West Ham boss David Moyes to BBC MOTD:

"Both teams put an awful lot of effort into the game to try to get the winner. It was a tight game, a London derby and Tottenham are a very good side. I thought the team did a good job.

"We were a threat from open play and set-pieces. Their possession is difficult to deal with but I thought we did well defensively.

"I think we had most of the play for the first two or three minutes and [their goal] was the first time they were in the box. We showed resilience tonight. We had much more structure to the defence. We have good players up front and are not bad from set-pieces so can try to get something from it. We were a bit unlucky not to nick something at the end."

On Kurt Zouma: "He did a brilliant job on [Son Heung-min] tonight. We wanted people to stand up. We wanted some leadership and the two centre-halves played really well tonight.

"We feel as if we dropped some points last weekend but we've now taken four off Tottenham this season. If you'd have told me that before the start of the season I'd have shaken your hand and walked away.

"I'm pleased with the point because we needed it. This time of the year there is a lot of draws with so many people fighting for different things. Picking up points is never easy."

On Jarrod Bowen: "He's been marvellous for us. Every game he's top. He's a threat and is a great lad - he tries to do all the work for the team. He's in top form at the moment."
