Huge night for West Ham as Tottenham fold like a cheap suit with top four race heating up

West Ham fans were buzzing last night after Tottenham lost at home to Southampton in the Premier League and the top four race heated up as a result.

The race for the top four is well and truly alive now as we head into the final third of the season.

The Hammers currently sit four points and three places ahead of Tottenham in the Premier League table.

Spurs have three games in hand over us but they still need to win them and until they do, nobody can say we are in a false position.

Last night’s result at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium proved that.

West Ham handed big boost by Tottenham in the race for the top four

Tottenham played host to Southampton in the Premier League last night.

When Heung-Min Son scored for Spurs in the 70th minute, it seemed as though the north London club were about to close the gap on the Hammers to just one point.

Southampton had other ideas though, and goals from Mohamed Elyounoussi and Che Adams in the 79th and 82nd minutes respectively won the game for them in the end.

Lost 3-2 at home having led 2-1 earlier on during the game really is….well, Spursy.

Tottenham’s next four games will be crucial. Antonio Conte’s men face a home game against Wolves on Sunday before three consecutive alway games against Manchester City, Burnley and Leeds.

During that period we face games against Leicester away and Newcastle and Wolves at home.

This mini period could be an absolutely huge part of the season as far as the top four race is concerned.

Arsenal, Manchester United and even Wolves are in with a shout still. So it’s far from a foregone conclusion.

Tottenham’s defeat at home to Southampton gave everyone at the London Stadium a huge lift, however, as David Moyes tries to guide this team to the Champion League this season.

And last night was evidence one again that there are plenty more twists and turns still to come this season.
