Tottenham striker Harry Kane answered his critics as he celebrated his 200th Premier League appearance with a goal in a 2-0 victory over West Ham.

Jose Mourinho passionately defended Kane’s ability to score goals in his team before the match, listing the scoring records of all of his former strikers.

But such is Kane’s prowess there are very little tactics that would not see him find the net regularly and his late strike against the Hammers, which came after Tomas Soucek’s own goal had put Spurs in front, was his 137th league goal for the club and his eighth in 12 games under Mourinho.

It sealed three points which aid Tottenham’s Champions League ambitions as they move a point behind Wolves and Manchester United in the race for fifth – which as it stands is good enough – ahead of their games on Wednesday.

For West Ham it was a defeat that leaves them out of the bottom three on goal difference and with Chelsea to play next at the weekend, relegation fears are deepening for the Hammers.

Final score: Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 West Ham United
