West Ham 2 Spurs 1

Carl Fletcher's first Premiership goal and a late winner from Benayoun ended Spurs' Champions League dreams. Some of the Spurs players had apparently been struck down with food poisoning before the game and it showed in the opening minutes as the Hammers went close twice. Both Reo-Coker and Benayoun had good chances to open the scoring before Flethcher's stunning 30 yard goal in the tenth minute.

Defoe equalised for Spurs before the break, beating Danny Gabbidon and firing inside the far post. Six minutes after the restart Tainio brought down Zamora in the box but Sheringham scuffed the penalty to keep the Spuds' hopes alive. However their hopes were soon dashd when Harewood's backheel found Benayoun, who sidestepped Michael Dawson and fired into the top corner.

With Arsenal winning 4-2 at Wigan the Spurs fans then had to face the taunts of the West Ham fans for the rest of the game.

I'm now off to the Football Mad boards to continue the taunting.
