West Ham stun Spurs with second-half fightback as three goals in 15 minutes turn game on its head and ease pressure on Bilic

As Angelo Ogbonna’s winning goal settled into the back of the Tottenham net, West Ham goalkeeper Adrian set off up field to join in the celebrations.

Briefly, he paused as if remembering that this was only the Carabao Cup. But then he was back in full flight. Sometimes, a winning goal is just a bit more important than it looks on paper.

And who knows how important this one may turn out to be for Slaven Bilic? At half-time, the great Croat looked beaten and bowed. The West Ham manager has looked this way for a while now but here at Wembley it looked very bad indeed.
