With 20 minutes left to play of the London derby between West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur, the match appeared to be destined to be heading towards a 0-0 draw.
Both defences had been on top throughout, with goal scoring chances at a premium.
There was no real class about the opener when it arrived, and it owed much to Harry Kane’s lack of defensive awareness as anything else.
As a West Ham corner came in, Kane’s pathetic attempt at stopping Michail Antonio got the treatment it deserved as the attacker just flung out a leg and diverted the ball past Hugo Lloris.
? “The man who had a trial at Tottenham as a 14-year-old relishes tearing through them!”
Michail Antonio has done it again for West Ham ?
