s arm, which was stretched right out but it did hit him from close range.

Think this will probably stay a penalty, but the review is taking an absolute age.

Any chance of a decision?

PENALTY TOTTENHAM!

19:59 , Matt Verri

11 mins: Davies with a good pass through the lines to Kulusevski, he’s shut down though on the edge of the box as he looks to work the ball onto his left foot.

Perisic clips a cross into the box, Kane’s header is blocked... by a hand! Penalty Spurs.

Malik Ouzia at the London Stadium

19:58 , Matt Verri

Kurt Zouma takes a wallop off Lloris but is soon back into the thick of it. Just as well, to be honest, because Angelo Ogbonna’s been sent out to warm-up but appears to be wearing running trainers.

19:56 , Matt Verri

8 mins: Hammers are on the charge here, they’ve really got going. Fornals curls an effort towards the far corner, Lloris turns it behind for a corner.

Good delivery into the box, Lloris palms it away and gets clattered by Zouma as he does. Free-kick - West Ham defender looks to have hurt himself in the process.

19:54 , Matt Verri

6 mins: First sign of a West Ham attack as they break quickly and threaten to catch Spurs out.

Benhrama feeds it to Bowen who has plenty of space in behind Perisic. Goes for goal with his right foot, drags it badly wide.

Malik Ouzia at the London Stadium

19:53 , Matt Verri

West Ham’s shape is interesting here. They’re playing with a back-four in possession but Pablo Fornals seems to be dropping back into left-wing-back when they haven’t got the ball, presumably to match up with Spurs.

Already, though, the visitors have had a couple of raids down that flank.

19:51 , Matt Verri

3 mins: Good start this from Spurs, Emerson has a lot of room to stroll forward on the right.

He fires a shot at goal from 25 yards out, swerving a bit and Fabianski makes a bit of a mess of palming it out. Luckily just about wide enough to avoid Son following in.

19:50 , Matt Verri

2 mins: Son demanding the whistle gets blown as he goes down in the box, under a challenge from Kehrer.

It does indeed - free-kick West Ham. Not quite what Son was asking for, he thought he had been dragged down.

KICK-OFF!

19:48 , Matt Verri

Underway at the London Stadium - let’s hope it’s 90 minutes of entertainment and drama to come!

Took a bit of a delay after some technical difficulties for the officials, but we’re up and running.

19:42 , Matt Verri

Paqueta has been presented to the Hammers fans ahead of kick-off, which has only helped the atmosphere.

Players are out onto the pitch - kick-off coming up very soon!

Malik Ouzia at the London Stadium

19:36 , Matt Verri

Conte expecting tough challenge

19:31 , Matt Verri

“We know very well the difficulty of playing West Ham - we’re talking about a really good team. At home I also think they’re stronger.

“We’ve prepared the game very well, our expectation is to have a tough game.”

Moyes’s pre-match thoughts

19:23 , Matt Verri

On Scamacca: “He’s had a virus since the Aston Villa game. He’s not trained, not been in for a few days. We’re trying to get him over it. It’s not serious but he’s not in a position to be involved.”

On Paqueta: “He’s not even passed the ball to most of the players yet - the timings haven’t worked. Everybody wants to see him, some times you just have to be patient. We’ll try and use him at the right moment.”

Spurs consider James swoop

19:10 , Matt Verri

Tottenham are among the clubs exploring a deadline-day deal for Leeds United’s Dan James but the winger is happy to remain in Yorkshire.

Spurs are in the market for a replacement for Bryan Gil, who wants to return to La Liga side Valencia on loan for the rest of the season.

They are one a number of clubs interested in James after Leeds indicated they would allow the 24-year-old to leave Elland Road before tomorrow’s transfer deadline.

Further talks are expected on Thursday but James is thought to be content where he is and not pushing for a late move.

Milestone for Rice!

