West Ham United certainly take their rivalry with Tottenham Hotspur seriously, while we are more focused on the red part of North London.
The Hammers became the first side in a competitive football match to beat Tottenham Hotspur at their new 62,062 capacity seater home when they ran out 1-0 winners courtesy of a Michail Antonio goal.
While Tottenham have memories of another top-four finish along with making it through to the Champions League final for the first time in their history following a campaign filled with drama and excitement, West Ham still appear to be living off the victory in N17.
Centre-half Issa Diop has claimed that the three points they picked up in the Premier League at Spurs was his personal high point of the campaign.
Whether Diop is just making these comments to win favour among the West Ham fans is unknown, however, it does give a certain indication into the ambitions of their players if their highlight of the season is a win away from home.
If Tottenham’s highlight of the season becomes a win away to Arsenal, we are certainly on a downward spiral rather than challenging for trophies on both home and foreign soil.
