Spurs fans, this one won’t make for pleasant reading
Mauricio Pochettino’s side threw away a two goal to London rivals West Ham tonight, as the Hammers scored three second half goals to advance into the League Cup Quarter Finals.
The home side opened the scoring through France international Moussa Sissoko in the fifth minute, with starlet Dele Alli then doubling their lead later in the half thanks to a deflection.
Second half goals from Andre Ayew, who scored twice, and Angelo Ogbonna saw Slaven Bilic’s side come from behind to claim a memorable win agains their fierce rivals.
Man of the Match
Ghanian international Andre Ayew will take most of the plaudits tonight, as the forward’s excellent positioning allowed him to bag a brace and give his side a way back into the match.
The former Swansea man teamed up well with strike partner Andy Carroll tonight, and he thoroughly deserved his two goals.

Flop of the Match
Summer signing Fernando Llorente didn’t have the best of games tonight, as the Spaniard failed to make a serious impact on the game.
The forward was so bad, he was subbed off with 20 minutes to go for Moussa Dembele, a central midfielder…
This Spurs fan summed up Llorente performance tonight
Llorente was extremely poor and inefficient tbf
