Tottenham's Dele Alli: Mauricio Pochettino was key to signing new contract

Wood's latest goal saw Burnley get back on level terms at 2-2, but the Lancashire club coughed up a soft goal through a defensive blunder to allow Brazilian midfielfder Felipe Anderson to net his second strike of the match. The third goal is a real blow and we are chasing the game when they score the last one.

West Ham United were 4-2 winners against Burnley on Saturday afternoon at the London Stadium and fans were delighted with the performance of one of their stars after the final whistle.

Son's goals - his first since March - were Tottenham's only opportunities of note amid a barrage of West Ham attacks, though, and the hosts' pressure paid off when Lucas Perez headed in with 19 minutes remaining.

West Ham should have been out of sight by half-time but Joe Hart denied Arnautovic, Ben Mee somehow headed Anderson's curler off the line and referee Roger East missed a blatant penalty after Steven Defour tripped Grady Diangana.

"For 90 minutes we dominated completely", Arnautovic said.


Five minutes later, Wood rose above the Hammers defence to power home a header from fellow substitute Jeff Brady's corner.

With just 48 hours between this game and their defeat to Premier League title rivals Manchester City, Pochettino had little choice but to make wholesale changes.

West Ham have been Wood's lucky team since he joined Burnley on a $26 million transfer from Leeds United a year ago.

Burnley have now lost their last three matches, shipping 13 goals in the process. My feeling is that it is going to be hard to repeat some players. James Tarkowski, meanwhile, endured a torrid afternoon, making a costly mistake for West Ham's opener and he was fortunate to not see red for a wild challenge on Diangana in the build-up to West Ham's second goal. "We were even the better side for long spells in the Carabao Cup tie - but once again, Spurs took their opportunities as they came along and the cup run has ended".

The academy product finished the game with six completed dribbles, more than any other player on the pitch.
