Commentary

Both teams now head off for the international break. On this evidence, it's Spurs who can still dream of a top four finish. For West Ham, winning the Europa League looks their best route into the Champions League now, but any European football next season would still be welcome. That's all for now. Goodbye!
Spurs' victory lifts them to fifth in the Premier League table, three points behind Arsenal who have a game in hand. They'll find it hard to pip their neighbours to a Champions League place now, but they're well on track for a top six finish. West Ham drop to seventh. Benrahma's goal was their only shot on target here. They need to keep their energy levels up to avoid an end-of-season slump.
Tottenham keep their strong home run against West Ham going by easing to a comfortable victory! Spurs had this game under control as soon as Zouma's own goal and Son's follow-up put them 2-0 up in the first half. Benrahma's goal before the break kept the hosts on their toes, but West Ham were too tired to mount a comeback in the second half. Son grabbed his second goal late on to finish the Hammers off.
90' + 5' FULL-TIME: TOTTENHAM 3-1 WEST HAM UNITED
90' + 4' Spurs make one last attempt to embellish their win. Emerson nods Bergwijn's cross off-target with Kane in space behind him. It doesn't matter though, as they've won!
Lucas Moura
Son Heung-Min
90' + 2' Son goes off too to an ovation from the home fans and a tender embrace from Conte. On comes Lucas.
S. Bergwijn
D. Kulusevski
90' + 2' Spurs make a few late changes to wind down the clock. Bergwijn replaces Kulusevski for the last few minutes.
90' There'll be five more minutes of this as Kulusevski has two more shots blocked. The Tottenham fans are in fine voice now Spurs' win is finally secure.
H. Kane
Assist
89' Kane showed good strength to win that header for Son, who did the rest. Kane's overall play in this match has once again been exemplary. He's had a hand in all three of Spurs' goals here.
Emerson
Reguilón
88' Tottenham substitution. Emerson replaces Reguilon at wing-back.
Son Heung-Min
Goal
88' GOAL! TOTTENHAM 3-1 WEST HAM UNITED! Son wraps up the three points for Spurs! Lloris' booming goal-kick is flicked on by Kane with his head. Son latches onto it to race into the box and slots confidently past Fabianski.
86' Son is perplexed as a corner decision is given against him. West Ham send it into the box and keep it alive on the opposite side. Romero makes a good header to prevent the visitors from scoring again at the far post. Lloris eventually takes charge of the situation and secures the ball between his gloves.
N. Vlašić
M. Lanzini
84' Here's that West Ham change. Vlasic replaces Lanzini.
83' Fabianski comes off his line to kick the ball clear with Kane lurking nearby. West Ham are preparing a change to chase the game.
81' If Tottenham can score a third goal now, they'll probably be safe. Doherty's shot just inside the box is blocked before Bentancur slashes wide of the right-hand post.
79' Spurs keep circulating the ball on the edge of West Ham's box. It eventually finds its way through to Kane near the penalty spot, who flicks it over the crossbar with the inside of his right foot! The Englishman knows he should have at least worked Fabianski.
77' Kane switches the play to Son, who gets his legs up to full speed. The South Korean's path to goal is blocked, though, so he elects to find a teammate instead.
75' Spurs keep exposing West Ham down the flanks. Kulusevski rattles a shot against a defender before Reguilon stretches the play again to fire straight at Fabianski at his near post.
73' Spurs wisely slow the game down for a few seconds by passing the ball around at the back. They soon get forward again, though, as Kulusevski has a hopeful shot blocked.
71' Spurs get another decent opportunity to restore their two-goal lead. Son goes up against Johnson and passes inside to Kane. Kulusevski takes over proceedings and curls a left-footed effort over the crossbar.
70' Fornals fails to hold up Cresswell's pass near Spurs' corner flag. Romero does well to win the ball for Spurs.
68' Romero's sliding tackle deprives Soucek of possession. Spurs huff and puff on the edge of West Ham's box but don't get anywhere with it this time.
66' Doherty spots Reguilon's run at the far post and tries to find him with a first-time cross. Reguilon nods the ball against Johnson for what should be a corner, but the decision goes West Ham's way instead.
64' Fornals looks for Soucek in the centre but is unsuccessful. Kane tussles with Rice up the other end of the pitch as he tries to bustle through on goal. The battle ends up being a draw as it results in a throw-in.
62' Spurs want a penalty just as West Ham are starting to gain momentum. The Hammers get caught upfield and Reguilon races into the box before going down. The Spaniard is furious that play goes on without the referee giving the incident a second thought.
60' Bentancur plays it cool under pressure on the edge of his own box. The Uruguayan would have had a few Spurs hearts in mouths there. West Ham keep pushing down their left. Yarmolenko lashes high and wide from a tight angle.
