(82′ mins): With little under twenty-minutes remaining, Mourinho introduced Bale for his second Spurs debut. Meanwhile, Kane was denied the match ball – hos strike coming back off the post after a neat exchange with Son.

West Ham did pull one back. Fabian Balbuena heading home from a Cresswell free-kick. It was no more than the East Londoners deserved. Their toil, honest – quality slightly lacking.
