Tottenham Held At West Ham, Miss Chance To Go 4th

Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou said he would like a “joystick” to control his players like in a video game after they were held to a draw by West Ham.

The Spurs boss was left frustrated as his side missed the chance to move into the Premier League top four with the draw at a rain-soaked London Stadium.

Brennan Johnson’s tap-in put them ahead after five minutes, but the Hammers levelled when Kurt Zouma headed home from a corner.

Both sides showed endeavour but lacked a cutting edge as the spoils were shared.

Despite having 68% possession, Spurs only had four shots on target, including Johnson’s early opener and Destiny Udogie volleying straight at home goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski in second-half stoppage time.

They never looked likely to achieve the two-goal margin of victory they needed to overtake fourth-placed Aston Villa, who face Manchester City on Wednesday at Etihad Stadium.

Postecoglou’s side remain fifth, two points behind Villa, and the Australian said his team missed “clarity of thought” at times in attack.
