West Ham’s U21 side managed to take a point from Tottenham, bringing Spurs’ unbeaten start to their league campaign to an end thanks to a goal from Sean Moore.

Going into yesterday’s tie, Tottenham had won 11 out of 11 matches in the league, so West Ham’s youngsters certainly knew they would have their work cut out if they were to be able to pick up a result. In what proved to be an even matchup, with both sides creating a host of chances, it would be just shy of the hour mark before the Hammers took the lead.

A quickly taken free kick from George Earthy found Sean Moore who cut inside and fired home to score his third goal in his last four league matches. Tottenham’s equaliser came ten minutes later thanks to a goal from Spanish winger Yago Santiago.

Following the hosts making it 1-1, West Ham had some chances to go in front, however Kamarai Swyer and George Earthy were unable to convert these opportunities on the counter attack. The Hammers back three of Laing, Luizao and Kaelan Casey remained strong and resolute and successfully absorbed the late pressure from Spurs to seal a well deserved point away from home. West Ham remain second in the league table following yesterday’s point, four points behind league leaders Tottenham who remain top of the table.

Speaking after the game, as reported by the clubs Official Website, West Ham goal scorer Sean Moore said: “It was a great performance from us and maybe we had chances to win the game, but Tottenham are a top side, who have not been beaten (in PL2) all season. So it was a good point in the end.”

West Ham’s U21s are back in action next Friday as they take on Brighton in the quarter final of the Premier League International Cup. Kick off is at 7pm at the Rush Green Stadium.
