Tottenham Hotspur have taken the lead against West Ham United after 63 minutes of action in North London.

Giovani Lo Celso whipped in a corner to the six-yard box which faintly touched the head of Lucas Moura and the ball landed at the feet of Hammers defender Tomas Soucek, who could not stop the ball from going into his own net.

Spurs thought they had taken the lead just moments before the half time break when Heung-min Son fired home, only for VAR to judge that the South Korean had been fractionally offside in the build up.

The match has hardly been a classic with both sides failing to carve out too many clear cut opportunities, but it is Spurs who have got their noses ahead.
