Craig Dawson and the other defenders had a tricky late afternoon in north London but the 31 year old was disappointed at a defeat when he believes the team might have taken more from the game.

After a particularly  difficult start, the Hammers went on to enjoy several spells where they saw plenty of the ball and created several presentable chances.

Saïd Benrahma’s crisp first time volley– which was assisted by Dawson’s header from a corner kick – had given them hope and their , their drive and persistence remained admirable given the challenging circumstances after Thursday night’s epic effort against Sevilla.

Sadly a second goal was not to come despite a fierce finish to the first half which offered promise for the second half but it didn’t happen and Spurs the second 45 and went on to take a three point lead over us.

Thankfully, a squad which is clearly stretched will now get a break and,discussing the game afterwards, Daws said: ”

“We didn’t start the game well and we gave them two goals really, so that was disappointing. We were disappointed to concede two goals early on in the match, but we showed character to get the goal back and have a lot of possession.

“I think we grew into the game. We obviously got the goal back and had a lot of possession after that, we just didn’t find that final ball or that little bit of quality in the box – but the lads worked hard.

“Being 2-0 down took away from the plan we had before the game, but it was good to get the goal back, and after that we had a lot of possession – we just didn’t quite take that chance.”
