David Gold tweets Lord Sugar after Tottenham's victory, claims West Ham want revenge

David Gold says West Ham will seek revenge on Tottenham later this season.

West Ham United co-chairman David Gold took to Twitter after the club's defeat to Tottenham, telling Lord Sugar that the Hammers will seek revenge later this term.

Spurs racked up another win having thrashed the Hammers 4-1 at White Hart Lane, as two goals from Harry Kane, as well as strikes from Toby Alderweireld and Kyle Walker, put Tottenham in cruise control before Manuel Lanzini's late consolation for West Ham.

Mauricio Pochettino's men claimed bragging rights in the London derby, and Hammers boss Slaven Bilic now must pick his side up ahead of this weekend's game against West Bromwich Albion.

After the game, Hammers co-chairman David Gold took to Twitter to give his views on the game, and even sent a message to former Tottenham owner Lord Sugar.

Sugar, a Tottenham fan who ran the club for ten years, will have been understandably delighted with the performance against West Ham, and Gold did admit in his message that Spurs were the better of the two teams.

However, he also vowed that West Ham will be looking for revenge on Spurs when the two teams meet at Upton Park for the final time in March, with the Hammers set to move in to the Olympic Stadium before the start of next season.


West Ham will certainly have to improve if they are to beat Tottenham next time, but French playmaker Dimitri Payet could be back in action following his ankle injury - and that would certainly give Bilic a better chance of getting that revenge.
