Mauricio Pochettino got the dream start he had hoped when Eric Dier snatched a late goal in the closing stages of the feisty encounter at Boleyn Ground.
The home side had the first initiative when Tottenham’s Kyle Naugthon blocked Kevin Nolan’s shot that resulted in red card and a penalty for Westham. However, Mark Noble’s spot kick went just wide.
In the second half, Stewart Downing went agonizingly close from 20yards. Soon afterwards, James Collins got his marching orders.
