While Tottenham’s Champions League run has been truly sensational, the Lilywhites have been in poor form in the Premier League for the past couple of months.
That is understandable as the squad which was already stretched due to injuries had to cope with both domestic and European games.
Tottenham’s late struggle meant they lost several games to teams they are generally expected to beat such as Southhampton, West Ham, and Bournemouth.
West Ham became the first away team to register a win at Tottenham’s new stadium when Michail Antonio’s strike was the first goal which Spurs conceded at their ground.
Hammers midfielder Robert Snodgrass has said that the win against Spurs was the best moment of the whole campaign for the club.
When asked to name his favourite memory of the season, the 31-year-old told West Ham’s official website:”I would say the game where we beat Spurs. I know a lot of people will say that because it was Tottenham and it was the first time a team had won at their new stadium, but collectively, as a team, it showed the level we can reach. ”
Some Spurs fans on social media couldn’t help but laugh at the comment particularly considering that the Lilywhites had beaten their London rivals twice this season – both away in the league and the Carabao Cup. Others simply reminded West Ham fans that Tottenham now have bigger fish to fry.

I would say my favourite game this season was when we beat Ajax 3-2 away to reach the CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FINAL.

Despite Tottenham’s late struggles in the league, we still managed to retain Champions League qualification for the fourth season in a row; not a bad achievement considering the lack of investment in the last two transfer windows and the problems due to the new stadium delays.
West Ham. who’ve supposedly had a decent season, have finished in 10th place, almost 20 points below Spurs, and that shows the difference in levels between the two teams.
