The Spurs, who were beaten at the hands of Vitesse Arnhem, suffered another defeat at the hands of West Ham as the Hammers made their way into the top four on the Premier League table.

Tottenham failed to meet the back of the net as they endured their fifth consecutive loss in the Premier League derby as Michail Antonio was on target.

Harry Kane hasn’t managed to net a goal in his last London Derbies. Nuno, on the other hand, thinks his side dominated the game and did not deserve to lose.

"All the game I think we played better, we were better than West Ham," Nuno told Tottenham's official media post-match.

"We controlled the game, the possession, the first half we created chances but we needed to be more accurate with them.

"All the game was under the control but just a moment from a set-piece we lacked our typical focus and then we concede.

"The boys were prepared, they did a good job. The aspects we need to improve are we need to be aggressive in the final third and be more accurate with the passes.

The Spurs coach did not make any substitutions until the final minutes of the game, introducing Bryan Gil and Giovani Lo Celso as he aimed to break the lock.

The ex-Wolves manager defended his alternation delay while talking about how hard the Hammers’ defence was to breach.

"

No, the game like I said was under control,"

Nuno told reporters at his post-match news conference.

"Changes are required when we think we should [make them]. The boys were playing good and then we made the changes in the moment that we felt that the team needed.

"Because West Ham defend in the box with a lot of men, there was not much space and we should've moved the ball faster and go to wide areas.

"But is always difficult when the team and all men are behind the ball, it is difficult to find spaces and gaps.

"It is always frustrating, a London derby that we know means a lot to our fans, means a lot to us and we were not able to win it. I am disappointed because it hurts, I know it hurts."
