Terry Westley praised the way his U23 side turned their performance around to beat Tottenham Hotspur on Monday having come back from 2-0 down to win 3-2.

The Academy Director was left mightily disappointed after Spurs put themselves in a comfortable position during the first half, outplaying the Hammers in every department.

But after some stern words at the break – which the boss declined to repeat – the visitors came out firing and scored three quick goals to turn the game on its head.

Dan Kemp halved the deficit just four minutes into the second period before Nathan Holland equalised with a screamer from long range.

Centre-back Josh Pask then stunned Tottenham, volleying home after Tunji Akinola’s knock-down to make it 3-2 and the Hammers held on to win their first Premier League 2 Division 1 three point-haul.

A Toni Martinez hat-trick helped West Ham United’s U23s seal an emphatic 4-2 victory over Manchester United.

The Hammers youngsters hosted the Red Devils in their first London Stadium fixture of the season and despite going behind twice, went on to secure all three points thanks to the Spanish striker’s three goals and Joe Powell’s first of the season.

Prolific frontman Martinez now has eight goals in ten U23 appearances this season and deservedly took home the match ball after a stunning display in front of 1,483 supporters.

The clash began in the worst possible fashion for the hosts, however. Ricky Sbragia’s men instantly got on the front foot and took the lead just two minutes in when Demetri Mitchell scored from Indy Boonen’s through ball.

West Ham responded brilliantly, however to the United pressure and after 26 minutes, they were level.

Powell swung in an inviting delivery, and after Manchester United were unable to clear, poacher Martinez pounced and smashed through the keeper’s legs.

 

Now looking in the ascendancy, it came as a surprise when the Hammers were pegged back eleven minutes later. Mitchell was again the scorer, following in James Wilson’s long shot which was fumbled by Trott and tapped home by the winger.

Nathan Holland was the architect of the Hammers equaliser, the winger, drifting inside and out of United full-back Joe Riley, eventually found space to curl in a beautiful delivery which West Ham’s star striker was able to power in with his head.

And within two minutes of the restart, predictably, Martinez had his third. Edimilson Fernandes, left Luke Shaw on the United left for dead, getting to the byline and crossing into the six-yard-box. Martinez – in the right place at the right time – crashed home the header to give the Hammers the lead for the first time. With 25 minutes remaining, Fernandes, stepped it up a gear as Manchester United began to tire, stretched the visitors’ defence and charged towards the box, laying it on a plate for Powell to sidefoot home and complete the scoring.

Manchester United:

O'Hara, Riley, Shaw, Warren, Scott (Hamilton), Whelan, Boonen (Williams), Kehinde, Wilson (Bouhi), Buffonge, Mitchell.
