Tottenham Hotspur moved to within two points of fourth-place Arsenal in the Premier League table with an impressive 4-1 London derby win over West Ham United at White Hart Lane this afternoon.
Harry Kane scored either side of a Toby Alderweireld header as Spurs stormed into a 3-0 lead, before Kyle Walker put the icing on the cake with this majestic outside-of-the-foot finish on 83 minutes.

The England defender’s first goal since December 2013 was somewhat soured when his mistake gifted West Ham a late consolation, although Manuel Lanzini still had plenty to do to beat Hugo Lloris.
Fortunately for Walker and Mauricio Pochettino, Spurs had established a comfortable cushion by that stage courtesy of Kane taking his record in league London derbies to 12 goals in 14 outings.
The 22-year-old smartly turned Carl Jenkinson to thump home Tottenham’s 22nd-minute opener, and put West Ham to the sword again on 49 minutes after Alderweireld converted a corner at the near post.
Spurs stay in fifth despite the victory – and a 12th unbeaten match since the opening day of the season – but are now clear of the chasing pack and within four points of top-of-the-table Leicester City.
