Stewart Downing's delight following West Ham United's victory at Tottenham Hotspur
10:51am Tuesday 8th October 2013 in Sport
Stewart Downing has praised West Ham’s approach at Spurs on Sunday and believes the Hammers could have scored more goals in their shock 3-0 victory.
Winston Reid, Ricardo Vaz Te and a memorable Ravel Morrison individual effort fired Sam Allardyce’s men to their first win at White Hart Lane since 1999 and the England winger said his side “really, really fancied it”.
"I think we came with a bit of a plan and it worked really well," Downing told West Ham TV. "With the goals, we could probably have had a few more, while we limited Tottenham to maybe one or two chances.
"It's a good day for us but before we definitely really, really fancied it. With the players we had, we didn't have a target man but the system was flexible. With Vaz and Ravel, they got in higher up and got their goals. I think it worked with the personnel that we had.
"I think we played very well and defended well. We counter-attacked and could have had four or five goals."
