Andre Ayew named Man-of-the-Match in West Ham win over Tottenham

Ghana ace Andre Ayew was named the Man-of-the-Match when West Ham produced a sensational comeback to defeat Tottenham 3-2 in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday.

Ayew was the standout performer as they produced the sensational comeback at Wembley Stadium.

The Ghanaian scored twice to help Hammers score three times in 15 second-half minutes to turn a 2-0 deficit into a 3-2 victory that propelled Slaven Bilic’s team into the quarter finals of the Carabao Cup.

For Bilic, struggling to save his job past the weekend, this was a rousing show of strength from a much-changed team that had looked shot at half-time as Tottenham Hotspur scored twice while barely flexing their muscles.

Instead West Ham surged back and produced one of the great Carabao Cup nights, led by a ragged but rousing captain’s performance from Mark Noble, and some energetic opportunism from Andre Ayew, who scored twice.
