West Ham boss David Moyes speaking to BBC MOTD: “It is a great result for us. Today we felt it was a big, big task. Tottenham are one of the top sides and have fantastic players. For us to get a result and keep our momentum going is really good.
“There was a period we could have gone 2-0 up when we went 1-0 up and we didn’t take it, so that allowed Tottenham to grow in confidence as the game went on.”

Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho speaking to BBC MOTD: “The way we finished the game showed it was not a physical problem that stopped us having a result.
“I think we did [have enough to win]. Losing 1-0 at half-time you have to lift the players and play better in the second half, which we did.
