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:

Tottenham new stadium

Tottenham’s new stadium is towards completion and a new time-lapse video from last week has been shared which highlights the final stages of work being done.

The video begins with a view of the exterior where cranes are working on one section of the structure. The next part features an aerial view of the entire stadium. The video shows construction being done throughout the night to get the venue ready as quickly as possible.

A clip from the video showcases a section where numerous glass panes are yet to be installed, however, a number of cranes and workers are on the job.

The pitch was installed a week ago and an interior shot displays the grass and the artificial pitch lighting. It is great to see that most of the seats are installed and the LED hoardings across the seating area of the stadium.

Tottenham have no plans of signing Wilmar Barrios from Boca Junior, sources have told ESPN. The Colombian international had a decent World Cup with the national side and was linked with a move to Spurs, according to the report.

Reports (h/t ESPN) suggested that we had agreed on personal terms with the 25-year-old’s representatives and were preparing a bid for the midfielder.

However, sources have told ESPN that there were no discussions in the summer and he isn’t a target for Mauricio Pochettino in the winter window.

Spurs were the only club to not sign a player in the summer but the manager was open to signings in January.

The manager was quoted by ESPN as saying:

“In football you always need to think you can improve, and you need to try to improve your squad.

“We couldn’t sign [in the summer] for different circumstances, but we wanted to sign.

“Now January will come and we’re going to try to sign. I think it’s not only us — all the clubs and managers want to sign players, must refresh the squad.

“We need to try again in January or the summer if we want to move on the team and the club.”

Spurs are in a great position in the Premier League as we are just a couple of points behind the league leaders.
