‘Get Pochettino out of my club right now’ Tottenham fans explode after stalemate vs West Ham

Mauricio Pochettino’s men missed the opportunity to close down the gap on 4th-placed Liverpool, as they could only manage a 1-1 draw against David Moyes’ West Ham United at the Wembley.

As always, Tottenham dominated the strides despite playing their second Premier League game in 48 hours but were denied by a series of blocks and last-ditch saves. The game, however, witnessed two such long rangers, which can easily be termed as two of the best goals of the current Premier League campaign. It started with Pedro Obiang scoring an absolute belter from almost 35-yards out in the 70th minute.

Tottenham then reacted in the final 10 minutes when Son Heung-Min received the ball at around 30 yards out of West Ham goal. Firing a venom with his right foot, the South Korean scored a peach of a beauty and stunned the visiting crowd in no time. For West Ham, as things stand, it was a fair result given that they were without Andy Carroll and Marko Arnautovic.

The Hammers were missing two of their marksmen and the fact that they didn’t have a touch in Spurs’ penalty area by 70th minute is the perfect specimen of it. But it seems they didn’t need a touch as Pedro Obiang’s long-ranger was enough to hand them a perfect cheer.

“Obiang’s goal was better,” Son was quoted by BBC after the game. The strike was unbelievable,” he added. “We have the best goalkeeper in the world and he can’t do anything. It was a great strike.”

Complementing Obiang’s goal, Son too scored a beauty but that remained the only positive for the Lilywhites as West Ham managed to hold on to the draw.

“We only scored once – and the most difficult chance. I’m very pleased with the effort but very unhappy with the result. We deserved to win but football is like this and we have to accept that, Pochettino said after the game.

“We had to score and be effective in front of goal. To play and run like that after two games in 48 hours deserves credit.

“It was an amazing goal from Obiang, their first shot, it’s difficult to accept. Normally we would finish 3-1, 4-1, 5-1 but it wasn’t like this. I didn’t see any penalty shouts from my position. I am not going to say anything about the referee, I trust in them.”

A goal from Son means the South Korean is now directly involved in 12 goals in his last 9 home games for Tottenham in all competitions (7 goals, 5 assists). Meanwhile, this is how the fans reacted on Twitter:
