West Ham boss David Moyes says the club is “blossoming” after his side beat Tottenham to climb

into the Champions League places.

Michail Antonio continued his prolific form as he poked in the winner from Aaron Cresswell’s dipping corner for his

sixth Premier League goal of the season.

Harry Kane earlier saw his back-post header tipped over the crossbar by Lukasz Fabianski, but Spurs failed to capitalise
on several decent opportunities.

The win moves West Ham to fourth in the table on 17 points, making it Moyes’ best start to a season since 2004-05 with Everton.

“We are growing characters at the moment,” said Moyes, who returned to the club in December 2019,

19 months after his first spell ended.

“Over the last couple of years they have all blossomed, they are all feeling important and feeling like

they can make a difference.

“The club is blossoming now and that comes from the players. Those players are all improving together and it is a good thing to have.”

Tottenham sit two points behind their London rivals in sixth.

Former Everton boss Moyes has struggled to leave his mark on a club since leaving Goodison Park for Manchester United in 2013 but the

58-year-old’s West Ham side are now playing with all the traits that made the Scot one of the top-flight’s most established coaches.

The last time one of his sides started a season as well as this was when he led Everton to a fourth-place finish in 04-05,

and the Hammers have similar momentum after climbing into a Champions League spot with this win over their London rivals.

Spurs now look to get their Premier League campaign back on track against Manchester United this Saturday while West Ham will visit

Aston Villa on Sunday.
