'We reacted in the most brilliant way' - Hammers fight back to stun Spurs

West Ham manager Slaven Bilic said his side "reacted in the most brilliant way" after coming from two goals down at half-time to beat London rivals Tottenham and reach the Carabao Cup quarter-finals.


Bilic has been under pressure following their Premier League drubbing by Brighton at London Stadium on Friday, but was enthused by the reaction to their abject first-half showing against Spurs.

Striker Andre Ayew netted twice from close range and Angelo Ogbonna nodded in the third from a corner to complete a stunning turnaround.

They had got off to the worst possible start at Wembley, conceding after just five minutes as a high defensive line was exploited by Son Heung-min's pass through to Moussa Sissoko to stroke home.

Dele Alli had a close-range header tipped away by goalkeeper Adrian, but the Tottenham midfielder curled in a deflected second before half-time from the edge of the box following neat build-up play by Son.
