West Ham 0-2 Tottenham

Dec 9, 2008

Ledley King and Jamie O’Hara scored the goals which earned Tottenham victory in a hard-fought derby against West Ham.

Spurs striker Roman Pavlyuchenko hit the post just before half-time but defender King met Aaron Lennon’s cross on 68 minutes to open the scoring.

West Ham almost levelled but Heurelho Gomes made a fine double stop from Lucas Neill and David Di Michele.

From that chance, Spurs broke and substitute O’Hara fired in a superb shot to seal the victory.

The victory, manager Harry Redknapp’s fourth consecutive success at Upton Park, saw Spurs replace the Hammers in 15th place in the Premier League table.