58' Lanzini's throughball nearly finds its way through to the onrushing Benrahma. Lloris comes off his line to smother it.
56' West Ham are still creating chances on occasion. The visitors cross from the left and Antonio volleys over unmarked from the edge of the six-yard box! Dear oh dear.
Pablo Fornals
A. Masuaku
56' Masuaku also makes way. On comes Fornals for West Ham.
A. Yarmolenko
M. Antonio
56' Antonio's miss is his last act of the game. Yarmolenko comes on for West Ham, who need to keep things fresh after their prolonged bout with Sevilla.
54' Finally, Spurs get to take their corner. Masuaku gets his head to Son's delivery first. Antonio uses his strength to burst upfield and earn West Ham a throw-in.
52' Play's stopped for now as the stewards deal with an encroachment onto the pitch. There's a lot of pushing and shoving between the two teams. The referee gives Rice a verbal warning.
50' Bentancur wins possession and sends his front three racing forward. Kane shoots from the left of the box, but Fabianski makes a vital stop to hand Spurs a corner.
48' Romero tangles with Antonio and slips during his battle with the Jamaica striker. Spurs get back on the front foot quickly. Doherty takes an accidental kick to the head from Masuaku as he looks to burst onto Kane's cross. West Ham eventually get a free-kick as Doherty clatters into Fabianski.
48' West Ham smuggle the ball out as far as the edge of their own box. Kulusevski can't prevent the visitors from winning a throw-in.
47' Dawson pokes Son's optimistic cross from the left out for a Spurs corner.
46' Tottenham get the second half going. There have been no changes to the line-ups at half-time.
46' Son darts in behind from the kick-off and goes up against Zouma to cross from the byline. The offside flag eventually goes up against him.
Spurs have won all 12 of the last 12 Premier League matches they've led at half-time, dating back to the end of last season. Conte will impress upon his players the need to see this win out, but West Ham will be keen to capitalise on any further lapses of concentration by the hosts.
Tottenham head in at half-time a goal to the good. The hosts made the most of West Ham's slow start to race to a 2-0 lead through a Zouma own goal and Son's fine strike. Spurs have had the game largely under control, but the Hammers have edged their way back into it thanks to Benrahma scoring following a corner. More to come!
45' + 3' HALF-TIME: TOTTENHAM 2-1 WEST HAM UNITED
45' + 2' Masuaku tries to slalom into the box from the left but the DR Congo international's touch lets him down. Antonio picks up the pieces and crosses for Soucek at the far post. The Czech midfielder can't beat Davies to it though. That's all for now.
45' + 1' There'll be two added minutes at the end of this first half. It's been engaging enough.
45' Son's corner from the left is headed away by Johnson at the near post. Davies unfairly stops Benrahma's run forward.
44' Spurs are awarded a free-kick as soon as the corner comes in due to Zouma shoving Hojbjerg over. The hosts go up the other end and get a corner of their own through Reguilon.
43' Benrahma knocks the ball against Reguilon to earn West Ham another corner. Both teams have had two apiece now.
41' Reguilon and Johnson race after the loose ball, and the Spurs left-back bundles the West Ham right-back over. West Ham accept the free-kick.
39' Kane and Son combine through the middle a few times as they try to create another chance. The first move doesn't work out. The second results in Fabianski easily saving Kane's low drive from outside the box.
37' Reguilon's high cross from the left is lofted away. Dier shrugs off the onrushing Antonio who wants a free-kick and doesn't get it.
S. Benrahma
Goal
35' GOAL! TOTTENHAM 2-1 WEST HAM UNITED! West Ham have pulled a goal back! It's a simple one too. The visitors' outswinging corner is flicked on to the far post by Dawson. Benrahma slams the ball into the bottom right corner on the volley.
C. Dawson
Assist
35' Dawson probably didn't mean that assist, but West Ham will take it. Conte will be frustrated at how Spurs were beaten to the corner.
33' Bentancur trips Soucek near the halfway line, giving West Ham a chance to escape their half. They get forward down the left and force a corner.
31' Son swings the free-kick into the danger area. It's cleared by Rice. Spurs try to keep the pressure on as Hojbjerg's long-range effort is blocked. Reguilon soon fires high and wide.
30' Kane gets bundled over down the right and wins a free-kick. Son will be the taker for Spurs.
28' Spurs get another corner, this time down their right-hand side. West Ham are able to see this one out too, but the visitors are having a tough time.
26' Spurs win a corner down their left off Johnson. They take it short, but West Ham manage to defend it successfully.
