West Ham 1 Tottenham 3: Son double seals quarter-final spot

West Ham 1 Tottenham 3: Son double seals quarter-final spot

The Hammers were twice pegged back by a stubborn Clarets side, but late goals from Felipe Anderson and Javier Hernandez earned Manuel Pellegrini's team all three points.

West Ham continued to dominate after the restart and Anderson regained their lead with a fine finish on 68 minutes following good link-up play by Arnautovic and Diangana.

Wood had not scored in 10 English Premier League games - his longest barren spell since 2014 - but he got Burnley's second goal in a 4-2 defeat at West Ham, where an injured Reid watched from the sidelines. "I don't believe too many players will be ready and fresh to play".

If Pellegrini's talk of not being "happy" with the Brazilian's performances was viewed from outside as a form of tough love, Anderson probably thought otherwise.

One of West Ham's biggest problems so far this season has been a lack of cohesion between their undoubtedly talented attackers, but there were no such issues on Saturday, as they created lots of chance and looked very lively. He knew from the beginning that despite playing bad against Tottenham, he was going to play today.

The defender had clattered Arnautovic moments earlier so it was a sweet moment for the Austrian who pointedly celebrated in the embarrassed Tarkowski's face.

Tottenham Hotspur's South Korean attacker Son Heung-min has ended his scoring drought this season after netting two goals against West Ham United.

"I guarantee if he rolls around, flinging his arms around - and credit to him for just falling normally - they get a penalty". After that we made mistakes.

'I've always liked to beat players and tried to entertain people, ' Diangana said afterwards.

"We are going to assess all the players and it is less than 48 hours to compete again having had the circumstance of playing on a pitch that is so hard to play on - it was tough and a very competitive game".

"We were twice ahead, they drew twice, then we scored the third and then wanted to score a fourth, not just to defend our advantage". Instead, it was Burnley who got the game's second goal as Gudmundsson broke the offside trap and finished beyond Lukasz Fabianski after latching on to Ashley Westwood's defence-splitting pass.

But the Turf Moor chief insists the margins remain fine.
