Ange Postecoglou’s team took an early lead with Cristian Romero’s header but couldn’t maintain it at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. West Ham mounted a second-half comeback, securing goals from Jarrod Bowen and James Ward-Prowse.

A victory could have brought Spurs level on points with fourth-placed Manchester City, but instead, they find themselves distancing from the top teams with another defeat. The recent trend includes four losses in their last five Premier League matches, with a solitary point earned in a thrilling 3-3 draw against City at the Etihad Stadium last Sunday.

Concerningly for Postecoglou, it’s not just the results but the manner of the defeats that raises eyebrows, especially with a busy schedule of festive fixtures looming. According to OptaJoe, injury-plagued Spurs now hold two unwanted Premier League records. They are the first team in Premier League history to falter in five consecutive games after taking a 1-0 lead and have suffered three consecutive home defeats after leading by the same scoreline.

In contrast, West Ham has found their form, winning three of their last four Premier League matches. David Moyes’ side is now just three points behind Spurs and has the potential to climb as high as fifth with a victory against Fulham on Sunday.

Tottenham must regroup after their impressive start to the season, which saw them top the Premier League table in November. They face Newcastle at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday before traveling to the City Ground to take on struggling Nottingham Forest. The comment section awaits your predictions on where Tottenham will finish in the Premier League this season.
