Tottenham legend, Graham Roberts, has singled out three Spurs players for praise following the club’s 2-0 victory over West Ham on Tuesday night.
Spurs sealed all three points after an own goal from West Ham’s Tomáš Souček opened the scoring, before Harry Kane sealed the deal with a tidy finish (BBC).
Roberts took to Twitter to commend the efforts of Harry Kane, Eric Dier, and Giovani Lo Celso following the final whistle at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
I am going to give a huge shout out tonight to @ericdier looked so sharp and delighted for him. Also @LoCelsoGiovani excellent and typical old @HKane cool calm finish. Well done boys @SpursOfficial ??

Spurs were left frustrated after a disappointing first-half that saw Heung-min Son’s strike from inside the box disallowed due to a narrow offside call by VAR.
However, Spurs came out in the second half as much more driven and dangerous attacking unit, with Kane scoring his first goal of the year following a six-month absence from football due to a torn hamstring.
Eric Dier kept a clean sheet and looked impressive at the back while Giovani Lo Celso dictated play from midfield and earned the Man of the Match award.
Spurs Web Opinion
Kane certainly grew back into the striker we all know and love after a quiet night against United on Friday. However, Lo Celso was absolutely superb – what a player he could be for us. It was a shame Dier gave away the penalty against United on Friday as I thought he had a terrific game up until that point and it was another solid performance at CB for him against West Ham.
