Tottenham Hotspur failed to make it four victories out of five in the Premier League with a frustrating stalemate away to West Ham United, writes the HITC.
Tomas Soucek scored on 55 minutes to cancel out an earlier own goal from Thilo Kehrer which put Spurs ahead.
Tottenham went to East London after collecting 10 points from a possible 12 in the Premier League this season, narrow favourites to beat David Moyes’s troops.
However, it wasn’t to be and Jamie O’Hara has sent a frustrated tweet, singling out two of Antonio Conte’s side.
Can we please stop passing the ball back to Lloris and Sanchez there our worst players on the ball #Spurs #WHUTOT

It is a little harsh from the former Tottenham midfielder and, honestly, Conte will be slightly concerned.
Last season, the Lilywhites just didn’t win in the Premier League unless Harry Kane or Son Heung-min inspired Conte’s troops to victory.
Spurs have enjoyed a brilliant summer transfer window and the Italian manager will have hoped to shift some of the goalscoring burden to other players, like Richarlison or Dejan Kulusevski for instance.
However, Tottenham remain massively reliant on Son and Kane, as this performance demonstrated.
From West Ham’s perspective, it’s an excellent point for a side who were bottom of the Premier League table prior to last weekend.
Against this Spurs outfit, the Hammers will have taken a point before kickoff all day long and they were excellent value for their draw.
