Tottenham Hotspur Held By West Ham, Everton Hit Back At Newcastle United


Tottenham missed the chance to move into the Premier League top four after a 1-1 draw with West Ham, while Newcastle were also held to a 1-1 draw by Everton on Tuesday. Spurs have made a habit of overcoming slow starts to win in recent months, but this time they failed to take advantage, scoring after just five minutes. Brennan Johnson was left with the simple task of tapping into the empty net from Timo Werner's cross. West Ham were under pressure to respond after falling 3-1 behind and losing 4-3 at Newcastle on Saturday.

The Hammers quickly equalized as Jarrod Bowen's corner hit the back of Kurt Zouma.

The draw left West Ham one point ahead of Newcastle in seventh, but they missed their best chance to take all three points when Michail Antonio fired straight at Guglielmo Vicario.

Tottenham are two points clear of fourth-placed Aston Villa and have extended their lead over sixth-placed Manchester United to nine points.

Spurs boss Ange Postecoglou said, “Disappointed not to get a better result, but a tough game.”

“There are still a lot of games left to play. I would be very surprised if all the games are not tight. Everyone is fighting for something. We have to maintain our level.”

Everton's unwanted record

Injury-hit Newcastle's hopes of European football next season were dealt a blow when Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored a late equalizer for Everton from the penalty spot.

Alexander Isaac opened the scoring with a goal for the fifth consecutive game at St James' Park.

The Swede took his tally to 19 for the season when he cut inside Jarrad Branthwaite and headed into the far corner on 15 minutes.

Newcastle manager Eddie Howe said, “Alexander Isak is an excellent technician.” “It looks like he's going to score in every game at the moment.”

How Sean Dyche yearns for a striker of Isaac's quality. But Calvert-Lewin ended a nearly six-month goal drought after Ashley Young was brought down by Paul Dummett inside the box.

Everton set a new club record of 13 Premier League games without a win, putting their 70-year stay in the top flight still under threat.

The Toffees remain four points above the relegation zone but are at risk of having another point deducted for breaching financial regulations.

Nottingham Forest won 3–1 in the first half at Fulham to move three points clear of the relegation zone.

Callum Hudson-Odoi and Chris Wood scored inside the first 19 minutes to get the home side out of the blocks at the City Ground.

Fulham boss Marco Silva showed his disgust by making a triple substitution after just half an hour.

However, that didn't stop Forest's momentum as Morgan Gibbs-White made it 3–0 in first-half stoppage time.

Forest boss Nuno Espirito Santo said, “It is important but it cannot distract us because we still have a long way to go.”

“We have performed well in the past and we haven't been able to maintain that, so let's take that into this game and try to maintain that performance.”

Fulham scored a goal through Tosin Adarabioyo in the second half but it was too little, too late for the Cottagers.

Second-placed Burnley are now unbeaten in four games but moved six points adrift of safety after a 1-1 draw at home to Wolves.
