West Ham United 2-0 Tottenham: Spurs' Europa League hopes Hammered

Upton Park

West Ham United beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 at Upton Park earlier today.

West Ham United beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 on Saturday afternoon to ensure their Premier League safety for another season. An own goal from Harry Kane and a Stewart Downing strike gave the Hammers all three points.

The home side took the lead in the 27th minute when an Andy Carroll header went in off Kane.  Downing then made it two just before half-time from a free-kick.

Tottenham's bad day began when Younes Kaboul was dismissed for a foul on Downing, and it did not get any better.

The loss means Manchester United can now climb above Spurs into sixth place if Ryan Giggs' side win both their games-in-hand.

West Ham can now relax, safe in the knowledge that their 40 points will keep them in the top-flight.
