Premier League: Tottenham stuck at West Ham

Tottenham's Champions League quest, fifth, was slowed down at West Ham (1-1), Tuesday during a happy 31st day for Nottingham Forest who, by beating Fulham (3-1), moved away from the zone red.

. Occasion manquée pour Tottenham

Tottenham had the opportunity to recover the precious fourth qualifying place in the Champions League, currently held by Aston Villa, but Spurs missed their chance at the London stadium.

However, they took less than five minutes to defeat the West Ham defense on a point-blank recovery from Brennan Johnson, well served by Timo Werner (5th, 0-1).

But their host reacted quickly to a corner from Jarrod Bowen taken victoriously, from behind, by French captain Kurt Zouma (19th, 1-1), named “man of the match”.

Tottenham had a match point in added time but Lukasz Fabianski, starting in the absence of Alphonse Areola (forfeited due to injury), blocked Destiny Udogie's shot (90th 4).

The north London club is two points behind Aston Villa (4th, 59 pts), traveling to Manchester City on Wednesday.

West Ham (7th, 45 pts) for its part maintains a unit lead over Newcastle, who emerged disappointed on Tuesday from their duel against poorly ranked Everton (1-1).

The “Magpies” came close to a second victory in a row, three days after knocking out the “Hammers” (4-3) in a stunning end to the match.

But this time, it was the visitors who snatched a point as the final whistle approached, with an equalizer from a penalty in the 88th minute from Dominic Calvert-Lewin, his first goal since the end of October.

Newcastle had taken the match from the right end, however, with the fifth goal in four matches from Alexander Isak (15th, 1-0), served well by Harvey Barnes.

But the team led by Eddie Howe, drained by the injured (Pope, Lascelles, Botman, Trippier, Joelinton, Almiron...) and the suspended (Gordon and Tonali), did not manage to drive the point home, because from VAR (60th, goal canceled for offside) then from Vitali Mykolenko, author of a save on the goal line in the 67th.

Everton (16th, 26 pts) extends its series of matches without a victory to thirteen, but the point brought back from St James' Park allows it to move a little further away from Luton (18th, 22 pts), the current first relegation which faces Arsenal on Wednesday.

Also in the fight for maintenance, Nottingham Forest (17th, 25 pts) gave themselves some breathing room with a 3-1 home victory against Fulham.

This is only the second in 2024 for the club in the red jersey, hit in March by a withdrawal of four points in the standings for an infringement of financial rules.

At home, the “Reds” did not hang around since their three goals came in the first period, via Callum Hudson Odoi (9th), Chris Wood (19th) and Morgan Gibbs-White (45th 3).

Opposite, coach Marco Silva tried to shock with a triple change in the 33rd minute, but Fulham only managed to reduce the gap a little after returning from the locker room through Tosin Adarabioyo (50th, 3-1 ).

Lower in the standings, the penultimate Burnley (19th, 19 pts) had a fourth match without defeat, a first this season, at home against Wolverhamtpon (1-1).

The Clarets travel to Everton on Saturday, a match both teams will not want to lose.
