Sam Allardyce insists Sunday’s 3-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane is his biggest triumph as West Ham boss.

Second-half goals from Winston Reid, Ricardo Vaz Te and Ravel Morrison sealed a first-win at White Hart Lane for 14 years for the Hammers and subsequently ended a run of eight Premier League games away from Boleyn Ground without a win.

And Allardyce believes the manner in which the game was won tops the play-off final win over Blackpool and last season’s home victory over Chelsea.

He told “I think that is my best result as West Ham manager.

“To come to Spurs and see the team that they have assembled this year, having spent over £100million, and what they have achieved up to now with only conceding two goals and their results in Europe and in the league, that was a magnificent victory.

“For us, that’s probably the best result I’ve had since we’ve been in the Premier League.”

And Allardyce also has no doubts that the win was well deserved, and believes his side can get another positive result when Manchester City when they visit the Boleyn Ground in two weeks time.

“Let’s make no mistake about this, we deserved it,” Allardyce added.

“We frustrated Tottenham and frustrated their fans and scored three different types of goals.

“They [Manchester City] can be beaten. Aston Villa and Cardiff have beaten them, so we take confidence from this result. They have lost two away from home and conceded five goals in those two games, so there is an opportunity there to capitalise on.”
