DREAM TEAM POINTS: Spurs 2 West Ham 3

What on earth did Slaven Bilic say at half-time?

Crikey, who’d be a Tottenham fan?

Just when you think you’ve worked out Mauricio Pochettino’s side, they go and do something, well, Spurs-ey.

The high-flying North Londoners went into this evening’s Carabao Cup clash against West Ham with barrel-loads of optimism.

And why not?

Even Hammers fans would admit their team were certain to lose, having won just once in their last five Premier League games.

Spurs, on the other hand, were still euphoric from their impressive midweek draw against Real Madrid in the Champions League.

So, realistically, there was only one way tonight’s game was going to go, right?

WRONG.

Admittedly, West Ham really stank in the first-half, barely causing Spurs’ goalkeeper Michel Vorm any problems with just one clear-cut chance.

Duly, Pochettino’s lads were 2-0 up at half-time, with Moussa Sissoko opening the score inside six minutes.

Crusin’, or so it seemed.

Ogbonna sealed the Hammers superb turnaround

We all expected Spurs to heap further misery on Slaven Bilic, but how wrong we were.


IS YOUR FANTASY FOOTBALL TEAM RUINED? THEN DREAM TEAM WEEKENDER IS JUST THE CURE!


The Hammers hit three goals in just 15 minutes in the second-half; two from the brilliant Andre Ayew and a header from Angelo Ogbonna.

It was some turn around.

In fact, the guy in charge of West Ham’s Twitter account could barely type when the third goal went in.

Scenes.

All we want to know is; what on earth did Bilic say at half-time?

It certainly must’ve been something special.
