West Ham ends PL losing run with 2-0 win over Tottenham.

London, May 4 ( ANI ): West Ham United has ended a run of four successive defeats in the Premier League with an impressive 2-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday at the Upton Park, ensuring their safety among the top flight.

Sam Allardyce's side has enjoyed their third win this season over Tottenham, which has failed to regain a top-four place in the league and are still not assured of a Europa League spot with Manchester United able to overhaul them.

According to the BBC, Spurs had Younes Kaboul sent off for a foul on Stewart Downing before the hosts took the lead when Andy Carroll's header went in off Harry Kane, following which Downing extended the hosts' lead with a low 20-yard free-kick.

The defeat will not have boosted Tim Sherwood's hopes of keeping his job at White Hart Lane, though the club this week denied claims they had enquired about Ajax coach Frank de Boer's availability, the report added. ( ANI )