19:03 , Matt Verri

No Scamacca for West Ham

18:54 , Matt Verri

West Ham return to a back four, with Emerson dropping to the bench as Cresswell starts. Up front it’s Antonio leading the line, as Scamacca misses out on the squad entirely.

New signing Paqueta is on the bench and could make his debut tonight.

For Tottenham, Bissouma starts in midfield in the absence of Bentancur. Richarlison once again has to settle for a place on the bench, alongside Skipp. Romero not in the squad.

Big decisions for both managers to make, ahead of a hectic run of matches. All will be revealed very soon!

Dier: Schedule makes no sense

18:33 , Matt Verri

Eric Dier has criticised the the Premier League schedule as Tottenham prepare for a hectic run of games, starting tonight at West Ham.

Ahead of the visit to the London Stadium, the first in a run of unbroken midweek fixtures until the World Cup, Dier said the calendar “doesn’t make sense”.

Spurs have begun the season with three clear midweeks but will play three times a week until mid-November, aside from the September international break.

“I enjoy playing, I don’t mind. For me, it’s no problem,” Dier told Standard Sport. “I enjoy playing midweek games and I think we should enjoy playing as much as we can.

“I just think the schedule doesn’t make sense in that for three [weeks] we’ve had one game a week.”

Moyes had Paqueta fears

18:16 , Matt Verri

David Moyes has admitted he did not think West Ham would be able to pull off the signing of Lucas Paqueta, having been dazzled by the Brazilian’s performance for Lyon in last season’s Europa League quarter-final.

Paqueta was unveiled as Moyes’ eighth signing of the summer on Monday, arriving in a club-record deal that could be worth £51.2million including add-ons.

The 25-year-old was part of the Lyon side beaten 4-1 on aggregate by Moyes’ men last term but his arrival at the London Stadium represents a significant statement of intent.

“I’m really pleased,” Moyes said. “We’ve been watching him for a long time and he really came to our attention when he played against us for Lyon and he was the standout player.”

Strength of squads to be revealed

18:01 , Matt Verri

David Moyes and Antonio Conte were the Premier League’s most reluctant tinkerers last season, but both managers will be forced to rotate over the course of a gruelling run of games, which begins in earnest with tonight’s derby at the London Stadium, writes Dan Kilpatrick.

Between now and the break for the World Cup in mid-November, West Ham and Tottenham play every mid-week — with the exception of the September international break — and both bosses should discover the true strength of their new-look squads.

Moyes made the fewest changes of any top-flight manager last season — just 61 over 38 games — despite West Ham reaching the Europa League semi-finals, while Conte barely altered his XI from February onwards.

Prediction

17:53 , Matt Verri

West Ham have struggled in every game so far this season, with their only win so far coming against a poor Aston Villa side via a deflected goal.

Tottenham are grinding out results without necessarily impressing, but have more than enough to win tonight.

Spurs to win, 3-1.

Tottenham team news

17:44 , Matt Verri

For Spurs, Cristian Romero and Oliver Skipp are back training with the squad with the Argentine in contention to return for tonight’s game. Lucas Moura and Bryan Gil are also sidelined.

Richarlison laid on Kane’s second goal against Nottingham Forest and will want to be rewarded with a start in light of Heung-min Son’s slow start to the campaign.

Predicted Tottenham XI (3-4-3): Lloris; Sanchez, Dier, Davies; Emerson, Bissouma, Hojbjerg, Sessegnon; Kulusevski, Kane, Son

West Ham team news

17:34 , Matt Verri

West Ham are likely to be without new recruit Lucas Paqueta tonight. Fellow summer signing Gianluca Scamacca will be pushing for another start, though he was quiet against Aston Villa.

Angelo Ogbonna and Vladimir Coufal are fit again, but Nayef Aguerd, Craig Dawson, Ben Johnson and Aaron Cresswell are expected to miss out.

Predicted West Ham XI (4-3-3): Fabianski; Coufal, Kehrer, Zouma, Emerson; Soucek, Rice, Fornals; Benrahma, Bowen, Antonio.
