David Moyes had his men stacked at the back and moving well with Spurs’ usually incisive passing game.
An early chance was cleared by West Ham youngster Declan Rice, and a legit scoring opportunity didn’t arrive until the 28th minute when Kane curled a shot toward the far corner that Adrian punched out of the 18.
Serge Aurier headed down for Kane in a superb set-up, but the English striker didn’t shoot first time and touched it out of play.
The last chance of an attack-starved half saw Adrian tip Christian Eriksen‘s deflected shot over goal, as the half finished with Spurs holding an 11-0 disparity in shot attempts.
A sluggish second half broke open for a moment when Javier Hernandez found plenty of green in the 60th minute, only to be closed down by Davinson Sanchez.
Kane had chance after chance, with a couple for Dele Alli thrown in, but whether offside or denied by West Ham’s defense — Pablo Zabaleta and Winston Reid prominently — it was still scoreless in the 70th minute… for Spurs.
