Former Tottenham Hotspur chairman Lord Sugar has admitted that West Ham United deserved their victory in the London derby earlier this afternoon.
Michail Antonio prodded the ball home with 17 minutes remaining as he met Aaron Cresswell’s pinpoint corner from the left and outmuscled Harry Kane in the process in the build-up.
The 74-year-old accused Spurs on Twitter of showing no fight, with Nuno Espirito Santo’s side failing to register a shot on target during the second half of the encounter at the London Stadium.
Sugar, who these days is better known for his involvement with the TV show, The Apprentice also aimed criticism at the door of Kane in which he suggested that the striker was worrying about a potential transfer away from the North Londoners.
The England international was heavily linked with a transfer to Manchester City during the summer only for a move to the Premier League champions to fail to materialise (MEN).
The better team won. No fight from Spurs . Harry worrying about his move.

Sugar is well within his rights to criticise Kane considering the forward often looked like a disinterested passenger during the derby. It simply was not good enough from Kane, his teammates or Nuno.