H. Kane
Assist
24' That was a fine throughball by Kane, but West Ham are getting caught in transition far too easily at the moment. The extra-time they played against Sevilla midweek does seem to have sapped their energy here.
Son Heung-Min
Goal
24' GOAL! TOTTENHAM 2-0 WEST HAM! West Ham get punished on the break again! Kane sends Son scampering into the left of the box. The South Korean evades a challenge to lash the ball into the top right corner with his left foot, helped by a slight touch off Zouma.
C. Dawson
Yellow Card
23' Dawson picks up a yellow card for scything Son down as Spurs successfully defend Cresswell's free-kick and look to counter.
21' West Ham are awarded a free-kick not too far into Spurs' half. Cresswell gets ready to take it.
19' West Ham are venturing over the halfway line every so often, but their overall play looks quite sluggish. Spurs, meanwhile, are fully switched on.
17' West Ham have had the lion's share of possession in the opening 15 minutes or so: 60 per cent of it, to be exact. That seems to be part of Spurs' gameplan.
15' Benrahma reaches the byline and hangs a cross towards the far post. Antonio heads comfortably off-target from inside the six-yard box.
13' Bentancur wins a free-kick in his own half as he's impeded by Soucek. West Ham are lacking incision so far.
11' Antonio bustles into the box and drags an effort across goal. Up the other end, Son receives the ball from Kulusevski and hits the right-hand post! West Ham survive going 2-0 down already.
Own Goal
9' GOAL! TOTTENHAM 1-0 WEST HAM UNITED! Spurs take an early lead! Doherty nips in to win possession high up the pitch and slips Kane into the right of the box. The Englishman squares the ball for Son in the centre. Zouma beats him to it but can only divert it past Fabianski. That will go down as a Zouma own goal.
8' West Ham' distribution from the back has been wayward a few times already so far. Tottenham will no doubt look to exploit that.
6' There's not been a whole lot of goalmouth action yet. West Ham patiently pop the ball between themselves at the back. Zouma is getting booed every time he touches the ball. It's unclear whether that's down to his recent cat controversy or his former Chelsea spell. Probably both.
4' Soucek gets down the right and swings a hopeful cross into the box. Dier, who's sporting a black headband, chests it down for Lloris to grab.
2' The game's gotten off to a scrappy start. Neither side's found a foothold in midfield yet. Johnson's pass through the middle is easily intercepted and Spurs counter. Kane can't get his feet together on the edge of the box.
1' The visitors West Ham get this London derby underway!
Spurs have lost just two of their last 19 Premier League home games against West Ham, the last of those being in April 2019. However, the Hammers have beaten Spurs in their last two league meetings, albeit at the London Stadium. They're looking to do the league double over Spurs for the first time since 2013-14. Can they do it? Let's find out!
West Ham make just two changes to their lineup despite playing 120 minutes against Sevilla in the Europa League midweek. Fabianski returns in goal. Masuaku gets the nod ahead of Fornals.
Tottenham boss Antonio Conte sticks with the same starting 11 that competently saw off Brighton last time out. Kane has scored eight goals in his six home league games against West Ham, the most goals he's scored against any Premier League side on Spurs' patch. He'll be confident of adding to his tally here.
SUBS: Pablo Fornals, Andriy Yarmolenko, Issa Diop, Alphonse Areola, Nikola Vlasic, Alex Kral, Mark Noble, Ryan Fredericks, Sonny Perkins.
WEST HAM UNITED (4-2-3-1): Lukasz Fabianski; Ben Johnson, Craig Dawson, Kurt Zouma, Aaron Cresswell; Declan Rice, Tomas Soucek; Said Benrahma, Manuel Lanzini, Arthur Masuaku; Michail Antonio.
SUBS: Emerson, Harry Winks, Harvey White, Lucas Moura, Davinson Sanchez, Steven Bergwijn, Joe Rodon, Pierluigi Gollini, Dane Scarlett.
TOTTENHAM (3-4-3): Hugo Lloris (c); Cristian Romero, Eric Dier, Ben Davies; Matt Doherty, Rodrigo Bentancur, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Sergio Reguilon; Dejan Kulusevski, Harry Kane, Son Heung-Min.
Luckily for Spurs, they have a strong home record against West Ham, who have picked up just eight points from their last 27 available on the road. The Hammers may be above their hosts in the table at the moment, but their own European involvement next season may be in doubt if they don't start tightening up away from home.
Tottenham got back to winning ways midweek by picking up a 2-0 win away to Brighton and Hove Albion, but a top four finish is fading from view with Arsenal starting to pull away from the rest. Spurs can still return to the Champions League next season, but it's hitting that point of the season where only a string of wins will do.
