The forward poked in Aaron Cresswell's dipping corner to score his sixth Premier League goal of the season 18 minutes from time.

Michail Antonio of West Ham United battles for possession with Oliver Skipp of Tottenham Hotspur during the Premier League match between West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur at London Stadium on October 24, 2021 in London, England.

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 boss David Moyes' best start to a season since 2004-05 with Everton.

Tottenham sit two points behind their London rivals in sixth.

Manchester United have the chance to move above both sides when they face Liverpool at Old Trafford later.
